Blount Completes Dinner Vessel

March 21, 2000

M/V Horizon, a 600-passenger dinner cruise vessel, was delivered to Pegasus Yacht Cruises of New York by Blount Industries. Measuring 161 ft., Horizon boasts a welded steel, single chine hull with three enclosed dining decks. All superstructure above the second deck is 100 percent aluminum construction. New Jersey-based Robinson Interiors designed Horizon with old world ambience in mind - its dining room features varnished cherry wood paneling and trim. The vessel is powered by two owner-supplied Detroit Diesel 16V-92 engines, soft mounted for silent operation with Lo-Rez vibration mounts and couplings. Electric engine controls by Mathers provide throttle and gear control, while a Murphy alarm panel monitors the propulsion engines. Twin 200 kW Detroit Diesel 6V-92 generators supply electrical power for the vessel's services via a split bus switchboard. A dedicated Detroit Diesel 4-71 engine provides power for a 125-hp, 22-in. diameter hydraulic bow thruster, while steering is achieved by an Autonav Electro-hydraulic steering package with duplicate hydraulic pumpsets. Two Rheem 18 kW water heaters provide 240 gallons of hot water to all the heads, bars, galley and other onboard services. An 80-ton Dunham-Bush Chiller, with a 60 kW boiler, provides the vessel's HVAC system. Length, (o.a): 161 ft. Beam, (o.a.): 40 ft. Depth: 11 ft. Design draft: 7 ft. Fuel oil: 9,500 gal.
