The Johnson 80 is a four-stateroom yacht with exterior lines by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design. The new hull has an interior by Karen Lynn Interior Design.

Owners can personalize the Johnson 80, which has been built in multiple versions. One has a sky lounge and galley aft, while another has an open flybridge. The standard belowdecks layout is four staterooms including a full-beam amidships master. Finishes and fabric options are “virtually unlimited,” according to the builder.
