The first super yacht to be built at Palmer Johnson’s new building site at Hythe near Southampton has hit the high seas. The 170ft super yacht, currently dubbed the PJ-501, was built for a repeat client and is now headed off to the Mediterranean, where it will cruise for the coming months.
Keeping with the sleek looks and aggressive attitude of the PJ Sportyacht series the PJ 170 yacht PJ-501, is a bit longer that the earlier yachts. On the technical side, the yacht spots a first of its kind dual Gyro stabilizers to negate external fins that form beneath the waterline.
Meanwhile, two more PJ 170s are under contract, as Palmer Johnson is also building two 210’ Sportyachts for delivery next year along with a 135’ and the 82M PJ World yachts.
