In build Horizon 108 RP by Beiderbeck is designed for the best views
by Risa Merl
The new Horizon 108RP yacht is already in build at the Taiwanese yard, commissioned for a German client. The Bremen, Germany based design house was briefed by the experienced owner to create a yacht that combines maximum comfort, all-around visibility at every deck level, elegant styling and clever design features.
The new build Horizon 108RP is based on a proven hull form from Horizon Yachts, but Beiderbeck has put its own twist on the exterior styling and layout of the yacht.
The 33 metre yacht features a half-raised pilothouse design, with the pilothouse set a half-metre above the dining room. “Afterall, the pilot still wants to feel like they are at sea, even when behind the wheel,” the designers say.
The main deck is designed so that spaces flow seamlessly, with the saloon integrated into the raised dining area. Outside, the bulwarks are thoughtfully designed to give just enough privacy whilst also providing an easy view when sitting on the aft deck, ideal when berthed stern-to.
Three steps lead to the main-deck master, set far forward at the bow, which stretches the full seven metre width – another space that is designed to enjoy the best possible views of the outside while inside the yacht.
Speaking of views, the foredeck slopes slightly forward, giving the captain an undisrupted perspective over the bow for safe handling.
The flybridge, partially covered by a hardtop, will be accessed via a flight of stairs on the outside. Up top, abundant vistas can be enjoyed from a perch above sun loungers or trio of helm seats forward.
Guests will be accommodated in en suite double staterooms below deck, while crew quarters are set forward.
Another notable feature is the garage, that doubles as a beach club when the tender – up to 5.2 metres – is launched. The tender will be easy to board thanks to a lowering swim platform and hydraulic swim ladder.
Founder of Beiderbeck Designs, Jörg Beiderbeck, recently passed away. As proven by this latest design, the studio he set up is continuing well in his memory.
