Horizon Power Catamarans plans an exciting lineup for the 2023 Palm Beach International Boat Show, which will see the global debut of the company's first PC68 model at its display on Ramp 2, Slips 204-206.

Positioned at the head of the multi-hulled PowerCat (PC) range that includes a PC52, PC60 and much larger custom options, the new, ultraspacious Horizon PC68 model has been meticulously planned to meet and exceed the cruising needs of discerning boaters.

Multiple design innovations define the new PC68 model, which offers a four-stateroom layout with the option for an expansive open-plan salon or an on-deck master stateroom. While the On-Deck Master configuration offers a full-beam master with wraparound windows forward on the main deck, the debuting PC68 features an Open Salon layout, which offers an expansive salon area and a large seating and entertainment space on the main deck. This layout sees all four of the staterooms positioned off the salon, with two king ensuite staterooms forward in the hulls and two convertible twin-to-king ensuite cabins aft to port and starboard, respectively.

An expansive aft deck hints at the interior volume provided by the PC68's 24ft 6in beam, and features a regal hi-gloss table with dining for 10, a wet bar and the option for a 43in TV. The lounge seating looks aft to the Hi/Lo swim platform which is flanked by large wet lockers storing diving and snorkeling equipment.

Ease of access is prioritized throughout the design, and walkaround side decks on the main deck lead to a lounging space forward. A unique and enviable Portuguese deck seating area with convertible Hi/Lo dinettes is a new feature for this model, which allows either sun beds or dining under the stars.

The extended flybridge on this model allows for a variety of layout options while comfortably accommodating a 17ft, 100hp tender. The flybridge and boat deck comprise plentiful seating and lounging, a dayhead with shower, BBQ station, chest freezer, and a bar to port with fridge doors and a Scotsman icemaker. Forward of the helm, an innovative raised hatch and door accesses the Portuguese deck with three steps down to the foredeck.

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 PC68 is fitted with twin MAN 850hp engines as standard to guarantee quiet, stable and efficient cruise of 20 knots. Uniquely, the options for client customization extend well beyond soft goods and interior layout.

Showcasing alongside the brand new PC68 are two PC60 models, both with an On-Deck Master configuration.

The Powercat Company distinguishes itself from the competition with its build quality, after-sales service and options for customization, and Horizon Powercat clients are offered the choice of an open bridge or enclosed skylounge design upon which they can build their ideal layout.

"We are delighted to introduce our new PC68 model during this year's Palm Beach Boat Show," says The Powercat Company Founder and CEO Richard Ford. "Our new PC68 showcases our constant emphasis on innovation and efficiency as well as our meticulous attention to the needs of the power catamaran owner."
