Set Sail: Head-Turning Trio from N&J

This year’s Pimex will again show a wide range of options to discerning yachtsmen. There will be small yachts, big yachts, basic boats, luxury vessels, weekend boats, long range cruisers and every mix imagineable.

Among them will be some stunning offerings from Northrop & Johnson.

One yacht sure to turn heads is the world’s first solar-assisted, long-range, luxury power catamaran, the Heliotrope 65, built by Thai shipyard Bakri Cono.

Designed by Albert Nazarov, her quality is reflected in every detail of the beautiful and powerful lines of the exterior as well as the meticulous interior. Each of the four cabins is a work of art in its own right, based on the four Chinese elements of Fire, Earth, Wind and Water.

New approaches to electrical power distribution and management make this yacht stand out among competitors.

The Heliotrope 65 is not for sale, but visitors to Pimex can inspect the yacht – by appointment only – during the show and can order their own custom-build yacht. Heliotrope is berthed at the link dock at L-1.

Another grand yacht Northrop & Johnson offers for sale is a Monte Carlo 65 power yacht. She is pre-owned, but in immaculate condition with hardly any mileage so far.

Her sophisticated Italian design invokes a timeless, instantly recognisable style and naval allure. Modern design solutions are drawn from traditional nautical concepts. The result is cutting-edge without going to extremes, seaworthy chic and highly innovative at the same time.

The Monte Carlo has a characteristic profile thanks to its pulpitless high-flared bow. Original signature features include the shape of the portholes, inspired by the classic bull’s eye.

The third contribution of Northrop & Johnson to Pimex is a modern, Italian-designed sailing yacht, a Solaris 44.

Generally recognized as one of the most aesthetically pleasing yachts, the Solaris is a balanced combination of quality and design. Innovation, craftsmanship and careful attention to details define deck and interior.

Sporting clean and elegant lines, the 44 is perfected by collaboration with Argentinean designer Soto Acebal to create a thoroughbred ORC cruiser-racer sculpted for speed and maximum impact.

The Northrop & Johnson yachts add a touch of chic to the impressive line-up of yachts at Pimex, reflecting the increasing sophistication of the increasingly developing Asian yacht scene and luxury yachting lifestyle.
