Launch of New PC60 Power Catamaran PTOLEMY

Horizon Power Catamarans is pleased to announce the launch of the new PC60 power catamaran, PTOLEMY. Her owners, who have built many previous Horizon vessels, including the first PC60 “Blue Horizon,” ventured with Horizon Group CEO John Lu and his wife, along with Horizon USA Preferred Partner, Richard Ford of the Power Catamaran Company, for sea trial and launch celebration at the Horizon City Marina.


“We are very excited to launch a second PC60 power catamaran for these experienced owners and friends,” said Lu. “We know PTOLEMY will see just as many Bahamas adventures as her predecessor, and we wish the owners a wonderful time making new memories on their Horizon!”

ptolemyAlec and Barbara Hammond spent the past four years cruising “Blue Horizon” in Bahamas waters and made the decision to move into another PC60 customized a bit more to suit their newly-retired status. Optimum entertainment for their guests is top of their list, so they opted for a four stateroom layout. The spacious main deck, in addition to featuring a large salon, open kitchen and bar area, also includes the on-deck ensuite Master stateroom. Below deck are three staterooms – a starboard hull ensuite VIP and twin guest stateroom with a private head, and a port twin guest stateroom with a private head.

Moving up top, the open bridge incorporates an L-shaped dinette and riding seat to starboard, wet bar to port and plenty of room to spare for a tender on the boat deck. A classy feature on the wet bar is a blue glass design, which can be illuminated at night to provide a nice glow up top.Taiwan Excellence Gold Award Equipped with twin Cummins 705 HP engine, PTOLEMY reaches a top speed of 22 knots and cruises at 18 knots.
