Project: Horizon PC58

Horizon from Taiwan seems to be one of the few builders who is putting a lot of projects and models with catamaran, i.e. dual hull shape.  The PC58 project is indeed the fourth power catamaran coming from Horizon of which two are innovative solar powered models.  Currently under construction with the Scrimp infusion method and set to launch by the fall the PC58 is a design by Winchester from Florida for lines and interior, and Lavranos from New Zealand to what concerns the under water shape.  So far Horizon has not given any details but the flybridge and aft deck do look large in the renderings for a boat measuring seventeen meters in length.  Power is to be from twin 600hp Cummins to what is an asymmetrical displacement shape.
