Passport 42 Sailboat For Sale
Reluctantly, we've decided that Summer Rose should have younger owners. We've sailed her north to Alaska, to the southern end of New Zealand, and many places between. With very little preparation, she can do it again. We never found conditions that the boat couldn't handle with ease, including hurricane-force winds and heavy seas.
Built in 1988, the moderate-displacement design is known for its seaworthiness, quality of fittings above- and below-decks, extraordinary storage capacity, and superb hand-crafted teak below. She has a modified full keel, a rudder hung on a separate skeg, and a canoe stern, providing a comfortable yet responsive vessel. The hull is ruggedly built of hand-laid fiberglass, plywood cored in the deck and cabin roof.
As a cutter, she typically sails under main, 130% genoa, and staysail. This combination, and roller-furling on the genoa, permits great flexibility. Three reef points are provided, for jiffy slab reefing.
Summer Rose is readily sailed single- or short-handed. Steering at sea is done by the Alpha Marine Systems autopilot or the Cap Horn wind vane self-steering--both outstandingly reliable and responsive.
Below-decks, the boat features the finest hand-crafted Burmese teak interior, accommodation for 2 couples and 2 singles, and excellent headroom.
