PJ210 The game changer
Is it a tri-deck? Is it an open Sportsyacht? Simple - it’s both. The Palmer Johnson 210 (64m) is an innovative design concept that manages to offer all the areas of a tri-deck yacht wrapped in the muscular and sleek signature profile of a PJ Sportyacht.
It works because it has a unique point of reference in sharing the DNA of a highly successful design benchmark in modern yachting – the Palmer Johnson Sportsyacht. Crucially, the PJ 210 gives the best of both worlds – huge open and covered deck areas for a relaxed and informal lifestyle that flow indoors to 2 generous salons, formal dining and cinema. The master suite on the main deck has huge circular windows as well as a fold down balcony. . Four guest cabins are on the lower deck along with a gym, sea terrace and a sauna. There is also good privacy for guests as the crew areas are all forward.
Guests are spoilt for relaxation choices, with swimming pools on both the aft deck and the foredeck. An interesting option is to use the entire aft main deck as a pool/beach club, moving the dining to the upper deck. There is also a private sundeck area for the owner accessible via disappearing stairs in the mast.
The distinctive PJ nearly vertical bow, introduced on the PJ 170 is retained for both as a defining feature and its superior sea keeping. A helicopter landing area is also available on the foredeck via a clever sliding mechanism for covering the pool.
The new PJ flagship is designed to blend traditional yachting with the more relaxed yachting culture of the current era. Initial reactions to the limited previews of this clever and innovative design indicates that it is destined for a sweet spot in the market.
The first PJ 210 has already been sold and is due for delivery in Spring 2011.
