5 reasons to charter a Westport motoryacht
The team from Luxury Charter Group has personally inspected hundreds of luxury charter yachts in their careers and experienced their many diverse virtues as guests onboard. Among all the marques from all quarters of the globe, there’s something about Westport yachts that makes them stand out as all-round performers when it comes to fulfilling guests’ charter desires.
Manufactured in the US since 1964, Westport yachts are remarkable for their onboard liveability: spacious cabins, wide beam, massive storage space to accommodate plenty of watertoys and auxiliary craft such as tenders and fishing craft, vast deck areas for relaxing and entertaining, not to mention their ocean-going capacity and sturdy construction.
Inside, each Westport yacht is custom-designed to the highest specification, taking into account the needs and tastes of the sophisticated charter guest. Many have his 'n hers bathrooms in the Master suite and most of them boast stabilizers for complete comfort at sea and at anchor.
Westport yachts are exclusively made using composite construction, making them faster and more fuel-efficient than their steel or aluminium counterparts. A composite structure isolates and absorbs sound, reducing hull and mechanical noise levels for quiet operation, as well as superior thermal insulation properties for more enjoyable cruising, whatever the season.
There are around 20 Westport vessels in charter in various destinations worldwide, including the Caribbean, Bahamas, US, the Greek Islands and Croatia. Westport yachts range in size from 111 to 164-feet, so there's bound to be one to fit your idea of the perfect charter vacation.
