Horizon Yachts to Exhibit at the Auckland Boat Show

A brand new E75 will grace the City of Sails, March 23rd - 26th, 2023
Horizon Yachts will exhibit at the 2023 Auckland Boat Show in New Zealand in March. It is the first time the builder has attended the New Zealand event, which this year plans a new format in a new venue of the former America’s Cup team base, Jellicoe Harbour.
Horizon will showcase the latest E75, a spacious yacht with a three-stateroom layout and an enclosed skylounge configuration as well as an enviable beach garage. Historically one of Horizon’s most popular models, the E75 marries a sleek exterior profile with a thoughtful layout and balanced deck spaces.
Boarding from the stern, where stairs lead down to the swim platform and the beach club, the aft deck offers a dinette and bar area with a pass-through window from the salon, which features a wet bar aft. A sliding glass door accesses the large main salon, which has been outfitted in figured satin walnut woodworking with light Amtico flooring in a herringbone pattern. A large L-shaped sofa is situated to starboard opposite an entertainment console.
As with every Horizon build, storage has been considered throughout, with stowage options fitted into the freestanding as well as the built-in furniture. Forward, the galley and country kitchen are slightly elevated from the main salon, but designed so as to not compromise the open-plan feel and sightlines from bow to stern. A center island with a Cambria Britannicca stone waterfall edge highlights the galley area, which features plentiful counter space and storage. The dinette is nestled forward beneath the yacht’s windscreen. A floating staircase to port accesses the enclosed skylounge above, while another stairway forward and to port accesses the guest accommodations on the lower deck.
The lower deck is designed with a three-stateroom layout, which sees a full-beam master suite amidships and two large VIP staterooms with a shared ensuite. Fitted with built-in storage and hanging lockers, the master stateroom features an ensuite clad in Cambria Hawkesmoore quartz and marble stonework and offering a light and bright feel.
On the upper deck, the enclosed skylounge comprises the bridge with twin helm chairs, an L-shaped sofa with a Hi/Lo table for a variety of uses and a desk and chair. A bar and BBQ with fixed barstools augments the enviable entertaining space on the boat deck aft, which serves as a spacious entertainment area when the tender is deployed. Another seating and lounging area has been configured for the foredeck.
The beach club is a unique feature of this customized E75, as it blends with the Hi/Lo swim platform to create an inviting exterior space at the water’s edge. This large space has been fitted with a galley, seating and dining area with television and a dayhead to provide the owner and his guests every amenity desired during a day on the water.
This E75 is equipped with V8 1,200hp MAN engines to provide an extremely efficient and comfortable ride.
“We are looking forward to showcasing at the Auckland Boat Show and discussing the variety of Horizon yacht models available to prospective clients in New Zealand,” says Horizon Yacht Australia Director Mark Western. “From our high-volume FD Series to the stylish E Series, we have something to offer every boating lifestyle.”
