by Malcolm Maclean
Built in GRP by Taiwan’s Horizon Yachts to a design by John Lindblom, she was delivered in 2013 as a customized version of the Horizon E78 motor yacht series with her stern lengthened to include a fishing cockpit. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite, a VIP suite forward and two twins to port and starboard aft, all with Samsung television screens and full en suite facilities.
An elegant main saloon is panelled in high gloss walnut and dark camphor woods contrasting with neutral soft furnishings. It features an L-shaped leather sofa, powered window blinds, a liquor cabinet, ice maker and an entertainment system including a 40 inch Samsung television with Bose surround sound. Forward is a fully-equipped galley, which incorporates a day head and a large dinette area for casual dining.
Outdoor entertaining and dining is available on the teak-soled aft deck with seating for eight guests, a wet bar, fridge and a drop down 22 inch Samsung television. More al fresco dining is offered on the large flybridge with upholstered U-shaped built in seating, a bar, fridge and a custom table. This area also houses a 1500lb davit as well as space for a 15-foot tender.
Twin 1,600hp Caterpillar engines give her a comfortable cruising speed of 20 knots and a maximum speed of 23 knots.
Lying in Palm Beach, Florida, Wild Duck was asking $3,295,000.
