Leading Taiwanese yacht maker Horizon Yachts, continues to make headlines this week! Just the other day we reported on the launch of the first Horizon FD85, the flagship for the builder’s Fast Displacement (FD) line.
Now, the company has announced that the latest E88, dubbed Christine, has been delivered to proud new owners right here in Florida! Christine features naval architecture and exterior styling by well-known Swedish designer and marine architect, John Lindblom.
Since its introduction, the E88 has been a very popular model for Horizon. As we have noted in previous reports about Horizon Yachts, and as we saw firsthand during our recent visit to their shipyards, the Taiwanese yacht builder prides itself on customization. While, Christine is the 18th E88 hull to be delivered, she has some very unique features. Christine is the first Horizon E88 to feature an open bridge layout, and she is also the first in the line to be outfitted with Horizon’s new “beach club” design. This design has a transom that can be completely opened up by remote hydraulics, and a high-low swim platform, ideal for launching tenders or other superyacht water toys.
Other Unique Features of the Newly Delivered Horizon E88
The 89 foot motor yacht is designed to provide luxury accommodations for 8 guests, in four en-suite staterooms, including a master suite, VIP cabin and two twin rooms. There is a separate crew quarters, that can accommodate four crew members.
Lounging and entertainment spaces abound, including an open flybridge, and spacious fore and aft decks that provide numerous al fresco dining and relaxing options.
Christine is as powerful as she is stylish. Her twin 1,800hp CAT C32 engines provide a top speed of more than 20 knots, while zero-speed stabilizers ensure a peaceful night’s sleep while at anchor. Like all Horizon E88s, she has a 21′ 0″ beam, and a
5′ 4″ draft.
