This Bob Perry designed Passport 40 is the perfect cruising couples boat that is beautiful and strong! The current owners have undertaken a major refit since purchasing that includes updating to plumbing, wiring and replacing many of the shipboard systems. The original teak decks were removed and decks were painted with contrasting non-skid patterns. The quality of work was above average in all aspects and this yacht shows beautifully. Recent haul-out with bottom paint removed and new barrier coat and paint applied. “Iemanja” meaning “Sea Goddess” is set up for long distance, off grid cruising and features a Monitor wind vane, solar panels and wind generator as well as safety features like stern mounted life raft and man overboard devices. The full cockpit enclosure keeps the crew safe and dry while the below decks accommodations are a welcome haven in any weather. This vessel is a must see for anyone that is considering a serious cruising yacht and is available mid-atlantic in Little River, SC. Call today to arrange a personal inspection.
