EVERETT, Wash. – Westport Shipyard is on pace for a record year, with six deliveries completed to date and four more scheduled by year’s end, the company reported in a recent release.
The company recently launched and delivered the 12th of its William Garden-designed 130’ tri-deck motoryacht series. To commemorate the vessel’s completion, its American owner, a repeat Westport customer, hosted a catered launch party for employees at the builder’s Westport, Wash., yard.
A lifelong boating enthusiast, the owner of the newest 130 has owned a succession of yachts, including a Westport 112’ raised pilothouse, according to Westport president Daryl Wakefield. “We are pleased that his experience with the 112 was a major factor in his decision to select Westport as the builder of his new yacht,” Wakefield said. He added that Westport’s design philosophy, performance and build quality have made Westport yachts equally popular on the brokerage market, noting that the 112 sold within two weeks of becoming available.
