"Palmer Johnson’s history of building the world’s most innovative yachts has been combined with Bugatti’s signature engineering traits such as the accentuated centre line, perfect symmetry and a sweeping signature curve. PJ traits such as using advanced materials like carbon and a revolutionary hull have been incorporated seamlessly into this yacht design that is quite simply like no other. A masterful and intuitive blend of design, technology and performance. Unique as a class of Superyacht, a fusion of extremes. An iconic design. The original and best." - Palmer Johnson
