Horizon 38 the new aluminium motoryacht designed by Leonardo Cecchi

Horizon 38 is a 38m aluminium motoryacht ready for production; it is the result of the collaboration between the designers Leonardo Cecchi, ArDeMo Yacht&Design Firenze, and Andrea Minerva, assisted by Eng. Giovanni D’Aloia for the engineering part and by Sandro Marcucci, CNE, for development.

Horizon 38, functionality and aesthetics

This project was carried out by combining functionality and aesthetics, taking inspiration from the modern explorer yacht and the classic navetta. Horizon 38 revolves around the concepts of liveability and brightness, while still guaranteeing privacy and common areas to all the guests.

Close relationship between interior and exterior

The distinctive feature of this project is definitely the close relationship between the interior and the exterior spaces, given by the large windows on the upper deck and main deck, through which the designers have tried to transform  each external level into a terrace on the sea, maintaining a direct relationship between the naval architecture and the interior spaces. An example of this is the owner cabin located on the aft of the upper deck, where the large side windows provide a light source throughout the area and the full-width stern door allows access to the private terrace in direct connection with the interior of the cabin.

Horizon 38, a main deck to live in freedom

The main deck is a deck dedicated to conviviality, with large openable windows on the sides and the stern, which connect the external cockpit and the aft pool with the internal salon, turning it into a veranda on the water. The light and the convertibility of the interior furniture give to this area many possibilities of use according to need, always in close contact with the surrounding environment.

Guests cabins on the lower deck

The lower deck is entirely dedicated to the 4 cabins, 2 mirror vip and 2 mirror guest, arranged in such a way as to guarantee maximum space and comfort to the guests. All the crew areas and the wheelhouse are moved to the bow of the boat and are accessible by separate pathways to ensure total privacy to the guests; the captain cabin is located on the upper deck, next to the wheelhouse, the kitchen on the main deck for easy access to common areas and the crew cabins at the bow of the lower deck.

Horizon 38, interiors inspired by the sea

The interior materials, chosen for their lightness and color, recall the marine world and are a fundamental vehicle to emphasize the connection between interior and exterior: aluminium for the structural parts, natural teak on the exterior that continues on the interior of the yacht and white lacquered for walls and ceiling. Leather and technical fabric coverings are spaced out by teak and marble inserts to balance the areas giving a touch of formal lightness and prestige.

Privacy-focused exteriors

The external areas reinforce the key concepts of the interior layout with separate pathways between crew and guests and large common areas. Two large sunpads have been placed forward, on the area above the tender garage, accessible from the crew side, while in the stern area the folding sides give to the boat a beach area that in the open position merges with the sea.
The access to the engine room is guaranteed through the large stern door. Depending on the needs it is possible to use the transom as an external garage for jet ski and toys.
