Taiwan’s Johnson Yachts is growing its lineup, above the 100-foot (30.5-meter) mark. Meet the Johnson 115, its largest megayacht, as well as its first trideck.
Johnson Yachts teased the new flagship over the summer. At the time, Andy Huang, the shipyard president, explained that several inquiries arose about bigger boats. Not only did customers and potential customers want more length, but also they wanted more height, featuring a third usable deck.
Therefore, the Johnson 115 is the solution. She takes the top spot from the yard’s current title holder, a 93-footer (28.3-meter). Dixon Yacht Design, which also created the 93, believed the new project should have her own hull design. The naval-architecture studio also created an opening transom, revealing a beach club, as well as a dedicated tender garage. The garage holds an 18-footer (5.5-meter), aft of the beach club. If buyers want more toys, the hydraulic swim platform can come into play. It’s capable of holding a 16-footer (5-meter).
Previously, Johnson Yachts disclosed that the Johnson 115 bears Design Unlimited’s signature inside. However, it did not reveal imagery. These therefore are the first looks at the possibilities. Customers can choose from accommodations for either 10 or 12 people amid a 25’5″ (7.75-meter) beam. Since the megayacht is semi-custom, naturally customers can also request room arrangements to suit their way of living. Most clients will likely keep the saloon and formal dining areas open to one another on the main deck, as shown above.
Design Unlimited also suggests a convivial feel for the skylounge. Here, the Johnson 115 can include a stone-topped bar, a games area, as well as a lounging/conversation area. A door to the wheelhouse protects privacy, as well as the captain’s night vision should the owners and guests be enjoying themselves at a late hour.
Hull number one is under construction, for completion next year.
