Horizon Yachts Launches Tri-Deck FD100
NEWS | February 06, 2023
The second tri-deck FD100 yacht has been thoughtfully designed for multi-generational entertainment both onboard and on the water.
A new tri-deck FD100 has launched and will soon deliver to her experienced owners. This is the first Horizon yacht build for the American clients, who worked closely with the Horizon Yacht USA team to incorporate a design that emphasizes entertainment with family and friends.
The five-stateroom yacht is the second tri-deck FD100 sold after the model concept was introduced at the 2021 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and its layout has been customized to suit the owners’ lifestyle throughout. Accessed via a Besenzoni three-stage passerelle to port, the spacious aft deck features a large seating area with a Hi/Lo table, an electric fold-down 65” television to port, a full bar with two fixed barstools to starboard and plentiful storage. Four fishing rod holders are included in the storage in this area, while a Dometic Eskimo fishbox ice system and a dedicated cabinet for fishing gear have been incorporated into the yacht’s beach club.
The interior exudes an elegant feel and is highlighted by modern artistic elements that add visual interest. The main salon offers a comfortable lounging area and extra seating with an L-shaped sofa and a dayhead aft. Graced by a modern rectangular Rhiannon chandelier, the dining area comprises a large table for ten while the spacious, fully equipped galley includes a small seating area and comprises the port side of the main deck forward. A handcrafted glass Hi/Lo partition featuring a splash ink pattern creates privacy between the dining and galley. A built-in, full-height Thermador wine cooler with glass storage is positioned to starboard.
A hallmark of the FD Series, the full-beam master stateroom is situated furthest forward on this deck and features a large his-and-hers ensuite and ample closet space. A floating staircase graced by a marbled plaster feature wall accesses both the bridge deck above and the lower deck accommodations, where four further ensuite staterooms comprise three queen-size VIPs and a convertible twin. Crew quarters for six and a private crew mess are situated aft of the engine room. Within the spacious beach club, the owners specified a bar as well as dedicated storage for two Montague M-E1 bikes, dive gear and the aforementioned fishing gear and icebox system. Dive compressors are conveniently incorporated in the beach club as well as within the starboard stairs to the 2,500lb hydraulic swim platform.
The customization aboard the new tri-deck FD100 is most evident within the enclosed skylounge, which the owners specified with an entertainment console housing an 85” television positioned just aft of the wheelhouse to provide privacy and separation between the crew and guest spaces. The guest area features a curved bar and dayhead facing a large L-shaped settee with a Hi/Lo table, while the bridge deck aft houses a Jacuzzi tub with a counter bar and stools and space for tender and toy storage furthest aft. The lounging and entertaining continues on the foredeck, which offers additional seating and sunbathing opportunities shaded by sun awnings. The owners customized the uppermost deck by eliminating the helm station to create an enviable al fresco dining area with a table that expands to seat ten, a buffet, wet bar, seating and sunpads.
The experienced owners incorporated numerous additional details to enable efficient and comfortable cruising and living, such as an aft deck camera to monitor the towed tender while underway, additional outlets on the swim platform stairs and bridge deck aft to charge the electric PWCs and additional HDMI connections for interactive video games displayed on the 85” television. A Twin Disc EC300 Joystick system at the helm and the starboard-side aft deck and EC300 controls at the port and starboard wing stations enable efficient and flexible maneuvering. To set the mood for entertainment, the owners also installed a Quick Marine Lighting system that controls all exterior RGB lights, while 22 Lumishore underwater lights enhance the overall effect.
This new, well-specified Tri-Deck FD100 will soon deliver to her Florida-based owners, who plan to cruise the Abacos islands in the Bahamas.
