2004 Passport 470 Center Cockpit
A stunning and beautiful Flag Blue Passport 47 Center Cockpit that has sailed from the USA to Europe and back again. Owners change of plans dictates the sale.
The fastidious owner has maintained her exceptionally well and it shows. If you are looking for a solid world cruising, coastal cruising, or live aboard sailboat you must make a visit to this Passport 47. No disappointment!
The wonderfully thought-out interior flows from bow to stern. Features walk-trough galley and navigation station which allows access to the master stateroom aft without disturbing the onboard chef. Starboard settee converts to easy chairs and a cocktail table. Dinette has two tabletops, larger dinette top and a smaller cocktail table with adjustable height. Two large and very private staterooms, each with a separate shower stall and privacy doors. Beautiful Corian countertops in galley and heads. Custom faucets, upholstery, and curtains. Passport trademark solid teak doors and louvered locker doors, honey colored superior grade teak veneers throughout the interior.
You step aboard the Passport 47 Center Cockpit through either the port or starboard boarding gates and onto the spacious and wide side decks. The side decks offer excellent and safe maneuverability fore and aft. The bow deck is spacious with easy access to the anchor locker and gear while the aft deck is massive with access to a stern anchor locker and the dingy davits and motor lift.
The cockpit has seating for a crowd with large settees both port and starboard and the helm seat offers excellent visibility and easy access to all engine controls and navigation tools. All lines lead aft making sailing by a couple an easy task. The area allows for lounging and having a boat cooked meal on the folding Teak table with two leaves forward of the helm. The cockpit is sun and weather protected by a dark blue bimini, dodger and connector.
Through the companionway door you enter the main cabin. All I can say is “WOW”! Extremely well-thought-out the main cabin is spacious and light. Under the companionway steps is access into the clean engine compartment with easy access for checking daily or for major repairs.
Starboard and aft is the galley area which is large and offers exceptional space for the onboard chef. Plenty of countertop room for preparing most any gourmet meal. You can enter aft stateroom through the galley. The aft cabin is massive with a centered queen size berth, ample cabinet, and drawer spaces and plenty of natural light and ventilation. Along the port side is access into the head compartment. You can also enter the head compartment down the port side companionway from the salon. The head offers two separate areas. First has the vanity and toilet and the forward is the separate shower stall. Privacy doors port and starboard keep the aft cabin private and quiet.
Forward and to port is the navigation station with cabinet and desk storage. The seat faces forward and allows for excellent communication with guests in the salon. The salon is large with port side settee with outboard storage and cabinets while to starboard is a unique settee that can be used as two separate chairs with the addition of the centered removeable cocktail table or it can be used as a single settee. Centered is a beautiful salon table with two tops. One for dining and one for a cocktail table. The table can be lowered. Further forward is the V-Berth with plenty of room for storage with cabinets and drawers. The V-Berth has a private head with a separate shower stall.
Main electrical panel is located at the navigation station.
Excellent engine compartment access with 3-sided access under companionway steps and both side of the engine. The engine compartment features lead foam insulation for significant noise reduction.
