Superyacht EP148 Horizon Polaris undergoes sea trials

In mid-January, we published news of the technical launch of Horizon's future flagship, the EP148, which sported a blue protection film over her hull and superstructure. Today, the Taiwanese yard has provided us with a new picture of the yacht, which it has named Polaris.

To recap, the EP148 Horizon Polaris is a 45 metre superyacht with a reinforced steel hull, ice classed by Bureau Veritas. She has been designed by JC Espinosa with the yard’s in-house team, and in collaboration with the Russian naval architecture company MTD.

'She is a no-compromise, ocean-going expedition yacht that embodies Horizon’s growth and success over the last 25 years,' says John Lu, CEO of Horizon.

Designed by Birgit Schnaase, the interior accommodates 10 guests in a full-beam master suite on the main deck, and in a pair of VIPs and two twin cabins on the lower deck.

The yacht is powered by twin 1,760hp MTU engines giving a top speed of 16 knots and a maximum range of 4,200 nautical miles at the economical speed of 9.5 knots.

Polaris will complete her sea trials in June, and will make her debut at the Horizon Yachts Open House on 28 June.
