Delivering the Yachting Experience of A Lifetime

Our customers are buying an experience — adventure, relaxation, socializing and fun — as much as they're buying a product. Westport's obligation is to ensure that every yacht delivers that experience consistently from day one, and we believe that the best way to accomplish that is through sustaining a close relationship with the owner and crew of each vessel.

We have a growing number of second and third-time owners who apparently agree.

Dimensions, weight, performance and capacities where shown are approximate. Speeds, weight and other performance estimates, if shown or discussed, are estimates only and are not guaranteed. Photos may show optional equipment. Optional equipment may be shown. Specifications and equipment are subject to change without notification.
