A Yacht Builder of Mega Yacht Resources

Similarly, series production of motoryachts enables the builder to distribute development costs among several units, and therefore to justify a sizable investment in naval architecture, styling and interior design, to engineer and document the build down to the last detail, and to acquire the ideal infrastructure-molds, fixtures, equipment ... even buildings - for unsurpassed precision and control throughout the entire construction process.

Not many builders have the size and resources to make the kind of investment necessary to implement true series production. Westport does ... and the advantages are many.
