New Johnson 93 yacht for sale

ADVERTISEMENT

Taiwanese yacht builder Johnson Yachts recently presented its latest version of the Johnson 93, a wide-beam, 93-foot (28.36m), four-stateroom yacht featuring dual-level vertical windows. The lower bank of nine curved panes of black glass lend their light to a main-deck master, offering views in a 270-degree arc encompassing the bow area.

Behind the upper-level bank of vertical windows is the raised pilothouse, where the five center panes are clear tempered glass for better sight lines in low-light conditions, and provide 270-degree views to assist safe navigation.

The pilothouse is three steps up from the passageway at the forward end of the salon. A fly bridge features an alfresco galley and has access from the pilothouse, as well as from stairs leading from the aft deck. A teak swim platform features a hydraulic aft section for tender launching and stowage.

“One thing to look at on the Johnson 93 are her really nice walkaround side decks,” said Jeff Stanley, a broker at Gilman Yachts in Fort Lauderdale who is the U.S. East Coast dealer for this Johnson 93. “Her saloon is the same width as the 90-foot boats from other builders with no walkarounds. It’s indicative of the volume and of this build — she’s just a bigger yacht.”

With a pair of 1,925-horsepower Caterpillar C32s, the Johnson 93 will cruise at 21 knots and top out at 24 knots, according to the builder. The price is $4.3 million, imported to the U.S. with duty paid.
