Sixth Horizon FD85 delivered and named Julind
by Miranda Blazeby
The sixth hull in Horizon’s FD85 series has successfully completed sea trials and been delivered to her young Australian owner.
The Cor D. Rover designed yacht, which has been named Julind, features expansive living and entertaining spaces, satisfying the owner’s desire for a “party yacht”.
The yacht features a number of customised options as specified by the owner. A keen water sports enthusiast, the owner asked for a dive gear storage area next to the tender garage, which also includes a fuelling station.
The yard also added a fillet table onto the hydraulic swim platform to enable the owner to clean and prepare freshly caught seafood.
Julind has also been fitted with a helipad to meet the owner's request for the yacht to accommodate guests travelling to and from the yacht.
To provide the structural support needed for the helipad, Horizon constructed a carbon fibre bridge hardtop.
Julind was built in compliance with Australian AS/ NZ power standards and is powered by a pair of MAN 1,200hp engines for a top speed of 16.6 knots at half load.
The yacht has embarked on her maiden voyage from Kaohsiung in Taiwan to Australia.
