1986 Passport 40
|Propulsion Type||Single Inboard|
|Location||St Kitts, St. Kitts & Nevis|
Down below, the interior feels very warm and comfortable with a nice combination of both traditional elements like teak joinery along with more modern elements like all LED lights and new salon and berth cushions.
Blue Moon features the popular layout with a pullman berth placed forward with a head at the forepeak rather than the traditional V-berth layout. The pullman berth arrangement tends to be more practical as the berth situated slightly aft is more comfortable and the head at the forepeak is a better use of space. There is a seagoing quarter berth that sleeps two in the starboard aft cabin.
The U-shaped galley to port is large and dominates the main salon area. Its functional with plenty of pantry space, two 12v Engle refrigeration units which can be used as refrigerator or freezer and twin sinks not too far from the boats centerline. The nav station is to starboard.
Further forward, the main salon area includes an L-shaped settee with a large teak table to port and a single settee opposite along with abundant storage space. The engine is located under the salon table and readily accessible.
|Cockpit, Deck & Hull|
Above deck, the Passport 40 has a sensibly designed cockpit for seagoing action. Theres room for up to four with wide seats and a coaming thats trimmed in teak, large cockpit drains and plenty of cockpit locker space. All the sail control lines are fed back into the cockpit and the main winches within easy reach of the helm.
The side decks are relatively wide with a molded-in bulwark that provides for a secure feel when moving to the fore-deck. Deck fittings tend to be solid and of top quality.
Like most GRP boats built in Taiwan of that era, the Passport 40s hull was built strong and heavy with lots of polyester resin and glass. The ballast was of iron encapsulated in GRP. Decks were originally cored in marine ply with resin barriers to limit potential for rot damage from leaks. Later boats moved to Airex foam coring. The hull-to-deck joint is bonded and through-bolted on an inward flange on the raised bulwark, theres also a steel strip embedded into the bulwark for mounting the stanchions. Bulkheads and internal furniture are fiberglassed into the hull.
|Sails & Rigging|
The Passport 40 has all the sailing characteristics of a good passage-maker. They are beautifully balanced, fast, yet preserve crew energies by being seakindly with a soft easy motion. They perform quite well in light winds and really come to life when the weather picks up, especially on the beam. Downwind they track well enough for the speed lovers to fly spinnakers under self-steering with few problems.

Introduced in 1980, the Passport 40 has become one of Robert Perrys more successful 40-footers. With their sensible interiors, quality Taiwanese build and sailing characteristics described as nimble, fast and sea-kindly, its no wonder this performance cruiser became so popular.
Blue Moon is an excellent cruising yacht with a well thought out and practical interior layout. Many updates and continued maintenance has kept this classic yacht in nice condition. She is looking for a new owner to put some new miles under her keel.
