  1. New SuperSports Series unveiled at 2012 MYS by Palmer Johnson

    American Yacht builder Palmer Johnson Yachts unveiled a new line of SuperSports yachts at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). The new line of yachts range from 42-meters to 72-meters with the middle size of the range at 48-meters. The exterior styling is radical and fresh offering invigorating feelings for new design. One of the new SuperSports Yachts is actually under construction.

    The first yacht to be completed in the series will the 48-meter variant. She will be launched in 2013 and also delivered in 2013. Bear in mind that the yachts will be built in carbon composite. However, the surprising stand out feature is not the hybrid reverse bow but the small sponsons/outriggers that protrude from the aft. The sponsons are wave-piercing in design as well. In essence she is not a mono-hull and having the distinct advantage of better stability over a true mono-hull of the same size. The boats are expected to have trans-Atlantic range with speeds over 30-knots. Even though the new SuperSports Series are radical in design they still retain distinct PJ lines and design.
