New 36m Westport 117 yacht approaches delivery

1 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Westport Yachts' 35.8-metre raised pilothouse model, the W117, has reached a milestone in its construction process with the joining of the hull and superstructure.

Construction began on the GRP yacht in 2022, following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions. The concept was developed with "three-dimension modelling and structural software", as used in the aviation industry.

Her exterior will have a "Snow White" finish with black metallic superstructure features

Accommodation is for 10 guests across five ensuite cabins and five crew, including the captain. The master cabin will be positioned on the main deck, benefitting from a his-and-hers bathroom and backlit Majelite headboard. 

Interior renderings reveal a colour palette of whites and greys with leather and vinyl accents, creating "a neutral backdrop for an owner to incorporate a desired look". Premium woods will also be used, such as mahogany, pomelle sapele with beech hardwoods in the crew’s quarters. 

Painted and wrapped surfaces are used in public areas and guest accommodations

With a 7.7-metre beam, the main deck saloon has been described as "dramatically open and spacious" by the yard. The interior dining table can also be positioned aft for semi-al fresco dining. While full details are yet to be disclosed, other highlights include a beach club bar and a flybridge fitted with a centreline hot tub, settees, barbecue and bar.

Power will come from a pair of Caterpillar C32 engines, for a top speed of 24 knots and cruising speed of 20 knots. A draft of 1.9 metres will also allow the W117 to navigate shallow bays and anchorages as seen in the Bahamas and Caribbean.

The Westport 117 will be on display at the 2024 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
