JOHNSON 80 ENTRY-LEVEL SUPERYACHT LAUNCHED

The Johnson 80 has just launched and it is making quite a splash in Taiwan. Johnson Yachts describes the new 80 footer as an entry-level superyacht, chiefly because the Taiwan yard offers this model with the same high level of interior customization that has helped make the Johnson Yachts name over the last 30 years. With a focus on building yachts with excellent interior volume, Johnson Yachts set apart this latest Johnson 80 with a striking interior design by Karen Lynn Interior Design.

Johnson Yachts has always paid close attention to engineering, as well as handling and cruising performance. This focus means the yachts provide excellent performance and allow customization of the interior layout while leaving key engineering spaces intact. The new Johnson 80 has completed a sea trial and the yacht had a cruising speed of 19 knots and a top speed of 27 knots, with the expected seakeeping and handling Johnson Yachts considers a hallmark of its line.

The Johnson 80 has a 20-foot, 8-inch (6.30-meter) beam that carries well forward, helping to create the interior volume that wins over owners who have seen other yachts in the market that don’t measure up.

While Johnson Yachts has designs in place for multiple layouts, the owner of each hull is encouraged, to create their own one-of-a-kind yacht. And the interior volume that allows true flexibility means the Johnson 80 competes with superyachts longer than 100 feet LOA.

Regardless of how the interior is laid out, each Johnson 80 will benefit from the exterior lines of Bill Dixon at Dixon Yacht Design. Dixon has long understand the language of exterior yacht design and he has made use of a bank of vertical windows on the front of the superstructure to give the Johnson 80 a recognizable strand of Johnson Yachts DNA in that shared profile element while also giving panoramic views from the main-deck interior.

Stay tuned for more information about the new Johnson 80, including when she may available for inspection and sea trial.

Johnson Yachts announces construction has begun on the Johnson 70

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.

JOHNSON YACHTS DELIVERS THE FIRST EVER 112 SUPERYACHT

Johnson Yachts is excited to share news of the recent launch of the Johnson 112. The latest launch has key design features that were specified by her owners to make this a truly one-of-a-kind, six-stateroom superyacht.

The Johnson 112 has a fiberglass hull and superstructure, built from a design using the yard’s in-house naval architecture and engineering. Bill Dixon at Dixon Yacht Design drew the yacht’s distinctive exterior lines, which feature the double bank of vertical windows forward that have become a company hallmark.

Accommodations on the Johnson 112 start with the main-deck master, which makes the most of the lower bank of vertical windows. These windows provide excellent views in a wide panorama encompassing the bow of the superyacht.  Below decks are five additional staterooms. Four of these staterooms feature twin berths that combine easily to form double berths. Two of the staterooms also have Pullman berths, bringing the count of the owner’s party to fourteen. Comfortable crew’s quarters accommodate six.

While the Johnson 112 is a fine example of this superyacht builder’s capabilities, it’s really just one set of ideas. Johnson Yachts offers various layouts, as well semi-custom modifications within this superyacht design, to allow owners to make the most of the hull’s volume.
