  1. New V67 Motoyacht Unveiled By Horizon Yachts
    Horizon just unveiled a new model to the market. It is the V67 offering privacy, safety and superyacht style. This is now the third sub-model in the 'V' Series for Horizon Yachts following on from the V72 and V80 variants. The design is penned in collaboration with Jonathan Quinn Barnett Design (JQBD) and Horizon. The yacht was designed to meet a simple question. "What is the largest yacht two people or perhaps a small family could use to comfortably and safely discover the world of yachting?"
  2. The stand-out feature of the design is perhaps the plumb bow which is a new feature only seen on one other Horizon model -the FD series- . The adoption of the plumb bow was the critical element that formed the basis of the V67’s design, notes Christian Stimson of Stimson Yachts of New Zealand who is responsible for the hull design and naval architecture. The vertical bow allowed for a longer waterline, which in turn affords a generous beam and reduces drag at lower, displacement speeds. The larger hull beam not only makes for greater stability and increased interior spaces, but also allowed the team to increase headroom without affecting the yacht’s low profile.
  3. Unique to an entry-level motor yacht such as the V67 is the option for customization. Owners are given the choice of at least two major layout options for each deck which is great in this size bracket. The V67 offers a three or four-cabin layout with a private and spacious master suite located midship with a walk-in closet and vanity. Optional quarters for crew are situated aft. JQB focused here on opening any narrow passages into foyers and making the stairs larger with less rise to optimize the flow throughout the vessel.
  4. Ideal for first or second-time buyers, families and owner/operators, the V67 has a shallow draft less than 4’-6” and offers extended cruising capabilities via twin Caterpillar C18 ACERTs of 1136bhp each. Hull One of the new V67, destined for U.S. inventory with Horizon Yacht USA, features the galley/country kitchen, three-stateroom, and open flybridge configuration suitable for the global market; she is expected to launch in February 2018.
