The newly-launched E81 offers a wide beam affording plentiful interior and deck space.
Recently launched, the brand new E81 incorporates the sleek E Series superstructure design atop a beamy hull. As is the case with many of Horizon’s new yacht models, the custom E81 was born from her experienced owners’ requests.
They were looking to move up from their current yacht and approached Horizon to design a spacious vessel that suited their cruising lifestyle.
The E Series is one of Horizon’s oldest and most popular yacht series and is characterised by a classic flybridge layout with sweeping lines that convey both style and elegance. The E81 features a high-performance hull with a 6.3m beam, which allows for up to four staterooms and a variety of engine options.
The first of the new E81 models are distinguished by an expansive open bridge protected by a hardtop and a fixed glass windshield forward. Here, a full helm station with dual helm chairs is complemented by a large U-shaped starboard-side settee facing a bar with four bar stools to port. The main saloon is fitted with a large L-shaped sofa facing a pop-up television within the modern interior, which is outfitted in light oak with dark wood accents. At the same time, the spacious galley to starboard has been customised with overhead cabinetry.
The main deck aft offers a large teak dining table, a fully equipped wet bar and a drop-down television. Walkaround side decks lead to the foredeck area, with another spacious seating/dining area and sunpad complete with innovative covered storage space.
The owners specified a four-stateroom layout with quarters for two crew aft. The large master suite encompasses the full beam amidships and features a custom vanity on the port side for her and a work desk on the starboard side for him.
Forward of the master, two guest staterooms to port and starboard comprise a bunk room and a convertible twin, while a spacious VIP occupies the bow area and echoes the custom arrangements for artwork found in the master.
Equipped with twin Onan 29kW generators and twin CAT C32 engines of 1,600hp each, the new E81is further supported by bow and stern thrusters and Zero Speed stabilisers.
