In 2012 Palmer Johnson introduced the PJ135’, a speedier, roomier version of their world-beating 120’ design offering the same trademark style. She can accommodate a party of 12 in five staterooms yet offers a top speed of 28 knots –a megayacht for all occasions.
Massive teak side decks are a welcome addition to the class allowing the crew to easily access the docking stations that pop out of the forward part of the deck house. Incredibly quiet and smooth while underway, this is a thoroughbred with a lot of power.
While the exterior offers immense outdoor lounging and entertainment areas and the trademark private sundeck, the interior offers casually cool elegance and plenty of room.
The large swim platform has a hydraulically opening Waverunner garage, framed on either side by wide steps leading to the expansive lounging and dining area on the aftdeck. Here there is also a full bar and day head with shower, as well as a 27” t.v. conveniently mounted on the portside bulkhead for outdoor entertainment. Sliding wind doors seal off any breeze coming down the side decks for a comfortable outdoor dining experience.
The foredeck offers huge sunpads for lounging, which open hydraulically to reveal a crane, a 16’ (4.8M) Diesel jet boat and two jet skis.
On the top sundeck there are more lounging areas with barbeque and Jacuzzi. All three outdoor deck areas each have soft teak decks and mesh Bimini tops that can be quickly dismantled for a speedy passage.
The interior style blends beach house simplicity with sophisticated elements. Weathered oak bulkheads and floors, oak cabinetry with washed walnut doors, and soft leather accents are punctuated with cabinet doors that feature an elegant pinstripe of metallic inlay and fine Rubelli and Nicotrend fabrics. In the main saloon, a 50” plasma TV is built into the starboard cabinet just forward of the full bar and food service station, opening up the space even more.
The owner’s suite features twin en-suite bathrooms and a large lounge and dressing area, as well as a huge king-size bed. Four more en-suite double/twin staterooms, with a Pullman berth in each of the twin staterooms, give the yacht accommodation for twelve guests and additional berths for eight crew.
The galley located below and forward of the pilothouse is an ergonomic layout with Sub-Zero refrigerators/freezers leading the state-of-the-art appliance list.
