For his fifth Horizon yacht, the German Owner chose a custom design from Bremen company Beiderbeck Designs, which drafted a two-and-a-half-deck, raised pilothouse yacht for providing maximum comfort for a few guests. The model was transferred from the production hall in Kaohsiung, Taiwan to the test basin and will be delivered to the Mediterranean in spring.
“Cooperation and communication with the boatyard was exemplary at all times”, says Stefan Zucker. “There was never any problem with language barriers or unnecessary delays.”
Beiderbeck Designs held regular meetings with the Owner over the three-year process in order to accommodate his evolving wishes.
“During the course of the design process, the vessel was lengthened by two feet – from 108 to 110 feet,” explain Immo Lüdeling and Tim Ulrich from Beiderbeck Designs, who are using an existing Horizon platform as a basis.
The only remaining standard parts of the model are the underwater lines of the hull for 28.5m. The custom exterior design highlights a gently sloping foredeck beneath the aforementioned RP (raised pilothouse) that merges into a fully glazed dining room. The Owner’s suite with its bathroom stepped towards the bow can be easily accessed to all central areas of the yacht, giving an integrative feel.
All levels enjoy an all-round view over the 60cm parapet and the saloon is located behind the slightly higher dining area. Two spacious double cabins for up to four guests offer a luxurious space. The empty tender garage serves as a beach club with fully fitted bathroom. With its half-covered exterior steering position, comfortable sitting area and sun loungers, the flybridge forms a striking feature of the design.
Before delivery to the new Owner, the vessel will undergo sea trials this month, during which the two 2,600hp MTU engines together with all equipment and technical instruments will be put through their paces. On her arrival in Europe via ocean freight transport, the shipyard will provide a three-man team for commissioning the vessel, as well as a service provider from Germany for the full warranty period. Beiderbeck Designs and Zucker & Partner will also continue to support the project.
