The latest contract for Horizon Yachts signifies that the third time’s the charm. It signifies that the first is, too. The Horizon CC110 seen here is the third Horizon that a German megayacht owner has commissioned. And, she marks the Taiwanese builder’s first collaboration with Beiderbeck Designs.
Measuring 110 feet (33.53 meters), the Horizon CC110 will be the buyer’s biggest megayacht so far. He commissioned a Horizon E81 (a series no longer offered) 12 years ago. That was followed by an E88 in 2008. Despite the numeral in the model name, his CC110 measures 108 feet (32.9 meters). But, the LOA isn’t entirely unusual, as “CC” stands for “Custom Collections.” (On a related side note, there’s one CC110 on the water, christened Lady Gaga.)
Also related to the custom aspect, this Horizon CC110 features naval architecture by both Horizon’s in-house team and Beiderbeck Designs. She’s a raised-pilothouse style, with abundant room for big parties. How big? Try 20 people being seated in the saloon. Between the large settee there and the formal dining area just forward, the main-deck galley surely will be pressed into busy service.
Dining will additionally take place on the Horizon CC110’s aft deck and flying bridge, for both parties and the owner’s family. The family will further enjoy watersports when the 16’7” (5.1-meter) tender gets launched from the garage. A hydraulic swim platform will aid in its launching. The garage can then be used as a beach club, too.
When just the family is aboard, the Horizon CC110 will carry a crew of four plus the captain. Family members will be accommodated in two staterooms below decks, a twin and a VIP. The king-size master suite will be forward on the main deck.
Though Horizon has not revealed anticipated performance figures, it does say the CC110 will be powered by twin 2,600-hp diesel engines. Launch is set for 2017.
