Johnson and Jackett may not yet be the Lennon and McCarthy of the maritime world, but their partnership is most definitely one of the more alluring and surprising unions in the marine industry in quite some time. When you think about it, though, it makes a lot of sense. IP has been building bulletproof cruisers for over thirty years. Jackett’s been drafting boats that sail beautifully for about the same length of time. Between them, they’ve wracked up over a dozen Boat of the Year winners. If they’ve achieved all that independently, one wonders, what will they come up with together?
