Introducing the new Palmer Johnson SuperSport series. Completely re-imagined from the hull up.
Creating an entirely new design for the Palmer Johnson Super Sport series meant leaving the status quo behind. Taking bold decisions to redefine the future of yachting. The SuperSport Yacht is a fusion of extremes. A masterful and intuitive blend of design, technology and performance. Unique as a class of Superyacht.
It sounds impossible for a yacht to be faster, more efficient, more stable and more spacious without compromising performance or comfort. Never done before, until now. All in a sleek and stunning carbon fibre body designed with not a single flat surface. Designed from every angle. Everything.
A yacht that feels like it’s been designed and engineered to very high standards. Because it is.
Everything a yacht should be, expressed in a single yacht.
Inspired design that evolves the distinctive form of its predecessor.
A unique concept that begged to go deeper to create a truly great design. To expose the soul of the yacht and express it in increasing layers of enjoyment. Where looks and performance matter, as does emotional appeal.
A next generation shape achieved by relentlessly considering every detail – so that all the elements play together, including the unnoticed.
Achieving a refined unibody meant changing yacht design precepts. Every surface sculpted and finely shaped. Sculpted waistline and aggressive flair in the fore section. Muscular haunches. Predatory stance. Incredibly crisp and sleek profile lines. Stunning metallic finish.
Palmer Johnson unibody design
To achieve a refined unibody meant starting with a solid block and carving out shapes to get more continuous surfaces and lines. We did not just add decks to a hull to get a layer cake look. From the clean foredeck to the wrap-around rear spoiler via the longitudinal haunch line, everything, everywhere is highly designed.
Palmer Johnson SuperSport plan
Fluid exterior lines. Every one curved. Broad shoulders tuck into a waistline which then flairs out forward to give the PJ SuperSport its distinctive shape.
Palmer Johnson SuperSport profile
Three main lines define the sleek profile. Incredibly crisp and clear.

Haunch close up
The defining element of the SuperSport design concept. Haunches that rise and fall dramatically, allowing framed panoramic views from the aft deck, then disappearing below sightline in salon.
Innovative sky lounge design
Achieved without compromising the design’s sleek profile by blending the hardtop into the coachroof. Designed from the start, not an add-on. Highly detailed with integrated mast.
Inspired use of technology and advanced high performance materials. A revolutionary hull design that combines a slender main hull that increases efficiency with sponsons that have a positive effect on stability, roll dampening, speed and power.
The most power- efficient yacht around. Thirty plus Knots. With fifty percent less fuel. Transatlantic range.
Great seakeeping means comfort. Three times more stable than a monohull. A wave piercing bow and ultra fine bow entry that reduces pitching. No slamming as yacht goes through waves and not over them.
Carbon fibre construction means a lighter, stronger yacht with reduced operational, maintenance and life cycle costs. No corrosion, high fatigue limits.
Hull and sponsons
Slender main hull increases hull efficiency to the extent that we were able to use an entirely smaller series of engines. Reduced fuel burn. Sponsons add stability at rest and at speed.

Styled as a defining design element and still prevents green seas coming over deck in extreme conditions at high speeds.
FINE BOW 16.07.13.png
Fine entry and wavepiercing bow means less pitching and no slamming as on typical monohulls. Softer ride. Yacht slices through waves, not rolling over them. Higher speeds in comfort in heavier seas.
Highest efficiency of any propeller or water jet drive system. And this applies throughout the speed range. Means that the engines can be set for optimum fuel burn for a given speed. Made for commercial duty, gives high reliability and low maintenance.
SPONSON DESIGN 16.07.13.png
Unique design reduces roll angle without adding stiffness. Sponsons have a positive influence on stability, roll damping, speed and power.
Fully retractable into hull bottom means no visible anchor pockets to interrupt the yacht’s flowing lines and clean surfaces.
Rethinking the relationship between owner, guests, captain and crew with the yacht meant introducing completely new ideas and solutions.
Exterior and interior coming together to give the best experience.Every detail designed from scratch. And executed with great attention.
Thirty to fifty percent more living space.
All glass salon and sky lounge. Beach club. Panoramic perspective. Aft decks designed for indoor/outdoor living. Sensational views through haunches.
Aft Deck 2-2.jpg
Maybe the most special space on the SuperSport yachts. Extra wide beam. Open views all around, yet covered; A proper indoor/outdoor entertaining and relaxation space in touch with the sea and fresh air. Flows into the main salon to give a huge space.
Panoramic glass the perimeter of salon and dining areas left clear and uncluttered to give maximum unobstructed views. Large clear span full height windows.
Ideal area for relaxing after watersports, for exercising or for a sauna/steam room.
These give yet another special and private space. Adding light and space to the room.
