Award-Winning Horizon E88 Skylounge Motoryacht Launched, Delivering to U.S. this Fall
NEWS | August 16, 2016
Horizon Yachts has just launched a new E88 skylounge motoryacht, hull twenty of the popular model, which will deliver to the U.S. this fall and showcase at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) from Nov 3-7th as an available yacht for sale. The recipient of the coveted Taiwan Excellence Award, the Horizon E88 motoryacht offers an optimized hull design with a strong, performance-oriented hull, and this E88 has been customized with the U.S. market in mind, with a four en suite stateroom layout, hydraulic beach club design, island-friendly 5’6” draft, and skylounge design for comfortably piloting the yacht in any weather condition.
The design theme behind this new E88 is luxury island living. Horizon’s design team chose light Oak in a semi-gloss finish for the main wood and trimmed the cabinetry with rich Teak for balance. Neutral stones and light soft goods are paired with pillows and accents in blue tones – navy, cerulean, and teal – to brighten the spaces and provide contrast again the warmth of the wood. Maple wood is used in the crew quarters to keep this area light and open.
On the main deck, a spacious salon is the perfect place to entertain guests, with a comfortable L-shaped sofa and 55-inch LED TV; adjacent to the salon, the dining area accommodates up to 10 guests. The galley is fully equipped, with a side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator and pantry space plus four freezer drawers underneath, and also features a new design with an island configuration that allows for a more relaxed and casual feel for the space. Completely forward is a large country kitchen, with a large dinette and fixed table ideal for enjoying breakfast or lunch with a view out of the forward windows.
Below deck, the four en suite stateroom layout includes a full-beam master, VIP stateroom in the bow, and port and starboard twin guest staterooms; crew quarters are located aft of the engines for privacy. Up in the skylounge, the helm station is well-planned and accompanied by twin STIDD helm chairs; the skylounge also features a desk, dayhead, and L-shaped dinette, which can be converted to an additional sleeping area if needed.
A popular exterior feature, the E88’s aft beach club incorporates a hydraulic garage door and Hi/Lo swim platform for an easy transition into watersports. Her aft deck provides a comfortable dinette, wet bar and flip-down 32” TV, and forward on the bow, guests can enjoy cocktails in the U-shaped dinette or lounge on sunpads. Up on the boat deck, a BBQ and refrigerator invite alfresco fun at the L-shaped dinette. A sliding glass window between the boat deck and interior skylounge dinette, plus a sliding glass door, allows these areas to be used together for entertaining guests, if desired.
Equipped with twin CAT 1900HP engines, custom GARMIN navigation, a Maretron monitoring system, zero speed stabilizers, bow/stern thrusters and more, this new Horizon E88 will be sure to make waves as a top luxury motoryacht in her class!
