The PC52 won the AIM MEDIA GROUP, EDITORS CHOICE AWARD for BEST MULTIHULL over 50ft, which includes all of the following magazines:
POWER & MOTORYACHT, PASSAGEMAKER, SOUNDINGS, YACHTS INTERNATIONAL, TRADE ONLY and BOAT QUEST.
The PC52 is a high quality ocean going catamaran, built entirely to satisfy our clients requests for a high quality catamaran in the 50′ range, Horizon are pleased to offer the new PC52, which is loosely based on the successful PC60 and is a welcome addition to the PC Series.
With her modern and clean chic lines, the PC52 could easily pass as an elegant motor yacht, as does the PC60.
Built using the patented SCRIMP resin infused system ensures a superior structure, both lighter and stronger than traditional build methods. The PC52 is built more towards semi-production to ensure attractive pricing, giving all serious cruisers the opportunity to enjoy Horizon Yachts International award winning quality.
The PC52 is specifically designed as a Blue Water Cruiser, developed from a proven and highly refined tank tested hull design – with optimum hull slenderness ratio and waterline / beam ratio. Although she may seem petite in comparison to the PC60, she still offers large deck and functional and modern interior accommodation, making her ideal for extended cruising or as a live-aboard with all the necessary amenities needed for extended cruising. She is easily driven and offers an efficient, soft, smooth, safe and comfortable ride at a cruise speed of 18 knots.
The PC52 is designed to appeal to the cruising yachtsman that has very specific cruising needs, and looking for certain key elements and features that the PC52 offers, namely:
The PC52′s elegant styling, by JC Espinosa, is neither simple nor complex, but rather a fusion of modern and chic, exuding confidence. The overall look and feel immediately gives one the sense that the PC52 is a highly refined and technologically advanced cruising yacht. Once again we have shown that elegance and rugged dependability are no longer a contradiction.
Naval architect and recognized multihull authority, Lavranos Marine Design of Auckland, New Zealand, developed highly refined hull designs from tank-test developments. The semi-displacement symmetric hulls are extremely efficient and ensure a soft smooth ride and excellent sea keeping. The yachts electrical and general systems are engineered by Horizon Yacht’s highly regarded in house engineers and naval architects.
The project’s concept, design criteria and specification was set by The Power Catamaran Company, which insists on a no compromise approach from design to delivery.
The 3-cabin owners layout has the entire starboard hull dedicated to the owner and includes a Queen size bed, large full height closets, vanity, privacy door and large en-suite bathroom with separate shower. The big hull side windows with integral opening portlights plus the overhead deck hatch ensure plenty of natural light and ventilation, limiting the use of the air conditioning while anchored off a beach or while at the dock.
The en-suite VIP cabin is forward in the port hull and has a Queen bed, plenty of storage closets and cupboards, large hull side windows and opening portlights plus overhead deck hatch offer plenty natural light and ventilation. The guest cabin, with two twin beds, is aft in the port hull and shares the VIP bathroom.
The galley and salon are on the main deck level and offer an open plan arrangement that flows and integrates beautifully. The galley offers a full height fridge with twin freezer drawers, a 4 plate cooktop, basin, convection microwave oven, bar area and ample storage space. The salon seating is very comfortable with two home-style sofas and coffee table. The desk area, adjacent to the salon, is a neat feature that gives the owners a dedicated office space for a laptop & printer or can be configured as a helm station if one cruises in colder climates. The desk chair swivels to double as a salon seat.
The aft deck is very well proportioned and offers comfortable lounging seating, dinning for up to 8, a bar counter with storage cabinets, fridge and ice maker. The side boarding doors make boarding the PC52 very comfortable and accessible to all.
The flybridge is accessed via stairs from the aft deck and offers a large area for entertaining and relaxing, with comfortable seating / dining for 6, a helm seat and a double seat next to the helm. The flybridge can be equipped with a basin, icemaker, fridge and there is a dedicated space for a BBQ. There is ample space for a 12ft tender and crane for the owners that cruise with a dingy.
The foredeck has two bow seats and large sunning beds. The anchor windlass is accessed via a flush deck hatch. There is additional storage via two deck hatches in the bow.
My wife and are proud owners of a PC 52’ Horizon Power Catamaran -the build quality, fit and finish of which has far surpassed our expectations (which were already high !)

Perhaps like you,we had visited many boat shows, crawled through engine rooms and bilges,read dozens of boat tests and now, having had two months to poke through every nook and cranny of our Horizon 52’, drive it through snotty conditions, live and entertain on it we are certain that it is unequalled on the market- in all respects.
It sounds glib but you really need to see this yacht (or its 60’ or 80’sisterships) to appreciate it. Prior to ordering it we had seen a sister-shipbut we took comfort from the fact that the Taiwanese builder – Horizon Yachts have built ___large motor yachts over the last __ years, making them the largest builder in Asia.
Value is often a misunderstood term but in the case of the Horizon PC 52’ we think that the value inherent in this fine yacht lies in just how much boat owners receive for the money.
For us, this can be summed up in terms of the quality of construction, S-P-A-C-E and custom modifications during the build process.
SPACE-wise there is a minimum of 6’_” of head-room in all living / entertaining areas. The salon and galley alone have ___ sf of space and there is___sf of space on the fly-bridge. In terms of storage space every boater wants more but not us. The PC52 has twice as much as we could want for extended cruising, including dry, lighted, below deck space for our large suitcases, bikes, inflatable kayaks, SUPs, 25 gallons of water and 10 cases of beer and wine !” You will not find this – even in much larger yachts.
Modification-wise we had some ideas that we thought would enhance the use of the space andwe were delighted with the factory’s willingness to re-design the layout of the fly-bridge (to add more seating) and add a dinette / workspace in the salon. Owners all have their own individual style and tastes and we were able to choose fabrics, floor, wall and ceiling material and accessories. The yacht is truly a reflection of us !
But it was the people at the Power Catamaran Company that made everything so special. Whether it was one of the company’s two founders with their wealth of knowledge and expertise or the talented interior designer – all were very professional and patient and guided us along the way. Nothing was too much to ask.
We are so glad that we made the purchase.
Horizon Power Catamarans are simply great yachts !
