Reporting from the 2022 Palm Beach Boat Show, Elliott Maurice takes us on a tour of the Horizon PC60 powercat…
Powered by two 705hp Cummins diesels, the Horizon PC60 has an effective range of 400 miles at 18 knots and costs $3.5million.
The engines are housed separately, one in each hull, giving plenty of room around each engine to work – something that is particularly handy on a long distance cruiser that will spend a lot of time at sea.
Moving inside and the beauty of a powercat is that you end up with similar space to a 15ft longer monohull. They’re also very efficient through the water and very stable at anchor.

Powercats are ideally suited for island hopping around the Bahamas because you’ve also got a shallower draft as well as acres of space up front for relaxing in the sun.
What’s more, the flybridge was built for tropical climates, so you have a fully air conditioned Eisenglass enclosed bridge ahead of a lovely Corian worktop, barbecue, plenty of storage and a crane for launching your tender.
Enjoy the tour…
