Horizon Yachts RP110: Bigger. Faster. Better.

The newest Horizon Yachts megayacht is indicative of the company's inclination to listen to clients.

Many builders ask their clients what they want. Horizon Yachts does it out of genuine interest, and also because of its semi-custom building philosophy. So, when customers who saw the Horizon Yachts RP97 said they’d like even more volume, Horizon’s in-house naval architects hit the drawing boards. The Horizon Yachts RP110 is the result of those efforts. This raised-pilothouse motor yacht retains the family feel of the RP97, and owners can configure it essentially how they wish, with the help of Horizon’s naval architects.

Horizon RP110 1: The Horizon RP110 bears styling by J.C. Espinosa, who has collaborated with the Taiwanese builder on many different projects. Note the blend of sporty and sexy lines. The in-house design office joined forces with Donald L. Blount & Associates for the double-chine hull, and to ensure a 22-knot top-end from the twin Caterpillar engines.

The owners of Andrea IV¬–the first Horizon RP110–didn’t want the aft-deck dining area that is aboard pretty much every megayacht on the water. They prefer eating elsewhere onboard, but they still wanted the ability to gather as a family out here. The vibe they wanted was akin to that of a luxury hotel.

The owners of Andrea VI, the first Horizon RP110, didn’t want the aft deck dining area that is aboard pretty much every megayacht on the water. They prefer eating elsewhere aboard, but they still wanted the ability to gather as a family out here. The vibe they wanted was akin to that of a luxury hotel.

The galley occupies a sizable space forward on the main deck. Not visible is the primary cooking area, which runs lengthwise, to port. Since Andrea IV is a yacht enjoyed by multiple generations, it was important to the owners to have abundant areas where they can spend time together. Other buyers might prefer their master suite here and a smaller galley.

Because of the galley configuration, the master stateroom aboard Andrea IV is below decks. It’s still full beam, and it’s nicely accentuated with a leather headboard and satin-finished white oak. If you get up close to the headboard, you’ll notice grey-tone stitching. The contrast is simple, yet sophisticated.

Family members who want a little more privacy can enjoy staying in Andrea IV’s VIP stateroom. It has its own stairway leading down from the galley and dining area. The same white oak wood seen in the master stateroom appears here as well, and in all of the yacht’s relaxation spaces.

The owners of Andrea IV previously owned a Horizon in the 80-foot range. They wanted the extra room offered by the RP110 because of their growing family. The combination main salon and dining area have already been put to good use on trips through the Bahamas and along the U.S. East Coast.

The owners requested a four-stateroom configuration, though a five-room arrangement (an on-deck master and four guest cabins below) is also possible. This double stateroom aboard Andrea IV is across the hall from a twin stateroom. The latter is ideal for the owners’ grandchildren. Regardless of which cabin you’re in, the look is crisp and clean.

The yacht’s 25-foot beam is appreciated by the owners, as is the expansive flying bridge. The owners requested a handy day head be incorporated into the support for the hardtop and mast. It’s rare to see this on a yacht of this length. Another standout flybridge feature: a grill that rolls out aft of the dining area, so that smoke doesn’t blow over everyone.

The RP110 has quickly become one of Horizon’s most popular models. She’s also indicative of Horizon’s global popularity. Andrea VI belongs to an American family, while hull number two, delivered earlier this year, was for a Japanese client. Hull number three is heading to Australia, and hull number four is destined for Malaysia. Just like the owners of Andrea VI, those clients have put their imprint on each yacht. Carnival Liberty 3, the second hull, has a tender garage that doubles as a beach club, complete with a head. Unusual? For some builders, sure—but not for Horizon Yachts.

LOA: 110’0” * Beam: 25’0” * Displacement: 264,000 lbs * Draft: 6’0” * Fuel Capacity: 5,550 gal. * Water Capacity: 800 gal.
