PASSION is one of the most sought after, successful charter yachts in the world. Her comfortable accommodations for 12 guests, excellent outdoor spaces and reliability combine to create a floating haven boasting a successful charter business.

At the forward end of the main deck is your Master Stateroom and primary VIP stateroom. Both have large King size beds and are beautifully finished throughout including ensuite bathrooms with tubs as well as showers. Below decks are four additional guest staterooms for up to 10 more guests. A full beam VIP stateroom with a King size bed is all the way aft. Forward of this is a smaller VIP stateroom with a Queen size bed and two twin staterooms, each with an extra Pullman bunk. All of the staterooms are very spacious thanks to the 30 foot beam, and each is finished and decorated beautifully.

Next to the four guest staterooms, you will find a fully outfitted gym with treadmill, elliptical machine, bike machine, free weights and a full bath, including steam shower. There is also an additional Pullman berth here for the occasional extra staff or crew member when necessary.

Passion is well equipped for watersports. With a huge assortment of tenders, water sport toys, fishing gear, and dive equipment, the yacht begs to be enjoyed at fun locations around the world. While storage is an issue on many boats, this is not a problem for the crew of Passion to meet the needs of the Owners or their abundant charter clientele.

Mechanically she is in excellent condition and well cared for. Because the boat is in constant motion with owner and charter use, all machinery and ship’s equipment is constantly being maintained, improved, or upgraded. There is almost no original equipment onboard as she was completely rebuilt in 2003 and subsequently received major refits in 2008-2009. She has reliable Caterpillar engines and generators, Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers, Bureau Veritas classification, and is MCA compliant. She is safe, reliable, and finished to a very high standard.

Not only will her new owners enjoy tremendous stability, volume and comfort, but also the ease of an ongoing, reliable, successful charter business — she has significant upcoming charters that can be included with the sale of the yacht, should her new owner wish to continue her charter success. All of this combines to make her an excellent value for any buyer.
