The Johnson 115 construction is getting under way on superyacht flagship

by Johnson Yachts 14 Jun 11:28 UTC

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.

"We 're very excited to build our new flagship in this 115-footer," said Andy Huang, President of Johnson Yachts. "We'd like to create a yacht with the flexibility to accommodate owners' needs, and help their dream become reality." The Johnson 115 is the latest platform to help the builder's clients achieve their yachting goals.

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.

"There are many design features on this yacht to make owning and living aboard very special," says Bill Dixon. "Externally, there are multiple deck spaces, from the 'Beach Club' at the transom to the flybridge. With the walk-around upper deck, being a go-to area for owner and guests, with large leisure space forward and aft of the 'Sky lounge.'"

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.

"We set about to define a new 'House Style' that Johnson Yachts could present to future customers, which would be timeless and adaptable for the future," says Mark Tucker of Design Unlimited. "Timbers can be adjusted to suit the taste of each individual clients and then harmonized with a selection of fine finishes and materials sourced from around the world. All this can now be done with us working with the individual client and doing designs to suit their needs and visualizing their developed designs for them. Design Unlimited have taken great care in selecting only the highest quality materials and ensuring every last detail has been carefully considered."

Johnson Yachts has vast experience managing the engineering and mechanical aspects of the yacht so prospective owners merely have to concern themselves with choosing the look and feel of the spaces where they will enjoy their time aboard. "With the design and engineering of the Johnson 115, we offer several different design choices for the client," says Peter Chang, General Manager of Johnson Yachts. "Whether they wish to have a flybridge, a skylounge, or a beach club, we can built the yacht they want."

Johnson Yachts will offer updates about the construction and details as this magnificent new superyacht flagship continues to develop.
