An enclosed skylounge and a main-deck master give the new model from Johnson a heightened feeling of luxury.
A skylounge, a pilothouse, a main-deck master, a full-beam VIP, a hydraulic swim platform big enough for a tender, a dining table for 10, social spaces throughout, twin Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesels. Did we miss anything? Well, yes, plenty, but those are the highlights of the newest model from Johnson Yachts, the 110 Skylounge.
At an even 110 feet long, the Johnson 110 Skylounge features four staterooms belowdecks (plus two crew cabins all the way aft), each with an en suite head. The full-beam VIP cabin has a his and hers head with a walkthrough shower between. Basically, it’s a second master, since the owner’s cabin is on the main deck. Situated far forward, the master features a centerline berth that faces forward, a settee to port, his and hers dressing tables, and a head that is forward and down a couple of steps to preserve the 180-degree views out wraparound windows.
Aft of the master is a semi-hidden galley — set up more for a crewed yacht — a day head, a dining area and a salon. The yacht’s 23-foot, 7-inch beam ensures plenty of interior space even with wide sidedecks, and walls of windows to either side come down to the top of the sofas, so seated guests can enjoy a view of their surroundings. Overhead is a mirrored, vaulted ceiling that adds to the area’s perceived size.
A wet bar, a day head, an L-shaped settee with a table and a twin-seat helm occupy the skylounge, and an open deck aft of it can be used in a variety of ways. When guests require privacy, the captain can retreat to the elevated pilothouse, where a fully outfitted helm awaits. With a total of 3,850 hp provided by twin CAT C32 ACERT diesels, the Johnson 110 Skylounge tops out at 22 knots. ABT zero-speed fins and a Seakeeper 35 gyro deliver stability at all times.
