Everyone in this business is saying much the same thing right now: God bless America. Not because, secretly (or even not so secretly), there’s a big Trump constituency in superyachting, but because US buyers are very, very active right now. The headlines may be dominated by big-name NFL team owners and their huge new yachts, but across the spectrum we’re seeing good activity, from 24 metres upwards. I think I speak for us all when I say let’s not rock this boat (Donald...). One shipyard benefiting from these good times is Westport, which, without fuss or fanfare, gets on with the job of building superyachts that its mainly US clientele loves. I think it’s up to hull No 61 on the Westport 112 now. Incredible. But it’s hull No 3 of the Westport 125 that’s the focus of our feature in this issue. If you thought you knew what the interiors of a Westport looked like, think again... Meanwhile, it’s hard to ignore the glorious slash of silver on the cover this month. I love Pershings, always have. When I discovered way back a 140 was on the way, I got very excited. So a toast to Italy this month as well.
