Horizon launches new 120
Published: Wednesday, 07 December 2011
Horizon has recently launched the new RP 120, Muses, after sea trials in Kaohsiung. This is the third RP 120 launched by Horizon, and is the second yacht over 100 feet sold into China by Horizon. The first was the 110 Lady Gaga, launched in October.
The exterior design was by US yacht designer JC Espinosa, a long time collaborator with Horizon Yachts. Her streamlined hull has a beam of just over 26 feet yields advantages on range, while Muses comes with DNV certification on both structural safety and stability. The low resistance hull should see improved performance in terms of fuel efficiency.
Muses is a raised pilothouse model with an open bridge and can accommodate up to ten guests and five crew. Powered with MTU 1350 turbo diesel engines, Muses has a top speed of 16 knots and also features zero-speed stabilizers, bow/stern thrusters, and custom AV and navigation systems.
Muses is the first yacht for her new owner, who named the 120-foot Horizon to reflect the elegance found in her sleek exterior and stylish grey hull. Muses will be shipped to her new owner in China very soon.
