Motor yacht Arabella II set to be delivered by Horizon
by Raphael Montigneaux
While we reported a double delivery of Horizon E88 motor yachts just before the end of 2011, the Taiwanese yard announces the future delivery of another hull in this successful series, but this time to Europe.
Called Arabella II, this new E88 was ordered by a repeat Russian owner, as confirmed by Horizon: 'The owner chose to work with us again in his upgrade to a larger yacht and had a hands-on approach with the European interior styling'.
The E88 series has a modern design by John Lindblom, and retains her styling with the other yachts from the E series. Built in composite, she has a length of 27.24m. Her generous interior accommodates eight guests in a full-beam master suite, VIP stateroom and double and twin cabins. Two versions are available, with hardtop or enclosed sundeck. Powered by twin Caterpillar or MTU engines, her performance-oriented hull allows top speeds over 20 knots.
Arabella II is currently being shipped to Mallorca where the handover will take place at the end of February.
