Johnson Yachts reveals new details on “entry level superyacht”

Taiwanese yard Johnson Yachts has revealed its “entry level superyacht” at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Designed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design, the 21.3 metre customisable yacht is available with a skylounge or open fly bridge.

The yard will work with the owner to sculpt the helm area, accommodation and communal living areas around their tastes. A fishing cockpit is also available. The yard described the yacht as “truly a blank canvas”.

Accommodation is for a total of eight guests in four double ensuite cabins. The yacht has a 5.6 metre beam and is equipped with a pair of CAT C18 1015HP engines for a max speed of 25 knots.

Johnson Yachts general manager Peter Chang said, “We want to create a new line of yacht that sets the trend rather than follows it. With the design and engineering of the Johnson 70, we have a yacht designed to be versatile and yet will still fit the description of an entry level superyacht.”

It came as the yard revealed new details and renderings of its new flagship, the Johnson 115. The yard’s first tri-deck yacht has also been designed by Bill Dixon and will accommodate either 10 or 12 guests across five or six staterooms.
