Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The flagship of the Horizon Power Catamaran fleet, the new Horizon 74 PC is an owner-operated luxurious cruising yacht with four staterooms, all with en suite heads, plus dining, entertaining and relaxing areas that take full advantage of the boat’s massive 28’ 3” beam. The Horizon 74 PC just made its debut at the Miami Yacht Show, and it will be displayed at the Palm Beach International Boat Show starting on March 22.

The Horizon’s easy living starts on the main deck, where the aft deck, salon and master stateroom forward are all on the same level. The salon has seating for eight, a formal dining area also for eight, a gourmet galley with an island for informal dining, and a bar. For a luxury touch, the headliner is made of carved leather panels in a high-gloss walnut surround.

Going forward, the full-beam master features a king-sized, walk-around bed, a sofa, vanity and 180-degree views. The foredeck itself is a massive relaxing area with sunpads.  The aft deck has a built-in sofa, a dining table seating ten, a wet bar, TV and dinette. The swim platform can be raised or lowered for access to water sports, and there’s storage below for up to 12 dive tanks.

Up top, the flybridge has another dining area, seating ten, a bar with seating for five, a day head with shower, a separate barbeque area and more sun-lounging space. The boat deck is aft.

On the lower deck, two identical VIP staterooms are port and starboard; a guest stateroom on the port side aft can be configured for a couple or three children, while a crew cabin for three is starboard side aft and has a separate head and kitchenette. Each cabin has a separate entrance for privacy.

The Horizon PC 74 went through extensive tank testing in Taiwan to maximize the twin hulls’ performance and to reduce drag and resistance. The hulls are laid up with the SCRIMP resin-infusion process and benefit from infrared hull testing. Powered by twin 1,136-hp CATs, the boat has a 920-nm range at an 11-knot cruising speed.
