Horizon Yachts has launched its first Horizon V80 motor yacht The One in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

The One is Horizon’s first yacht more than 24 metros LOA delivered to a Taiwanese owner, and it's the first in its V80 series. She was designed and built in collaboration with her Taiwanese owner. In response to their clients’ desires for more space, this new Horizon series is an expanded version of the V74 model.

The new and improved V80 has a larger interior boasting three staterooms with en suite bathroom facilities. The galley has been moved below deck in order to increase the forward main deck. This luxury yacht also features a unique mahjong game area and larger saloon with a stairwell leading to the more spacious crew quarters.

Now boasting a six-metre-plus beam, the luxury yacht has a larger, more modern exterior entertainment area. She also features a U-shaped settee for up to eight guests and sunpads on the foredeck with a Bimini top.

The One is powered by twin MAN V12 1,360hp engines. She has a cruising speed of 20.6 knots and can reach a top speed of 24.2 knots.

After cruising around Taiwan, The One will set sail for Ishigaki Island in Japan, Hong Kong and Hainan Island in China.
