2008 103′ Johnson Finds Her Third Owner With IYG


A Done Deal

Announcing the sale of LORAX, a 103’ Johnson built in 2008 and located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Congratulations to Patrick Hopkins of IYG who co-listed LORAX with David Johnson of Denison Yachting and Justin Sullivan who introduced the Buyer via Allied Marine.

At 103′, LORAX reigns as a crown jewel to the Johnson fleet. She boasts an exceptionally well-maintained, 5-stateroom layout with an on-deck master suite. What sets her apart is that she is transitioning to her third owner, a rarity for a yacht of her vintage. Since her launch In 2009, LORAX has had only two previous owners and three captains. The last asking price was $3,499,000.

Outstanding Features for Charter Luxury

LORAX has yielded great success in offering charters since its inception in 2009 and what makes this Johnson 103 shine are the recent upgrades done by her last owner.

For instance, the addition of Star-link for top-notch connectivity, the beautiful underwater lights installed to brighten your evenings, and plush new soft goods make time onboard even more satisfying. They also resealed all main deck windows back in June of this year.

The offerings aboard LORAX extend far beyond what we’ve shared here but if you are interested in chartering LORAX this winter, we encourage you to visit Super Yacht Sales & Charter. Ask for Jeff Shaffer and tell them we sent you.
