Westport launches 164' "Legacy" The latest Westport 164-footer hit the water last month in November 2011. She is called "Legacy" and should be the ninth in the series, hull 5009. As a reminder the series runs as "Vango" (5001), "Eviva" (5002), "My Girl" (5003) "SeaQuest" (5004), "Lady Kathryn IV" (5005) "Harmony" (5006), "Boardwalk" (5007), "Wabi-Sabi" (5008). Westport's design and engineering teams have collaborated with world-renowned designer Donald Starkey and prominent naval architect William Garden to develop a refined hull form for exceptional ocean-going performance, an innovative accommodation plan which balances interior and on-deck spaces for maximum enjoyment and versatility, and a contemporary styling that ensures lasting appeal. The six-stateroom layout with on-deck full-beam master suite affords everyone a luxurious private retreat incorporating the finest fabrics, cabinetry, stone and leathers. An innovative arrangement includes a top-deck VIP suite with its own sun deck, a large formal dining room adjacent to the commercial-grade galley, and a garage aft for tenders and water toys. Designed for entertaining and relaxed socializing, the salon opens to a large covered aft deck with lounge, conversation areas and wet bar. Twin MTU 16V4000 diesels drive the Westport 164 to mid 20-knot top speeds, and throttle back to deliver transoceanic range. ABS-classed and MCA-compliant, the 164 is equally well suited for private use or charter service. Both the interior and exterior of Legacy were likely designed by Donald Starkey. The next set of 164' hulls are expected to launch in 2012. For more information: Westport Yachts 2957 State Road 84 Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33312 Westport Yachts *** Sistership "Harmony"
