Inside the latest "charter-ready" FD80 from Horizon Yachts

26 April 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Taiwanese shipyard Horizon Yachts has offered a look inside its twelfth FD80 model, designed by long-standing collaborator Cor D. Rover.

The 24.6-metre has a "versatile layout" that can cater to both private and charter use, having been built to meet Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) 2C inspection requirements.

The main saloon has modular coffee tables and dual-purpose dining side tables

Accommodation is across four cabins, including a "minimalist-chic" owner's cabin fitted with a skylight and a television. There are further quarters for five crew. Dark koto wood and crushed green velvet are used throughout the interiors, which also benefit from floor-to-ceiling glass.

Forward of the main saloon, the open galley merges with a flexible dining area fitted with a centre island and bar counter. An electric drop-down panel separates the island and most of the galley view from the saloon, offering privacy or open interaction between guests and the chef. The upper deck houses a seven-seat beer bar and a "large entertainment area".

Meanwhile, the split-use skylounge is sheltered by the hardtop and arranged with a Teppanyaki grill, a draft beer dispenser and a fold-down television. This deck's centrepiece is the heated Jacuzzi which sports its own three-stool bar counter, while a U-shaped sofa is found to port and accompanied by an extendable dining table.

The enclosed wheelhouse features three helm chairs and a raised dinette, forward of which is the bow area fitted with another dinette and sunpads. 

For those who enjoy bridge cruising, the model features a hydraulic folding radar mast design. The ceiling can also accommodate a one-tonne helicopter landing, while the upper deck can carry a 4.6-metre tender.

"We are delighted to welcome another Cor D. Rover Signature Series design to our market," said Horizon Yacht Australia director Mark Western. "It’s the second Horizon yacht we have built as stock to Australian Maritime Safety Authority 2C Standards, which gives owners the opportunity to purchase a charter-ready vessel." 

This follows the interior reveal of Horizon Yachts' first 33.1-metre model, Ocean Lily. Owned by an art-lover, the main saloon features a pumpkin centrepiece believed to be an installation by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
