Horizon Yachts Adds FD70 to Fast Displacement Range
by Miranda Blazeby
The first hull in the new 21.3 metre FD70 range is currently in the tooling phase while the first two hulls are planned for the European and American markets respectively. The first hull is set to make its debut next year.
Designed for owner operation, the FD70 features a raised pilothouse design with an open bridge and lower helm area. Key exterior design details include large sections of glass and expansive deck areas.
A selection of interior layouts are available for owners, who can choose to situate the galley and formal dining are aft of the main deck and have the option to give up the fixed formal dining area in favour of a convertible dining area. There is also the option to have a beach club.
Accommodation on board is for a total of eight guests comprising a full beam main deck master and three further staterooms, a queen, double and twin, on the lower deck. There is also accommodation for two crew members aft.
Horizon chief executive John Lu said the new model was a result of “the phenomenal success of the FD Series”. This “led to many clients asking us if we could create something that offered the same amenities, space and performance as the larger FD yachts.”
He added: “It was a challenging brief but not impossible.”
