Westport is the king of very attractive, production trideck yachts in the US, offering innovative, FRP composite construction in a 130’ (39m) and a 164’ (50m) trideck motor yacht model. Their philosophy parallels that of the aviation industry, whereby a thoroughly detailed development process for new designs engineered to perform a specific, known standard. Moreover, they are all built in series, simply because no custom builder could support the cost of that process. Similarly, series production of tri deck yachts enables the builder to distribute developmental costs among several units and therefore to justify a sizeable in investment in naval architecture, styling and interior design, and to acquire the ideal infrastructure molds and equipment. Another advantage is that proven designs such as a production model actually become better boats with each launching as “bugs” are worked out and new innovations are tested. Westport offers a semi-custom approach to interior décor and optional equipment, thus allowing owners to have a unique yacht to any other Westport hull.
