Passport 40 Sailboat For Sale in San Diego ::: Just in from the south seas by way of Hawaii this Bob Perry 40' Passport is as clean as they come.

If you want to travel the world, you'd better have a Passport! In this case, we're talking about the Passport 40 currently berthed at Harbor Island West in San Diego. This beauty is feeling cramped in her slip and is ready to stretch her legs again. Unlike many San Diego boats, she is not a dock princess. She has just returned from adventures in the South Pacific after being extensively upgraded by her current and loving owners. There is no "form over function" about her either. In fact, she is not only cosmetically in amazing condition but most of her most important elements have already been done for you. 

"But how much is it going to cost to get the boat ready for blue water cruising?" -  The answer is very little at this point. Luckily for you, her current owners have taken care of almost everything you'd need to think about to make a passage. Not only have they already installed these things on the boat, but they've already tested it out on a cruise for you. 

  • Solar Power? CHECK
  • Water Maker? CHECK
  • Chainplates? CHECK
  • Newer Sails? CHECK
  • Wind Vane? CHECK

With her modified fin keel and skeg hung rudder Bella Nave is ready for her next adventure. Outfitted with a Monitor wind vane, Spectra water maker and 560 watts of solar panels for starters, 4 year old Carol Hasse - Port Townsend sails, Iverson's Design Custom dodger and bimini and a Perkins 4-108 diesel you will find all in good order.

Chainplates have been replaced within the last 4 years and rigging inspected 2 years ago. You will NOT need to spend thousands of dollars getting underway to enjoy this renown blue water cruiser.

The Passport 40 is designed for live-aboard comfort, re-noun sea-keeping ability and safety at sea. With hand helds logically located throughout the boat the  interior space is a combination of traditional style with modern comforts, and offers privacy with two cabins. 


Two large forward opening deck hatches and two additional opening hatches, 4 electric fans, 10 opening portlights (all re-bedded) allow for cross ventilation. The Dickinson Antarctic diesel heater located at the base of the companionway will keep the whole boat warm.

Solid teak joinery, solid teak cabin doors with hand carved scene carved into door leading to the forward berth. Louvered locker doors to all lockers provide for well ventilated storage, all lockers serviced by "dri-deck", again ensuring for additional ventilation.  1/2" laid teak and holly cabin sole. Overhead paneled with new painted white wood strip headliner . All cushions have had the foam replaced with closed cell foam. 

The L-shaped dinette with a large fold-up teak table provides excellent access around the dinette when entertaining your guests. There is storage behind the settees as well as bookshelves and cabinets outboard of the settees. The dinette table can be totally removed to allow for amazing access to the diesel engine. Opposite the dinette is a settee (starboard). Lee-cloths make it a safe sea berth.

A large forward stateroom features a double Pullman berth to port with custom mattress and an electric fan. Large drawers and lockers are built in below the berth. Opposite the berth are hanging lockers and bureau with a mirror above it. The cabin is served by the head forward of the cabin.
