New Johnson 65 motor yacht from Dixon Yacht Design

February 21, 2012

Dixon Yacht Design has produced a new motor yacht design for the Taiwan yacht builder Johnson Yachts. Called the Johnston 65, the new motor yacht model replaces the company’s incredibly successful 63ft motor yacht.

The new Johnston 65 motor yacht design comes in two versions, one with an open, and one with an enclosed flybridge. Johnson has been very encouraged by the success of their other enclosed flybridge models which are particularly popular in the Australian and US markets.

Johnson Yachts have always been known for their excellent interior space and with the 65 the Dixon team have found new ways to ensure that the new model continues that tradition. This yacht is the first Johnson to utilise the ZF 4000 Series Pod Drives which are coupled with a pair of Caterpillar C18 engines each delivering 1015 BHP.

Thanks to the location of the Pod Drives the designers have not just been able to fit in four capacious cabins for the owner and guests but, with the engines aft they have also been able to find the room for a separate crew cabin, which is located between the engine room and the owners’ cabin.

The feeling of spaciousness on the Johnston 65 yacht is immediately apparent on entering the saloon of the yacht; impressively large and all on one level it also benefits from the fitting of the new drive system which has enabled Bill Dixon and his team to produce an incredibly spacious, stylish and contemporary 65ft motor yacht.
