First Horizon CC115 yacht sold to Mexican owner
by Chris Jefferies
Horizon Yachts has announced that it has sold a new custom superyacht called the Horizon CC115 to a Mexican client. Due to be delivered in 2018, CC115 has been developed in collaboration with Dutch designer Cor D. Rover.
As part of the Horizon custom collection, this all-GRP yacht follows in the wake of the recently delivered CC110 yacht Abaco.
John Lu, CEO of Horizon Yachts, said: “We are very pleased these new owners selected Horizon to build their customised superyacht. It is a great testament to our strength and capabilities as a luxury yacht manufacturer. This new Horizon CC115 will be nothing short of magnificent.”
The yard revealed that the owner is keen to cruise with his entire family and so thought long and hard about how best to utilise the spaces on board. As a result, the Horizon CC115 will feature a split foredeck that has been described as a “family theatre area”.
Key features include a large swim platform that can be lowering into the water for easily launching superyacht tenders and toys.
Power will come from a pair of Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesel engines for a total output of 3,200hp. Further details are being kept under wraps for now, with the total accommodation undisclosed, but these first renderings show that the Horizon CC115 will feature sheltered al fresco dining options in both the cockpit and on the superyacht sundeck.
Other projects currently under development at the Taiwanese yard include the fourth hull in the Horizon RP110 series, which is due to be launched before the end of the year.
