Horizon Yachts New P136 Model

The Horizon Group has just announced that they are elevating the successful Horizon P130 model with a new P136 model that features a 28ft beam, a six guest stateroom layout with additional crew accommodation and bulbous bow. "Horizon has much experience manufacturing large FRP hulls, building to classes and regulations, and communicating with clients on comprehensive projects," says Horizon CEO John Lu. "We are extremely comfortable with the design and pedigree behind the new Horizon P136, and we are confident she will be well-received throughout the global yacht market."

The new P136 is currently the largest FRP hull that Horizon builds and offers enhanced performance with her bulbous bow, which helps reduce water and wave resistance, improved interior volume due to her 445 gross tonnage and increased waterline length by 2 feet 8 inches. The accommodation includes a master suite located forward on the main deck, five guest staterooms on the lower deck, and crews quarters aft of the engine room.

Horizon delivered five P130 luxury yachts to owners in the U.S. and Europe between 2007 and 2012, each one built standard to DNV classification and adhering to EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and IMO (International Maritime Organization) MARPOL regulations during construction. These build standards will be implemented in the new Horizon P136 model as well, ensuring she will be yet another superyacht that offers a reduced environmental impact.
