This all-American superyacht took just three months to sell despite being more than 15 years old. There are several reasons why it's considered a catch, the first one being that it was built by the prestigious Westport Yachts. The other reasons have a lot to do with its former owners, who have enjoyed it as a perfect vacation home on the water for almost a decade.
All Inn is a 130-foot (39.6 meters) Westport superyacht that successfully blends its heritage build with contemporary styling. A high-volume pleasure craft, it was designed to easily accommodate up to ten guests across five sumptuous staterooms, as well as a seven-person crew, including the captain. Since 2019, it has been part of the Fraser luxury charter fleet and even won Fraser's “Captain and Charter Yacht of the Year" award two years ago.

Beyond its successful charter career, All Inn served as a millionaire family's private floating home. David and Ann Sutherland were more than the typical millionaire yacht owners. As founders of the high-end Perennials and Sutherland materials and furnishings brand, they were closely connected to the world of luxury yachting. It's easy to see why they were the right folks to modernize a Westport and turn it into a money-making charter yacht.

The Dallas-based millionaires admitted that investing in a superyacht in times of recession seemed like a bold move, yet that's what initially inspired them to become yacht owners. They decided to make this step after enjoying a couple of days onboard a friend's pleasure craft and selling their vacation home. David believed that a floating vacation home for friends and family would be even better than their former vacation house, and that's what All Inn became.

According to the former owners, what initially drew them to All Inn was the solid build and high-quality equipment, which is what makes it a great vessel to this day. The interiors, on the other hand, were already outdated at the time, and that's where the couple's network of friends in the industry came in handy. The 2008 Westport designed by William Garden was thoroughly refitted in 2015 and later packed with a modern lineup of water toys.

The refit only increased All Inn's already high value, which explains its steady success in the charter industry. After almost a decade, David and Ann Sutherland decided to part with the revamped Westport. The future owner admired the American yacht at the Miami International Boat Show, and that's how a sale was made in record time (after just three months on the market) for somewhere around $11 million.

It looks like All Inn will continue its charter career under the new ownership, with weekly rates starting at $115,000.
