The groundbreaking PJ 170 Sport Yacht is Palmer Johnson’s even more sensational upgrade to the 150’ model preceding her. “DB9” is a sleek 52m/171’ superyacht and the only yacht of the series, of 3, to feature an open sundeck for a sleek and aggressive profile while keeping her under 500GT. DB9’s sweeping curves and striking metallic champagne exterior ensure she turns heads wherever she travels.

The timeless styling from Nuvolari & Lenard offers a sleek profile paired with an elegant contemporary interior and is one of the largest sport yachts afloat. Setting new standards in comfort and luxury, her highlights include a full-beam Owner’s suite, three separate pool areas, plus a fabulous open-air cinema on the sundeck.

With accommodation for 12 guests across her 5 luxurious staterooms, DB9’s interior layout is both spacious and versatile for an exceptional owner and guest experience. She also has accommodations for her dedicated and professional 11-person crew on the lower deck.

Key Features
Sleeps 12 in 5 cabins with 11 in crew
Full metallic “Champagne” exterior paint with 5 clear coats (2019)
Zero speed stabilizers and speeds to 30kts
25’/8m foredeck pool + transom aft facing jacuzzi pool + hot tub on flybridge

Aft Deck
Designed to enhance the outdoor lifestyle, DB9’s aft deck offers direct access to the water when swimming or using her impressive collection of water toys. The integral teak clad swim-platform houses a hidden “pop-up” Passarelle that affords boarding from aft or the starboard side dock. It can also be used as a diving platform when at anchor.

Twin stairs lead up to an infinity-edge jacuzzi pool, configured so guests can enjoy the wonderful vistas aft, while underway, or at anchor with an oversized sun pad just behind.

The capacious aft deck also features an elegant seating area, most of which is under the hard-top, with a transom sofa, 2 x loveseats and 2 occasional chairs which can accommodate a full guest complement, around 4 teak and stainless cocktail tables, which can be expanded to create an informal dining area.

In addition, there is a round dining table and chairs under the covered aft deck, which comfortably seats 10, flanked by teak-topped buffet cabinets port and starboard, which house a fridge and ice maker. The current owner added 25 tons of sacrificial reverse cycle air conditioning to the covered aft deck area so it can be enjoyed in any weather.

Elegant open tread stairs on the port side lead up to the sundeck, while curved passageways lead to side-decks proceeding forward to the large foredeck.

Ahead of her time, the teak-covered foredeck is another superlative guest entertaining area. Featuring a large 8m/25’ pool (which can double as a tender storage area), a U-shaped seating/lounging area aft of the pool, and flanked by teak loungers and parasols. Hidden under teak hatches are two garages for housing jet skis.

Main Salon
Sliding glass doors lead from the aft deck terrace into a large salon split into 3 zones, the sofa area aft, separated by a buffet from the formal dining area in the middle, separated from the forward formal bar area by a guest stateroom stairwell.

Proceeding forward from the aft deck, you enter the salon through fullheight glass and stainless door, which is one of 3 panels across the breadth of the salon aft. Upon entering the salon, you are immediately struck by the expanse of this bright and calming space. Large windows with minimum mullions surround the area, letting natural light flood in, this is enhanced by the light satin cabinetry, light wood floors with white rugs and white furniture.

To port is the comfortable lounging area, opposite a 48” pop-up TV, which hides the dedicated Owner’s suite stairwell to starboard. There is an 84” TV on the forward bulkhead, behind the bar that is hidden behind a mirror. The circular glass-topped dining table for 10 guests is serviced by 3 buffet cabinets and tray ceilings. As you proceed forward to the centered formal bar across the forward bulkhead, you are struck by the vaulted ceiling which houses an art deco-inspired 3-tiered crystal chandelier. The elegant backlit white quartz bar top adds to the sophisticated ambiance of this full-service space, with 6 swivel barstools.

Set around a central foyer on the lower deck, DB9’s guest accommodation includes two queen staterooms and two twin staterooms with an additional Pullman berth. Beautifully finished with contrasting wood paneling, each stateroom enjoys ensuite bathroom facilities.

Beautifully finished with stylish black lounge furniture and oversized parasols, DB9’s vast sundeck is the ideal space to unwind. Take a dip in the on-deck spa, enjoy a leisurely lunch overlooking the Mediterranean or sit back and watch a movie screened on DB9’s open-air cinema.
