"Wayfarer" a 1984 Passport 40 is offered for sale. The vessel is situated at Fremantle Sailing Club. The yacht is ready to go, either coastal cruising or the longer journey. Priced for a quick sale. An inspection of this vessel will not dissapoint.
Wayfarer is a Passport 40, a 12m Cruising yacht, built in Taiwan in 1984 with the electrics installation being carried out in America. Wayfarer was sold at the Sydney Boat show in 1985 and featured in an article in the Sailboat Tests magazine in that year. A copy of this review is available on request.
The Passport 40 was designed by Robert Perry well known worldwide for a number of his designs, and built in Taiwan under the supervision of Wendell Rankin also well known in the sailing fraternity.
The Passport 40's strength is reaching and running combined with a thoughtful and functional interior - perfect for the cruising yachtsman.
It has superb live-aboard comfort. Below decks is where Wayfarer comes into its own with meticulous attention to detail both in design and finish. Solid teak and white contrast to provide a light and stylish ambience throughout.
The 'U' shaped galley is much larger than most, allowing for a three burner stove and oven, 2 deep sinks, hot and cold pressurised water, deep stowage lockers and lots of free bench space. Storage lockers and drawers around the galley provide storage for food, all the cooking and eating utensils required. The fridge and freezer are 12V, 240V and in addition an engine Danfoss compressor whilst underway. They have both top and side access.
There is a large, separate, forward facing navigation area with an impressive array of instruments. The head is well laid out with a smart vanity and a separate self-contained shower unit with standing headroom.
Access to the engine is superb with the engine being located under the saloon table with inspection doors on 3 sides, enabling checks to be easily made. The table and engine cover can be easily and totally removed for all round access to the engine area if needed.
There is ample storage throughout the vessel.
