Taiwanese builder Horizon recently delivered Hull No. 1 of its Vision 68 series to Seattle. Greg Marshall Designs—the same firm that styled Westport's 130—gave this 68-footer a more-than-20-foot beam, allowing her to accommodate four large staterooms (one aft that can be enlisted as a separate crew quarters) and an open main saloon. The 68 offers the option of an enclosed flying bridge, creating a skylounge with its own day head, settee, and helm station. A six-foot draft, twin 1,000-hp Caterpillar C18 diesels, and a 52-ton displacement are designed to create a solid and stable ride and a reported top speed of 23.6 mph. No surprise that Horizon is commissioned through Hull No. 7.
