PALMER JOHNSON HERITAGE
Pioneering the use of aluminium in their sailing yachts which won every major race; building a yacht in 1979 that was the fastest in the world for over a decade; followed by carbon fibre in the new SuperSport series; pushing the boundaries of design and technology has always been a PJ hallmark. The Niniette is the latest expression of PJ’s forward thinking design ethos together with its uncompromised respect of artistry and craftsmanship.
From winning the very first Monte Carlo Grand Prix in 1924, to having the record for the world’s fastest car today, innovation has always been a core value of Bugatti. However few people know, Bugatti was once a boat builder too. Commissioned to create a one-of-a kind speedboat in 1930 by Prince Carlo Maurizio Ruspoldi, founder Ettore Bugatti named this low on the water beauty the Niniette – the family pet name of his youngest daughter Lidia.
