Blending the allure of the classic lines of a 'downeast' style cruiser with advanced engineering and unique technology, the Newport 460 was created to stir the senses and the soul.

Conceived for a discerning owner in collaboration with a seasoned team of designers and boat builders, the Newport 460 will have broad appeal for its inventory of features and capacity for customisation.

Hallmarks of this new brand, which builds on the heritage and craftmanship of the iconic Island Gypsy marque, include generous social spaces, full walk-around decks for ease of access and safety, helm side entry door, open plan living, smooth ride, fuel efficiency, low maintenance.

With its proven planing hull, narrow entry easing into a soft chine, the hull of the Newport 460 will deliver comfort and stability in all sea states.

Entertaining is a breeze with the huge wrap-around cockpit with table, ample seating and alfresco dining area flowing seamlessly into the well-equipped galley and lounge as a single level social setting.

The 1.2m swim platform ensures safe boarding, launching the tender, or catching your seafood lunch. The galley was left to the experts to design, a fully-female team of experienced boat owners, and boasts everything that opens and shuts, including sensational storage, dual refrigeration, ice maker, dual stainless-steel sinks, long Corian or stone bench tops and convection microwave oven and electric cooktop.

At the helm, dual leather chairs and helm station equipped with the latest in Raymarine navigation equipment, while the lounge and dining section cleverly converts to a double bed.

Below decks, the Newport 460 offers owners either a one-cabin or two-cabin layout. The single cabin format comprises a huge Queen-sized Island bed, separate WC and shower, as well as full-height robes and impeccable cabinetry.

Design and décor may be the first breathtaking impressions of the Newport 460, but what's within the hull that will elevate this newcomer above her peers.

The Newport 460 "silent drive" will turn the industry on its head!

The first models come with 480hp Cummins diesel engines and Onan generators, coupled to a ZF 2:1 gearbox and running through our new technology "Python" drive system which has been especially designed for this range of boats.

This system equates to minimal maintenance and sensational performance of up to 20 knots, along with class-leading fuel economy.

Newport 460 owners can expect nearly unlimited scope to overlay their own style and requirements. The Newport Motor Yachts team of Allan and Neil Francis, are committed to working closely with new owners, visiting the factory at key times during the build and being intimately involved throughout the building process.

Priced at $899,000 and including $50,000 options, the first Newport 460 will be unveiled at the 2019 Sanctuary Cove international Boat Show, 23 to 26 May on Queensland's Gold Coast, represented by Queensland distributor Swan Super Lines.
