Available for Sale44′ Passport Vista 51544' 2008 Passport 

The Passport Vista 515 is truly a remarkable design. Built to the highest standards, her joinery, glasswork and systems installation are second to none. Design features like shoal draft, massive tankage and an ICW-capable rig make it the ideal choice for the cruising couple. An easily handled sail plan with a Solent rig means the boat sails well in all wind conditions while being controlled from the safety of the cockpit. An internally ballasted keel and skeg-hung rudder are classic Bob Perry appendages and provide excellent tracking, stiffness and helm feel. Rubycon is a pristine example of a 515 and she has been absolutely pampered. Loaded with recent upgrades like a custom KATO dinghy arch, new dinghy, solar panels, new batteries etc. etc. Highly Recommended.

Details

Accommodations

RUBYCON has a custom saloon sole that has been raised 5" above the standard boat. This improves sightlines and provides shorter crew members the ability to see out when below, greatly enhancing the overall experience of cruising and helps in preventing motion sickness. The headroom throughout the boat is impressive.

The starboard settee is cleverly designed and can either be used as chairs or a settee depending upon the installation of the removable cordial table. The saloon table has two tabletops - a large dining table and a smaller cocktail table. Both have adjustable heights. The saloon table area converts to a full-size bed for additional sleeping accommodations.

There are two large private staterooms each with en suite heads and separate shower stalls. The boat has an oversized centerline queen berth forward with a king in the aft master stateroom. Both cabins have hanging lockers and abundant storage.

Countertops in galley are Corian (color OY718), heads, and entertainment area (color NS519). The interior is lushly upholstered in ultra-suede and the Passport trademark solid teak doors and louvered lockers, honey-colored superior grade teak veneers throughout.
