Horizon to build new P136 series motor yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Taiwan's Horizon Group is building on the success of their P130 model to develop a new 41.45m P136 series of motor yachts.
The new series features a 8.53 metres beam, a six guest stateroom layout with additional crew and a bulbous bow. Her volume increases to 445GRT and she will be powered by twin 1100hp MAN engines.
'Horizon has much experience manufacturing large FRP hulls, building to class and regulations and communicating with clients on comprehensive projects,' says Horizon CEO John Lu. 'We are extremely comfortable with the design and pedigree behind the new Horizon P136, and we are confident she will be well-received throughout the global yacht market.'
Horizon delivered five P130 luxury yachts to owners in the USA and Europe between 2007 and 2012, each one built to DNV class.
