Sailing adventures of Captain Kirk, Heidi, Tosh & Tikka...
s/v Due West
Due West is a 1982 Passport 40, a high-performance cruising sailboat designed by famous cruising yacht designer, Robert Perry from Seattle. She was built in Taiwan at the King Dragon boatyard and is a sturdy, well-designed and highly-crafted fiberglass boat.
Due West is a two-time veteran of the Victoria-Maui International Yacht Race (1990 and 1996). To date, she has raced and cruised from the Pacific North West, Puget Sound and British Columbia, Canada, to Hawaii and Mexico.
She has been a safe, sea-kindly home for almost 30-years with her modified full keel, and all teak interior. And we've never found another sailboat we would trade her for.
To learn more about Passport 40's read the Practical Sailor Review of the Passport 40 from May 1992 (a month before we purchased Due West!)
