It’s no secret that we of the Pacific Northwest like our businesses, and veggies, local. The homegrown ethos extends to our superyachts with many locally built examples to boast of. One of our major builders constantly turning heads is Westport Shipyard, known worldwide as a top-tier commercial vessel and large yacht builder, that proudly operates three shipyards in Washington (Westport, Port Angeles, and Hoquiam).
Of course, they also have a sales office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to serve as an umbilical cord to East Coast clientele. In general, Westports are no-expenses-spared, over 100-foot length overall, go-anywhere luxury superyachts that are the envy of the international elite.
A 112-foot (34.1-meter) Westport Ascente is currently for sale locally. Designed by naval architect Gregory C. Marshall, Ascente was launched in 1994 and underwent a complete interior and exterior refit in 2017.
With accommodations for 10 guests in five cabins—including four double VIP suites with en suite heads and a full-beam master suite—and an addition two cabins for four crew, Ascente is a proper Westport in every sense. With wrap-around windows in the salon, which includes a full wet bar, card table, huge screen television, and large custom dining table forward, owners are set up for memorable times aboard with those who matter the most. Ascente is powered by twin Volvo TAMD 550-horsepower diesel engines. Reportedly this arrangement allows for a 10-knot cruising speed and a maximum speed of around 14 knots.
