Johnson Yachts announces a new unit of Johnson 80 now under construction


The Johnson 80 is an entry-level superyacht that offers the level of interior customisation that has helped Johnson Yachts to make its name over the last 30 years. With 8 units delivered so far between US and Europe – the Taiwan yard has always focused on building yachts with superior levels of interior volume compared to the other yachts available, and the latest Johnson 80 is no exception. Johnson Yachts is proud to share details on the latest build, featuring a distinctive interior design by Karen Lynn Interior Design.

Because the Johnson 80 has a 20-foot, 8-inch (6.30-meter) beam that carries well forward, the interior volume can meet the needs of owners who wish to entertain aboard or enjoy extended cruising. Since Johnson Yachts pays close attention to performance and handling, the desired customisation of the interior layout leaves the critical engineering spaces intact.

As with all Johnson Yachts, the owner in each build in the series is expected, and even encouraged, to depart from the designs of those before. The Johnson 80 benefits from the exterior lines of Bill Dixon at Dixon Yacht Design, who has made use of a bank of vertical windows on the front of the superstructure that create panoramic views from the main-deck interior, while giving the yacht a consistency of profile with other builds from Johnson Yachts.

We’re very excited to share the details of the newest addition to the Johnson Yachts fleet,” said Andy Huang, president of Johnson Yachts. “With the proven engineering of the Johnson 80 in place, we can work with the owners to create a yacht with the flexibility to accommodate their needs, whether they wish to entertain friends on board one day or depart for a month-long cruise the next.
