Horizon Yachts said a new Horizon V80 cockpit skylounge motoryacht will debut at the May 14-17 Newport Beach (Calif.) Boat Show.

The yacht will be on display with Horizon Preferred Partners Orange Coast Yachts.

“As the first Horizon V80 motoryacht in the U.S., she has been intricately designed for the market, specifically for West Coast, and we know her high quality, interior fit and finish and design features will appeal to boaters from all regions,” Horizon Group CEO John Lu said in a statement.

The skylounge Horizon V80 features a four-stateroom en suite layout below deck, with a king master stateroom, queen VIP stateroom and two twin guest staterooms. Dining for eight is offered in three locations — the main deck dining area, aft deck dinette and a forward seating and dinette area — and the V80 provides a total of five entertaining areas, including a sit-down bar and barbecue on the flybridge, as well as seating and lounging area on the foredeck.

The V80 cockpit and accompanying hydraulic swim platform are functional for watersports, handling dinghies and entering and leaving the yacht.

Equipped with CAT C32A 1,622-hp engines, the V80 reaches a top speed of as much as 25 knots and cruises at 20 to 21 knots Horizon said.
