New FD77 Skyline: Horizon Yachts Adds an Owner/Operator Model to Fast Displacement Series
NEWS | August 31, 2018
Horizon Yachts and designer Cor D. Rover have once again partnered to collaborate on a new design, the FD77 Skyline. This latest model is the smallest of the extremely successful Fast Displacement series, which debuted in the US with the FD85 at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and includes the FD85, FD87 Skyline, FD 102 Skyline, and FD 125 Skyline models. Incorporating the same sought-after features that characterize the FD series such as large sections of floor-to-ceiling windows, an expansive 23' beam, and a striking exterior profile that presides atop Horizon's High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB) hull design, the compact FD77 has been purposely designed for owner operation. Available in a flybridge or enclosed bridge version, the FD77 maximizes its impressive interior volume with sections of floor-to-ceiling windows that punctuate the main deck from the salon forward into the on-deck master stateroom. A sliding glass door to starboard in the main salon accesses the exterior walkway that leads to the forward deck. Three additional staterooms comprising two VIPs and a twin are found on the lower deck, as is a large beach club area aft. Powered by twin CAT C18As of 1136hp each, hull one of the FD77 is currently in production for the American market and is expected to debut at the Palm Beach boat show and Miami boat show 2019, while hulls two and three are intended for the European and Australian markets, respectively.
