New Model: Horizon E56

Debuting at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, is the new Horizon E56, an updated version of the 2011 launched 54 with longer swim platform.  The new E56 was recently sea trialed in Taiwan and performed exceptionally well.  As stylish as she is efficient, this 2013 Horizon E56 unites a modern design with a functional and comfortable interior layout. The wide over 4.5 meters beam provides three spacious staterooms, including a full-beam master, a fully-equipped galley, salon with dinette and custom lower helm on the main deck.  The E56 is now also available with a custom hard top for the flybridge which really suits the line.  The hard covers all the flybridge ensuring a great entertaining space for any occasion.  The hydraulic hi/lo swim platform creates an ideal outdoor activity area for tender storage or water sports. The E56 is powered by twin Volvo 700hp engines with IPS pods dives.  In its sea trails the E56 reached a top speed of 32 knots under half load and with 14 persons on board.
