Horizon Motor Yachts Australia Basks in the Largest Sanctuary Cove Boat Show To Date
The sun was shining over the Horizon Motor Yachts Australia (HMYA) display at the 2018 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
With four luxury yachts on display — the brand-new Horizon E75, the Horizon E73, the Horizon E88 and the Horizon RP97 Superyacht — HMYA hosted the best luxury motor yacht showcase at the show, which ran from May 24th to May 27th.
The star of the show was undisputedly the popular Horizon E75, whose design springs from the extremely popular E73 model. Conceptualized from feedback from Horizon owners around the world, the E75 features increased interior volume and numerous entertaining areas throughout, including a creative foredeck seating area, an exterior bar on the boat deck, and an incredible aft deck for luxurious, shaded relaxation. With three new build deals in negotiation, the E75 is poised to be the next must-have Horizon model in Australia.
The Raised Pilothouse Horizon RP97 was another crowd favorite, which drew visitors with a FunAir Inflatable Slide that gave guests a taste of the yachting lifestyle. The RP97 offers the best of both worlds in a unique blend of interior and exterior space. A 21’ 6” beam allows for four spacious en suite staterooms along with the option of a country kitchen or on-deck master. The RP97 also provides an enclosed helm area as well as a full exterior flybridge deck with outside entertaining areas and tender storage.
The Horizon E88 attracted show visitors from all over Australia as well as New Zealand. This contemporary-styled vessel combines a performance-oriented hull with a sleek superstructure that retains the family resemblance of other E Series models, thanks to the keen eye of her designer John Lindblom. The interior layout echoes Horizon’s successful concept of ensuring living comfort and spacious accommodations.
“The 2018 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show has been one of our best shows to date, with an outstanding amount of inquiries on boats over 80 feet,” said Horizon Motor Yacht Australia Director Gary Wahlstedt. “It looks to be a sell-out show with strong leads to follow up on all vessels showcased during the show.”
With increased inquiries on the larger end of the Horizon yacht models over the past few months and a huge response to the four vessels on display at the show, all signs point to a successful year of sales for Horizon Motor Yachts Australia.
