It strongly depends on your playing style and goals in the game.
If you are an active trader or send large amounts of resources daily from this town - yes, it 's is worth. Also it's worth if you're going for the max score in the game.
However if you're a fighter - put a shipyard in that place. Or if you want to build ships and sell them later.
I usually have double ports in my main city and the first wine and cristal towns. The rest depend a little on my strategy. It's just worth for me, because it makes moving stuff so much faster, and I do a ton of resource relocating. Just like Draxo said, it depends on your play style. I just don't see a reason to have shipyards in every town.
I will say no, specially if your towns are spread out. The hassle of not being able to build even one single ship to free your port and instead needing to send from afar og getting someone else to do it for you. If you are worried about the loading of things, either build high trade-port or have a hermes ready.
I'll agree with Mea.
I've never been a fan of the two trading port tactic. Even when I play as a builer.
