Since the founding of the Westport Shipyard in 1964, Westport has built and launched a wide variety of vessels, from commercial fishing boats and fast passenger ferries to luxurious motor yachts. Westport was a pioneer in the use of composite materials in yacht and commercial construction, and to date has completed a total of more than 120 yachts and many commercial vessels.
Its original focus on ocean-going craft for the North Pacific commercial fishing fleet has become a cornerstone of its dedication to quality design and construction, and is reflected in the steadfast seaworthiness of each motor yacht Westport has built.
Today, Westport builds composite motor yachts, each one an eloquent statement of elegant style, stellar performance and unsurpassed comfort... and each one efficiently crafted.
Westport's status as the largest yacht builder in North America, and among the largest in the world, yields a number of advantages, not only in terms of the quality of our products, but in the level of service we can offer our clients. Among them:
* 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 – Donald Starkey and William Garden. The result is known, consistently superior performance, structural integrity, contemporary style and efficient interior arrangement.
* Process Engineering: 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.
* Specialised facilities: Westport yachts are built at four separate yards, where teams concentrate on a limited number of configurations to meet the highest standards of quality. Additionally, Westport's specialised cabinet and carpentry shop serves yard operations with exquisite joinery, worthy of the most lavish custom build.
* 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.
As a result of this considerable commitment, and with the financial strength of a world leader, Westport has earned the confidence of the most discriminating owners, based on an enviable record of delivering the finished product on time and on budget. Moreover, Westport composite-built yachts perform to a known standard, delivering exceptional speed, range and handling characteristics exactly as promised.
