Rover-designed Fast Displacement (FD) Series, the FD90 offers a spacious four-stateroom layout with plentiful amenities befitting a luxury superyacht, including an expansive aft deck.

Sliding glass doors accessing the walkaround decks to port and starboard invite the outdoors into the dining area forward, and the fully-equipped galley can be open to the salon and dining area or closed via doors and a privacy screen.
