Project: Horizon E54 Aero

Horizon presents its latest project the E54 Aero a motor yacht which is to be powered by Volvo IPS drive technology, an eco-friendly design, spacious interior volume, and efficient ride.  Driven by environmental awareness in manufacturing and operation, the Horizon E54 Aero is a modern yacht not only in looks and construction but also in its usage. Exterior styling to the E54 Aero is by JC Espinosa who created a modern streamlined profile, accentuated by large E-glass windows and an oversize windshield for enhanced natural light, increased visibility, and panoramic views. The three stateroom two head layout is comparable to that of a 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 E54 Aero flybridge features sun pads and alfresco dining for eight, and a newly designed helm station with dynamic positioning system makes maneuvering and docking easy. The aft deck seating area seats six, with the option for an aft galley location that provides easy access to the aft deck, and a hydraulic high low swim platform and transom trunk storage proves ideal for a multitude of water sport activities.  The twin Volvo IPS900 with 670hp engines will give a top speed of 34 knots, and a cruise of 28 knots to the Horizon E54 Aero.  Hull number one was sold to a down under client and is scheduled for delivery at the end of this year.
