The 2022 Horizon Yachts E81, Valiant, is listed with OneWater Yacht Group and it just saw a $590,000 price drop. The new asking price is $4.99 million. This cruise-ready, family-size skylounge motor yacht has a three-stateroom, three-head layout, an office, a day head and low hours on its Caterpillar diesels.
Stepping into the cockpit guests will immediately notice the alfresco dining space. There’s seating for up to eight with a three-person sofa set against the transom, a fixed table and loose chairs.
Stairs to port lead to the 81-footer’s skylounge. The outdoor space aft has real estate to stow a tender. This vessel’s tender is a 2021 Walker Bay Venture 14 Dinghy with a 70 hp Yamaha outboard, and it’s included with the sale. There is also a grill, a wet bar, an L-shaped settee and two lounge chairs. The skylounge is accessed via a glass door. A three-person bar with fixed stools and a fold-down flat-screen TV are to port with a C-shaped booth with a table directly across. The two-seat helm station is forward and to starboard and has clean sightlines.
Sliding glass doors off the cockpit lead to an open-plan salon. Seating in the salon includes a U-shaped settee and coffee table to starboard and two lounge chairs to port, creating a comfortable spot for casual conversation. All the way forward is an open country galley. There are unobstructed views from the sliding glass doors through to the country galley.
The galley is equipped with a Sub-Zero 424 wine cooler, a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and Jenn-Air appliances, including a refrigerator, electric cooktop and a microwave/convection oven, everything a cruising family needs for prepping meals large and small. A U-shaped dinette with glass table is forward and there are a pair of stools for overflow at the galley’s countertop.
The Horizon E81’s three staterooms and office are all belowdecks. The owners’ stateroom is amidships with a king-size berth and an en suite head, which has an inlaid porcelain sink, marble countertops and backsplashes, and marble soles in all the heads and shower rooms. The forepeak VIP has a centerline queen berth and an en suite head. There is a starboard guest stateroom with twin berths and an en suite head. The office space is to port and forward of the master stateroom.
Wide teak side decks with high bulwarks safely transit guests from the cockpit to the foredeck, which has a U-shaped settee and fixed table abaft a two-person sun pad with a backrest. If it gets too hot, simply pull the sun shade out. This space offers a quiet getaway from noise at the quay.
Twin 1,700 hp Caterpillar C32 diesels provide power for Valiant, giving it a reported 26-knot top hop. At a reported 21-knot cruising speed, the big diesels burn 140 gallons per hour. Dial back the throttles to a displacement cruising speed of 10 knots, and fuel burn falls off precipitously to a miserly 28 gallons per hour. At 10 knots, range is about 707 nautical miles when considering a 10 percent reserve on the E81’s 2,200-gallon fuel capacity. At cruise speed, range is about 297 nautical miles.
Built for extended open-water cruising, the Horizon Yachts E81 is constructed via the SCRIMP infusion process with high-density foam core for the bottom, topsides and engine stringers. All of the yacht’s interior structural components are bonded to the hull. The end result is a stout, bluewater build without excessive weight that enhances overall performance.
Valiant comes with a full Garmin suite of navigation electronics, including three GPSMAP 8622 22-inch Glass Bridge MFDs with g3 Charts, two SD Card Readers, an HDMI Cable for GPSMAP to display on TV’s, a GSD 25 Premium Sonar Module, a Chirp-M, a Bronze LP 12 tilt, GMR Fantom 126 radar with 6-foot Array, a GMR 24 xHD 4KW, a 24-inch closed dome, autopilot and more.
Other notable features on board Valiant include a GOST Apparition Security monitoring and surveillance package, two 29 kW/60 Hz Onan generators and a hydraulic swim platform.
