The first Horizon V80, The One, is in her happy owner’s hands.
Not only is The One hull number one of this new megayacht series, but she’s also the owner’s first-ever yacht. Based in Taiwan, he did what a lot of more experienced buyers do. He got quite involved in the full research, design, and build process of this Horizon V80.
In researching builders, the owner was attracted to Horizon’s track record. Its clients, many of whom are repeat clients, often reference quality and reliability. They further highlight Horizon’s willingness to permit customization and after-sales service. Of equal importance for The One was a family-oriented atmosphere, and a safe one at that.
The owner of The One believed the new Horizon V80 series suited his desires best. The 20’6” (6.28-meter) beam provides a good deal of elbow room. It will be put to good use by the family and friends, further serving business needs. In terms of customization, this Horizon V80 has a few notable features. As the photo above shows, the main deck has a mostly open layout. Though you cannot see the table, the formal dining area is tucked to port just forward of the saloon. Also just forward is a mahjong area. Many clients, particularly Americans, interested in the Horizon V80 would normally want the galley here. Instead, the owner of The One relocated it aft of the engine room. There are no crew’s quarters aboard. For the owner and his family, there are just three staterooms, all below decks. Most similar-size yachts feature four cabins. The master is, of course, the largest stateroom. It benefits from the large horizontal port you see in the Horizon V80 profile.
Horizon created the V80 with a good turn of speed in mind. The One follows suit. Twin MANs reportedly permit a 20.6-knot cruise. Top end is just over 24 knots.
If you venture to Asian waters, you’ll see The One in Taiwan, Ishigaki Island in Japan, the Hainan area of China, and Hong Kong.
