The Ship - 1984 Passport 47 Aft Cockpit

"Koinonia" (pronounced: key-nohn-nee-ah) is a first generation 1984 Passport 47, aft cockpit with two staterooms, plus a quarter berth.  The boat is hull#7 of 14 built and was designed by the venerable Robert H. Perry. We are big fans of Bob's designs for their proven seaworthiness, great sailing characteristics, thoughtful interiors, and aesthetics.  We have admired his work long before our search began for a liveaboard cruising sailboat.


We first befriended Bob on Facebook and later hired him to help us refine our search for a boat for our family of five. We think the Passport 47 represents some of Bob's best work and Passport Yachts are considered a fine builder of cruising boats. In the mid-eighties, they were building the Passport 47 at the King Dragon Yard in Taipei Hsien, Taiwan. The boats are very stoutly built, perform well on all points of sail, and have a solid teak interior and above average joinery

Koinonia is under contract, pending sale in June of 2024 as our family begins to transition to land-based life on an RV.

We have not been able to locate line drawings with the interior layout of our boat, so we created this one using the images we found online.  According to Bob Perry, Passport had a draftsman who could do a respectable job of modifying the interior layouts for their clients, so it's likely most of these early model PP47s were semi-custom builds.  Regardless of how the layout came about, it works well for our family of five.
