The Palmer Johnson Revolutionary Carbon Composite 48M SuperSport launched

This Superyacht redefines the most important parameters of yachting: 


To have the most gorgeous shapes and still have the space and comfort of a traditional yacht.

To be fast - yet as efficient as a displacement yacht.

To be a wavepiercing displacement hull at 32 knots - not a planing hull.

To be the largest yacht built entirely from the advanced material of carbon.


A Superyacht freed from dogma and compromise.  Innovating at a level that changes your lifestyle on board.

The transformational design and performance achieved by this next generation Palmer Johnson Super Sportyacht changes basic assumptions in Superyacht design.


A slender main hull that gets a 500GT yacht to 32 knots using MTU 2000 series engines and 50% less fuel burn.


A wavepiercing bow that reduces slamming and pitching in head seas at speed.


Sponsons that increase natural stability by a factor of 3.


11 metre beam that gives an amazing and unique experience on main deck with open views through the side haunches.


 6 metre single side glass panels in salon.


Two garages carrying a7 metre tender and three jet skis.


And a Superyacht that is truly beautiful from every angle.

Transforming the Conventional Concept of 60m Superyachts

Palmer Johnson Launches its Flagship PJ 210

Designed to dismiss clichés, the Palmer Johnson 210 features all the spaces of a traditional tri-deck yacht but gallops to a 28 knot top speed, cloaked in the elegant flowing exterior lines of the much heralded Palmer Johnson SportYacht design created by Dan Lenard of Nuvolari-Lenard.

The signature unbroken line from transom to bow remains to give side-on flow while  the finessed overall proportions means that the beauty of the yacht is enjoyed from every angle. There is a heroic unswerving commitment to aesthetics in this design which is enhanced by top craftsmanship and performance, giving the perfect balance to the package.

The PJ 210 once again uses innovative design to influence the owner and guest experience on board. Focused on elegant yet relaxed lifestyle, this stunning 64m balances and blends airy indoor areas with generous outdoor deck spaces, creating an open environment that emphasizes panoramic sea views while ensuring privacy.

Defined by distinctive design and stylish presence the PJ 210 is destined to be another truly iconic Palmer Johnson Superyacht.

The PJ 210 leaves the Palmer Johnson shipyard in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin at the end of May and will head directly for the Med where a full summer cruising schedule awaits her.
