Kaohsiung, Taiwan (July 13, 2016) – Horizon Yachts has launched the new E75 motoryacht, the latest addition to its ever-expanding motoryacht series. An evolution in design of the extremely popular E73 model, the new E75 motoryacht model will make her debut with Horizon Motor Yachts Australia at the 2016 Sydney International Boat Show in Australia this month, berths 209-211 Cockle Bay.
The Horizon design team incorporated feedback from experienced Horizon yacht owners into the design of the E75, resulting in a multifunctional and customizable layout that maximizes space and features numerous innovative and convenient amenities.
The E75 model offers clients the choice of main-deck configuration depending on their cruising lifestyle. Options include the traditional galley forward, dining area midship, salon aft layout as well as galley midship or galley aft configuration. Large windows and sliding glass doors opening onto the aft deck create a seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining space that encompasses 49 feet, 3 inches.
The E75 echoes the stylish exterior lines of the E88 motoryacht and offers expansive exterior areas in either a skylounge or open bridge configuration. The boat deck features a bar with refrigerator and barbecue grill as well as the option of a Jacuzzi. The forward deck is fitted with sunpads and a dinette for eight guests while the main deck aft features a dinette and a large teak table for eight. A hydraulic hi-lo swim platform with dive gear stowage to either side of the transom door allows for easy dive preparation and water access.
The efficient use of space aboard the E75 continues in the design of the lower deck, which is offered in a three stateroom/two head or three stateroom/three head layout. The master suite spans the yacht’s 18-foot, 6-inch beam and features a walk-in closet as well as a his-and-hers en suite with separate shower and tub. A VIP stateroom is located forward, with a convertible twin/guest stateroom to starboard. Well-appointed crew quarters featuring bunk berths, a bathroom, a full-height refrigerator, basin, working bench, and washer/dryer are situated at the stern.
Making its debut at the Sydney show, hull one of the E75 series has been customized for the Australian market. This skylounge version features a Jacuzzi on the boat deck and a unique galley aft configuration on the main deck. The aft deck is fitted with a large freezer for storing the day’s catch. Equipped with ABT bow/stern thrusters, zero-speed stabilizers and standard twin Caterpillar C-18s of 1150 hp each, this model will achieve a 22-knot top speed.
Hull two of the E75 will make its U.S. debut with Horizon Yacht USA at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, November 3-7, 2016. Customized for the American market, this skylounge version features the 3/3 stateroom layout with a large custom window in the master. The main deck configuration places the galley midship with country kitchen forward. Equipped ABT bow/stern thrusters, zero-speed stabilizers, custom Garmin NAV and the upgraded C-32 engine package, this version has an 1,800-gallon fuel capacity and will achieve a 27-knot top speed.
“The E75 is testament to Horizon’s dedication to the continuous improvement of our series offerings,” says Horizon Group founder John Lu. “Incorporating the desires of experienced Horizon yacht owners from around the world has created a stylish and efficient yacht that defies size perception and offers entertainment areas that rival much larger builds.”
