Overview

Price Reduced, Offers Encouraged!!

WESTERN WAY is a Newporter 40 Ketch, designed by Clarence E. Akerman and built at Dorchester Shipyard.  This was a very successful design with over 125 built, and were popular on both the East and West Coasts.  Known for their comfortable and spacious accommodations and good sailing and handling, the Newporter 40s have cruised extensively.

WESTERN WAY was a familiar sight in the 1960's around Mount Desert Island, Maine, where she was owned for many years by the TV host and personality, Gary Moore.  She has been extensively reworked and upgraded by her long-time current owner and has enjoyed exceptional care.  We feel she can be highly recommended, and will be pleased to arrange showings.
