Horizon Power Catamarans to Showcase Three PC Models During the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
NEWS | October 23, 2023
Horizon Power Catamarans will showcase three power catamaran models during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 25 - 29. A brand new PC52 build will debut alongside a PC60 model at the company’s in-show location on the Face Dock, Red Zone, Slip 608. The first of the acclaimed PC68 model will also be available for private showings at an offsite location.As the smallest offering in the Horizon Power Catamaran range, the PC52 meets the needs of catamaran enthusiasts and curious monohull owners alike, with its spacious layout comprising three staterooms and a compact footprint allowing for superior comfort and speed for enjoyable island cruising. Built on spec, the latest PC52 showcases the exquisite build quality and fit and finish that distinguishes advanced composites yacht builder Horizon Power Catamarans from the competition.
A spacious, open-plan salon greets visitors from the expansive aft deck of the PC52. Three staterooms are positioned in the hulls, with the king-size master suite in the starboard hull and a queen cabin and twin sharing the dayhead in the port hull. The flybridge aboard Horizon’s power catamarans is an enviable space that offers plenty of lounging and dining options with isinglass providing protection from the elements when desired. This PC52 enjoys a max speed of 21 knots, thanks to her twin 550hp Cummins engines, and a 400nm range at 18 knots.Also on display at the company’s in-show location, the latest PC60 features the model’s evolved interior styling and extended flybridge with dayhead. This yacht features a four-stateroom layout with a large master on the main deck forward of the main salon and open galley area. The starboard hull houses a queen stateroom forward and twin cabin aft, while the port hull houses the master ensuite forward and a twin cabin aft. On the aforementioned flybridge, a full bar and large dinette with wraparound seating complements the helm station, which is bookended by two raised settees for enjoying the view while underway. The boat deck aft houses the tender or serves as a gracious area for entertaining when the tender is deployed, and a dayhead on this level further adds to the functionality of this deck.Since its world debut at the 2023 Palm Beach International Boat Show, the first PC68 model has received worldwide acclaim. This flagship model will be available for private viewings via tender service during the show. Multiple design innovations define the new PC68, which offers a four-stateroom layout with the option for an expansive open-plan salon or an on-deck master stateroom. While the On-Deck Master configuration offers a full-beam master with wraparound windows forward on the main deck, the PC68 on display during FLIBS features an Open Salon layout, which offers an expansive salon area and a large seating and entertainment space on the main deck. This layout sees all four of the staterooms positioned off the salon, with two king ensuite staterooms forward in the hulls and two convertible twin-to-king ensuite cabins aft to port and starboard, respectively.An expansive aft deck hints at the interior volume provided by the PC68’s 24ft 6in beam. Here, a regal hi-gloss dining table seats ten and is accompanied by a wet bar and the option for a 43in television. The lounge seating looks aft to the Hi/Lo swim platform, which is flanked by large wet lockers storing diving and snorkeling equipment.Ease of access is prioritized throughout the PC68’s design, and walkaround side decks on the main deck lead to a lounging space forward. A unique and enviable Portuguese deck seating area with convertible Hi/Lo dinettes is a new feature for this model, which allows for sprawling sunbeds or dining under the stars. The extended flybridge on this model allows for a variety of layout options while comfortably accommodating a 17ft, 100hp tender. The flybridge and boat deck comprise plentiful seating and lounging, a dayhead with shower, BBQ station, chest freezer, and a bar to port with fridge doors and a Scotsman ice maker. Forward of the helm, an innovative raised hatch and door accesses the Portuguese deck with three steps down to the foredeck.Defined by award-winning advanced composites SCRIMP system construction that yields the most durable, lightweight hull marrying a perfect glass-to-resin ratio, with rigorous testing by the Horizon shipyard’s pioneering Non-Destructive Methods, the Horizon PC68 is fitted with twin MAN i6 850hp engines as standard to guarantee quiet, stable and efficient cruise of 20 knots. Uniquely, the options for client customization extend well beyond soft goods and interior layout.
The Powercat Company distinguishes itself from the competition with its build quality, after-sales service and options for customization. With each model, Horizon Powercat clients are offered the choice of an open bridge or enclosed skylounge design upon which they can build their ideal layout.
“We are delighted to showcase our three popular PC models during this year’s show,” says The Powercat Company Founder and CEO Richard Ford. “With several new builds planned for launch in 2024, including the first On-Deck Master PC68, and an exciting new concept announcing soon, we continue to demonstrate our constant emphasis on innovation and efficiency as well as our meticulous attention to the needs of the power catamaran owner.”
