Passport Vista 545CC
Systems expert Ed Sherman said the theme carried over to features that were less obvious, as well.... “The craftsmanship is outstanding, from the electrical panel to the valves and manifolds right down to the finish of the bilges. Of all the boats we inspected this year, there’s no question that this is the one with the highest potential as a true ocean passagemaker.........Just add water.""Ed Sherman: Boat of the Year Judge 2012
NEW PASSPORT VISTA 545 CENTER COCKPIT
Two panels of independent judges for both SAIL and Cruising World magazines have confirmed what we have known all along, the Passport Vista 545 Centre Cockpit is simply the best full size cruising yacht being made today.
Wherever your dreams may lead, your PASSPORT will take you there in safety, speed, comfort and head-turning style.
Our latest new hull design features a reverse walk up transom and raised deck house. This thoroughly modern and stylish yacht offers an abundance of room and comfort yet keeps a sleek, low profile. The modern reverse transom will appeal to those who prefer a contemporary look to our incredibly popular Vista 515.
"Truly a modern world-class cruising yacht with all of the quality and custom touches you have come to expect from a Passport."
The high tech composite hull and deck are designed for speed, comfort and the highest level of safety. The Vista series sail plan with its Solent headsail design and mainsail furling system are unparalleled in ease of handling and efficiency.
Although modern in their specification, Passports are still built by old world craftsman skilled in the art of fine yacht building. From the safety features of the custom fabricated stainless steel deck fittings to hand crafted raised panel and louvered doors, every detail large and small is taken into consideration.
Thom Wagner, President Passport Yachts..."Our interiors are not modular in construction but hand built, piece-by-piece, to create an interior that flows flawlessly from stem to stern."
Alvah SImon, Cruising World Judge commented..."This is a very high quality boat. I realise that it sounds expensive initially, but consider the resale value, aftermarket maintenance and all the many costs that are incurred by the average boat owner over the years, also consider the time that many sailors sit in marinas waiting for parts. You can't quantify the extent of this financially, but it is an important point and one that will not be an issue with a Passport Yacht."
Paul Nielsen, SAIL Magazine commented..."These Passport Yachts are custom-built boats on a semi-production hull, which makes it possible to have the layout and rig of your choice without the cost of designing the entire vessel from the keel up.The fittings are sculptures of stainless steel that do their jobs elegantly and efficiently...even the fixed solid stainless windshield is a beautiful structure."
Ed Sherman, Systems Expert remarked.."You'd be hard pressed to find an equivalent yacht in this size range at twice the price."
As with all Passports, the interior can be completely customized to suit your intended usage and lifestyle. Over the years our hallmark has alway been to create very individualized custom interiors for each of our clients and as such, no two Passports are exactly alike, they are by definition a true reflection of their owners exacting requirements. Planning and customizing your yacht involves teamwork between the owner, designer and builder.
From the day you make your purchasing decision, you will work as a partner with the professionals at Passport Yachts to create the yacht of your dreams.
