Improve-it = Horizon E56

Horizon recently completed a new E56 motoryacht for an Australian client that features a customized layout ideally suited more for the down under continent market.  Important changes have been featured to this model to the galley, master stateroom and exterior areas. This new E56 layout has been added to the collection of flexible layouts offered for this recent addition to the Horizon line.  On this E56's main deck, a large built-in storage cabinet starboard side in the galley has replaced a dinette, as dining will take place mainly on the aft deck; however if a quick bite is all that's needed, a breakfast bar with two seats is incorporated in the galley. Below deck, the master stateroom includes both port and starboard cabinets, with an abundance of storage drawers in each cabinet, in addition to the walk-in closet space on the starboard side. All guest staterooms and interior areas offer carefully-designed lighting and incorporate as much natural light as possible, a characteristic of the E56 model.  On the flybridge, the Volvo joystick has been moved to the starboard side for an improved view when maneuvering, and the BBQ resides on the starboard aft deck, housed within a custom cabinet.  The Horizon E56 is a three double flybridge motor yacht with a full beam owners cabins.  Power is from twin Volvo 700hp engines with IPS pod drives.
