Horizon is pleased to introduce the latest model – Horizon E54 AERO sport yacht, featuring innovative Volvo IPS drive technology, an eco-friendly design and immense interior volume for a comfortable and efficient ride.
Driven by environmental awareness in manufacturing and operation, the Horizon E54 AERO motor yacht is a lesson in modern yacht design. Dual Volvo 900 IPS engines work together with the E54 AERO design for improved performance, with a projected maximum speed of 34 knots and cruise speed of 28 knots – all while reducing fuel consumption and minimizing emission output. This advanced drive system also provides an extended cruising range, which means more time spent enjoying all the E54 AERO yacht has to offer.
Exterior styling by hJuan Carlos Espinosa has created a streamlined profile, accentuated by large E-glass windows and an oversize windshield for enhanced natural light and increased visibility – not to mention unrivaled panoramic views. The three stateroom/two head layout is comparable to a much larger yacht, with thoughtfully-designed accommodations that maximize space while retaining an open feel. The IPS drive’s aft location provides increased interior volume, allowing a full-beam master with a walk-in closet, master head and room to spare for either a desk or seating. A guest stateroom with twin bunks is forward and to starboard, with a shared head to port and the highly spacious VIP cabin completely forward.
For entertaining with a view, the Horizon E54 AERO flybridge features sun pads and alfresco dining for eight, and a newly designed helm station with dynamic positioning system makes manoeuvring and docking a breeze. The aft deck seating area contains dining for six, with the option for an aft galley location that provides easy access to the aft deck, and a hydraulic hi/lo swim platform and transom trunk storage proves ideal for a multitude of water sport activities.
Combining progressive technology with smart design, the Horizon E54 AERO sports motor yacht is efficient yachting at its best. The first Horizon E54 AERO was sold and will be launching in November 2011.
