Got a chance to sea-trial the Horizon 3000 power catamaran by Eastward Boats. The builder, David East, is an alumnus of Florida Sportsman, having served as a staff boating editor and host of television projects for a number of years. His newest boat, built in St. Lucie County, FL, starts from a proven mold
developed around a 30-foot cat widely used in Australia. Powered with twin Evinrude 250 G2s, the Horizon 3000 delivered 1.8 mpg at 33 mph, with a top end over 50 mph—very impressive for a boat this size. More impressive yet: A single 250, from a dead stop, brought the boat surprisingly quick to plane—and comfortably topped 40 mph!
