The Horizon 48 motor yachts were specifically designed and built for Virgin Motor Yachts to offer our clients a comfortable and economical yacht for bareboat charter.
The salon, lower helm position and galley are cleverly blended into the same bright and comfortable area with wrap around views to enjoy the gorgeous scenery which leads to a spacious aft deck area for seated outside dining. Stairs then lead to the fly bridge which commands views and space making docking and handling the yacht very easy whilst cruising around from Island to Island.
The Horizon 48’s provide three full queen berths with en-suite heads, all with separate showers. Air-conditioning throughout these yachts ensures every one aboard will be comfortable during their charter with plenty of storage throughout.
Once at your chosen destination, a full width swim platform, accessed from the aft deck by a sweeping ‘sea stair’ makes for easy boarding of the dinghy, or going for a swim.
Please note: deep see fishing is not permitted on any of our charter yachts, only recreational fishing which must be accompanied by a license.
Before leaving with your power catamaran, our operations team with complete a comprehensive systems briefing as well as a full navigational chart briefing to ensure you are comfortable and competent with the vessel.
