First RP110 motor yacht set to be launched by Horizon
by Raphael Montigneaux
The RP110 series is designed by JC Espinosa with naval architecture of Donald Blount. Powered by twin 1,417kW Caterpillar engines, her sleek design will allow a top speed in excess of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 15 knots and easy manoeuvering.
This 33.53m raised pilothouse motor yacht series is already claimed a success for the Taiwanese yard, with the order of a second hull few weeks ago scheduled for a delivery in 2014.
The interior of the first hull accommodates eight guests in four cabins including a master on the main deck, a VIP, a double and a twin on the lower deck. The RP110 series is also available for 10 guests in five cabins.
After 16 months of construction, the first RP110 motor yacht will start her sea trials in August to be delivered in time to her US owners.
