164 Westport Vango
Brokers Kevin Merrigan and Wes Sanford at Northrop and Johnson have announced a $4.5 million price drop on the 164-foot Westport Vango.
Previously listed at an asking price of $24.5 million, the yacht is now being offered at $19.95 million.
Vango, delivered in 2006, was Hull No. 1 of the Westport 164 model. She was built on spec and bought by the owner of a Westport 130 who wanted to move up in length overall. Donald Starkey collaborated with Westport on design, while William Garden handled naval architecture.
Six staterooms accommodate 12 guests, with additional quarters for 12 crew. Features include an elevator, helicopter capability, a sundeck hot tub and what Northrop and Johnson calls “high cruise speeds.” (The standard 164 spec gives a top speed of 24 knots, a cruising speed of 20 knots and transoceanic range with twin MTU 16V4000 diesel engines.)
Vango is ABS-classed and MCA-compliant, should a new owner wish to put her onto the charter market. Currently only two 164 Westports, Aquavita and Harmony, are available for charter worldwide.
