Horizon Yachts to Debut New Model: The E56XO

Horizon Yachts continues to expand its presence in the international yachting market. The Taiwanese Yacht builder recently announced it will be debuting its new E56XO sport yacht at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show held in Australia, May 19th to May 22, 2016.

The XO is the first “sport model” built by Horizon Yachts. According to Horizon, the E56 was particular designed to target the Australian market. The new Taiwanese motor yacht is based on Horizon’s existing E56 model’s hull form, with a 15-foot-9-inch beam. Improvements over the existing Horizon E56 include more outdoor entertaining spaces on the aft deck and on the main deck, a lower indoor helm and three staterooms.

Other Features of the E56XO

In addition to the sporty look and design, the E56XO features twin Caterpillar C12 ACERT-705BHP engines, which can push the new Horizon E56XO to reach an estimated top speed of 26 knots. Also available with optional Volvo IPS 950 engines, she will be able to attain a top speed of 32 knots for the ultimate sport yacht experience.
