To celebrate the start of October, Horizon Yachts has positive news to share — the new Horizon FD85 motoryacht HUE MUNGUS has just delivered to her Australian owners. She is the first Fast Displacement Series model to be delivered to mainland Australia.
The repeat owners previously owned a 62ft Horizon motoryacht and enjoyed the yachting lifestyle so much that they considered their boat a second home. During the search for their next yacht, they looked at the FD Series, with its voluminous interior spaces and flexible cruising capability, and selected the FD85 as the ideal luxury yacht for their family.
During the build process, the owners attended many meetings and made seven trips to the Horizon Yachts headquarters in Taiwan. They were very pleased with the swift responses from Horizon’s in-house team who went above and beyond to provide custom packages for them — something that Horizon is proud to provide to further the trust and cooperation with every owner.
The name HUE MUNGUS means gigantic, which was the first impression the owners and their grandchild had when they came upon the 90ft (27.5m) long and 76ft (23m) wide FD85. Surrounded by three large floor-to-ceiling windows, the spacious salon invites in abundant natural light. The formal dining area, highlighted by detailed wall treatments, comfortably accommodates 10 guests. The full-beam, on-deck master staterooms provides a private and relaxed space for the owners, and the lower deck encompasses three comfortable en suite VIP staterooms and one two-guest stateroom, along with separate crew quarters aft.
Moreover, HUE MUNGUS offers every amenity needed for family entertaining. The large, open flybridge not only houses a tender and jet ski, but also provides a BBQ, bar, and a Jacuzzi, which transforms into a sunbathing area. The aft deck is equipped with a BBQ and icemaker, while the tender garage provides easy access to the hi/lo swim platform, allowing the owners and their guests to easily enjoy on-water activities.
Powered by twin MTU 1600hp engines, HUE MUNGUS offers safe and comfortable performance, with a top speed of 19.3 knots and an impressive 1650nm range at a 10-knot cruise.
We wish the new owners a wonderful cruising season and many happy memories made onboard on their new Horizon FD85 luxury motoryacht!
