Tank Tests Complete on The Two New RP110 Superyachts
NEWS | March 29, 2019
Horizon Yachts is pleased to announce that two new build superyachts have completed tank testing in this month. The two new RP110 superyachts are both slated for delivery to their respective third-time owners in April. We are honored to have been entrusted once again to provide our proven R&D and naval architecture expertise for these exciting projects.
The RP110 Hull 7 is in build for a repeat Horizon owner from Australia. Designed in collaboration with J.C. Espinosa and Cor D. Rover, the brand-new Horizon RP110 Hull 7 is fully tailored to her owners’ preferences and is distinguished by a unique exterior profile that features floor-to-ceiling windows on the deck house and a dramatic dark blue hull. She has been designed with a combined skylounge and open bridge configuration that offers a climate-controlled enclosed skylounge for family gatherings as well as open visibility from the bridge. Measuring 10’10”, the swim platform is large enough to facilitate sunning and water sports and can easily launch the three-ton tender. After sea trials, this RP110 will be delivered to her owners as she makes her world debut at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, May 23– 26, 2019.
Another yacht completing its tank testing in the same week was the RP110 Hull 5, whose owner is a third-time Horizon owner from the U.S. The RP110 Hull 5 features sleek styling from J.C. Espinosa and a double-chine hull from Donald Blount, ensuring she is both elegant and well-performing. Designed in collaboration with Luca Dini, this RP110 hull 5 boasts a 25’ beam and offers a spacious and flexible four-stateroom layout enhanced by an inviting and casually elegant décor. Guests are accommodated with ease in the large salon where slatted wing-shaped pillars mask the stairs aft and create an attractive focal point for the portside bar area. A custom 150-bottle wine storage in the salon satisfies the oenophile owner’s hobby for wine collection.
Both of the two RP110 have completed an extensive series of dockside tests and inspections under strict QC guidelines to ensure safety and quality. We will share with you their successful sea trials results and report on their exceptional interior designs in an upcoming web news.
