The Horizon Group has announced that a new Horizon EP series 35m expedition yacht, which is still under construction, was recently sold to an owner in Singapore. The long-range explorer yacht is scheduled to be delivered to the new owner in March 2013 and will be the largest yacht Horizon has delivered to Singapore.
The yacht is the newest addition to the Horizon EP series and has a full-displacement steel hull with a bulbous bow and fiberglass superstructure; she is the second Horizon yacht built with a steel hull (the Horizon EP148 was the first), and is the first to have a composite superstructure.
Built and certified to BV (Bureau Veritas) Classification Society Rules (yacht and steel ship rule), the yacht features double rudders and ABT thrusters for easy maneuvering. In addition, she is powered with twin MAN 2842 LE410 engines and at 10 knots has a range in excess of 3000 nautical miles.
The Horizon design team worked closely with the new owner to customise certain areas and aspects of the yacht, ensuring that she will suit the owner’s requirements; features include a custom interior décor, extended cockpit for fishing, customised dive area with a commercial dive compressor and modified bow area to store a 19-foot dive tender and 14-foot rescue boat.
The Horizon yacht will make her world debut at the 2013 Boat Asia Show.
