BVI Power catamaran Blue Horizon is a 2011 Horizon PC 60. Well appointed with space similar to a much larger yacht. She is impressive at anchor or at the dock with her sleek, modern, clean lines. I had the pleasure of cruising on BLUE HORIZON from Tortola to St. Thomas. It was a very smooth, comfortable experience. We cruised at 10 knots in light seas, while enjoying the air-conditioned flybridge with 360-degree views.
Power Catamaran BLUE HORIZON | The main areas
The salon, bar and gourmet galley integrate seamlessly and form a large and comfortable area for entertaining. The galley has the proportions and amenities equal to that of a luxury apartment while the large salon offers very comfortable seating and unobstructed views through the large side windows and aft salon sliding door. The internal stairs to access the flybridge from the salon is a wonderful feature and provides easy access to the helm while cruising.
The cockpit, with a beautiful teak deck, is spectacularly large and offers combined seating plus dining for as many as 14 in comfort. The aft deck has a large sofa style seating with side counters for drinks and snacks. The large solid wood cockpit table is beautifully handcrafted and seats 8 in comfort. Access to the flybridge is via wide, comfortable stairs.
The flybridge is a considerable area to entertain and relax. Six people can dine in comfort. There is a well-designed bar with bar stools, a build in BBQ, basin, fridge/ice maker plus plenty of storage. The aft section of the flybridge houses the dinghy crane and sufficient space for a 13ft tender. The helm consul has a fold-down glass screen to protect the instruments from the elements. The twin helm seats complete this wonderful area.
