Last month, Boat Asia completed its 19th edition on a very high note, with over ten boats boat ordered worth more than $30 million in total. Whilst several companies where successful in selling boats to the Singaporean market, one particular sale stood out from the crowd; the sale of a Horizon EP105 which was sold to a Chinese client. This transaction might suggest positive signs of the growth on the Chinese market and an increase in Chinese admiration for superyachts.
Annie Lin, Managing Director of Horizon Yachts commented on the successful sale: “Boat Asia 2011 was a great success for us. The biggest yacht on display at Boat Asia this year, the Horizon EP105, was bought by a Chinese client on the third day…We will definitely be back next year with bigger boats.”
The Horizon EP105 is a 32 metre (105’) tri-deck full displacement long-range explorer. This luxury superyacht is built to DNV 1A1 LC R0 Yacht class and was designed by Gregory C Marshall featuring a luxurious modern interior. All the latest technologies have been used to improve the boats efficiency and lower its environmental impact. For example, the boat utilises SCRIMP technology, which is a vacuum-infusion process known for its low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions. Furthermore, this superyacht features a bulbous bow which maximises fuel efficiency. The Horizon EP105 is powered by twin 600-horsepower C-18A diesels Caterpillar engines which have an impressively low fuel consumption rate and a range of about 3,500 miles at around 9 knots.
Horizon Yachts is continuing to gain brand awareness by exhibiting in the most attended Asian yacht and luxury lifestyle shows and it appears that they have really hit the mark in creating a boat that caters to clients needs; the Horizon EP105.
