Over the last fifty years, the Westport brand has become synonymous with quality, reliability and value. No company in America has built more yachts greater than 100 feet, and few builders worldwide can match the performance, operational flexibility and resale value performance and operational flexibility that Westport designs offer. With a foundation in the demanding commercial passenger ferry and fishing sectors of the marine industry, Westport was among the first boat builders to recognize the attributes of all-composite construction.
