Taiwanese builder Johnson Yachts celebrates its 30th anniversary with the semicustom Johnson 93. Like many Johnson yachts, this 93-footer’s exterior is designed by Dixon Yacht Design. And among many other features, it has what the builder calls its signature “dual level vertical windows.”
Thanks to those wraparound windows, this yacht’s main-deck master suite as well as her raised pilothouse have 270-degree views. Most of the windows are tinted black but the five in the center of the pilothouse are clear tempered glass for clean sightlines in low light.
The main-deck master also has a centerline king-size berth and a step-down en suite head forward with his-and-hers sinks, marble countertops and marble soles. In fact, all four en suite guest heads have marble countertops and soles.
Aft, this 93’s main-deck salon with L-shaped settee and swivel chairs would be a great spot to lounge post-dinner and take in a movie on the 50-inch pop-up TV to starboard. Next to here is a bar with an ice maker, a 24-bottle wine cooler and open-shelf wine bottle stowage. Her galley, which is forward and to port, has a splash of marble for its sole, but the countertops are stainless steel to match its 5-burner cooktop, oven, refrigerator and more.
This 93’s amidships VIP belowdecks spans the yacht’s entire 23-foot-7-inch beam. The stateroom not only has his-and-hers sinks, but entrances and toilets as well, all separated by the shared shower. The space has a desk or dressing table to port as well as a dinette.
Two more guest staterooms with twin berths are belowdecks, but the portside stateroom’s twins combine to make a double. Each has a cedar-lined hanging locker and an entertainment system. The yacht can be fitted out with anywhere from three to six staterooms, and can accommodate choices like a country kitchen instead of the main-deck master.
Finally, guests should enjoy relaxing on the 93’s flybridge, perhaps at the U-shaped settee and table under the hardtop, or maybe on some lounge chairs aft in the sun. Either way, they might have a kabob and cocktail in hand from the wet bar, grill and counter to port. A helm station with a captain’s chair plus companion’s seat, as well as a bench seat opposite, are also here.
Performance-wise, this yacht’s 1,925 hp Caterpillar C32s push her to a reported 24-knot top hop, and she cruises at 21 knots.
Johnson says the 93 is another product of successfully standardized mechanical and electrical systems thanks to its series production of 30 yachts in the 93- to 110-foot range.
Ft. Lauderdale’s Gilman Yachts, the U.S. East Coast dealer for this Johnson 93, is asking for $4,300,00.
