The Johnson 65 is a popular and comfortable cruising boat with a large owners aft cabin and raised aft deck.
The vessel includes two large staterooms en suite, two smaller cabins en suite and also a crew quarters en suite. She is the perfect liveaboard for someone looking for a quality vessel without the massive price tag.
