Description: Westport Motor Yacht Yachtfisher Cockpit
The first owner purchased an 85' Westport which was taken to LeClercq Marine in Seattle, where it was stripped down to a mere hull. In a total reconstruction, the hull was lengthened to 101' with an all new superstructure, interior layout, engine room, new main engines, generators and running gear (all moved aft) and complete new electrical and plumbing systems. The interior was completed to the highest level and Hope was launched as "Lady Diane" in 1996 to full super yacht standards. Her owner at the time used her extensively in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Tahiti and the Pacific Northwest in the US.
After being sold to her second owner in 2007 with a name change to "Hope" she cruised extensively from Seattle to Mexico, Costa Rica, through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean, Bahamas and East Coast of the US from Florida to Maine.
The current owner purchased her in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2010 and with extended cruising range and autonomy in mind, added extra diesel storage and improved refrigeration. She then spent almost 5 years cruising the entire East Coast of the US, Bahamas, Virgin Islands and Cuba. In 2015 she again transited the Panama Canal and crossed the Pacific on her own bottom via the Galapagos Islands, Marquesas, Tuamotus, Tahiti and Cook Islands to Fiji. She has since cruised the East coast of Australia from Sydney to Lizard Island north of Cairns, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and a number of seasons in Fiji.
Her innovative layout over 4 levels is ideal for family living and both formal and informal entertaining, while the exceptional aft cockpit area makes an ideal platform for enjoying all water-based activities, especially scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing. She has always been maintained to a very high standard and has confirmed time and again her reliability for long range and remote area cruising.
Hope is equally at home entertaining on Sydney Harbor or lying at anchor amongst the islands of the South Pacific.
There are few, if any, 100' / 30M motor yachts with comparable class, economy and proven passage-making capability available today in this price range, in the South West Pacific.
