Johnson Yachts plans to unveil the design of its new flagship, the Johnson 115, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this fall.

The 115 is one of two new models that Johnson plans to discuss at the show. The other is the Johnson 70, which will be the new entry-level size in the builder’s fleet.

With five- or six-stateroom layouts available inside a completely new hull, the Johnson 115 will offer “high levels of customization,” according to the builder. Dixon Yacht Design penned the yacht’s lines, with a plumb bow, a trideck profile and glazing that allows outdoor views from everywhere on board.


Design Unlimited handled interior design, including an indoor-outdoor main deck gathering space that connects the salon and aft deck through wide-opening bulkhead doors. Other guest areas will include a beach club aft, and a foredeck that can be used for private tanning or family gatherings.

The swim platform will accommodate a 16-foot tender, while a garage abaft the beach club can hold an 18-foot tender.

At the other end of Johnson’s model range will be the Johnson 70, also a Dixon design. It’s available with a sky lounge or an open flybridge, and is also customizable to an owner’s tastes. Three- and four-stateroom layouts are available, and a fishing cockpit can increase the yacht’s flexibility for various activities.

“We want to create a new line of yacht that sets the trend rather than follows it,” Peter Chang, general manager of Johnson Yachts, stated in a press release. “With the design and engineering of the Johnson 70, we have a yacht designed to be versatile, and yet will still fit the description of an entry-level superyacht.”
