    Easily the MOST appropriate yacht to by featured near the art deco area known as Miami's "South Beach" is...

    Palmer Johnson's 120' "Cover Drive".

    This radical departure from conventional PJ design, is an aluminum hulled, composite super-structure yacht with more personalities than Robin Williams. It's one part luxury yacht, one part offshore racer and one part military patrol boat. This SHOULD be the boat featured in the next James Bond flick. With it's menacing battleship gray exterior and swept back /high speed lines, this yacht looks more like something that would battle the Starship Enterprise, than entertain guests along the water.

    The flybridge helm features a carbon fiber dash with a console between the sit down bolsters, similar to an automotive interior. However the interior, with it's glossy cherry wood joinery and hard wood floors, has a more classical flavor, looking more like the opulent offices of an attorney for the Philip-Morris company.

    To view this speedster from the stern, it's multi-tiered transom gives rise to an arsenal of PWC's located under the sunbed. In addition to these light attack craft, the bow conceals another weapon of choice... a water-jet powered rigid inflatable.

    The salon is located on the main deck, along with a wet-bar area and the helm, which also features a wrap-around console for the driver and co-pilot. Staterooms and such are located below deck.

    Powered by twin 2250 horsepower MTU 12V396's, it reaches speeds of 30 knots... without spilling a Martini glass.
