The renowned Taiwan-based builder, Horizon Yachts, is proud to announce that they have recently launched and successfully sea tried the new EP148 motor yacht HORIZON POLARIS. Designed by the collaborative efforts of the Horizon R&D team, USA designer J.C. Espinosa, as well as interior design consultant Birgit Schnaase of Germany, the HORIZON POLARIS is the largest flagship constructed by Horizon and Asia´s largest BV Ice classed private yacht.
Measuring 148 feet in length, the luxury yacht HORIZON POLARIS is built for any cruising destination with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure and bulbous bow.
“The EP148 HORIZON POLARIS is a superyacht milestone for Horizon and one that we are extremely proud of,” said Horizon CEO John Lu. “She is a no-compromise, ocean-going expedition yacht that embodies Horizon’s growth and success over the last 25 years.”
Long-range luxury and style is the focus of the EP148, which features a 29’ beam that allows for a spacious, ingeniously designed layout on all four levels.
EP148 superyacht HORIZON POLARIS offers comfortable accommodations with five en-suite staterooms, captain’s quarters and office in the pilothouse and large crew quarters for 8 on the lower deck.
The on-deck master stateroom utilizes the full-beam space in a functional, well-appointed layout that includes a king bed; walk-in wardrobe; owner’s pantry, sizable master bath and ample room left to spare.
Below deck, four mirrored guest staterooms – port and starboard VIP staterooms aft and port and starboard twin guest staterooms mid-ship – offer substantial and elegant living spaces that will draw no complaints from guests.
Horizon´s megayacht HORIZON POLARIS provides numerous areas for entertaining and relaxing, both inside and out – the open flybridge is an ideal spot for lounging on the sun pads, warming up in the hot tub or enjoying cocktails around the full bar, while the skylounge offers a place to unwind with the gym and a spa room, which includes a sauna and shower. When watersports are on the agenda, the tender garage and bow deck davit are available for worry-free retrieval of water toys.
Powered with twin MTU 12V4000 M60 1760HP engines, the new EP148 yacht HORIZON POLARIS reaches a top speed of 16 knots and has a range of over 4,200 nautical miles at 9.5 knots.
HORIZON POLARIS is currently preparing for a cruise through the rough seas around Taiwan in early June, and will be unveiled for the first time at the Horizon Yachts Open House on June 28th in Taiwan. Afterwards, she will showcase in Monaco Yacht Show in September and display in the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in October 2012.
