Palmer Johnson motor yacht PJ170-03 Sanam has recently left the Sturgeon Bay yard, as show the photos below, taken by Brian Holberg, an amateur photographer living in Wisconsin. The third PJ 170 superyacht is the last vessel built at the yard, following the news released by the US builder in September about their relocation to the Netherlands.

Since then Palmer Johnson has announced that it will be taking over the Holland Jachtbouw facility to continue the building of both its carbon as well as aluminium series of Sportyachts. The second PJ48 metre carbon SuperSport yacht hull, currently under construction in Norway, is expected to be completed in the new facility, with the third hull set to follow in April 2016.
