Westport debuts two new yachts at Fort Lauderdale boat show

Westport debuts two new yachts at Fort Lauderdale boat show

Westport Yachts debuted two new yachts at the Fort Lauderdale boat show, including an updated version of its 40m and a new 34m motor yacht.

The 34m Westport 112 features an on-deck master layout, part of a fairly recent update to this very popular series from Westport – the yard has built more than 50 of them.

Meanwhile, the latest 40m Westport 130 yacht on display in Fort Lauderdale showed off a new contemporary interior design. 'The 40m has a new-style interior for us,' says Mark Masciarotte, Westport's director of sales. 'It's more contemporary, much more modern with cleaner details and more simple than you're used to seeing in traditional Westport models. We wanted to broaden our appeal to younger owners or those with more contemporary tastes.'

Westport reports that the new style, designed in-house, has proven quite popular at the Fort Lauderdale boat show. The venerable series superyacht builder also notes quite a bit of interest in its 50m at the Fort Lauderdale boat show. 'The 50m continues to be attractive to clients who are moving up in size either through Westport or from outside the brand,' Masciarotte says.

'And we have a had a lot of interest in the last few days in a larger boat from a lot of people who would want to see something bigger from Westport, whether we go that way or not ... requests have has been anywhere from adding a simple 3m to as much as 10m,' Masciarotte continues. 'It will be an interesting exercise, because we don't do one-offs; once we make a decision, it has to stay for a while. It also would bring us into new tonnage class. Tonnage is key to our program, all of our yachts are under 500GT. If we add 10m, that is a big is key to that impact .'

Stay tuned to see if Westport takes the leap to building a new larger flagship yacht and for Westport Yachts sales news.
