Launched in 2002 and first commissioned in 2003, this Horizon 84 Yacht Fisher cleverly combines 25m of oceangoing luxury with a user-friendly fishing cockpit – there really is something for everyone on Christella.
Low-maintenance non-skid decks line the swimplatform and deep aft cockpit at the stern of this multi-level cruiser, but this nod to fishing functionality ends at the steps which ascend to the alfresco dining table – from here on it, it’s all undisputed elegance.
There’s teak underfoot around the high-gloss table and plush carpet lining the interior, along with attention to detail that continues to set Horizon’s boatbuilding yard apart.
Entering the saloon, you’re met with sumptuous leather lounges lining each wall in nautical-themed cream and blue which contrasts smartly with high-gloss cabinetry that is a hallmark of this yacht.
There’s a full wet bar and butler’s pantry lining the entrance to the saloon, ensuring refreshments are never far away. Broad picture windows add plenty of natural light, plus the opportunity to take in sea views at whatever pretty bay you’ve pulled up in.
This vessel sees the galley forward, where the chef will find a mix of Miele and Smeg appliances, plus a full-height Samsung fridge/freezer – all located opposite the formal dining table which seats eight guests.
READY FOR ANYTHING
The lower helm looks every part the ‘proper’ ship’s bridge with twin chairs, Simrad instrumentation, and an array of monitoring systems to ensure the captain can confidently pilot this big Horizon in any conditions.
At 25m length overall, this is a big motor yacht and there’s every chance Christella’s new owners will engage professional crew to ensure their asset is properly cared for. This job is made easier with a sliding helm door for rapid access (and unobscured vision) to the side decks while berthing.
An aft control station will further aid the task of bringing this Horizon safely alongside the dock, as will the handy Yacht Controller unit which remotely syncs thrusters and throttles as required.
With impressive ship-like systems, twin Onan generators, Naiad fin stabilisers, chilled-water tropical air-conditioning, and a fuel capacity of 7700L, this is a yacht that can really go places.
And go places you certainly will, with gear like that. Not to mention the Sea Recovery watermaker and 14-foot AB rigid inflatable with 50hp Mercury outboard.
This boat was never meant to be constrained by the confines of the Broadwater or even Australia’s maritime boundaries – get exploring!
Guests will be naturally drawn to the huge, swept-back flying bridge for open-air entertainment, and as a perfect location to watch the passage unfold.
A cockpit settee and teak tables make life comfortable, but the real attraction is the unobtrusive teak-clad bar in one corner, hiding three commercial-grade fridges.
At the end of the day, the extravagance continues belowdecks if you can tear yourself away from Christella’s outdoor attractions.
The full-beam master suite offers a desk and settee on either side of the large central bed, but there’s something special in the ensuite.
A full-sized bath runs across the yacht behind the bedhead, for the ultimate spot to unwind and a feature rarely seen in vessels this size.
Up forward, the VIP cabin employs multiple mirrored surfaces to appear much larger than its already generous proportions and four opening portlights guarantee natural airflow.
Midships there is third guest cabin with twin singles, plus a double bunk cabin, bringing the total berths to eight guests, plus two crew in the aft quarters – you’ll never be short of space on this Horizon.
Prospective buyers will need to search high and low to find any comparable vessel offering so much yacht with this outrageous level of finish for under the two million dollar mark. As such, Christella is certainly worth your consideration.
