The active boaters previously owned two Horizon yachts and a 76’ sailing yacht.
Volume, space, comfort and reliability were the characteristics that brought experienced owners back to Horizon. Having previously owned a Horizon E64 and a Horizon E78, the active German owners had spent the last few years sailing around the Mediterranean aboard their 76’ sailing yacht. When they decided to return to cruising, they spent a long time searching for the perfect motor yacht. They visited the new FD87 at the Horizon Europe office in Mallorca and couldn’t pass up the volume and comfort of the FD Series and the High-Performance Piercing Bow and hull design.
Christened ICE, the CE-certified FD87 Skyline features a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master and an enclosed skylounge. The light and airy main deck salon spans the 23’ 3” beam and is highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows and oak woodwork. A convertible dining table doubles as a formal table and breakfast bar and the forward galley can be separated from the salon via privacy doors and a Hi/Lo partition. The full-beam master stateroom is situated furthest forward. Four spacious guest staterooms outfitted in Wenge reside on the lower deck.
The upper deck houses the wheelhouse and an enclosed skylounge, aft of which a bar with stools, a dinette and lounging area, and a BBQ grill invite al fresco relaxation and entertainment. Forward, the foredeck area has been designed with a settee and dinette, a large sunpad and a “love seat” furthest forward to accommodate cocktail hour, sunbathing, or quiet moments of reflection.
Of his new yacht, the owner says, “This is now our third yacht from the shipyard in Kaohsiung. After the E64 and the E78, we were looking for a larger model. The Horizon standards of reliability and first-class build quality were also evident on this new yacht. We love the massive volume, which makes life on board incredibly comfortable. We are very pleased with our decision to buy a Horizon yacht again."
The owners took delivery of their new FD87 in September 2020 and have been cruising around Mallorca. They plan to spend lot of time onboard in the coming months, making long journeys around the Mediterranean.
