Founded in 1977, brothers Rick and Randy Rust began Westport Yachts by building commercial salmon-fishing boats in the North Pacific. The changing economy however soon encouraged Westport Yachts to diverse into building luxury yachts.
Westport Yachts was one of the first companies to use labour and cost saving innovations in terms of Modular Construction. Allowing the boat to be built with fewer seams and in a quicker turnaround, it also meant that this method allowed multiple yachts to be in production at separate locations.
Westport Yachts is currently one of the largest producers of 95 to 130 foot fibreglass yachts. Having built over two hundred commercial boats, between 1984 and 1997 Westport Yachts went on to build many hulls for some of the yachting industry’s most respected yards. Their reliability in producing good quality parts and materials allowed Westport to become one of the World’s leaders amongst mega yacht brands.
