Westport 130 is the World's Megayacht

For 18 years, the Westport 130 has been at home on all the world’s oceans.

Twin 2,600 hp MTUs give the Westport 130 a 20-knot cruise speed. She has a 2,500-nautical-mile range at 10 knots.Westport Yachts

Westport launched hull no. 1 of its 130 series in 2000 and built 28 of the original model. A newly styled hull was introduced in 2009, and since then, 14 more 130s have been delivered for private and charter use. A 15th is due later this year.

Notable features: There is an on-deck master stateroom. Mahogany gives the master a warm feeling, and equally appealing anigre is used in the guest spaces.

“You need only glance at Seaquest once underway to know that her hull form is an efficient one. … The fine lines forward mean the crew quarters are pushed aft a bit farther than normal, putting the guest accommodations near the yacht’s center of pitch.” — Yachting, October 2007

Belowdecks: Two VIPs with king berths and two guest staterooms with twin berths round out the accommodations level. All staterooms are en suite.

Availability: At press time, nine 130s were on the market ranging from $8.5 million for a 2003 model to $17.5 million for a 2014 version.
