Introducing the Johnson 115:
A New Superyacht Flagship
-Interior design created by Design Unlimited
-Exterior lines designed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design
Johnson Yachts is proud to unveil the design of the Johnson 115, the builder’s new superyacht flagship. The Johnson 115 will be a completely new hull carrying the luxury appointments of a world-class yacht. Johnson Yachts has been on the leading edge of the large-volume design
revolution for years and the new 115 will showcase the company’s leadership and foresight even further. With a layout of five or six staterooms and high levels of customization available, Johnson Yacht’s flagship will draw the eye of superyacht connoisseurs in harbors around the
“In recent years, we’ve been getting quite a few inquiries about building tri-deck superyachts,” said Andy Huang, president of Johnson Yachts. “
It’s time for us to come up with a stunning new breed of yacht that will fascinate the world.” The Johnson 115 is just such a yacht, and will make an
unforgettable first impression with her noteworthy exterior lines. Designed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design, she has a striking plumb bow that carries her volume forward. In addition,her tri-deck profile is inviting with large windows, all protected by bulwarks artfully inlaid with glazing to preserve views from everywhere on board.
With an interior design created by Design Unlimited, the Johnson 115 has social areas that center on a comfortable, welcoming saloon where guests and family can intermingle and enjoy the fresh air of the afterdeck through wide-opening aft bulkhead doors on pleasant days, then
come together in the formal dining area forward. As with all Johnson Yachts, the finishes and furnishings are up to the owners’ discretion and specification, and the builder pays close attention to material choices and furnishings that offer a level of sophistication worthy of a superyacht.
The Johnson 115 has no shortage of gathering places, including an urbane skylounge, a versatile foredeck area, and an inviting beach club aft. The skylounge will have unparalleled views thanks to its elevated position and large windows. This upper level also will offer a similar seamless indoor-
outdoor feel, opening wide to an open-air aft deck that also shelters the main deck aft.
The foredeck area is designed for anything from secluded sunning to gathering friends and family together with a seating area that rivals those of much larger yachts. Aft is a large hydraulic swim platform to bring owner and guests closer to the sea. A transom garage opens to reveal a beach club for superyacht-style entertainment. The swimplatform will accommodate a 16-foot (5-meter) tender athwartships, while a garage behind the
beach club can ship an 18-foot (5.5-meter) tender.
A layout encompassing five or six staterooms will welcome a full complement of guests aboard, with the privacy of separate heads and berth arrangements at the discretion of the owner. Johnson Yachts has vast experience managing the engineering and mechanical aspects of the
yacht so prospective owners merely have to concern themselves with choosing the look and feel of the spaces where they will enjoy their time aboard. Click here to go to the 115 Flagship page!

DREAM NAUTICAL APPOINTED AS REGIONAL DEALER FOR NOVATEC LUXURY YACHTS
Novatec yachts are produced by Nova Marine, one of the largest yards in Taiwan. Located 20 miles south of Taipei, the yard has been in business 23 years, producing yachts, commercial vessels and military craft. Dream Nautical looks forward to a long relationship with Novatec and to introducing their incredible yachts to the Southeast Asian market.
DREAM NAUTICAL APPOINTED AS REGIONAL DEALER FOR SELENE OCEAN TRAWLERS
Howard Chen graduated from National Cheng Kuan University with a Bachelors Degree in Naval Architecture and a Master’s degree of Architecture from Tung Hai University in Taiwan. His career reflects a passion for architecture and boat building. He was a manager of several shipyards in Taiwan for twelve years, before he established in 1998 his own firm Jet-Tern Marine in Dongguan, China. Five years later he built the new Jet-Tern Marine shipyard in Zhuhai, near Macao. Since then Howard’s creativity has had no limits with trawlers, exploration vessels, power catamarans and super-yachts…
As Bill Parlatore of the famous American magazine PassageMaker writes « Howard Chen has no problem cutting up a mold and making a new one that modifies the hull shape if it makes the boat a better, safer or more comfortable sea boat. » Very few yachts builders, if any, have that audacity and flexibility! Howard Chen can best be defined as a « Dream Builder », who was inspired by the famous naval architect, Ted Hood.
Dream Nautical is honored to join the team at Selene Yachts. Visit their website here: www.seleneoceanyachts.com

DREAM NAUTICAL GIVES MARINA YACHT SERVICES & TWIN DISC OF SINGAPORE GOLD ANCHOR ENDORSEMENT
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Michael Chan, Tan Chin Beng, Zulkifli Ali & Lim Wei Siang of Twin Disc Pte Ltd as well as Jason Koh & Joseph Lim of Marina Yacht Services Pte Ltd (MYS) of Singapore for their responsiveness, professionalism and expedient service performed on my personal vessel last week.
I was faced with a difficult situation with one of my gearboxes and they both came to the rescue; collaborating to lift the boat, remove & overhaul the gearbox, and re-install within one weeks time. Twin Disc and MYS staff were onboard for a rigorous and comprehensive sea trial to make sure everything was done right.
Also, Marina Yacht Services has what I consider to be the best stocked boat chandleries in Singapore. They are located at Raffles Marina at 10 Tuas West Drive in Singapore 638404. Their shipyard can perform just about anything from antifoul to complex fabrications done to the highest standards
I thank them for their world-class service and professionalism. You can rest easy trusting your vessel to both of these first class companies.
Thanks again guys!
Founder, Dream Nautical
