Motor yacht Wild Duck launched by Horizon
by Raphael Montigneaux
The Taiwanese yard Horizon reports successful sea trials for Wild Duck, a new recently launched 24.7 metre motor yacht.
Wild Duck is a customised version of the Horizon E78 motor yacht series designed by John HV Lindblohm and the in-house team. Her stern was lengthened to add a fishing cockpit.
The interior, a combination of warm walnut and dark camphor woods with neutral soft goods, accommodates eight guests in four cabins including a full-beam master.
Powered by twin 1,600hp Caterpillar C-32 engines, Wild Duck achieved top speeds between 24-25 knots and cruising speeds between 20-21 knots during sea trials.
Wild Duck will be delivered to her US owners in February. She's also scheduled to make her debut at the upcoming Palm Beach Boat Show in March.
