Satin varnished teak paneled traditional styled accommodation for 11 guests in four cabins plus six crew in three cabins forward.
Master cabin aft with twin beds with lounge and study
3 Double guests cabins that can easily be converted into twins - all with Pullman berths.
Very spacious accommodation providing excellent comfort and ideally suited for extended world cruising and navigation in colder climates.
The large saloon midships adjacent to the open plan wheel house is well illuminated in natural light from the large side windows and features a large L-shaped sofa for 8 guests to starboard which can also function as a dining area when the large hydraulically controllable teak coffee table is raised and extended into a dining table in a single movement.
To port there is a card table adjacent to the bar and the entrance from the aft deck and also access to the aft guest cabins and the day toilet.
Moving aft into the guest accommodation there is a day toilet to starboard and two identical twin cabins, each with Pullman berths. The twin beds can easily be converted into a queen size double bed by removing the center table. En-suite bathrooms with two sinks and shower in white coriander with gold plated fittings.
Further aft one enters the spacious master cabin via the private lounge adjacent to the dresser and a small study opposite next to the bathroom providing optimal comfort and privacy for the owner.
The master cabin is fitted with two large twin beds instead of a king bed size in order to provide optimal comfort when cruising. Plans have been made for an alternative design with a double bed in lieu of the current configuration. The large aft window offers ample natural light and the sheer size of the cabin is very unusual for a 42 meter sailing yacht. The spacious bathroom is bright and fitted with a shower and two sinks.
Forward of the saloon leads either up to the open plan wheel house or going down to the fourth twin guest cabin also fitted with a Pullman berth and en-suite bathroom.
Wheel House and crew accommodation:
The large wheelhouse follows the design of the rest of the interior and offers an excellent view and the large helm position and chart table area with comfortable seating is ideally suited for long passages and there is easy access to the deck from the side doors to port and starboard.
The spacious galley can either be accessed via the wheelhouse or directly from the saloon in order to provide the optimal service for guests.
Fitted with 5 fridges, 4 freezers and a large gimbaled commercial oven and an induction stove plus plate warmer and heating lamp the guests are assured excellent cuisine for any length of stay onboard.
As with the entire yacht there is tremendous storage space easily accessible.
Aft of the galley underneath the helm station there is the immaculate engine room with a finish showing the best the Dutch craftsmen and engineers can achieve further helped by the meticulous maintenance by the crew.
Forward of the galley is the large crew mess comfortably seating 6 crew.
The large captain's cabin is of a size normally seen on motor yachts and is likely to make most sailing yacht captain envious. Forward there are two comfortable twin crew cabins with en-suite facilities.
Deck and cockpit areas:
Passe Partout offers unobstructed deck space like few other sailing yachts ideally suited for sunbathing and storage of kayaks, lasers dinghies or even jet skis.
Passe Partout was among the first yachts featuring a fly bridge cockpit providing the best location when under sail or at anchor apart from providing privacy for the guests so often lacking on sailing yachts.
The well protected cockpit with the structural hardtop and removable vinyl side covers seats 12 guests at the two teak tables.
Forward of the main mast there is the semi-enclosed tender bay equipped with a hydraulic crane for easy launching of the large 6 meter diesel Novurania tender.
The passarelle can also-be lowered and used as a bathing ladder from the aft deck.
