Many yachts falter in their attempts to tie together performance, comfort and luxury. Shipbuilders often succeed in realizing one of these three priorities, but rarely all of them. The newly conceived Palmer Johnson 48 meter Supersport aims to buck the trend with groundbreaking design and cutting edge engineering.
The Palmer Johnson 48M Supersport offers both speed and efficiency by challenging many basic yacht building principles. A slim hull with a wavepiercing bow allows this 500GT yacht to reach speeds of 32 knots behind powerful MTU 2000 series engines. The unique design of the hull and the emphasis on wavepiercing rather than planing, leads to a 50% reduction in fuel burn when compared to superyachts of a similar size.
In addition, the use of wavepiercing displacement helps to maintain a comfortable ride even in head seas at speed. Strategically placed sponsons allow for a threefold increase in natural stability. Finally, the yacht’s bow to stern carbon construction takes advantage of the strongest and most lightweight material available.
Of course, the achievements of the Palmer Johnson 48M Supersport are not limited to its performance. The interior and exterior spaces take advantage of carbon’s flexibility as a material. The 11 meter beam provides ample space, and the cut out side haunches provide breathtaking views. The six meter single side glass panels in the salon are yet another highlight, and whether you are looking at the boat, or admiring the views from it, it doesn’t take long to appreciate the peerless design. The expansive garage houses a seven meter tender along with three jet skis.
You would be hard-pressed to find a superyacht that boasts the trifecta of high performance, comfort and luxury. The Palmer Johnson 48M Supersport rises to the challenge and passes with flying colors. A remarkable achievement, this superyacht will turn heads for years to come.
