The US-based owner of the Horizon RP110 yacht, Wild Duck, has let SuperYacht Times take a peek inside his third and largest new-build project with Horizon. Photo: Horizon YachtHaving previously built a Horizon E78 and a Horizon E88, the owner gave the 33.53-metre Wild Duck a streamlined profile with the help of designer Espinosa.

Blount & Associates and Horizon’s in-house naval architecture team to feature a shallow 1.74-metre draft that minimises drag at slower speeds and enhances hydrodynamic stability at high speeds.Photo: Horizon YachtPhoto: Horizon Yacht

A bar situated aft has been fitted with a 31-bottle wine and liquor storage.

The en-suites are fitted with marble, glass mosaic tiles and high-end fixtures.Photo: Horizon YachtThe sun deck aboard Wild Duck has a large u-shaped settee and dinettes opposite a full bar with four fixed barstools. The owner requested this space be air-conditioned and open to the aft portion of the deck but enclosed forward with a custom fixed windscreen with sliding glass side windows built into the flybridge structure.Photo: Horizon YachtThe tender is stored furthest aft on the boat deck and can be launched by a Steelhead SM2500 davit. Powered by twin CAT C32s of 1900hp each and equipped with ZeroSpeed stabilizers, Wild Duck has been cruising the US, Bahamas and Caribbean since her owner took delivery in the summer of 2019.
