Horizon PC60 Skylounge – Southern Boating Review

28 Apr 14

Recently our popular PC60 Power Catamaran was recognized by the highly regarded Southern Boating Magazine. After attending February’s Miami International Boat Show, Southern Boating joined Stuart Hegerstrom, founder/director of the Powercat Company, on the return home from Miami to Fort Lauderdale on board the new PC60 Skylounge. During the trip to Fort Lauderdale, Southern Boating had a chance to experience the thrill our PC60 power catamaran offers firsthand. The stability, efficiency, quality of build, and customization of the hull is only the beginning to why our powercats were in the forefront at the Miami International Boat Show. With the power catamaran market expanding, in reference to the PC60, Hegerstrom has stated “I did not want it to look like another boxy catamaran. Someone who’s spent this kind of money wants to feel that at least they’ve bought something that looks good.” Hegerstrom then continued with “The fit and finish are fully customizable, You’

Our Boats Review on Blue Horizon

28 Apr 14

Retired married couple and avid sailors, Alec and Barbara Hammond are the proud owners of Horizon Power Catamarans PC60 Hull #1 . The Hammonds are long time yachting enthusiasts and experienced sailors, so they were first in line when they heard about the new PC60. They recently wrote an article featured in the May edition of MBY Fleet’s, Our Boats 2014, sharing their experiences cruising the Bahamas aboard their PC60. For nine years the Hammonds ran two 68ft Horizon luxury power yachts as crewed charter yachts based in the BVIs. During that time, they became very familiar with the Caribbean Windward and Leeward islands. After many cruises in the Caribbean, one trip became what they now consider a jack-pot. The need to refuel both boat and crew required a chance stop in the Exumas, and by chance they discovered their favorite destination! Endless bays and white, secluded sand spits welcomed the Hammonds. No tourists bristling and rushing around the area, just pristine beaches.

This high-level electrical team is able to not only plan and design each yacht’s electrical system according to her owner’s demands, but also work within the thousands of construction details that are in place. All efforts during the manufacturing process are targeted towards one goal: providing our owners with the safe and comfortable yac
