That same investment in design, tooling, infrastructure and process engineering pays enormous dividends, enabling us to eliminate non-productive hours for a faster build and on-time delivery while adhering to the strictest quality standards.
The contracted price is the price you pay, with no surprises, no delays and no surcharges. And that price is for a fully-equipped yacht, complete with electronics, tender, dock lines, linens, dinnerware ... even a full load of fuel.
As important as what a yacht costs, is what it's worth. That's why Westport has enlisted the talent of leading naval architects and designers - William Garden, Donald Starkey, Greg Marshall - working in concert with Taylor Olson and the rest of the Westport design and engineering team to develop beautiful, seaworthy, comfortable yachts.
Engine installation, for example, takes place much later in the Westport build than conventional sequences would allow, and ensures the owner a fresh, new propulsion system that hasn't sat in a hull for months or years, tying up capital while becoming dated ... and often serving as a very expensive set of workbenches.
As series-built vessels, Westport yachts are designed for broad, enduring appeal, so the same attributes that have made Westport Yachts so popular among new-boat owners also attract buyers in the brokerage market.
Compared to industry averages, Westport Yachts retain a remarkably high resale value. Better yet, they sell quickly, typically within three to six months of listing, a big reason why so many current Westport owners also are repeat customers.
