On October 16, we were the first to report the launch of superyacht Paradise, and the shipyard has just released more information about the yacht.
Marking the largest yacht to be sold in Australia by the company, Horizon Yachts has announced the launch of 35.35 metre superyacht, Paradise, hull number three of the new RP110 raised pilothouse model. Hull one, Andrea VI, was delivered to her owners in November of last year, whilst hull two, Esther 7, was delivered to an owner in Asia.
J.C. Espinosa is responsible for her exteriors, whilst Horizon and Donald Blount collaborated on her high-performance double chine hull design, which provides shallow draft along with stability at high speeds and low resistance at low speeds. Working together with Horizon's in-house designers, the owners chose South American Walnut in satin finish as their main wood for their interiors, with accents in high-gloss Ebony, providing a nice contrast with the light soft goods and décor found throughout the yacht.
Accommodating up to ten guests in total, she features a five stateroom layout. An opulent master suite is found on deck and the remaining four guest cabins residing below deck; two VIP rooms midship and two twin rooms forward. On the main deck, the main salon is comfortable and spacious with a large L-shaped sofa and ‘loveseat’, and the adjacent formal dining area accommodates eight to ten guests in a sophisticated setting.
Horizon installed the Muir windlass system specifically for Australia’s shallowe water, which is specifically designed to provide a stable grip and higher-quality anchoring within the region. Horizon also ensured that the Hi/Lo swim platform is light-weight and, per her owner's request, can extend out to 12 feet 2 inches, with a load capacity of 3300 pounds for a custom tender.
Horizon Yachts is currently in contract negotiations for the RP110 superyacht hull four. The shipyard’s CEO, John Lu, comments, "The new Horizon RP110 superyacht model has enjoyed global success since being launched last year.” He continues, "Our clients around the world have been and continue to be impressed with the RP110, not only for her design and performance but also because she offers immense layout flexibility. We look forward to seeing her success in the superyacht arena continue."
Paradise is currently undergoing sea trials and is scheduled to be delivered to her owner in Australia at the end of the month.
