""There is an immediate feeling of luxury as you step below decks, which comes from the unstinted use of teak and meticulous attention to detail.
Under sail....there is no doubt about her available power - despite some enthusiastic gusts, she showed no signs of losing her grip....
Under engine the Passport cruised comfortably at 8.5 knots with a top speed of 9.1 knots.""David Pugh Yachting World
Passport Yachts........."the world's best kept secret"
One of the reasons that Passport Yachts hold their amazing residual values is their precision-engineered construction. With high class craftsmanship and the very best materials sourced from around the world, make Passport Yachts the envy of the yacht building industry.
"You can hear a pin drop down below in a Passport Yacht when under sail, such is the strength and quality of construction of these fine yachts." Anthoney Stapley. Southampton Surveyor.
Because our yachts are built in Xiamen, we have a huge advantage by having extremely highly skilled, highly educated apprentice trained craftsmen at our disposal with lower labour rates than Europe or the USA. We therefore invest many, many more man hours into each yacht than other builders are able to do. Between 20,000 and 40,000 hours are devoted to the construction of an average custom-built Passport Vista, this represents approximately 30% to 35% more than our competitors' do. All of this extra labour is reflected in Passport's legendary attention to detail....a much over used phrase....but in this case very true and reflected throughout in the absolute breathtaking quality of the carpentry and ship's systems.
"True craftsmanship and quality is measured by what you personally see and feel....not by a photo in a glossy brochure air-brushed to perfection."
Passport Yachts superior quality is evident in hull strength, the carpentry finishes, intelligent electrical and fuel systems, over-engineered top quality deck equipment, and refined design.
"Customized s/s work" "Solid, robust twin bow-rollers" "Highly polished welds" "Superb below floor systems"
All Passport Yachts are built at our high-tech, modern facility in Xiamen;
Passport DO NOT subcontract any part of the construction to other factories. This means we stay hands-on and keep control of each manufacturing step. Our facility is huge, state-of-the-art and unparalleled in the sailboat world. Over 600 highly-skilled personnel at the factory take pride in the art of boat building, from engineering, fiberglass, electrical, plumbing, custom stainless steel work to carpentry. every aspect of the construction of the yacht takes place at our factory, nothing is left to chance.
"A new Passport owner is guaranteed to take delivery of the finest yacht it is possible to build."
All materials used for the build of all Passport's are sourced outside China and are container shipped directly to our factory. Every stage of the build from initial hull lay-up to final launch are monitored by Passport Yachts resident quality controll staff led by Graham Bowes, Passport Yachts chief engineer. All stages of production are continually checked and re-checked, until a final pre-delivery examination is carried out to ensure all systems are fully operational prior to issuance of builders certificate and shipping.
Passport Yachts offer a full 10 year hull warranty on all models, there is a very good reason for this...."because we can".... very few others can claim the same.
It is important to remember, that one has to be extremely confident of the build quality of your product to offer a 10 year hull warranty. At Passport Yachts Europe......we are and we do !
Hand built to perfection... 'simply good enough'..... is not an option, it has to be the very best it can be. Passport Yachts have been delivering excellence continually for more than 3 decades and with over 450 yachts built and all still sailing, having earned the undisputed right to be acclaimed as the most trusted name in luxury yachts.
