Superyacht Johnson 80: the size doesn’t matter
The Johnson 80 has just launched and it is making quite a splash in Taiwan. Johnson Yachts describes the new 24-meter hull as an entry-level superyacht, mainly because the Taiwan yard offers this model with the same high level of interior customization that has helped make the Johnson Yachts name over the last 30 years.
Bill Dixon at Dixon Yacht Design designed her exterior, keeping her lines consistent with other Johnson builds. The 180-degree vertical windows on the front of the superstructure offer a panoramic view from the main-deck interior. With the usual Johnson extra living and storage space, she provides everything that is necessary for comfortable cruising on different ways such a weekend or long-distance trip.
The Johnson 80 has a 6.30-meter beam that carries well forward, helping to create the interior volume. While Johnson Yachts has designs in place for multiple layouts, the owner of each hull is encouraged, to create their own one-of-a-kind yacht.
Comfortable interior spaces created by Karen Lynn Interior Design let the owner welcome family and friends relax in large groups or more private parties. The Johnson 80 has a space in the main-deck saloon, a living area located aft with a roomy L-shaped sofa and a pair of armchairs. The aft opens wide with a sliding door, combine interior and aft deck spaces.
The main deck is also a kitchen, where an open galley is set off with marble countertops with an island and breakfast bar. A table made from marble is surrounded by an expansive L-shaped dinette to take of the 180-degree views through the forward windows.
