The unveiling of the brand new E98 marks yet another exciting debut for Horizon, which recently showcased the new RP120 motoryacht to much acclaim at the Miami show. Springing from the practical design and sleek exterior styling of the E88, the new E98’s efficient performance hull design allows for a draft just under two meters, which enables the thirty meter super yacht to enjoy expanded cruising destinations. Offered in both sky-lounge and open bridge versions, the number for the E98 showcases an open bridge layout that incorporates a fixed front glass windshield and side panels that allow the area to easily transition between open-air and enclosed and air-conditioned. On this deck, which features a custom bar with seating for five as well as a large dinette, the owner has also incorporated a commercial ice box, hi/low BBQ and storage for lounge chairs. An expansive aft deck and a bow seating area with a dinette and sun-pads round out the variety of entertaining spaces outside.  Every Horizon is designed to suit its owner’s lifestyle and tastes and the first E98 is no exception, as it features a custom interior layout within a seven meter beam that extends the main salon forward through the space normally occupied by a formal dining room to a pass-through opening into the large country kitchen. Luxurious fabrics, neutral stones and custom furnishings feature prominently throughout the living areas and the four spacious en suite guest staterooms on the lower deck.  Power comes from twin Cats 1600hp standard or optional 1900hp engines as fitted to hull one.
