Horizon Power Catamaran Delivers PC60
Built for experienced American owners, this latest PC60 features the latest lithium battery technology.
“A year of intense planning, measuring, technical drawings, photos, floor and wall samples, fabrics, tiles, batteries, generators, pumps, systems, floor plans and more, completely consumed our life while we went through the ‘Christmas List’ of choices and options for our newly-planned Hull 22,” says the owner of the brand new Horizon PowerCat PC60. Christened Homarus in a private ceremony held in Florida, this latest PC60 was commissioned for experienced owners who knew exactly what they wanted on their sixth boat.
Avid cruisers with commercial fishing experience, (hence the name HOMARUS, the Latin genus of lobster) the owners paid particular attention to the mechanicals of their new yacht and worked with the Horizon team on numerous customizations to accommodate their plans to live aboard year-round, including the installation of a state-of-the-art Dometic Spot Zero watermaking system as well as the latest lithium battery technology.
The owners specified a four-stateroom layout comprised of a full-beam master suite on the main deck, a VIP on suite and twin cabin in the starboard hull, and a twin on suite in the port hull. On the main deck, the owners redesigned the standard galley/bar arrangement in the salon and incorporated a large seating area opposite.
The air-conditioned and enclosed flybridge has been specified with a bar and dayhead opposite a seating and dining area. Space for a stationary exercise bike was also fitted in this space. A BBQ grill and freezer on the boat deck extends the al fresco entertaining options.
Powered by twin Cummins diesels of 705hp each, which afford a range of 551nm @ 18 knots, Homarus will cruise throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean, up the East Coast of the United States and into Canada and back. Upon taking delivery, her owners said, “The incredible detail that has made our vessel a masterpiece could not have been achieved without the meticulous attention by all of the Horizon people, from the office support to the craftsmen. The workmanship in all ways is flawless. The functions impeccable. Living aboard this gem has been a life changer and we pinch ourselves every day that we are spending our days in our sweet new home on the water.”
