Horizon 56s

The Horizon 56’s is the cornerstone motor yacht of the Virgin Motor Yachts fleet and offers a fantastic value for bareboat charter.

The salon, lower helm position and fully stocked galley are cleverly blended into the same bright and comfortable area with wrap around views to enjoy the gorgeous scenery.  A few steps up, and through large glass slider is the spacious aft deck area for seated outside dining.  Stairs then lead to the fly bridge with dual helm seats which commands views and space making docking and handling the yacht very easy whilst cruising around from Island to Island.

Below are four full queen berths, all with full standing headroom.  There are also three heads and separate showers, two of which are en-suite. Air-conditioning throughout these yachts ensures every one aboard will be comfortable during their charter.

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.
