BVI Yacht Sales Overview

1988 Passport Yachts 40 ‘Kismet’

The Passport 40 has always been considered to be one of Robert Perry’s most popular designs. Produced from 1980 through 1991, some 150 of these fine yachts were built and earned a reputation for being a comfortable offshore cruising yacht. These Passport 40’s are highly sought after by people looking for good performance, excellent livability, supreme seaworthiness all while not too big to handle.

This particular Passport 40 series is Hull #138 and currently located in the BVI but spent the majority of her life in a freshwater environment in the Great Lakes until late 2005 when the then owners decided to do some blue water cruising and made their way down to the Caribbean. This vessel recently underwent an extensive refit by her current owner who happens to own one of the best yacht management companies in the BVI. (B&G Marine Services) All photos on the listing were taken within the last month and yes she is as nice as she looks in the photos! Likely one of the nicest Passport 40’s on the market today and 100% turn key and ready to take you to the far corners of the globe safely and comfortably.

This Passport 40 has the large pullman berth layout with head and shower in the bow. The main saloon features a wrap-around “U” shaped dinette to port with a drop down table that converts to a generous sleeping area that is nice to have while under way, and a straight settee to starboard. The galley is to port of the companionway and has the abundant storage and large amounts of counter space for which the Passport 40’s are known for. To starboard of the galley is the forward facing nav station. Just aft of the nav station is a head that can also be used as a large hanging locker. Aft to starboard is a double berth guest cabin, with 2 opening ports. 
The teak joinery is exceptional and is in great condition with a warm, polished glow. The overhead white painted teak staving gives an open, airy feeling to the boat. There is excellent headroom. There are 4 opening hatches that keep the vessel nicely ventilated, fans in all areas for those still nights in the harbor.
