US builder Westport has celebrated the launch of the 55th hull in its Westport 112 series.

With the 55th hull due to be delivered, the popularity of this 34.1 metre yacht is undeniable. The new yacht has gone to a repeat Westport 112 client, which isn’t unusual for the production builder.

“We are very proud to be delivering this, the 55th 112 on time, and on budget once again to another repeat client,” said Alex Rogers, Westport's Director of Sales. “The client worked closely with our engineering and interior design staff, incorporating numerous custom features to enhance his yachting lifestyle. The interior boasts a contemporary walnut finish.”

As can be seen in the photo above, the new Westport 112 yacht has been loaded into a ship in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada and is currently en route to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

With a minimal draught of 1.71 metres, the Westport 112 is ideal for cruising in the shallow waters of Florida, The Bahamas and the Caribbean.

The Westport 112 is a raised pilothouse, semi-displacement motor yacht that’s designed with a priority on performance with naval architecture from Jack Sarin. Built in GRP, the two-deck yacht accommodates eight guests in four staterooms with a master, two doubles and one twin cabin, stretching over a roomy beam of 7.28 metres.

Westport's range includes the Westport 112, 125, 130 and 164, all built at three shipyards in Washington state in the US. A Westport 112 is currently for sale, set to launch in 2016.
