Currently under construction at the American shipyard Westport Yachts, the latest Westport 112 superyacht has been sold just a few months before scheduled completion.
Speaking to SYT at the latest edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Westport’s Ron Nugent explains the development of the hugely successful 112 model: “We have always been incorporating owner’s requests into our 112 models, and when a new addition works, it becomes standard on that platform. Over time we have received requests asking for an updated style and so, again, with the help of an experienced owner we put together a new look for this size. It is the same hull as before and you can see that it has remained very much according to our house style. The predictability of the boat has remained unchanged.”
The new Westport 112 was sold with Bob Cury and Dan Corcoran at RJC Yacht Sales & Charter introducing the buyer in the deal. She is scheduled for delivery in November this year.
