The HORIZON 3000 original design comes from Australia where catamaran style hulls dominate the saltwater boat market due to the rough conditions. Available in four configurations, center console or cuddy cabins, they have a model that will fit your lifestyle.

The hull design incorporates a high bow that can cruise at displacement speed into a steep head sea, something that other cats don’t do very well. The tunnel is also rounded for superior strength and softer landings, when compared to catamarans that have squared off tunnels. This also eliminates stress cracks in the tunnel. The hull measures 30 feet, 3 inches in length and with a 9 foot, 3 inch beam, it’s easy to trailer.

The HORIZON 3000 performance test results, powered with a pair of Evinrude G2 250s:

WOT 5800 RPM – 55 MPH

Cruise 3250 RPM – 33 MPH – 2.3 MPG

Single engine operation 5100 RPM – 36 MPH – 1.7 MPG

Each model is constructed with exceptional attention to every detail, something that you can only get from a boat manufacturer that builds each boat one at a time, custom rigged, to the owner’s specifications. All composite construction, tined wiring, heat-shrunk terminals and S.S. hardware are just a few of the features that allow these boats to stand up to a harsh saltwater environment.

Dave East, Eastward’s owner and president, has over 26 years’ experience in boat manufacturing and most recently was the Boating Editor for a major fishing publication and host of a TV series which helped consumers choose their Best Boat. He has returned to boat manufacturing with the unique opportunity to have an in-depth knowledge of boat building combined with personal, hands-on, test results of power catamarans from the majority of manufacturers in the industry. These new boats are a culmination of that experience to offer the very best quality of construction, ride and function.

Experience the difference between just buying a boat as opposed to having one custom built for you. See www.eastwardboats.com to learn more.
