Sold | First Enclosed FD75
With the basic design layout now complete, a new Horizon FD75 is now under construction for Australian clients. This latest FD75 is the fourth FD75 to be built since Hull One was launched in January 2020 and is the first of the model to feature a Skyline configuration.
In Horizon’s acclaimed Cor D. Rover-designed FD Series, the FD75 is designed to incorporate myriad superyacht amenities into an owner-operator platform. As with every Horizon yacht build, the ability for an owner to customize a vessel to his/her lifestyle is embraced. After researching both local and international yacht builders, the clients felt that Horizon had the best resources, commitment, and international team to design and build this custom yacht to their standards.
To suit their active cruising lifestyle, the owners specified a three-stateroom layout for the 23m yacht comprising the semi on-deck, full-beam master stateroom – one of the hallmarks of the FD75 model – with two large full-beam guest staterooms on the lower deck. A large beach club and Hi/Lo swim platform reside aft of the engine room.
On the main deck, a spacious aft deck flows into the main salon, which features an L-shaped seating area with a large dining area and country-kitchen-style galley occupying the full 5.20m beam furthest forward.
The enclosed pilothouse resides on the uppermost deck and offers a comfortable U-shaped settee and dayhead with a large open boat deck for entertaining and tender storage aft. Settees for relaxing and sunbathing are positioned on the foredeck.
“We chose to work with the Horizon Yacht Australia and Taiwan teams as we believed that they understood and embraced our vision,” say the owners. “We believe that we are investing in a company that has the technology, knowledge and design experience to deliver the yacht of our dreams. The result will be a stunning vessel, designed to suit our lifestyle that we can share with our friends and family.”
The new FD75 is scheduled to be delivered in Winter 2021.
