Horizon delivers first RP110


Horizon Group launched Andrea VI, hull number one of the company’s 110-foot (34-meter) RP110 raised-pilothouse model. Delivered to her second-time U.S. Horizon owner in October, she will make her public debut at the 2014 Palm Beach International Boat Show in March. The RP110’s exterior styling, designed by J.C. Espinosa, focuses on providing unobstructed views with large, sweeping windows that combine with fluid style lines to create a sleek and modern pro­file—a trait of the Horizon RP series. Donald Blount and Associates worked with Horizon’s design team for two years on the double-chine hull design, which was adopted to accomplish two aims: low resistance at low speed and high dynamic stability at high speed. Propellers housed in tunnels provide balance between the RP110’s trim and shallow 6-foot draft. Powered by twin 1,800-horsepower Caterpillar C32A engines, Andrea VI cruises at 18 knots and has a top speed of 22 knots, according to Horizon. She is equipped with the Octoplex yacht monitoring sys­tem, bow and stern thrusters, digital stabilizers, a 1,400-gallon-per-day watermaker and a Hamann sanitary treatment system. The yacht’s main deck incorporates an expansive salon with wet bar, formal dining for 10, a large galley and pantry, and a country kitchen forward. Her four guest staterooms are below and include a full-beam master, port and starboard queen guest suites and a VIP cabin in the bow. Her owners planned to cruise the Caribbean with family and friends for the remainder of the winter season.
