On July 13th, 2010 Palmer Johnson launched the first of three PJ170’s, the largest Sportyacht builds. “This significant launch certainly cements Palmer Johnson’s Sportyacht concept by passing the 50 metre benchmark and further confirms the appeal of the Sportyacht genre,” said company President Mike Kelsey of the PJ 170 #1 earlier this year, this PJ 170 #2 continues the trend. The company is also building two 210’ Sportyachts for delivery next year along with a 135’ and the 82M PJ World.
The PJ 170 #2 is a 52.2m (170ft) motor yacht currently under construction at Palmer Johnson to a design by Nuvolari Lenard.
Being built in aluminium to Lloyds class and MCA compliant, this superyacht offers expansive accommodation for up to 12 guests in five staterooms plus nine crew in five cabins.
Features include a foredeck swimming pool and gyro stabilisers for hull efficiency, while twin 2565hp MTU engines will give her a cruising range of over 2,500 miles at 12 knots.
PJ 170 #2 is scheduled for June 2011, allowing her new owners a full summer of cruising.
Asking $38 million.
