Founded in Taiwan in 1987 by John Huang in the City of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Johnson Yachts is responsible for building solid motor and mega yachts that are mostly owned by US owners in US waters.
The shipyard is one of the reasons Taiwan is considered a country that manufactures high-quality motor yachts. Since day one, its founder realized how important it was to be innovative and to offer exceptional craftsmanship, which is still a leading principle keeping the company successful. Johnson Yachts was established as a family enterprise and hasn’t changed until today, which is another reason why this semi-custom motor yachts builder is so unique. Since 1987 the Johnson Yachts shipyard in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, has launched more than 350 luxury motor yachts and currently offers yachts between 70 and 125 feet.
Partnered with Dixon Yacht Design who is responsible for the design and naval architecture of the yachts – practically since the yard’s inception – the vessels are modern and sleek. The company has dedicated itself to top quality and craftsmanship that has led to them becoming a major player in Taiwan’s yacht builder segment.
Building High-Quality Luxury Motor Yachts and Superyachts
The luxury motor yacht builder now offers five models on the market – Johnson 115, Johnson 110, Johnson 93, Johnson 80, and Johnson 70. Johnson 115 is the new flagship of the Taiwanese shipyard and is the first tri-deck superyacht for Johnson Yachts with her launch in 2020. With the yachts being semi-custom, the shipyard offers the flexibility to their customers to make changes to the interior layouts and fittings and give freedom to their creativity. Johnson Yachts have more than 250 people involved in the production and sale of their high-quality luxury motor yachts. A significant portion of the employees working in the 12,600 square meters yacht building facility has worked for over 20 years to reach master levels of craftsmanship. A considerable winning point for Johnson Yachts is its long-time partnership with the well-known and respected Dixon Yacht Design team. The Dixon Yacht Design team has designed every single vessel of Johnson’s fleet, making it reliable and stable craft showing excellence in performance.
Excellent After-Sales Support
Thanks to its well-established network of dealers and partners, Johnson Yachts has proven to offer excellent after-sales support worldwide. The yacht builder has official dealers in the USA on the West and East coast, UK, Greece, Cyprus, and Germany, dealing with the rest of the European inquiries, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.
