Palmer Johnson Super Yacht Scuttled as Artificial Reef

The 38.5 meter super yacht titled m/y Time has been scuttled in fifty meters of deep sea as an artificial reef near Hutchinson Island, at Fort Pierce Sportfishing club reef, about fifteen nautical miles South East to Fort Pierce inlet off the Florida coast on the morning of Saturday fifteen July.  Time was abandoned and unused at Marlin County, American Custom Yacht yard for seventeen years.  Marine Cleanup Initiative and St.Lucie County artificial reef programme with Mc.Mulley Marine services took care of the scuttling.  The super yacht was donated by Martin County Anglers Club in August 2022.
Designed by Tom Fexas with interior by Diane Atwood and Juan-Carlos Espinosa m/y Time is a Palmer Johnson 126 Atwood launched in 1987.  When launched Time was the largest aluminium yacht build and powered by twin 4800hp GM engines reached a top speed up to 31 knots.  Time was refitted in 1992 before sitting abandoned since 2005.
