"No list of well-endowed cruising boats would be complete without including a design from Robert H. Perry. He’s given us many from which to choose, and the Passport 40 makes a fine example. I like Perry’s generous keels and robust skeg-hung rudders, and he certainly has an eye for a sweet line and a sweet-sailing hull. Passport Yachts has spent three decades building a reputation for solid boats, and it’s still doing just that. You can’t say that about many companies that were building boats in Taiwan in the 1970s and 1980s." ~ Jeremy McGeary for Cruising World

"Good weather should be reserved for sailing, not varnishing! The Passport 40 has just enough teak to make the boat extremely handsome but not burdensome.
A primary design concern was to set the boat up for short-handed or single-handed sailing. Triple turning blocks and sheet stoppers lead all lines aft to the cockpit equipped with all self tailing winches. Also, the sail plan was designed so that the boat will sail well under the main alone.
... molded in diamond pattern non-skid on the cabin top. Innovative teak inlay in the cockpit seats and combing provide additional safety and beauty. A dodger lip has been molded into the one piece deck mold for ease of dodger installation.
The innovative LPG bottle locker provides space for all valves and controls and is vented directly overboard" ~ Passport 40 Brochure

"The design emphasis of the Passport 40 was on live-aboard comfort without compromising on sailing ability or safety at sea. However, it goes without question that all yachts involve compromise. The Passport 40 was laid out with this in mind. Interior space was prioritized and allocated according to use: how much time does one spend in the head compared to the salon area?...how many times does one prepare a meal at sea compared to cooking at anchor or dockside? This approach to design resulted in a yacht of exceptional comfort and livability." ~ Passport 40 Brochure
"Upon entering the Passport 40 one of the most impressive features is her light and roomy interior. Few yachts of this size offer as much living space. The 8' galley is large enough for two people to work comfortably in together. Cooking on the Passport 40 is a pleasure, not a chore." Passport 40 Brochure

"The large forward stateroom features a double berth that is easy to get into and just as easy to make up. Large drawers and lockers are built in below the berth. Opposite the berth are hanging lockers and bureau with a mirror above it..." ~ Passport 40 Brochure
"The head and shower are forward in an area not generally well suited for other functions. The head is very well laid out with gross dimensions greater than many heads located further aft. There is abundsant storage for towels, linen, first aid supplies..." ~ Passport 40 Brochure
"The aft cabin is ideal for guests or as a sea berth when cruising. It features plenty of storage and a large wet locker. (Foul weather gear really fits!)..." ~ Passport 40 Brochure
