The flybridge deck features a bar and BBQ area with four stools, a built in U shaped settee wrapping around a pair of tables, a sun pad and the helm station for the owner and guests who enjoy cruising in the sunshine.
The accommodations below deck include a full beam master cabin located amidships with a walk in closet, en suite facilities, private lounge area and vanity. Two guest cabins, each with a private en suite, are located between the master and the equally spacious VIP cabin forward.
ENCORE has been designed for owners who enjoy cruising with the assistance of a professional crew. A compact crew lounge and two private cabins are located aft and are accessible from the stern or via the stairs from the saloon.
MAIN SALOON / DINING / GALLEY
A well-appointed starboard side entertainment area shows off the exquisite joinery for which Horizon is known. Adjacent to the saloon is a separate dining saloon that seats up to eight people. Forward, the country kitchen is ergonomically designed and equipped to support the most ambitious culinary activities. Wrap around windows overlook the foredeck, bringing ample light and spectacular views to the galley and the adjacent casual dining area. Port and starboard doors provide access here to the side decks.
The raised Pilothouse can be reached by either the stairs up from the galley or down from the flybridge. The helm console is equipped with three large navigation screens and navigation chart area. A small settee on the port side creates a cozy conversation and viewing area.
On the upper deck, the extended deck area provides ample space for storage of the 14ft Nautica RIB along with a heated fresh water spa. The finishes are second to none as is common with all Horizon builds.
An additional modification is the newly designed bow seating area fitted with cushions, a table and an umbrella. Alternatively, the table can be converted into another sunbed.
Outside the aft deck has a large table with lounge area and seating opposite. The swim platform hydraulically lowers to launch and retrieve the jetski or for swimming and diving activities. The large aft door opens to the well-appointed lazarette with all the fishing and diving equipment.
STERN WET AREA / GARAGE
One of the many design changes on encore includes the addition of a full wet area garage at the stern to store swimming, fishing and diving equipment. The large opening stern door rises to full height to provide easy access to all equipment. The swim platform submerges to allow the PWC float on float off.
