New Model: Horizon PC68

During the 2023 Palm Beach boat show Horizon debuted its PC68 model.  The new, ultra-spacious Horizon PC68 model has been meticulously planned to meet and exceed the cruising needs of discerning boaters, and features multiple design innovations including of which is a four-stateroom layout with the option for an expansive open-plan salon or an on-deck master stateroom. While the On-Deck Master configuration offers a full-beam master with wraparound windows forward on the main deck, the debuting PC68 features an Open Salon layout, which offers an expansive salon area and a large seating and entertainment space on the main deck. This layout sees all four of the staterooms positioned off the salon, with two king ensuite staterooms forward in the hulls and two convertible twin-to-king ensuite cabins aft to port and starboard, respectively.  An expansive aft deck hints at the interior volume provided by the PC68 seven meters beam, and features a regal hi-gloss table with dining for ten, a wet bar and the option for a 43in TV. The lounge seating looks aft to the Hi/Lo swim platform which is flanked by large wet lockers storing diving and snorkeling equipment.  Ease of access is prioritized throughout the design, and walkaround side decks on the main deck lead to a lounging space forward. A unique and enviable Portuguese deck seating area with convertible Hi/Lo dinettes is a new feature for this model, which allows either sun beds or dining under the stars. The extended flybridge on this model allows for a variety of layout options while comfortably accommodating a five meter 100hp tender. The flybridge and boat deck comprise plentiful seating and lounging, a dayhead with shower, BBQ station, chest freezer, and a bar to port with fridge doors and a Scotsman icemaker. Forward of the helm, an innovative raised hatch and door accesses the Portuguese deck with three steps down to the foredeck.  Defined by award-winning advanced composites SCRIMP system construction that yields the most durable, lightweight hull marrying a perfect glass-to-resin ratio, with rigorous testing by the Horizon shipyard’s pioneering Non-Destructive Methods, the Horizon PC68 is fitted with twin MAN 850hp engines as standard to guarantee quiet, stable and efficient cruise of twenty knots.
