When owners have both prior yachting experience and engineering experience, you know they’re going to take a vested interest in the build and design of a project. That’s the case with the Mexican owners who commissioned a CC115 from Horizon.
Though the shipyard isn’t revealing much about the design at this point, it did divulge a few things. Cor D. Rover Design is responsible for styling, for example. Horizon has worked with the Dutch designer on previous projects, including the FD85 and most recently the FD87. In addition, the owners have a big family. Therefore, they requested capacious areas for the generations to gather. These include some unusual ideas, such as a family theater on the foredeck. Yet another unusual request for their CC115 is a hi-low swim platform. But, it’s not for a watertoy—well, at least a watertoy that would readily come to mind. This Horizon CC115 will carry a seaplane.
In case you’re wondering, the “CC” part of “Horizon CC115” stands for Custom Collections. These are designs that the shipyard creates on a custom basis with its customers, whereas the rest of its offerings are semi-custom models. The yet-unnamed CC115 will be the largest custom Horizon thus far, though not the shipyard’s biggest boat. That honor goes to the RP120.
Look for the CC115 launch next year.
