This exceptional Expedition Yacht, Dione Sky, was launched as "Turmoil" by Palmer Johnson in 1996. Built in Aluminium, she has been meticulously maintained to the highest possible standard.

Five double staterooms all with en-suite for Owner and guests. One single ‘Pilots cabin’ with extra Pullman and four double crew cabins, each with en-suite heads and showers. (It is believed that the large crew cabins will fully comply with the incoming ILA regulations.) Interior design by the Owner and Palmer Johnson in-house, executed in a traditional yacht style with extensive use of American Cherry.

This exceptional Expedition Yacht was built by Palmer Johnson in 1996 and has proved her worth having voyaged almost 200,000 trouble free miles including the honour of being the first motor yacht to circumnavigate the North American Continent, unaided, with a successful transit of the North West Passage from East to West in 2001 with her first owner, and at least as far again with her present owner who has done a figure of eight passage around all the Americas north and south.

Dione Sky has now completed a major overhaul of her main engines, using all Caterpillar parts and service personal. The engines have been completely rebuilt along with injectors and turbos to 'Zero Time' specification. The end result, Dione Sky will have 'Zero hour' engines that are and look as new and guaranteed accordingly. She is now 100% ready for many more exciting voyages.
