Second RP110 launched
Horizon Group are pleased to announce the launch of “Carnival Liberty 3,” the second hull of the new RP110 raised pilothouse model.
She will make her debut at the 2014 Taiwan International Boat Show in Kaohsiung, Taiwan from May 8th-11th, and will then be delivered to her new owner in Japan this June.
Horizon CEO John Lu said:
“We are excited to launch hull two of the Horizon RP110 superyacht, a model that has seen so much success already. We have greatly enjoyed working with her experienced owner in bringing his vision to life; it is also an honor for us to debut ‘Carnival Liberty 3’ at the first boat show in our home country.”
As with hull one, “Carnival Liberty 3” has been customized to suit her owner, who chose a number of layout configurations and features that separate her from her sistership launched last year. The owner also worked with famous Italian designer Luca Dini on the interior décor.
The owner opted for the five stateroom layout, with an on-deck master and the remaining four staterooms below deck — two mirrored VIP staterooms midships, and two twin guest staterooms forward. Crew quarters and mess are completely forward on the lower deck and sleep a total of six.
A major feature for this RP110 is the tender garage, which has a hydraulic garage door and a davit for easy tender launch and retrieval, also a Hi/Lo swim platform for diving or jet skis; the garage also includes a day head, work bench, and storage for flexible use as a beach club.
On the aft deck, Horizon built a custom bait tank to satisfy the owner’s love of fishing; the aft deck has traditional dinette seating for 10 persons and offers an access door to the tender garage. The owner chose two dinette seating areas aft the bar and the BBQ for entertaining on the flybridge; a Jacuzzi and space for a second tender or lounge chairs are located on the boat deck.
She is powered by twin CAT C32A 1900HP engines and reaches a cruising speed of 18 knots and a top speed of 22 knots – her owner noted his extreme satisfaction with her performance during the April 10th sea trial. Following the delivery of his new superyacht, the owner plans to cruise and fish with his family on board in Japan.
The Horizon RP110 model is a global success for Horizon, with hull three slated for Australia this year, hull four is under discussion for Malaysia, and hull five is also with other clients.
The variety of clientele, layouts, and amenities offered showcase the versatility of the Horizon RP110 superyacht model as well as Horizon’s flexibility as a custom luxury yacht builder.
