Horizon Yachts Reveals New 28 Metre FD92 Yacht Model
by Miranda Blazeby
Taiwanese builder Horizon Yachts has added a new model to its Fast Displacement yacht series.
The 28 metre FD92 model was born from a collaboration with an American owner, who requested both an enclosed skylounge and an open flybridge. The FD92 has an “extended hullform” and a tri-deck superstructure as a result.
The first FD92 is already under construction and is due to be delivered to its American owner in July 2020. The second FD92 meanwhile is being built on-spec and will be launched by the end of 2020.
Based on the FD87, the FD92 is designed by long-term Horizon collaborator Cor D Rover and features a High-Performance Piercing Bow.
Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in a full beam master stateroom and four lower deck guest cabins. The staff quarters meanwhile are located aft of the engine room and allow for a crew of three.
Elsewhere, the new design allows for increased exterior areas. There is a helm station, L-shaped seating, sunpad and small bar on the top deck, a six-person Jacuzzi on the foredeck and a second helm station aft of the enclosed skylounge. The aft deck is also equipped with a dining area for a total of 10 guests.
Speaking about the new model, Horizon group chief executive John Lu said: “The collaboration with the owner of the FD92 led not only to a yacht that met his design criteria, but also a new model for our FD Series that offers the best of indoor and outdoor living.”
