New Horizon FD87 Hull 12 Launches
NEWS | February 06, 2020
The most popular model in the Fast Displacement series, the FD87 resides in the proverbial “sweet spot” for owners looking to maximize space, performance and amenities in a mid-range yacht. The latest FD87, Hull 12, was unveiled during the 2020 Horizon Open House, held at the Horizon City Marina in Kaohsiung, Taiwan January 14-16, 2020. Commissioned for American clients, the FD87 accommodates eight guests in four staterooms, including a full beam, on-deck master suite. In place of a fifth stateroom, the owners specified a large laundry/storage room.
Walnut woods in a dark and blonde blend pleasantly contrast with white oak flooring to create a calm, sophisticated ambience within the interior. Accessed via the spacious aft deck with hi/lo folding table, the main salon and dining area with convertible, multi-functional table segues into the partially open galley. The dayhead is situated aft to starboard so as to serve guests both indoors and outdoors. Forward, the master stateroom occupies the yacht’s full beam and is outfitted in light oak flooring with walnut furnishings, while a metallic silver copper Majelite headboard provides contrast. A skylight augments the already brightly lit space and the his-and-hers en suite can be closed off with double water wave glass doors.
At 90 feet L.O.A. and boasting a gross tonnage of 170, this FD87 packs a tremendous amount of useable space into its 23’ 3” beam. The amenities continue from the foredeck lounging area to the hi/lo swim platform, which fronts the beach club with a seating area and backlit bar, and quarters for three crew. Specified in the Skyline (enclosed bridge) configuration, this FD87 features a helmstation with triple helm chairs that flows into the skylounge area with a hi/lo coffee/dining table with seating. The boat deck features a bar with fixed stools, a large freezer and grill station.
Powered by twin MTU engines of 1,600hp each, the FD87 achieves a 20-knot max speed and boasts a 1,780nm range at 10 knots.
