This Is Palmer Johnson’s Vision For An Explorer Yacht

Powerful looks

Palmer Johnson is an American builder famous for sporty looking superyachts. A few years ago, the builder partnered with Rolls-Royce to create a concept for an explorer yacht.

The 82m explorer yacht is an Ice Class vessel with interior and exterior design by Italian company Nuvolari&Lenard and marine equipment from Rolls-Royce.

The yacht will have six decks, with the fifth-level reserved for the owner. Other features will be a gym, spa, swimming pool and cinema. A large helipad is available aft.

The explorer yacht from Palmer Johnson can accommodate 12 guests and a crew of 27. For propulsion, the Palmer Johnson explorer yacht will use an environmentally-friendly diesel-electric propulsion system. The main engines are a pair of Rolls-Royce Burgen C25 with azipull propulsion system. Maximum speed is 16.5 knots.
