Say hello to the Johnson 70. As discerning yacht buyers know, Johnson Yachts has had success for 30 years by building yachts that are an interior-volume upgrade from most of the market.

The result is an interior that factors the space needs of family and guests into the design, while also maintaining a high standard of engineering for the yacht. The combination results in comfort for all aboard in terms of space and also with the peace of mind in knowing the yacht is built as she should be.

The Johnson 70 is designed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design to provide much of the superyacht experience in a manageable LOA. With an available skylounge or an open flying bridge, the Johnson 70 shows the same level of customization as the rest of the Johnson line, encouraging owner input on the design of the accomodations, as well as the helm area, the saloon, dining area, and galley.

Three- and four-stateroom layouts are available on the lower deck of this sleek yacht, capitalizing on the wide beam. Yachtsmen can request a skylounge to preclude the need for a lower helm, and the result is truly a blank canvas on which they can work with Johnson to create the shared spaces of their dreams. A fishing cocpit can increase the yacht's flexibility as each build in the series is expected to be set apart from those before.

"We want to create a new line of yacht that sets the trend rather than follows it," said Peter Chang, general manager of Johnson Yachts. "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!"
