Designed by Nuvolari & Lenard, BLUE ICE (formerly called the motor yacht, Palmer Johnson 150) is a fantastic new 45-meter performance yacht. This stunning new mega yacht Blue Ice sport yacht succeeds the much acclaimed 120′ yacht that was the flagship of the Palmer Johnson fleet. This megayacht turns up the excitement with a super-sleek raised pilothouse which has masterfully fused fashion and function.
The chic motor yacht Blue Ice has some slick amenities - like a flybridge that features a glass atrium roof panel that slides fore and aft. You can choose to cruise in sun or in shade! Other clever concealments include a custom swim platform with a self-deploying ladder and a hydraulically-powered tender garage. James Bond - your new yacht is here!
Available summer 2009, the 150-series megayacht is one of only two yachts of her kind available for a Mediterranean yacht charter. This is a bold motor yacht and as one observer stated, “she oozes sexiness and speed the way many other charter yachts emanate Old World grandeur.” Even at anchor, this luxury mega yacht looks ready to fly - and fly she does, at a top speed of 29 knots.
The typical luxury yacht charter takes place on traditional, white tri-deck motor yachts. Most yacht charter clients are not aware such a unique mega yacht is available. According to her captain, “We can get to a new anchorage faster than almost any other boats and we can then leave before the place gets too crowded.”
The styling and performance of this super yacht is more suitable to younger charter customers, as older clients with any physical challenges might have trouble going up and down the many narrow stairs. On the other hand, there are plenty of lounging areas for sunbathers. For those people who prefer shade, there is a permanent hard top on the top deck.
Uncluttered deck space for guest use is maximized, as all water toys are kept in a garage, hidden from sight.
There are three dining areas, two of which seat eight people and the third, seats 10. Five guest cabins offer overnight accommodations for up to 10 passengers. The master suite is accessible from the entertainment room and features a king bed, private study, His and Her bathrooms, and a walk-in closet. There are 2 VIP cabins with queen beds and ensuite bathrooms. Finally, there are 2 twin cabins, each with 2 single beds and ensuite bathrooms. Both twins can be converted to a double cabin.
In each cabin there is a Lantic brand fully-integrated and centralized entertainment system, as well as a docking station for Music mp3/iPod devices. There is also a radio, a flat-screen television, and an assortment of movies.
The manufacturer builds custom yachts in the yards of their Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, facility with sales offices in various worldwide regions. From its start as a builder of wooden fishing boats in 1918, the builder has grown to be a leader in the United States for custom megayacht construction. The yachts feature an emphasis on a quiet, low vibration ride. The first aluminum luxury yacht in the United States to have both a United Kingdom MCA and Lloyd’s certification came from this builder.
Founded in 1918 as Johnson and Gmack, today the company is headed up by Mike Kelsey, Jr. The company is building several new high-style sport yachts, designed by Nuvolari and Lenard and ranging from 120′ to 150 feet. The new sport yacht line is constructed from aluminum, but Palmer Johnson (PJ) also builds a 123′ yacht from fiberglass in the Sturgeon Bay yard.
