Making Waves: Johnson Yachts' Custom Sportfisher
One of Johnson Yachts’ latest offerings is a brand-new 65 equipped with pod drives (ZF 4000), which it launched on the Australian market in its enclosed bridge version. In the United States, Johnson Yachts has been successful with its line of Bill Dixon-designed semi-custom yachts, including the 87 and flagship 105 (an appealing 125-footer has been fully engineered and is awaiting a buyer).

In a famous World War II-vintage photograph by Yousuf Karsh, Winston Churchill’s image is captured in a characteristically hulking pose, looking for all the world larger than his true height of 5’7”. By virtue of its megayacht-like posture and proportions, Johnson Yachts’ newest offering, a 103’ raised pilot house design by fellow Brit Bill Dixon, creates a comparable illusion.
