New Horizon RP97 Summer Wind Ready for Delivery to Australia

2012-05-09

The brand-new Horizon RP97 Summer Wind successfully completed her sea trial in Kaohsiung harbor in April and is now ready for delivery to her Australian owner. 

Powered by twin CAT 1600bhp engines, Summer Wind has a cruising speed of 16 knots and top speed of 22 knots at full load.  Thanks to the advanced technology Horizon utilizes to control weight, Summer Wind is lighter than previous RP97 models – even though she has plenty of sound insulation material – and she runs 2 knots faster. 

Her interior design was a collaborative effort between Horizon’s in-house design team and Nikki Parris from the owner’s selected Australian Design Company. With a 21ft beam and 105ft in length, Summer Wind features a spacious salon incorporated with a custom-designed stereo theater system by well-known Australian company Goldclass – the 65-inch plasma TV gives the salon the feel of a private theater, which is ideal for entertaining.  The dining area, which is highlighted by a large window that brings in natural sunlight, can accommodate up to 10 guests.  Below deck, the accommodations have been designed to meet the owner’s requirements and incorporate 3 en-suite staterooms that provide plenty of livable space on board.   

With her well-thought out design and state-of-the-art equipment, Summer Wind ensures that no matter where you are on board, you will cruise in luxury and comfort.
