Horizon launches latest hull in 25m FD80 series

2 November 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Taiwanese shipyard Horizon Yachts has launched the latest model in its 25-metre FD80 series. 

Stand-out features include a split-use sky lounge and a custom interior by the series' architect, Dutch designer Cor D. Rover.

Accommodation is across four cabins, including a full-beam master cabin with honeycomb skylight, independent vanity and backlit, half-moon metal and lacquer panel. There is further space for a crew of four.

The open-plan interior layout sees a living area accompanied by a multi-functional dining space, with convertible dining and breakfast table to starboard. Cultivating a soft, minimalist look, the interiors incorporate light grey oak woodwork, gold detailing and curved architectural lines. Furnishings and accents are by Australian firm ABI Interiors.

Designed as the yacht's main convivial area, the split-use sky lounge and bridge deck are protected by the yacht’s hardtop and also benefit from opening windows on either side. This area features a full bar with three bar stools, a pull-out Teppanyaki grill station and a fold-down television to starboard. To port, a U-shaped sofa is accompanied by a dining table that can expand to suit the number of guests.

At the center of the deck, a heated Jacuzzi features its own bar counter with stools and freestanding furniture, which can be rearranged when the tender is deployed. The beach club also benefits from a Hi-Lo swim platform with 680kg lifting capacity.

“We are delighted to welcome another Cor D. Rover Signature Series design to our market,” said 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.”

Powered by twin MAN engines, the latest FD80 is anticipated to reach a maximum speed of 17.4 knots.
