US superyacht builder Palmer Johnson has just rolled out the first 48 metre Palmer Johnson SuperSport. The yacht features a piercing bow that is designed to reduce pitching, and to be 3 times more stable than a monohull.
The yard came up with a slender main hull that increases efficiency with sponsons that have a positive effect on stability, roll dampening, speed and power.
The result is a projected top speed of over 30 knots, yet with 50% less fuel consumption.
