Horizon launches latest custom-built FD80 for Australia

23 November 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Horizon Yachts has launched the eleventh hull in its 25-metre FD80 series, which is ready to debut in Australia.

Standout features include a custom interior by series architect Cor D. Rover and a split-use skylounge with heated Jacuzzi.

Aft of the main deck is an al fresco dining table for eight and walk-around side decks

Accommodation is across four cabins, including an on-deck master cabin with independent vanity and honeycomb skylight. There are further quarters for four crew. The interiors are open-plan, featuring a main saloon accompanied by a multi-functional dining space with a convertible dining and breakfast table. 

Styled with soft, rounded architectural lines, light grey oak is incorporated throughout the living spaces, complemented by gold accents for a chic minimalist aesthetic. Furnishings are owed to Australian firm ABI Interiors.

There are also ample social spaces outside, including the bow which is fitted with a U-shaped dinette and sunpads. The most-used area is likely to be the sheltered skylounge, however, fitted with a full bar, pull-out Teppanyaki grill and fold down 43-inch television. 

The skylounge also benefits from a heated Jacuzzi with its own bar counter and a U-shaped sofa with an extendable dining table. When the tender is deployed, freestanding furniture creates an impromptu convivial area.

The beach club is equipped with a hi-lo swimming platform with 680kg lifting capacity

"We are delighted to welcome another Cor D. Rover Signature Series design to our market," says Horizon Yacht Australia director Mark Western. "The modern interior styling of this new FD80 showcases the luxurious finishes available in the FD Series, while the abundant use of curves is a testament to Horizon’s craftsmanship and customization capability."


This follows the Taiwanese shipyard's recent sale of its latest FD90 – the first to feature a split-use skylounge.
