Johnson Yachts is proud to introduce the Johnson 70, a new model that will help welcome new owners to the excitement of custom construction and built-to-order design. Discerning yacht buyers know that Johnson Yachts has had more than 30 years of success by building yachts that provide better interior volume, a concept the rest of the boat building world is only beginning to understand. The new Johnson 70 is no exception, and her builder capitalizes on her 18-foot 3-inch beam to offer a choice of three or four staterooms.
The Johnson 70 features an exterior design by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design to provide much of the superyacht experience in a manageable LOA, and indeed the design shows advances in styling and space usage that will set the yacht apart from the available production boats. Should yachtsmen request a skylounge, the layout precludes the need for a lower helm, and the result is truly a single-level blank canvas on which yacht owners can work with Johnson to create the shared spaces they’ve always wanted. A fishing cockpit can increase the yacht’s flexibility as each build in the series is expected to be set apart from those before.
Interiors for Hull No. 1 will showcase a concept created by Design Unlimited, and provide a mix of textures in fabrics and materials that provide a stylish and comfortable environment that encourages relaxation in shared areas and accommodation spaces.
“With the design and engineering of the Johnson 70 – together with Design Unlimited and Bill Dixon – we have a yacht designed to be versatile,” said Peter Chang, general manager of Johnson Yachts. “We want to create a new line of yachts that sets the trend rather than follows it.”
Stay tuned for additional news from Johnson Yachts as the build of the first Johnson 70 progresses and new models are developed.
