New Model: Horizon V80

Horizon is pleased to announce the launch and delivery of the first V80 to a new owner in Taiwan at the end of July. The launch of V80 marks two milestones for Horizon, she is hull one of the new model but also the first over 24 meter private super yacht delivered to a Taiwan owner. The Horizon V80 is a cockpit style yacht and was re-imagined from the V72 model after listening to client feedback; increased interior volume and added a variety of amenities and features, such as the ability to accommodate three or four spacious ensuite staterooms and an internal stairwell from the salon to crew. On the exterior, Horizon incorporated a U-shaped settee for eight persons and dual sun-pads in the fore-deck, with the option for a Bimini top if desired, and the crew quarters also saw an increase in space. Horizon’s ability to customize a yacht is one of the main reasons the owner chose to build with the famous Taiwan builder, and he visited the shipyard and met with the in-house designers many times, both before signing the contract and during the build of the V80. Built for a first-time yacht owner, V80 first hull was titled “The One” and also features a number of custom items requested by the owner: a three stateroom layout below deck, with an oversize master; a mahjong area forward of the salon on the main deck; and the galley aft of the engines in lieu of a crew area. The owner liked the V80’s quality, design and performance, and the extra twenty feet plus beam also provided a functional space for his family, entertaining guests and business demands. Equipped with twin Man 1360hp engines the V80 cruises at 20 knots and tops out at 24 knots.
