Palmer Johnson Sportyachts made some waves when they first appeared, with traditionalists predicting their unpopularity & criticizing their unusual looks. Fortunately for the company, their critics have had to eat humble pie & watch as a number of the company’s sportyachts cruise past them in the docks.
The company has just finished a new design for a repeat client – who so far remains unnamed, as does the new model which is being referred to by its hull number: PJ-501. It is the largest sportyacht model produced by the company so far, & the first to be launched from their shipyard in the UK.
At 171 feet, the yacht has quite an aggressive design with windows at the center & black-painted radar & communications-equipment. The gyro-based stabilizer system will ensure smooth sailing for those on board as they cruise between exotic locations.
The interior details are also hush-hush, but there’s a spacious sun-deck & fore-deck pool to lounge by, so the interiors are sure to be luxurious & spacious.
With this model already making a buzz in the elite circle of yacht owners, the company already has 2 orders for 210-foot yachts that are due to hit the waves in 2011, so soon the PJ-501 will be the smaller cousin to some impressive sportsyacht.
