Westport Yachts has announced the sale of the ninth hull in its 38.1-metre W125 series, now "redefined" as the W135. The sale follows just days after the yacht was launched in Westport, Washington.
The W135 will now undergo final outfitting and sea trials before being delivered to her owner. The ninth hull is slightly larger than previous entries in the W125 series (hence the name change), measuring 40.99 metres.
Designed inside and out by the American shipyard, the raised pilothouse model is one of its most popular – second only to the flagship W164. Once delivered, she will join sisterships Seas the Day and Lion's Den on the water.
Accommodation is for 10 guests across a full-width master and four ensuite guest cabins. There is further space for five crew, including the captain. While full details are yet to be disclosed, the new build will mark an evolution in the series with its "enhanced" layout. The W135 has also been equipped with a "state-of-the-art" Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system in the engine room in order to minimise emissions.
Powered by twin MTU engines, she is anticipated to have a maximum speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots.
Westport Yachts also has a W117 under construction, with delivery scheduled for April 2024.Read More/Construction underway on 36m Westport 117
