Taiwanese yard Horizon Yachts has announced the sale of a new-build FD90 model to a repeat client. The 27.4-metre fast displacement superyacht was sold at this year's Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Australia and is classed in accordance with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) new 2C survey requirements, ready for charter.
The model is designed by Cor D. Rover in collaboration with Horizon and commissioned by an owner upgrading from an E73 model.
After attending the Horizon Yacht Australia Owners Rendezvous, the client desired a yacht fit for charter. A press release stated that “the owner sees a tremendous potential with a yacht offering the volume and amenities afforded by the FD90s design and looks forward to creating a next-level charter experience.”
The yacht comprises a five-stateroom configuration for guests. The multi-use flybridge will be home to a lounging area, Jacuzzi and barbecue facilities and aft there is a beach club and garage. Meanwhile, inside, the interior boasts a contemporary feel with water-bleached walnut and dyed koto woods.
The FD90 yachts are powered by an MTU engine, allowing a top speed of 19.4 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots. Other models in this FD series include the FD75, FD80, FD100 Skyline and tri-deck, FD110 Skyline, FD110 Tri-deck and the flagship, FD125.
According to the BOATPro database there are another four other Horizon FD90s currently under construction with estimated delivery in 2024. The latest unit to be delivered in this FD90 series was Issimo delivered earlier this year.
