Westport 130 JW
The Westport 130 may be the most ubiquitous motoryacht in the worldwide charter fleet. Amarula Sun, Amitié, Arioso, Endless Summer, Miss Michelle, My Colors, Redemption, Serengeti, Triasara — these are just some of the names of Westport 130s taking advantage of the model’s popularity with charter clients.
Given how well these boats do for charter, it can be hard to find a Westport 130 that has always been kept private, but JW is that yacht. She’s a one-owner, 2008 launch that just had a price reduction and is now listed at $9,999,000 with Worth Avenue Yachts.
That’s not to say JW lacks the features that make the 130s such a people-pleaser. She has a mahogany décor, a Kaleidescape entertainment system with Crestron controls and a sundeck hard top to make the space usable in most weather. Other upgrades include bow and stern thrusters, Naiad stabilizers, a hydraulic passarelle and an Alfa Laval fuel-treatment system.
Her twin 2,735-horsepower MTU 12V4000s each have about 2,145 hours on them, and they provide a cruising speed of 20 knots as well as a top speed of 20 knots.
Brokers Michael Mahan and Mark Oseterhaven have the central listing and can be reached at www.worthavenueyachts.com.
