Horizon Group launched their brand-new EP148 expedition superyacht into the Horizon Marina Testing field on Thursday, January 12th 2012. Under a surveyor watch, the yacht will complete a series of tests and classification sea trials that include a 6-day continuous cruise through the rough seas around Taiwan.

The EP148 is the largest private yacht built to-date in Asia; she is also the first steel yacht built by Horizon and the first superyacht built by Horizon with full BV Ice Classification.

She is the product of more than two years of extensive collaboration between MTD in Russia, who handled the hull form and structural design; Interior consultant Birgit Schannse of Germany; U.S. designer J.C. Espinosa and the Horizon R&D team. The EP148 features a 29’ beam, allowing for five comfortable staterooms, ten crew berths, a transom garage and forward bow davit for water toys. With a fully-displayed hull, the EP148 can cruise at a range of over 4,200 nautical miles at 9.5 knots.

The EP148 will be available for delivery in April of this year, and she will make her official debut at Horizon’s Open House in June in Taiwan.

Founded in 1987, Horizon is one of the world’s largest luxury motoryacht builders. Popular models ranging from 46 feet to 163 feet includes motoryachts, catamarans, expedition yachts, sportfishers, and solar-powered boats.
