Lone Ranger has found a new owner


The live auction held during the Antibes show was a first, but it was also a success.

It is possible that this Top 100 yacht will be seen out and about more in coming months.

Horizon Hosts Third Owner Rendezvous in Grand Bahamas


Earlier this month, Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama welcomed the nine yachts that took part in Horizon’s third annual owner rendezvous. Ranging in size from 60 to 136 feet, the weekend-long event included yacht hops, dockside parties and dinners at favorite local restaurants like Flying Fish. After brunch on Saturday onboard the Horizon V74 Satori, owners and guests visited Bayberry Beach for a day of games, Bahamian barbeque, conch salad and bonfire complete with marshmallows. Roger Sowerbutts of Horizon Yacht USA says, “The weather was gorgeous and the location was unbeatable, and we had a few new faces this year, which is always a wonderful thing. We really enjoyed seeing old friends catch up and new ones being made.”
