There She Is, All 210 Feet Of Her

 

It's not every day you see a 210-foot yacht moving down the street.

That was the case Friday in Sturgeon Bay, as Palmer Johnson rolled out the largest luxury yacht it's ever built, easing it out of the garage and coaxing it down 1st Avenue to Bay Shipbuilding for its launch.

Palmer Johnson General Manager Peter White says it's always exciting to see the vessels come out into the open air.

We caught up with White about halfway through the transit, when utility crews were helping ease the yacht past some wires.




White says about 150 workers had a hand in constructing the Nuvolari-Lenard designed yacht -- part of Palmer Johnson's Sport Yacht series -- which boasts a length of 210 feet (64 meters) and a beam of about 31 feet (9.5 meters).

White says the vessel will go through about two weeks of sea trials and if all goes well will leave Sturgeon Bay on May 25.
