Horizon Yachts launches twin RP110 yachts

Taiwan boatbuilder Horizon Yachts has launched twin Horizon RP110 superyachts, separated at “berth” and scheduled to be delivered to their respective owners in the U.S. and Australia, according to a company press release.

The owners shared a unique yacht ownership path, both having bought a Horizon E78 in 2012 and later moving on to Horizon E88 yachts before separately commissioning the RP110s that, coincidentally, were tank tested together prior to being delivered in the same month, according to Horizon.

“The coincidences surrounding these two RP110s are most unusual, and it has been our honor to be a part of this story,” stated Horizon Group CEO John Lu. “As the two newest RP110s begin their adventures on opposite sides of the globe, their owners’ stories will continue.”

RP110 Hull 5 was built for a third-time Horizon owner from the U.S. Featuring a double chine hull designed by Donald Blount. Italian designer Luca Dini was commissioned by the owner for interior customization, including a 150-bottle wine storage unit in the salon.

RP110 Hull 7 features exterior styling from J.C. Espinosa and a Cor D. Rover-designed interior tailored to the Australian owners’ preferences. Features include floor-to-ceiling windows on the deckhouse, a dark blue hull, and a combined skylounge/open bridge configuration that offers an enclosed, climate-controlled skylounge for family gatherings as well as open visibility from the bridge.
