BVI Power catamaran Blue Horizon is a 2011 Horizon PC 60. Well, they are appointed with space similar to a much larger yacht. Her sleek, modern, clean lines are impressive at anchor or at the dock.
I had the pleasure of cruising on the BVI Power Catamaran BLUE HORIZON from Tortola to St. Thomas. It was a very smooth, comfortable experience. We cruised at 10 knots in light seas while enjoying the air-conditioned flybridge with 360-degree views.
The salon, bar, and gourmet galley integrate seamlessly and form a large and comfortable area for entertaining. The galley has proportions and amenities equal to that of a luxury apartment. At the same time, the large salon offers exceptionally comfortable seating and unobstructed views through the large side windows and aft salon sliding doors. The internal stairs to access the flybridge from the salon are an excellent feature and provide easy access to the helm while cruising.
With a beautiful teak deck, the cockpit is spectacularly large and offers combined seating plus dining for as many as 14 in comfort. The aft deck has a sizeable sofa-style seating with side counters for drinks and snacks. The large solid wood cockpit table is beautifully handcrafted and seats 8 in comfort. Access to the flybridge is via wide, comfortable stairs.
The flybridge is a large area to entertain and relax. Six people can dine in comfort. There is a well-designed bar with bar stools, a built-in BBQ, basin, fridge/icemaker, plus plenty of storage. The aft section of the flybridge houses the dinghy crane and sufficient space for a 13ft tender. The helm consul has a fold-down glass screen to protect the instruments from the elements. The twin helm seats complete this wonderful area.
The BVI power catamaran Blue Horizon features a lavish on-deck master stateroom with a full walk-around King bed, gourmet galley, and spacious salon, ensuring ultimate comfort.
Blue Horizon can accommodate six guests in 3 cabins. The Master cabin has a king-size bed, shower, and toilet. A VIP cabin has a queen-size bed, shower, and toilet. A Guest cabin has two twin beds that can convert to a king, shower, and toilet. Blue Horizon is fully air-conditioned throughout, with individual room controls.
