Project: CRESCENT 145
Yacht Name: MUCHOS MAS

In this project, JQB Ltd has shaped a dramatic exterior profile offering both contemporary style and disciplined proportions for timeless appeal. Working with a proven hull form by Jack Sarin, Jonathan has developed an interior arrangement that's as functional and spacious as it is innovative, and offers strictly deluxe accommodations for ten in an environment exceptionally well-suited for private enjoyment and charter service.
Large windows in the salon and sky lounge open social areas to daylight and to a panoramic view of the passing scenery. The Crescent 145's interior arrangement offers a wide range of customizing options, including an innovative main-deck layout that features a full-service bar aft of the salon, where it's encircled by view windows and positioned to provide convenient service to guests inside and on the aft deck. Among other attributes are an on-deck master suite with an office positioned outboard for yet another spectacular view, up to four guest suites on the lower deck, skylounge with full-service bar and a spacious sun deck with hot tub and barbecue. A large transom door transforms the swim platform into a portable beach and base for fishing, diving and enjoying water toys.
Exterior deck areas have been designed for a variety of uses, from elegant entertaining to sunning and enjoying the view. The sun bridge deck includes a large jetted tub with waterfall fill and adjacent service bar with barbecue for casual relaxation and entertaining, and a composite hardtop creating a just-right balance of sun and shade.
Lower-deck accommodations include two VIP and two guest suites, with direct access from adjacent crew quarters to allow efficient room make-up. Equally thoughtful details abound throughout this innovative yacht, and include a main-level bar serving guests in the salon and on the aft deck, a day head just off the swim step for the convenience of swimmers, and an intimate seating/sunning area on the foredeck with a hot tub, second of two onboard.
Copious large yacht features ingeniously fitted within a manageable owner/operator framework – this is the cornerstone of the new Horizon V67 motoryacht model. The V67 has been planned throughout with spacious accommodations, wide side decks, and a voluminous interior on a 19’6” that takes advantage of large windows in the main deck and cabins. She offers a flexible three or four stateroom layout, with optional crew quarters aft, as well as various configurations for all three decks including open and enclosed bridge. The V67’s plumb bow design – a striking feature from Stimson Yachts’ hull design – allows for a longer waterline and reduces drag at lower, displacement speeds; the larger hull beam also makes for greater stability when it counts most. Ideal for first or second-time buyers, families and owner/operators, the Horizon V67 luxury motoryacht provides the qualities of a superyacht – safety, solid architecture, and customization – all in under 70 feet.
