The 19.4-metre PJ 63 Sport, made from carbon composite, is Palmer Johnson’s stylish entry into the day boat market.

The PJ 63 Sport will have a top speed of 36 knots and boast a very spacious cockpit – ideal for day jaunts or weekend cruises.

“The concept of the PJ63 Sport was to create a jewel in the water. Bringing the know-how and quality of our larger yachts into something that was more accessible to people, giving them the opportunity of owning a Palmer Johnson,” explained Berkeley March, head of design.

The PJ 63 boasts the characteristic look of sleek lines and curved surfaces that flow uninterrupted from stern to bow.

The super slim main hull means higher speeds and the very fine bow entry means no slamming or deck spray in head seas. Built for both speed and entertainment she has room for four, the largest deck in her class and a max speed of 36 knots thanks to her Volvo Penta engines. The yacht is equipped with a triple Volvo Penta IPS system that has a joystick for easy docking.

Founded in 1918, the brand successfully evolved from sailing to sport superyachts.
