"Venture" is a beautiful example of a Passport 41 and is hull number four of the original series. Venture was originally designed by, and built for, the owner of Passport Yachts and was equipped with a taller rig than the original Passport 40's. She is the only Passport 41 designed with two separate enclosed heads and two sleeping cabins. Her owner's cabin was designed with a larger berth and an expanded head as well as lots of personal storage. She has a pleasing traditional low profile hull form with graceful sheer and a reverse transom coupled with a powerful foward raked bow. She is a delight to sail and well set up for day sailing or months at sea. She is hand built with solid teak staving and a solid teak and holly cabin sole. There were no veneers used in this boat, only first grade solid teak which is in excellent condition. She has no teak decks but does have just the right amount of exterior accents. Venture is now with her third, and knowledgeable owner and ready to give her next owners years or decades of service at a third of replacement cost.
VENTURE IS NOW IN RHODE ISLAND AND CAN BE SAILING FOR THE 2018 SEASON.
The teak accommodations below are comfortable and plush, meticulously joined and elegantly finished. Teak ceilings grace the hull sides and are complimented by a solid teak and holly sole. The interior layout boasts 6' 5" headroom. A head forward arrangment with shower, followed by a "pullman" berth to port with haniging lockers to starboard. The main saloon is next aft and includes a wrap-around "U" shaped dinette to port. A new teak folding cockpit table that can also be installed in the salon in place of the larger, full size teak table. The large dinette table stores out of the way in a recessed holder under the double Pullman berth. Opposite to starboard, are two upholstered chairs with an end table between with drawers below and a wine locker above. The aft chair is also the seat for the aft facing navigation station with a working chart table. The galley is to port of the companionway while to starboard is the full guest head.
Passport galleys are well know for their abundant storage and large amounts of counter space. There is a separate refrigerator and freezer compartment with separate top opening access. The refrigerator also has separate front opening access. The double berth guest cabin is aft in the starboard hip. There is plenty of storage in shelves, lockers and cubbies everywhere. Passports have become well know for their voluminous storage in all areas of the boat.
Portside Galley wraps around the chef securely. It offers plenty of workspace and free flowing social access to the rest of the cabin.
