The sale of OCEAN EYES, a 2019 Passport Vista 545 Center Cockpit, presents a rare opportunity to step into a like-new boat with warranties and every detail well thought of and prepared for her next owners.
The Passport 545 Center Cockpit was the Cruising World Boat of the Year in 2012 as well as Sail Magazines Best Boat winner in 2012 at her debut. Judge Alvah Simon said, "I consider this boat a contender for Best Value because there’s that kind of quality and equipment built into it,” said Simon. “The attention to detail is stunning. It’s a piece of art you leave out in the rain.”
Over 32,000 man hours go into the build of each 545, from its solid hull(no core), best in class wood work and joinery with Cherry hardwood used throughout, all the way up to the Selden mast, no expense has been spared in the build of Ocean Eyes.
