The first hull in the Horizon FD 85 series has been launched and is ready for delivery to her new owner, the Taiwan-based yard has confirmed.
The FD 85 is the first model in Horizon Yachts’ new fast displacement range and features a broad 7.07 metre beam, resulting in 25% more internal volume than most yachts in this class.
Accommodation is for ten guests split across a main-deck master stateroom, two double cabins and a further two twin rooms, all of which are en-suite. The crew quarters are located in a separate area just forward of the engine room, allowing accommodation for a staff of up to three.
Hull number one features floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the main saloon and formal dining room to maximise the amount of natural light in this area. The flybridge is reached by a pair of external staircases, giving access to the upper deck superyacht spa pool and raised pilothouse.
Tender storage is via the aft bathing platform, and there is also a davit crane on the upper deck for storing a Jetski or other superyacht water toys.
Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar C18 engines for a total output of 2,272hp and a top speed of 16 knots. However, when trimmed back to ten knots, the Horizon FD85 will have a maximum cruising range of 1,670 nautical miles, thanks to a total fuel capacity of 10,200 litres.
In a statement, Cor D. Rover added that plans for a smaller sister model called the Horizon FD65 are already under development.
