Johnson 112 Flagship Yacht Launched

Johnson Yachts has launched its largest model to date, the 34.14 metre Johnson 112 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The raised pilothouse yacht will now undergo sea trials ahead of a planned January delivery.

Built from a GRP hull and superstructure and sold back in May to an American client, the Johnson 112 features in-house naval architecture and exterior lines from Dixon Yacht Design.

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in six staterooms, including a main deck master suite, a VIP, double cabin and two twin rooms. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for four crew members split across two cabins.

External relaxation spaces include a large superyacht sundeck shaded by a hardtop Bimini with tender storage space back aft, complete with a davit crane. The sheltered aft deck allows for al fresco meals, while the foredeck sunpads are situated above the master suite and accessed by a small ladder. The Johnson 112 has great sportfishing potential with an enclosed cockpit just forward of the bathing platform.

Power comes from a pair of 1,925 HP Caterpillar diesel engines for a top speed of 23 knots and zero-speed ABT stabilisers will ensure a comfortable night at anchor. Vital statistics include a 7.2 metre beam and a maximum draught of just 1.86 metres, which is ideal for exploring shallow cruising grounds.

Johnson has plans to build even bigger, with a tri-deck Johnson 115 design currently on the drawing board. Other projects under development at the yard include the recently revealed Johnson 70 skylounge yacht.
