Horizon's 32-metre RP105, Agora, has successfully completed her first sea trial in Kaohsiung Harbor, Taiwan, with the Horizon engineering team, owner's representative and RINA surveyors present for the event. 

Horizons Agora Completes Her Sea Trial

Agora is based on the Horizon RP97 model and with a 6.7-metre beam. She offers a large main deck with a main salon, formal dining area and fully-equipped galley. Also found on the main deck is the full-beam master stateroom, which features a lower-level master head. Below deck, the Horizon design team divided  Agora's  layout into three spacious en-suite guest cabins forward and three crew cabins, and a sizable crew mess, aft of the engines. 

Of particular note is the raised pilothouse in the enclosed flybridge. The pilothouse is forward with a spacious salon amidships for more flexible entertaining options. She also includes an exterior cocktail bar and sunpads on the bridge deck.

With her twin CAT C32 1900 HP engines, Agora cruised at 17 knots and reached a top speed of 22.5 knots during her sea trial. She also passed her RINA certification tests.
