Peter Thompson, Manager Partner of Yachting Partners International, commented, "DB9 was built by Palmer Johnson U.K. and therefore she is the only Palmer Johnson that does not have to pay the 25 percent import tax that is currently levied on US built vessels. So you can see that it is pretty unique to have this Palmer Johnson yacht built in Chatham, United Kingdom, and to my knowledge, is the only PJ to have been built in Europe."
