Horizon launches first PC52 Power Catamaran

Horizon Group is pleased to announce the successful launch and sea trial of “Quintessence,” the first PC52 luxury power catamaran; she is scheduled to deliver to her U.S. owners in July and will make her U.S. debut at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show October 30th-November 3rd, 2014. “The launch of the new PC52 model marks another milestone for Horizon as we expand upon our success with power catamarans,” said Horizon Group CEO John Lu. “She is an ideal power cat for owner-operators just starting out or looking to downsize, and we already saw she will be just as popular as her bigger sister the PC60.”
Born out of the success of the Horizon PC60, the PC52 retains the signature modern lines, large interior volume, high-quality finish, and sea-keeping abilities of the PC series. She is specifically designed as a blue water cruiser, featuring a highly-refined hull design that was developed from extensive tank testing completed during the PC60’s development, as well as optimum hull slenderness ratio, waterline to beam ratio, and a generous flybridge clearance. Built with Cummins QSB 6/7 550HP engines as standard, the PC52 offers a slow cruise of 8 knots, cruise of 17-knots and top speed of 22-knots.

The owners of the first PC52 worked closely together with Horizon during the build to ensure the power cat suited their cruising lifestyle and needs, a process that took less than a year and a half including tooling time. “Quintessence” features a 22’ beam that allows for an expansive main deck area, complete with a fully-equipped galley, salon, storage cabinetry, and bar seating. Three staterooms are found below deck: the master suite in the starboard hull, and the VIP stateroom and twin guest, with a jack-and-jill head, in the port hull. The PC52’s exterior areas are designed for entertaining, with a spacious aft deck and a large flybridge with a full bar and bar seating, dinette, bench seat, and helm. Upon her delivery, “Quintessence” will spend some time in Miami before going on her first trip with the owners to the Bahamas. With all the necessary amenities needed for living aboard or extended cruising, the new Horizon PC52 satisfies the demand for a safe, stable, comfortable and quality mid-size power catamaran.
