ANOTHER CROWNED EAGLE IS DELIVERED
NEWS | October 02, 2023
After enjoying their custom FD92, the owners of Crowned Eagle decided to expand their Horizon…and build a tri-deck FD110.
It was an exciting time for the owners as the second Crowned Eagle was christened in an intimate ceremony on the Intercostal Waterway in Florida. These owners were instrumental in bringing the tri-deck design to the FD Series with their FD92 and moved up to build this FD110 to accommodate more friends and family on their Caribbean travels.
Having enjoyed their FD92, the owners knew what they wanted in a new, larger build and the result is a spectacular arrangement that prioritizes entertainment, crew quarters and storage. Boasting a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master suite, enclosed skylounge, beach club, and crew quarters for up to six, the FD110 Tri-Deck’s list of amenities is suitable for a high-volume yacht of this length. What is remarkable, however, is the space given to each area. Once again, Horizon has introduced a new model that outranks traditional yachts of the same length and the experienced owners were well aware of what the FD110 could offer them - and their crew.Highlighted by a round dining table for ten, the main deck aft features a wet bar and built-in U-shaped seating as well as plentiful storage. Having the mark of experienced owners, storage is considerable throughout, and every space appears to have been carefully designed for maximum efficiency. Sliding glass doors lead into the main salon, where a dayhead and comfortable seating area are positioned aft, and a large formal dining table with a sunburst inlay is situated amidships. The FD Series’ signature floor-to-ceiling windows feature prominently in this space, which is outfitted in light oak with walnut accents.An etched Hi/Lo partition separates the large galley from the guest space. The galley itself is well equipped to accommodate the owners’ cruising and entertaining plans and features a large center island as well as a seating nook with a fold-down table for the chef or crew - who enjoy a private staircase from the galley to their spacious quarters forward on the lower deck. Doors to port and starboard access the side decks - the port door is somewhat out of sight from the guest areas and easily facilitates crew flow without interrupting dining or relaxation in the salon areas.“Our favorite part of the boat? The crew quarters!” say the owners. Indeed, the crew quarters aboard the new FD110 are nothing short of exceptional. Positioned forward on the lower deck instead of the traditional aft location, the crew area aboard Crowned Eagle includes a large mess and three ensuite cabins - one double and two bunk. In addition to the private crew staircase that accesses the galley directly above, a companionway leads to the guest accommodations foyer aft for ease of service. While the crew have their own laundry, the owners also specified a large laundry and storage room for the lower deck guest area, allowing for efficient laundry service akin to that found aboard 150ft+ charter yachts.The ensuite guest staterooms on this level are spacious in their own right, with three queens and 1 convertible twin branching off of a wide hallway highlighted by a backlit feather etching in the aft bulkhead - a special touch created by the yard for the owners. A small drinks refrigerator is positioned in the lower foyer, and additional storage is found behind hidden cabinets.
Back on the main deck, a companionway from the salon and dining area leads past the galley and stairwells to the owners’ master suite which has been configured to include not only a nearly full-beam his-and-hers ensuite with central shower aft but also an incredible set of walk-in closets built into the forward bulkhead - the owners’ second favorite feature aboard their new yacht, they say.
Another unique layout request was accommodated on the bridge deck, where an asymmetrical enclosed skylounge with a dayhead is positioned aft of the wheelhouse. The wheelhouse itself features dual-wing doors as well as a desk for the captain and a raised settee for guests and can be partitioned off from the aft skylounge with a door as well as a Hi/Lo partition behind the settee. This area can be open to the boat deck aft, which features a dinette as well as a bar with fixed bar stools. When the aft tender is deployed, the deck area offers additional space for lounging or entertainment.
A side deck runs the full length of the port side on this level and leads past the bridge door to the spacious foredeck area. This space can be shaded with sun awnings and offers sunpads, a Jacuzzi tub, and built-in dinettes.
As if the deck areas aren’t enough on this FD110, the uppermost “tri-deck” does not disappoint. Accessed via stairs from the bridge deck aft, this large space is yet another piece de resistance, as it is fitted with plentiful settees, a bar area, and sunpads for a truly relaxing space.
Soon after taking delivery of their latest Crowned Eagle, the owners set out for a maiden voyage to the Florida Keys after which they returned to The Bahamas, one of their favorite cruising areas. “We loved our FD92,” they say, “but the new Crowned Eagle is even better!”
