West Bay's Back

Despite rumors to the contrary when the yard emerged from bankruptcy protection last July, West Bay SonShip is still in business.

Last August, for example, the British Columbia yard opened a division for refit and repair work. Called West Bay Marine Services, it includes a 4,500-square-foot covered floating service bay and 250-ton marine ways, all for boats 40 to 100 feet. And in new-construction news, West Bay is beginning work on a 54-foot raised-pilothouse motoryacht with twin 715-hp Volvo Pentas and two staterooms; completion is expected this summer. West Bay also has a five-stateroom 110 cockpit motoryacht under construction, for completion next year. Both yachts are for sale; further details are available on West Bay's Web site.
