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.
