Since their beginnings almost 100 years ago, Palmer-Johnson has been at the forefront of yachting performance and innovation. From award winning championship racing yachts to their new and revolutionary SuperSport series, the quality is unimpeachable as every one of the more than 200 yachts made by them is still afloat.

Revealed to the world in the shipping lanes of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, the golden 48M SuperSport ($Inquire), with its futuristic design, appears more like a floating spaceship. At 160 feet (49 m) long with a beam of 36 feet (11 m) the MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines can easily push her to 32 knots. Using a carbon composite for both hull and superstructure she is only 490 gross tons, about one third the weight of a conventional hull. She can accommodate twelve guests and uses a crew of nine.

The super yacht houses three decks and a 23 foot (7m) tender housed inboard. With this golden beauty being the first of her kind, expect this glow of quality from Palmer-Johnson to continue.
