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). But while it has a line of pre-engineered models, this family-owned shipyard is more than willing to build to order. Among the boats under construction when we visited was a 78-foot luxury sportfisher being built for an American client. Equipped with two large Gyro stabilizers for truly comfortable fishing, the yacht features four spacious staterooms and a cabin for two crew as well as high-quality marble, attractive burl veneer and an outstanding mosaic in the fully equipped open galley.
