Horizon V68 Sells to an Experienced Owner Operator
NEWS | July 29, 2020
Horizon Yachts USA is pleased to announce the sale of the Horizon V68. In a deal brokered in conjunction with broker Thom Cross of Riggs Yacht Sales in Wilmington, North Carolina, Hull One of the V68 model has been purchased by an experienced American owner.
Designed in collaboration with renowned Seattle-based superyacht designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett, the V68 concept was intended as a true “pocket superyacht” that boasted the space and amenities desired aboard a large yacht in an easy-to-handle owner/operator layout. Horizon worked with Stimson Yacht Design to draw the lines of the yacht, which resulted in a 66’ 1” waterline with a vertical bow.
In the V68, the experienced owner found a boat that met his request for plenty of amenities while allowing him to comfortably navigate from either the interior helm station or the open flybridge – which offers EZ2CY enclosures during inclement weather. The interior layout was a draw, particularly the internal staircase from the main deck to the flybridge and the built-in staircase from the aft deck to the flybridge. The wide walkaround side decks and wireless docking controls make carrying lines and fenders and the overall docking operation effortless.
Reminiscent of a chic city loft, the V68’s 19’ 6” beam, large sections of glass and open interior layout drew the owner to the three-stateroom yacht, which offered much larger accommodations and indoor/outdoor entertaining spaces than yachts of similar size. The amount of exterior areas for entertaining were more than ideal, from the boat deck bar and the open flybridge with a dayhead to the foredeck seating and aft deck. But perhaps it was the beach club aboard the V68 that sealed the deal, giving these owners much more than they could imagine in a vessel under 75 feet in length.
The new owners took delivery of their new yacht on July 22, 2020 and plan to spend the rest of the summer cruising the mid-Atlantic.
