Horizon Yachts to Unveil the Brand New FD75 at Palm Beach
NEWS | March 10, 2021
The innovative model will debut alongside a selection of FD Series and Power Catamaran yachts at the Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 25-28, 2021.
The highly-anticipated Palm Beach International Boat Show has been given the green light to proceed and an exciting showcase of new and inventory yachts will be available for viewing between March 25th – 28th, 2021. On display at the Horizon stand – located on Ramp 2, Slips 201-203 – the brand new Horizon FD75 will make her U.S. debut alongside a selection of FD and Power Catamaran Series yachts.
Taking its place at the entrance of the acclaimed Cor D. Rover-designed FD Series, the FD75 model is a remarkable achievement in terms of design and naval architecture. Designed to appeal to serious owner operators, the FD75 is conceived to offer the space and amenities of a superyacht in a manageable size and offers an on-deck master, raised pilothouse and open flybridge.
Designed and engineered by the Horizon Vision yard to suit the American market, this FD75 features a galley-aft layout, which beautifully integrates the spacious main salon with the aft deck for optimal indoor/outdoor entertaining. Within a raised pilothouse design that accommodates both an open bridge and a lower helm area, the FD75 offers four staterooms including a full-beam on-deck master suite and accommodations for two crew. The interior has been fitted with complementary two-toned wood punctuated by grey and blue soft goods, grey mirrors and slatted wood design elements with carbon accents. Accompanying the indoor/outdoor style of the FD75, the foredeck is fitted with a large sunpad and seating area while the spacious open flybridge features a dayhead, built-in bar with fixed stools, lounge seating and dual helm chairs.
Designed to accommodate owner operation – with easy access to the port and starboard bridge wings for docking operations – as well as the yard’s proprietary High-Performance Piercing Bow and hull design, this latest FD75 is powered by twin Caterpillar C18 ACERTS of 1,136bhp each.
Also making its boat show debut, the tri-deck FD92 has been specified for the American market and boasts a lightweight open flybridge atop an enclosed skylounge. Maximizing all of the coveted features of the Cor D. Rover-designed FD Series – from the spacious interior and expansive windows to the High-Performance Piercing Bow and hull design – the FD92 features a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master, crew quarters and a beach club. Outfitted in satin walnut with high-gloss wenge and oak accents, the main deck is laid out in the traditional configuration, with the main salon aft and formal dining and galley amidships. Forward, the master stateroom encompasses the yacht’s 23’ 3” beam and features a his-and-hers en suite. Four further staterooms are situated on the lower deck.
The FD92’s tri-deck design allows for a helm, L-shaped seating, sunpad and a bar equipped with a fridge and icemaker to be positioned on the uppermost deck. Aft of the enclosed skylounge and wheelhouse, the boat deck houses a Jacuzzi and a fully equipped bar with stools, icemaker and refrigeration. Another inviting exterior area has been designed for the foredeck, which features a U-shaped dinette and a sunpad for three with cupholders and atmosphere lighting.
Joining her sisters is the Horizon FD85, which features an Open Bridge configuration as well as a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master suite. Recently traded in on an FD92, this FD85 is a proven performer with the space and amenities of a superyacht.
Located on the adjacent slips, the PowerCat Company will have two Horizon Power Catamaran (PC) yachts on display. The customizable PC60 can accommodate up to four staterooms and offers every amenity necessary for spectacular blue-water cruising. The PC60 on display features an on-deck master suite and two additional staterooms in the hulls. One of the most popular PowerCat models, the PC52 offers a three-cabin layout that sleeps six, with the entire starboard hull dedicated to the owners.
