Super yacht Espresso is a 38m yacht built by Horizon Yachts and styled by J.C. Espinosa. The superyacht promises to reach a speed of 26 knots as a result of the support of strong military-type MTU 3,650-hp engines and proper weight control of all the parts of the yacht. The double 16 cylinder engines can create a total of 7,300 hp and the on-board power generator of 88 hp.

Espresso, which was recently submitted to its owners, was the second craft from Horizon Elegance 120 Raised Pilothouse motor yacht. This 122-foot semi-custom yacht was modified to suit the need of the owner for greater speeds. The yacht was elongated by two feet to include high horsepower engines. The engineering team at Horizon Yachts also ensured that the weight of the equipments, decoration and structure of the yacht was under control. In fact, to have appropriate safety measures when the yacht is cruising at high speeds, hull structure, shafts, ventilation and other relative systems were also altered and improved.

Horizon Yachts, a popular name in the yachting fraternity, has been able to manufacture megayachts for its world-wide customers due to its strong skills, rich experience, hi-tech amenities and modern technology. Considering 38m Espresso, the company conducted several tank tests at National Taiwan Cheng Gong University which further benefitted them in changing the hull shape for its excellent performance.

Espresso is designed to have a stunning profile while offering its guest safety, luxury and better performance. The Dutch design firm Guido de Groot that was at the helm of interior designing used whitewashed oak and contrasting zebrano wood for most of the places. In addition to these, they made use of classic lighting arrangement to incorporate an urban, minimalist European design. All the rooms of the yacht are equipped with 3D technology to have an error-free arrangement.

Espresso flaunts eight staterooms with ensuite heads and showers. This includes the master stateroom beautifully positioned by Guido afore on the main deck. This split-level suite consists of an al-fresco design to have a sleeping area, study and elegant master bath. A VIP stateroom is designed on the lower deck with a port and starboard guest staterooms just behind it. Close to twelve guests and six crews can sleep in this yacht.

This 38m superyacht also boasts of a large and airy salon which gives way to a dining room amidships with a capacity to have 10 guests. The electric sliding doors at the front bulkhead give access to the galley on port and the master suite on starboard. These sliding doors display painting made by the famous Dutch painter, Robert Vanderplas who had done his work while the yacht was underway at the yard. What highlights his work is the natural light that enters the area through the large windows adorning the salon and dining room.
The galley in Espresso is designed to connect with crew cabins on the lower deck. Thus it gives the crew access to their rooms using a side door from the galley so that they avoid using public spaces. Their accommodation consists of one captain’s cabin and two symmetrical crew cabins.

This Horizon yacht also includes the high-low swimming platform which can stay one meter below waterline to allow opening the garage door and launching the tender. Besides, the regular equipments, this swimming pool can store a Jet ski too. Its over 5.5 meters long garage can also accommodate a Novurania EQ530 tender seating nine passengers. The divers and swimmers can use a hydraulic ladder on the port side to reach the swim platform.

The engine room of Espresso also features Onan 80kW 380v/3phase/50hz generators besides the two MTU 16V4000M90 engines. Moreover, there are fewer disturbances caused to the cabin areas due to the extensive sound insulation panels which keep a check on noise and vibration. To provide the guest with the best services, a workshop and an additional crew cabin has been built aft of the engine room.

Horizon Yachts established in 1970 was a family-owned and operated company. Presently this Bremen-based company is controlled by Claudia and Albert Drettmann. A name associated with the highest standards and quality in the international yachting circle, Horizon Yachts have a team of 100 people and flaunts five brands of Elegance, Elegance Open, Premier, Bandido and Vision Yachts.

Espresso displays a stunning profile which includes stylish exteriors and interiors, a well structured layout and best sea-faring experience. Ensuring safety for its guests, the superyacht has graceful designs that might grab everyone’s attention. The Drettmann initially showcased Espresso at the 2010 Boot Dusseldorf yacht show.
