Delivering its first commercial vessel in 1965, Westport Yachts has built and launched a wide variety of vessels, ranging from commercial fishing boats and fast passenger ferries to luxurious motor yachts. Westport was a pioneer in the use of composite materials in yacht and commercial construction and are renowned for pioneering series-built composite yachts for sale. All Westport yachts have been designed, engineered and crafted by hand in the US; the company’s commitment to quality design and engineering has resulted in the completion of more than 200 commercial vessels.
