A Sure Thing
|There’s no getting around the beauty or quality of the 131-foot Palmer Johnson Inevitable.|
Ask most custom-yacht
owners why they commissioned their vessel, and you’ll get a range
of answers from “I wanted to incorporate my own ideas” to “I
wanted more room for my family” and even “I always wanted a
yacht from Yard ABC.” Ask them the more pointed question of what
inspired their current vessel’s look, however, and chances are their
answers will all be strikingly similar. They will readily admit that they
borrowed elements of her exterior styling and/or interior design from
other yachts they’d seen in their travels.
