While the majority of yachts in use today are full motoryachts, the benefits of a cockpit are fast becoming recognized as offering tremendous flexibility in use and increasing the overall user friendliness of the yacht. The cockpit offers many alluring attributes such as safe and easy access to the vessel from docks and dinghy’s, convenient handling of dinghies coming and going from the boat, easy engine room and crew access; space for fishing and watersports; increased storage, and a stunning profile. With those in mind, Horizon began constructing a V80, designed specifically for the U.S. West Coast that incorporates the needs of our local boaters.
With a 20’6″ beam, the V series allows for an interior design that makes it feel like a much larger vessel. Combining natural lighting via oversize windows, a single level main deck, and 4 en-suite staterooms — plus separate crew quarters – you have the makings of an incredible yacht. The staterooms were designed to create an open and light feel with the full beam master amid-ship, his and her sinks, a walk in closet, California King Bed and oversize shower. Complimented by a VIP as well as twin port and starboard staterooms, the V80 ensures your guests the ultimate in luxurious living.
A walk up bar with a refrigerator, ice maker and wine cooler is located in the salon. The Salon was designed for entertaining as well as just relaxing to read or watch a movie on the 55” TV. The salon was designed to comfortably sit 8 to 10. For privacy away from the galley, there is a partition that rises between the salon and galley, allowing the galley to be utilized without interfering with the gatherings in the salon. The fully-equipped galley accommodates plenty of storage and counter space and features high quality appliances as well as easy access to the side deck via the port and starboard wing doors. These doors can be opened for a natural flow of air throughout the main deck.
A general rule in design is if you sleep eight, you should accommodate eight for dining; not only does the V80 follow this rule; she exceeds it. She has three area’s where eight can dine. The formal dining, the aft deck provides comfortable dining for eight and a more relaxed, alfresco-style dining, the foredeck seating and table provides another entertaining/dining area; the flybridge and boat deck can be utilized for a more intimate setting, and the enclosed skylounge offers an amazing panoramic view of your surroundings.
The cockpit creates a very versatile area, and in conjunction with the aft deck, makes it the perfect location to relax while at anchor and watch the water sports activities or fishing. A hydraulic swim platform enables you to carry a jet ski in addition to a tender on the boat deck, and when partially submerged, you can keep the removable rails for your own little spa deck. Horizon has also accommodated a day head on main deck that is accessed from the aft deck, so Custom ordered this V80 features an enclosed bridge that ensures comfortable, quiet cruising. Equipped with the very latest in marine electronics she is set up to handle every wish the owner or skipper has.
Just aft of the enclosed bridge is the boat deck. A full sit down bar is the perfect location for an afternoon lunch or a glass of wine before dinner. The bar is equipped with a large BBQ. The boat deck will handle a very large dinghy and when the dinghy is in the water there is a large area for sun chairs.
The new foredeck design provides not only seating but also a sun pad for enjoying those lazy days at anchor, with the cool breezes coming in from the ocean. We are also sure this will be one of your favorite places to sit and enjoy the sunset.
A twin bed crew cabin can be accessed either from the cockpit deck or via the internal staircase in the salon; this means the crew can enter the engine room without disturbing the guests on the aft deck or salon, and also allows safe engine room checks to be done while at sea.
This V80 is here in Newport Beach for your inspection – she is a 2015 model and is a fully-loaded vessel with Furuno electronics, water maker, a custom interior and a full custom AV system. Equipped with CAT C32 1622HP engines, the V80 reached a top speed of 25+ knots; she features ABT zero speed stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, and everything needed to cruise anywhere from Alaska to the Caribbean.
On a final note; while most vessel showings and viewings are completed during the day, we invite you to take time to visit the V80 at night. She has a custom interior and exterior lighting package with full LEDS, under water lights and some very creative lighting to enhance the space and create a natural, warm ambiance that carries from day to night.
