Record Temps and Record Attendance at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show
NEWS | November 22, 2019
A sweltering heat wave didn’t deter serious buyers from attending the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and visiting the Horizon Yachts Showcase, which was prominently positioned on the busy F Dock, Slips 600-606. It was a tremendous show for Horizon, with a record number of interested clients touring the four brand new Horizon yachts on display.
The two new Fast Displacement Series FD80 (ex-FD77) models – Skyline and Open Bridge configurations – received rave reviews, and allowed buyers to see and feel the differences between the two five-stateroom layouts. The star of the show was the FD87 Skyline, which exceeded client expectations with its five-stateroom layout, on-deck master, beautiful beach club and interior space akin to a 100ft-plus boat. Nestled between her FD Series cousins, the beautiful new E56, OMA, captured hearts with her classic interior layout and timeless styling.
On the Friday evening of the show, Horizon owners, guests and friends gathered at the Horizon display to tour the yachts and enjoy hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Sandy James catering with live music by the Pam & Dave Band. Designers Cor D. Rover and J.C. Espinosa were on hand and several owners were spotted reviewing their yacht plans and discussing customization options with the designers during the soiree.
The Horizon Yacht USA team has been busy with sea trials since the show, with several buyers showing serious interest in the FD80s and FD87. Please contact the Horizon Yacht USA team at 561-721-4850 or email [email protected] to learn more about available inventory and new build slots.
