Published: Friday, 27 April 2012
Horizon recently launched and successfully sea tried the new EP148 Horizon Polaris, which is the largest flagship built by Horizon as well as the largest BV Ice classed private yacht built in Asia. Measuring 148 feet in length, Horizon Polaris is built for any cruising destination with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure and bulbous bow. Her innovative design is the result of the collaboration between the Horizon R&D team; U.S. designer J.C. Espinosa, and interior design consultant Birgit Schannese of Germany.
Featuring a 29’ beam, Horizon Polaris offers accommodations with five en-suite staterooms, captain’s quarters and office in the pilothouse and large crew quarters for eight on the lower deck. The on-deck full-beam master stateroom is equipped with a king bed and a walk-in wardrobe. Four mirrored guest staterooms including two VIP staterooms and two twin guest staterooms are below deck. She also features numerous areas for entertaining and relaxing.
Powered by twin MTU 12V4000 M60 1760HP engines, the new EP148 HORIZON POLARIS reaches a top speed of 16 knots and has a range of over 4,200 nautical miles at 9.5 knots. She is currently preparing for a cruise through the rough seas around Taiwan in early June, and will be unveiled for the first time at the Horizon Yachts Open House on June 28th in Taiwan.
