As one of the world’s major leading yacht manufacturers to build the megayachts, the Horizon Group has excellent ability, abundant experience, state-of-the-art facilities and advanced innovative technology to build the unique megayacht for the global customers. The latest completed semi-custom megayacht is Espresso the second vessel of Horizon Elegance 120 Raised Pilothouse motor yacht.
Designed by J.C. Espinosa, the Espresso is a raised pilothouse motor yacht featuring a sleek style and voluminous living spaces – thanks to the generous beam and well-appointed accommodations layout. The yacht features rich dark blue exterior with military-type MTU 3,650 hp engines reaching a top speed of 26 knots.
In order to meet the owner’s request for 26-knot top speed, Espresso, a 120 Raised Pilothouse model, was extended two feet to accommodate the dimensions of her high horsepower engines. Meanwhile, in accordance with the output of these big engines, hull structure, shafts, ventilation and other relative systems were modified and upgraded to insure safety when operating at high speed. During development, Horizon executed many tank tests at National Taiwan Cheng Gong University and used the results to modify the hull shape for optimum performance.
Espresso not only features a graceful appearance and safe, comfortable operation, but a remarkable interior as well created by the Dutch design firm Guido de Groot. The interiors have been made in whitewashed oak and zebrano wood for contrast. The design was first created in 3D for error free results. Paintings on the sliding doors are the work of a famous Dutch painter, Robert Vanderplas.
The yacht incorporates eight staterooms with ensuite heads and showers to accommodate twelve guests and six crews. The yacht also features a swimming pool, which can carry out jet skiing activities as well. The garage is more than 5.5 meters long, large enough for a Novurania EQ530 tender seating nine passengers. A hydraulic ladder on the port side eases access to the swim platform for swimmers and divers.
Customized to satisfy her owner’s demands, Espresso Megayacht is ready to travel safely to any destination over the horizon.
