Space and Grace
The Horizon PC58 made its world debut at the 2011 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and proved to be a great success story with several orders following its first appearance. This surprising 58-footer, part of Horizon’s new power catamaran series, has the volume of a boat twice its length and is easily handled by a couple of experienced boaters.
A mini-superyacht, this 58-foot catamaran certainly fits the bill for Alec and Barbara Hammond, a lively retired couple from the UK, who ordered hull No. One. “Space and grace. Those are two words that sum up our new boat,” said Alec Hammond when we met him aboard his new yacht.
The Hammonds have had larger yachts, but at this juncture in their life, they take pleasure in being hands-on and do not wish to have crew. They love to have family and friends visit and with its 24-foot, 6-inch beam, the boat feels enormous. The main deck features a generous main salon with a raised sofa, lounging area, a country-

The PC58 is an amazing power catamaran with raving industry reviews and it just got bigger and better. We have increased the waterline length to just over 60 feet to accommodate either a standard shaft drive or the ZF 4000 series POD drives at the owner’s option.
Shaft drives are the most common propulsion system for yachts and POD drives are the latest technological advance for yachts relatively new to the market. Our blog on POD drives discusses the features and benefits such as fuel efficiency and cruising speed of POD drives in detail.
The PC 60 now offers the choice of the original 3 cabin layout or a 4 cabin configuration. As with the PC58, the PC60 is available as an Open Flybridge or Enclosed Pilothouse. The first Enclosed Pilothouse PC60 will debut at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show , Australia in May 2013.
The PC60 is built with the same award winning design and technological processes as all Horizon boats using the patented SCRIMP (Seeman Composite Resin Infu

A Power for the Masses
Horizon's first mass-market multihull is a cat that monohull boaters can love. - By: Capt. Richard Theil
Alot of boaters do not like catamarans because their interi- ors spaces are too— well, cat-like. The typical cat scenario is an enormous full-beam saloon and tubular state- rooms in each of the narrow hulls. Horizon’s PC58 has the big saloon but she also has two staterooms that are as roomy as you’ll find on any comparably sized monohull, for the Masses plus a more typical third one.
The reason all this space can Horizon’s first Mass- exist is an innovative layout that begins with a master that is fully forward on the main deck. This not only allows for a much big- ger stateroom but also great views out of the expansive windshield. The master head does not intrude because it’s down and forward in the port hull. The after part of this hull, up to the port engine room bulkhead, is a separate two-berth stateroom and head that, to ensure pr
