Horizon Power Catamarans wows with its “Showcase of Silence” at Palm Beach


Across the dock from the Horizon monohull display, Horizon Power Catamarans wow’d visitors during the four-day Palm Beach International Boat Show with an innovative “Showcase of Silence,” demonstrating the new Victron phosphate advanced power package system offering generator-free living onboard the first On-Deck Master PC68 and brand new PC60 and PC52 models.

The “Showcase of Silence” saw the global debut of the first PC68 with an On-Deck Master configuration alongside brand new PC60 and PC52 models. Demonstrating generator-free onboard comfort for up to 30 hours at anchor, the models on display were equipped with the builder’s now-standard advanced power package, which marries a Victron battery package with a Termodinamica variable speed air conditioning system.

Positioned at the head of the multi-hulled PowerCat (PC) range, the ultra-spacious Horizon PC68 model has been meticulously planned to meet and exceed the cruising needs of discerning boaters. Available in Open Salon or On-Deck Master configurations, the PC68 debuted its first Open Salon layout at the 2023 Palm Beach Show. This year the first On-Deck Master configuration PC68 was introduced to great acclaim.

The PC68 on display features a four-stateroom layout, with the aforementioned on-deck master commanding a prominent position with panoramic windows forward on the main deck. An enviable defining feature of this model is the unique Portuguese deck seating area on the upper deck, which features convertible Hi/Lo dinettes to allow for sun beds or dining as desired. The extended flybridge and boat deck comprise plentiful seating and lounging in an inviting and enclosed space with a large dinette and a dayhead with shower, while a BBQ station, chest freezer, and a bar with fridge doors and a Scotsman icemaker are positioned aft along with a 17ft tender.

Also on display, the latest Horizon PC60 showcased an on-deck master stateroom configuration, with three additional cabins comprised of an ensuite queen and twin cabin in the starboard hull and the master ensuite with dual wash basins and a convertible twin ensuite cabin in the port hull.

Rounding out the showcase was the latest PC52 model. As the smallest offering in the Horizon Power Catamaran range, the PC52 meets the needs of catamaran enthusiasts and curious monohull owners alike, with its spacious layout comprising three staterooms and a compact footprint allowing for superior comfort and speed for enjoyable island cruising. Built on spec, this PC52 drew great interest resulting in a signed sales contract after the show.

Defined by award-winning advanced composites SCRIMP system construction that yields the most durable, lightweight hull marrying a perfect glass-to-resin ratio, with rigorous testing by the Horizon shipyard’s pioneering Non-Destructive Methods, the Horizon Power Catamaran models are designed for quiet, stable, and efficient cruising. Silence and comfort are further enhanced through the Victron phospate battery package paired with a Termodinamica variable speed A/C system. Uniquely, the options for client customization extend well beyond soft goods and interior layout.

“We were delighted to introduce our latest models and demonstrate our commitment to silent, generator-free living during this year’s show,” says The Powercat Company Founder and CEO Richard Ford. “Offering an efficient and silent power package is the logical step for our next-generation power catamarans, and this Victron phosphate battery package allows you to run the entire boat, including air conditioning, refrigeration and freezers, for nearly 20 hours on batteries alone. This, coupled with other areas of energy savings, such as propane-fueled cooking, solar-powered systems and large alternators, goes a long way in mitigating energy consumption while making for an extremely comfortable and enjoyable cruising experience overall.”
