Construction begins on first Johnson 115

Construction begins on first Johnson 115

Taiwanese yard Johnson Yachts has announced that it has begun on-spec construction on the first hull of its 35 metre flagship superyacht, the Johnson 115.

First revealed at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the yacht will be the yard's first tri-deck superyacht.

Exterior design comes from boards of Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design while interior design has been handled by Design Unlimited.

The design firm previously revealed that the yacht is available in two cabin layout options accommodating either 10 or 12 guests in five or six staterooms.

Interior living spaces have been designed to be social and comfortable as well as easily accessible from the deck. The main saloon area will include a formal dining set up juxtaposing with a relaxed lounging area.

High quality materials will be present throughout in finishes and furnishings customised to the owners' tastes.

Design Unlimited founder Mark Tucker said: “The Johnson 115 benefits from our extensive experience in the design of custom superyachts, as well as our production build knowledge."

Exterior details include a plumb bow and tri-deck profile featuring large windows, all protected by bulwarks inlaid with glazing.

Meanwhile al fresco entertaining spaces will be plentiful, including a skylounge, foredeck area and wide open-air aft deck on the upper level.

A large hydraulic swim platform will sit on the aft foredeck, while a transom garage will open to reveal a beach club. The swim platform will accommodate a five metre tender. A garage located behind the beach club will also fit a 5.5 metre tender.

Bill Dixon said: "There are many design features on this yacht to make owning and living aboard very special. Externally, there are multiple deck spaces, from the beach club at the transom to the flybridge."

Johnson Yachts president Andy Huang said: "We're very excited to build our new flagship in this 115-footer. We'd like to create a yacht with the flexibility to accommodate owners' needs and help their dream become reality."
