Horizon E73 “Justus” Sea Trials with New Owner

1 January 2015

Horizon is pleased to welcome new members to our family, the owners of the Horizon E73 motoryacht Justus; they recently traveled to Kaohsiung from New Zealand for their sea trial, and they noted how impressed they are with the design, quality, and craftsmanship that have gone into their yacht. 

The owners worked closely with Horizon in personalizing Justus to fit their tastes as well as their boating requirements.  They chose Teak as the main wood and focused on lighter colored furniture and accents for an elegant contrast.  Horizon installed rolling blinds for the front windows of the skylounge, allowing the space to be flexible for private use, and the galley was designed to also accommodate a dining area for the owner and his family; an added bonus in the dining area is the storage space outfitted underneath the seating, which the owner pointed out showed Horizon’s attention to detail and consideration of owner’s needs.  

During the sea trial, the owner was pleased with how well Justus performed, cruising at 22 knots and reaching a 27-knot top speed with her CAT C32A 1600HP engines, and he tried his hand at the Third Station system, which made mooring a breeze.  The owner and his family are extremely satisfied with their new HORIZON yacht and are ready to begin their adventures on board Justus.  

The Horizon E73 motoryacht Justus will be delivered to the owners just before Christmas, making it, in the owner’s words, “the best Christmas gift ever.”  We wish the owners a wonderful holiday and many happy memories with their new Horizon E73!
