74′ HORIZON YACHT SHAKINA
YACHTSMEN INTERNATIONAL is proud to present this2013 74’ HORIZON V74 SKYLOUNGE MOTOR YACHT, custom built with every conceivable option, ready for immediate delivery ex Whitsunday’s.
This immaculate V74 boasts huge volume having a semi-displacement hull and LOA of 73′ 8″ and a wide beam of 20′ 6″. She is powered by dual 1,100HP MAN V10 shaft drive diesels [349hrs] offering excellent economy and sprint performance. Combining Greg Marshall’s super-efficient hull design technology and a 5,754 litre fuel capacity makes this vessel capable of long range, high speed, blue water cruising. The perfect formula to reach those far away destinations. High quality is evident throughout the interior with impeccable & timeless satin finish Walnut & oak timber finishes, luxurious leathers, European appliances and entertainment systems.
The Horizon V74 built to exceed the DNV Classification, it offers lightweight and extraordinary strength & roominess throughout, which some compare to a normal 85 ft. Motor Yacht. Three staterooms with ensuite heads, plus crew quarters (or teenager’s escape) makes that comparison a reality. The main deck is completely open from the spacious forward galley, to the centralised formal dining, to the comfortable saloon lounge & wet bar that opens onto the aft deck via large bifold sliding stainless steel doors.
Large windows, unique portlights, and a skylight over the saloon adds a flood of natural lighting to the interior. Aircraft like pilothouse doors port & starboard not only pump tremendous sea breezes through the main deck but also give you easy access to the generous walkaround decks & bow sun-pad [perfect spot for sunset drinks!!] Interior and exterior stairs lead up to the enclosed skylounge helm area with day head, making your way outside into the elements is a very generous sized boat deck which can comfortably fit a tender & jet ski or in this case a large 4.6m Custom Swift RIB with 90hp Suzuki outboard. A custom Southern Stainless teppanyaki style BBQ is integrated into this area along with loads of storage space & flush sink with hot & cold faucet & refrigeration.
This 74′ HORIZON V74 MOTOR YACHT is the ultimate owner operated vessel & also boasts exceptional sound insulation so that, while running at cruise, the slight, distant hum of engine power even in the owner’s full-beam stateroom, adds to the impression of voyaging, without excessive noise or vibration. At anchor, this feature is emphasised immensely, where no water (Hull slapping noise) will ever torment those light sleepers.
M/Y Shakina is simply the latest model, best equipped & maintained Horizon V74 Skylounge Motor Yacht in existence! All the systems have been fine-tuned for Australian cruising & beyond.
