Composite Yacht Construction
A Better Way To Build Boats
The preferred yacht & boat construction method among the most knowledgeable designers, builders and owners.
New Boat Construction Advantages.
Westport composite yacht construction maximizes the life of the yacht, reduces maintenance costs & maintenance time, & maximizes resale value & enjoyment.
Every Westport yacht features proven technology in composite construction. Westport exclusively builds all hulls and major deck parts in one-piece, precision-engineered molds. Fewer parts mean greater structural integrity and resistance to stress.
For the Westport yacht owner, that translates to year after year of enjoyable, trouble-free cruising.
All Composite Boat Building – Superior Results and Value
As a yacht builder of long standing, Westport also takes a long-term view of the future, and has invested heavily in facilities, processes, and proven technologies to secure our position at the forefront of the industry.
We were among the first to recognize the attributes of all-composite construction, and have worked closely with the composites industry, even pioneering new techniques and materials that currently are used industry-wide.
Thanks to their lighter weight, composite yachts are faster and more efficient than their comparably powered steel or aluminum counterparts.
Space-age materials give composites superior strength and impact resistance for unexcelled structural integrity. Composites can have a very high strength-to-weight ratio.
A composite structure effectively isolates and absorbs sound, reducing hull and mechanical noise levels for quiet operation. You benefit from a more enjoyable operation both while cruising and while stationary at dock or anchorage. The spread of noise and and vibrations associated with noise are reduced.
A composite yacht offers superior thermal insulation properties, making it easier to air condition for greater comfort in warm-water cruising, or to heat in cold climate cruising. Generators operate more efficiently because of reduced air conditioning loads.
Composite materials are not susceptible to rust or galvanic corrosion, and so require less maintenance than metal. You spend more time on the water while reducing the cost of upkeep.
A composite yacht offers exceptional structural integrity to ensure long life and maximum return at resale time. Advanced coring materials and resins give composites exceptional impact resistance for long, trouble-free life.
