    I was offered a job on board SS Delphine earlier this year, but since my medical was having some hick up's I couldn't run for it...

    Great looking yacht indeed.

      Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

        Palmer Johnson 267' Expedition "World"

        Palmer Johnson is preparing to take on the world with a 267' Ice Class expedition yacht designed by Nuvolari & Lenard, aptly named the "World". Having acquired the Norwegian shipyard Flekkefjord Slipp & Maskinfabrikk’s, who specialized in building complex seismic, research and exploration vessels, PJ has now positioned themselves to build "world" class expedition yachts.

        Exemplifying this approach - and specific to the PJ World Yacht - a Rolls Royce UT hull will be optimized to a Diesel-Electric Azipull Propulsion system to facilitate multiple operational parameters. This design is said to reduce the loss of speed in head seas, reduce vibration and keep noise levels in check , while improving the vessel’s maneuverability and control. It also contributes to the vessel’s “Clean Class” notification. Further, improvements in propulsion efficiency reduce the required level of installed power therefore reducing both the running costs and the emission of harmful gases.

        The Diesel Electric Propulsion system not only contributes towards the DNV “Clean Class” status, it also allows for greater operational flexibility. The captain can match the number and type of engines that are run to the desired transit speed and on-board hotel load in any set of conditions. The vessel can run with full hotel load at full speed on the main diesels without requiring generators; it can travel at 13 knots on one main engine or at 6 knots on one auxiliary generator set. The vessel can operate on any combination of mains and auxiliaries that match the hotel load and speed at the given time offering optimum controllability.

        Exceptional station-keeping capabilities are achieved via Dynamic Positioning on the PJ World allowing the vessel to be “moored” in environmentally sensitive or restricted areas without the traditional use of lines or anchors. Instead, the onboard propulsion system and thrusters work together to control the position by centralized automatic responses to variations in sea conditions. Other features include a certified heli deck, heli hangar, an optional garage designed for a six man Discovery submarine, and a superior Rolls Royce at-rest stabilization system. Security features such as water cannons, forward scanning sonar, thermal imaging, closed circuit television and acoustic shields are also available on this vessel.



        One of the first features to be seen on this Superyacht is the novel aft beach house which looks forward onto an outdoor swimming pool deck. Adding to the list of luxuriant features are a fully equipped gym, spa with Hammam, sauna with treatment room, cinema, piano foyer and infirmary.



        True to the Palmer Johnson identity, Italian designers Nuvolari-Lenard have ensured the six-deck interior and exterior living areas provide the highest degree of comfort. Focusing on well-being, healthy living and relaxation, large open spaces are emphasized and extensive panoramic sea views create an open environment for ocean voyages.



        The owner’s apartment is situated on the fourth, fifth and sixth decks comprising of bedroom suite, walk-in dressing room, separate business and private lounges, office and a Jacuzzi sundeck with 360 degree viewing.



        The layout design shows a high consideration to the separation of crew and guests. A maximum crew of 27 can be accommodated according to the General Arrangement of single, double and triple berth cabins. Crew and staff living areas comprise a separate galley, mess two lounges and dedicated gymnasium. Special attention was also given to provisioning of the vessel along with generous dry, refrigerated and frozen storage.



        PJ World is destined to be another truly iconic Palmer Johnson design. By providing environmentally friendly solutions that enhance performance while reducing costs and utilizing robust, reliable systems proven in the most extreme North Atlantic Seas - PJ World promises to be a game changing feat of engineering and design excellence.

                    Yeah, I'm sure...!

                    I'm in no way "in love" with offshore vessels...., it just happens to be a lot of them here in Kristiansund

                    That said, "World" has a likeable design though.

                        The first photo looks like some mechanical fish toy jumping out of the water...another one looks like one of my CROC clogs.

                        Sorry, Pakarang... I'm still thinking about Grace or Wedge 2..............

                        That is just not..............

                        well, you know.

                          This thread has had an interesting development since first post.

                          In order to bump it up again on the page, here is another sample of what I could imagine becoming the so-much-requested "CV-yacht".

                          The name is Ulla Rinman and she is homep orted in Halmstad. From what I have heard, she is currently used as a house boat in Rørvik.
