Westport superyacht Book-Ends sold
by Malcolm MacLean
With naval architecture by William Garden, she was built in GRP by US yard Westport to a design by Donald Starkey and, MCA compliant, she was delivered in 2012 as one of the yard’s Westport 130′ series. She continues in the 130′ tradition with exceptional luxury, convenience, reliability and performance. Book-Ends was built with ‘Quiet acoustics’ technology, reducing sound levels to that of a luxury car to ensure the comfort of guests and owners.
Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a main deck master suite with a king sized bed, two VIP suites below with king sized beds and two twins. All cabins are elegantly decorated and have en suite bathrooms plus access to the yacht’s on-demand Kaleidescape audio/video server.
The main saloon has an L-shaped settee, three comfortable swivel chairs and a coffee table plus a full entertainment centre while forward is a dining area and, interestingly, a kosher galley. The sun deck features a large wet bar with bar stools and is covered by a custom hardtop. Outdoor entertaining and dining are facilitated by two built-in seating areas forward with two tables, an ice maker, large barbecue and a pleasant sunning area with adjustable chaise lounges. Twin 2,735hp MTU engines with low hours give her a cruising speed of 20 knots.
Located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Book-Ends was asking $17.9 million.
