Johnson Yachts is announcing it is about to begin construction on the Johnson 115, the builder’s new flagship, on speculation.
The Johnson 115 will be a world-class superyacht, with a refined aesthetic in a completely new hull design. The new yacht will continue the Taiwan builder’s leadership in large-volume yachts, a trend they helped to launch from the very first models, showing foresight and industry leadership. The Johnson 115 advances the idea even further, with available layouts of five or six staterooms and high levels of customization available, Johnson Yacht’s flagship will draw the eye of superyacht connoisseurs in harbors around the world.
The Johnson 115 will have exterior lines designed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design, and she will have a striking plumb bow that carries her volume far forward, maximizing her space for her length overall. She has a tri-deck profile that has large windows, protected by bulwarks with inlaid glazing to allow improved lines of sight from the main deck. The sky lounge utilizes the wraparound vertical window design that has become a hallmark of Johnson Yachts.
The sky lounge will offer the indoor-outdoor feel, opening wide to an open-air aft deck that will also shade the main deck aft. The foredeck will be a gathering area for friends and family, with a seating area that rivals those of much larger yachts.
The interior of the Johnson 115 will have five or six staterooms to welcome a full complement of guests aboard, with the private heads and berth arrangements at the discretion of the owner.
With an interior design created by Design Unlimited, the Johnson 115 will have social a comfortable saloon to welcome guests and family, where they can gather to enjoy the fresh air of the aft deck through wide-opening aft bulkhead doors, then dine together in the formal dining area forward. As with all Johnson Yachts, the finishes and furnishings are up to the owners’ discretion and specification, and the builder pays close attention to material choices and furnishings that offer a level of sophistication worthy of a superyacht.
