Not all boats are treated equally. That is very obvious when you visit Blue Horizon. After seeing the similar yachts on the market you will immediately see the upgrades and and care given Blue Horizon by this Owner. These owners were first time cruisers when they purchased Blue Horizon. They have found that cruising in comfort in a well cared for yacht that does not break down has provided them with amazing adventures and experiences. Their cruising group is growing and they find it necessary to buy a larger yacht. They are living the dream. You can as well. Your family deserves to have the ultimate in carefree cruising adventures.
Having four staterooms plus a crew stateroom is rare in a 65' yacht.
Also included is the 13.5 Z3 Zartender dinghy with 70 H Yamaha outboard. She’s been tricked out for people who like water sports. Seating 7 people its deep V design Zartender has the smoothest ride in its class allowing the Captain to deliver 3 couples to shore in one trip! She has Garnin electronics and a ladder that is civilized. We have added a hand rail over the wind screen which makes the entry onto the dinghy much more user friendly. She also has a Bimini top and Sunbrella storage cover.
The current owner has modified or added amenities to allow for 6-8 weeks of travel before any major provisioning would be required and to add comforts that are especially enjoyable while cruising:
-Three icemakers each with its own Reverse Osmosis water filtration/drinking water system
-Additional freezer space
-Dinghy lift that acts as an extended swim, dive, or boarding platform. This drastically reduces the time required to launch the dinghy upon arrival at an anchorage AND drastically increases the entertaining deck space on the flybridge!
-120 quart cooler on the flybridge that adds considerable support to the flybridge refrigerator, entertaining convenience, and massive storage for cold drinks. With one of the three icemakers in the adjacent custom-built cabinet, the cooler has an endless supply of ice! The cooler also has a custom-built seat cushion with room for two people.
-Additional seating custom-built on the flybridge and in the main salon provides more space to stretch out for you and your guests.
-Custom-built flybridge hardtop that extends over the forward seating area and helm, cooking/sink cabinet, drink service area, and aft cabinet making the all important shade as big as possible while leaving a "sundeck" area available on the flybridge as well.
-Custom-built, see-through side shades/canvas for both flybridge and aft deck reduce afternoon/evening heat by 30%!
-Custom windshield covers reduce heat in both interior and flybridge seating areas.
-Custom-built exterior cushions that provide more comfort and better viewing than the originals.
-Ongoing replacement or replating of any item that shows wear, discoloration, or corrosion. So far, the windlass drum, entry door handle and lock, interior door plates and handles, hinge covers, and switch plates have all been completely restored, replated, or replaced with new.
-Custom-built dining table cover to prevent damage to the most-used table surface on the boat!
-Custom-built and -designed electronics at both Pilot House and Flybridge helm positions making Navigation and vessel operation quick, simple, and as automated as possible. All outdoor engine, windlass, and dash switches have been replaced and have new waterproof covers.
-Meticulous maintenance on comfort and mechanical items to ensure proper operation and no down time. Engines, generators, batteries, air conditioning, refrigeration, pumps, heads, thrusters, stabilizers, water maker, cablemasters, and other systems are kept in reliable operating condition.
The aft deck is always the best start to the tour. It is usually the most used space on any yacht. Coffee in the morning or dining in the evening. The aft deck accommodates your family quite well. The large teak table and spacious seating is more than ample. Access to the swim platform is simple from the aft deck. A stairway to port going up allows access to the flybridge.
Forward through the large door is the main salon. Again, seating is ample, bright and very homey. The high gloss woodwork in the main salon and throughout the entire yacht create a "yachty" elegant feel. The large windows bring in plenty of outside light and offer great scenery.
Forward of the salon is the galley to starboard and a dining table with ample seating to port. Forward of the galley is lower helm station.
Moving forward and down several steps allows access to the VIP stateroom, guest stateroom and the master suite.

Air conditioning vents have been re-ducted for better air flow and comfort. LED and accent lighting together with illuminated art work make this salon truly beautiful. There is a 42" flat screen SAT TV to port on an electric lift. The cabinet work in the salon is outstanding and provides generous storage. Aft is a stainless sliding door with screens leading to the spacious aft deck. The primary audio system is Bose (not Sony) offering 3 seperate stereo fields each with seperate remotes controling sorround sound for Salon, stereo for aft deck, and front and rear stereo for Flybridge each field with its own power amps. A separate stereo (radio style) with stereo speakers featuring blue tooth, aux in, FM/AM is also located at upper helm, as a convenient way to play MP-3, Phone or other electronic gadgets.
