On May 14th, the Horizon RP105 Agora – successfully completed her first sea trial in Kaohsiung Harbor, with the Horizon engineering team, owner’s representative and RINA surveyors present for the event.
Agora is based on the Horizon RP97 model and with an almost 22-foot beam, offers a voluminous 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 on this raised pilothouse is the enclosed flybridge, which incorporates a pilothouse forward and immense salon mid-ship for more flexible entertaining options –she also includes an exterior cocktail bar and sunpads on the bridge deck, ideal for her owner and guests if they wish to enjoy the alfresco experience.
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; in addition, she passed her RINA certification tests with flying colors.
