The owners of Minot have just authorized a major price reduction on this amazing yacht just in time for the 2018 sailing season! This stunningly beautiful Passport Vista 585 Twin Cockpit is the latest addition to the world famous Passport family of semi-custom yachts. Quality and class flow through every inch of the new Passport Vista 585 TC. Our unsurpassed experience in building some of the world s finest bluewater cruising sailboats, combined with the talents of leading designer Bill Dixon, have created a superb center cockpit, shoal draft, high performance, open ocean capable yacht of the highest caliber.

Most importantly, however, careful assessment of this Passport 585 s overall build quality relative to her price will represent to any buyer a remarkably unparalleled value in today s market when comparing her to any of today s other high-end yacht builders. Minot is in essentially new condition and she is worth a look for any discerning buyer.

A twin steering system combined with a double helm and well-contained cockpit adds an extra degree of safety for both crew and guests. The carefully engineered access cockpit leads directly astern to a reverse transom with built in steps to a large boarding platform and easy water access, directly forward to a spacious teak dining table that easily seats 8 and houses plenty of storage along with a built in cooler space, and directly to the port or starboard deck for unimpeded access to both decks as well as dock and launch access. Despite her size, Minot has never required captained use and can be easily sailed from the cockpit and handled by a two person crew. All controls are available within easy reach of both helms, and all relevant instruments, including repeaters, have been carefully placed within easy sight and access as well.

As with all Passport yachts, each is designed to meet the lifestyle characteristics of every individual owner and their family. Minot has been designed as a capable, ocean going blue water offshore yacht that can handle a large family. She is extremely well appointed with handcrafted wood inlays, all imaginable luxuries, state of the art instrumentation, and mechanical equipment, and her carefully considered 4 stateroom configuration, shoal draft, reinforced hull, and high aspect carbon fiber rig were specifically designed to enable safe but high performance sailing in both far offshore as well as gunk-holing conditions. This Passport Vista 585TC is truly a masterpiece.

As with all Passports, the interior has been completely customized to suit its intended usage and lifestyle. Over the years, Passport's hallmark has been to create very individualized custom interiors for each of its clients and as such no two Passports are exactly alike; Minot is no exception. Her interior was designed with comfort, privacy, hospitality, and convenience in mind. Forward there is a spacious guest stateroom with a V shaped berth for two singles that converts to an oversized king berth for a couple. There are two hanging lockers, large drawers and overhead lockers. Aft of the forward stateroom is another stateroom to starboard. This stateroom has a double berth two very large drawers under the berth, a large hanging locker, and end table with drawers. Above is a pull-out single berth. Directly opposite to port is the guest bath with a large shower stall, granite vanity top, stainless steel sink, designer faucets, fresh and saltwater flush electric toilet, mirrored lockers, and drawers. The main saloon has an expansive dining area with a large cherry wood table with custom inlaid compass rose atop a custom stainless steel base. A fixed, but removable bench sits centerline at the table and a very large settee curves around the large dining table. This raised saloon area offers lots of light and a view through the large tinted wrap around windows or through the two hull ports. It can easily seat a family of 8 for any meal, and the room is equipped with custom cabinetry which houses the latest in Bose stereo entertainment, including a surround sound system, DVD player, I-pod device, and Satellite TV access. Two comfortable chairs are to port with an end table between. The forward chair also faces forward to an easily accessible and tastefully appointed navigation station, where multiple relevant instrument repeaters can be found, Chelsea brass clock and barometer, separate common use electrical panel, and navigation table with custom inlay of Minot half model. Adjacent to the nav table is also a hanging locker designed for out of sight storage and easy access of fishing rods and reels. Immediately aft of the nav station are two built in lounge chairs centered around a tasteful game console with custom wood cabinetry, inlaid wood chess/checker table, and adjacent custom covered ice maker.

There are large storage lockers and cabinets outboard port and starboard and storage beneath and behind the settees.The cushions are upholstered in Ultra Leather. A large flat screen smart TV is mounted on the main bulk head for easy viewing from the saloon and galley. The custom stepped companionway can be easily moved to access the battery bank below a custom honeycomb teak grate, as well as the lowest part of the bilge designed to enable someone to climb into and stand on if necessary. There is also forward entry into the engine room here when necessary, along with a custom wood wine rack for stored bottles. Immediately adjacent to the companionway is a custom hanging wet locker for all rain gear and other immediate need equipment that can be reached from the cockpit.

To port and aft of the chairs is the combination fourth stateroom and workroom. A long cushioned berth is purposefully covered below the cushion by a stainless steel liner to facilitate offshore marine repair work when necessary. Storage lockers outboard flank the berth, along with instrumentation for the generator and an auxiliary AC/DC electrical panel. Below the berth/worktable is a combination washer-dryer, storage cabinets,and abundant drawers.

Opposite and centerline to this stateroom can be found the double door opening walk in engine and mechanical room.This easily entered and accessed room was carefully designed to enable ready engine and mechanical repair and inspection, and is a joy to work in. Most necessary equipment has been placed in directly line of site and immediate access, along with custom step and stainless grab rail. The room houses not only the180hp Volvo diesel engine but also the 10KW Mase generator, electrical panels, fuel and water manifolds, and Fireboy system.

To starboard off the main saloon is the modern fully functional walk-thru gourmet galley with excellent lighting via an in hull centered port, excellent ventilation via well placed stainless coach roof opening ports, custom granite wrap around countertops with backsplash to avoid water damage from spills, and all stainless appliances including a full stand-up refrigerator, microwave oven, built in freezer dishwasher, LPG stove with oven, trash compactor, built-in espresso machine,custom silverware drawer, and lockers for stemware.

Centered aft is a palatial owner's stateroom, with a king size centerline berth. There are two large hanging lockers, an upholstered seat and desk to port and a vanity with mirror with swing out seat to starboard and lots of cabinets and drawers. To port can be found a business work station and built in desk, accompanied by a built in hidden safe to aft. Excellent lighting and ventilation, as can be found throughout the boat, are afforded here by in hull ports, opening coach roof ports, and hatches. Custom Chelsea wall clock, barometer, and temperature highlight the forward wall within easy view of the occupants. The in-suite private bath has a granite top vanity, lighted vanity mirrored cabinets, electric toilet, and a large walk in shower stall with custom teak seating.
