Design and Development
Westport maintains a large in-house design and development staff of naval architects, marine engineers and design specialists, who work closely with the industry’s most respected independent designers. The result is known, consistently superior performance, structural integrity, contemporary style and efficient interior arrangement.
Westport yachts are built at three separate yards, where teams concentrate on a limited number of configurations to meet the highest standards of quality. Additionally, Westport’s specialized cabinet and carpentry shop serves yard operations with exquisite joinery, worthy of the most lavish custom build.
Before the first hull is built in any new series, Westport invests heavily in the design of every aspect of the build, from tooling and process flow to patterning for systems installation and major components. This commitment ensures first-time-through accuracy for superior fit, finish and detail.
A Heritage of Excellence
Westport’s skilled workforce includes many veterans with decades of experience, and spans generations of employee families. The quality of their work has become a signature of the Westport brand … and the assurance of a well-built yacht.
Superyacht Standards of Quality & Luxury
Westport’s commitment to quality construction is widely recognized, by leading yachting publications, and even by other yacht builders.
Between 1984 and 1997, Westport built scores of hulls for some of the industry’s most respected yards, whose own quality standards could accept nothing less. Most importantly, that quality is equally well-known to a growing circle of experienced owners who have made Westport their choice … and to an equally fast-growing group of repeat buyers who recognize the Westport experience as the standard for others to follow.
While many yacht builders have come and gone over the past four decades, Westport has endured, emerging as a world leader among large-yacht brands, and so have Westport’s people.
Today, Westport counts many second-and third-generation employees, and many workers with thirty years’ tenure or more, for a level of experience rarely matched in the industry, assurance of first-class workmanship and an exceptionally well-built yacht.
