The Horizon PC52 Power Catamaran is the little brother of the highly acclaimed PC60. Horizon launched not one, but two versions of its 60-footer last year, and they’re following that pattern with the PC52, which will be available in open flybridge and skylounge versions.
Debuting at the inaugural Taiwan Boat Show in May 2014, the Horizon PC52 was designed by Stuart Hegerstrom and his team at The Powercat Company, who are also responsible for the PC60.

Like Horizon’s other motor yachts—both mono- and multi-hulls—the PC52’s hull, deck and superstructure are constructed using the company’s patented SCRIMP process, resulting in greater strength and resilience but at reduced weight. It’s available in a three-cabin layout with two master staterooms, or a two-cabin version with a VIP cabin forward and guest cabin aft. The aft galley features Corian countertops, four-burner electric range (with propane as an option), microwave oven, and full-height refrigerator with freezer. At the helm you’ll find a 15-inch touch-screen Garmin chartplotter, autopilot and radar with 24-mile range.
The flybridge area on both versions includes a bar area with hot and cold water and mini fridge. The PC52 will arrive stateside in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October, according to Horizon.
