Horizon Yachts Launch Explorer EP148 'Horizon Polaris'

Horizon Yachts flagship, the 45m (148ft) Horizon Polaris has just completed its sea trials and is currently preparing for a cruise through the rough seas around Taiwan in early June. She will then be unveiled for the first time at the Horizon Yachts Open House on June 28th in Taiwan before making her world debut at the the Monaco Yacht show and the Fort Lauderdale International Yacht Show later in the year.

Horizon Polaris is built for exploring any destination with an Ice classed steel hull and aluminum superstructure. Her design was the result of the collaboration between the Horizon R&D team, U.S designer J.C Espinosa, and interior design consultant Brigit Schannese of Germany.

'The Horizon Polaris is a superyacht milestone for Horizon and one that we are extremely proud of,' said Horizon CEO John Lu. 'She is a no compromise, ocean going expedition yacht that embodies Horizon's growth and success over the last 25 years'

She offers accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 staterooms. The owners full beam suite is forward on the main deck and includes a walk in wardrobe and owners pantry. The other four guest cabins are on the lower deck and include 2 VIP suites aft and 2 twin cabins amidships. She features a elegant sky lounge, a gym and a spa room which includes a shower and sauna.

She will be powered by twin MTU 12V4000 M60 1760HP engines which will power her to a top speed of 16kts and a range of over 4,200nm at 9.5kts, perfect for those exploration voyages.
