Tri-deck FD92 "NeX-T" delivered
A brand new FD92 was formally handed over to her owners. Christened 'NeX-T', this is the first Horizon build for the clients, who were drawn to Horizon for the ability to design and customize their next yacht to their preference.
The five-stateroom yacht exudes a casual, Mid-Century Modern style throughout, which begins on the aft deck where a cozy conversation area with a Hi/Lo foldable coffee table transition through fully opening doors into the spacious main salon. In the open salon, a dayhead is situated aft to starboard, faced by a sumptuous leather L-shaped sofa and large coffee table with ottoman storage. The owner worked with Horizon’s in-house design team to bring his style to the interior, which features dark walnut flooring with teak wood in a satin finish as the main woods. This elegant combination complements the subtle Mid-Century Modern touch found in the furniture and finishes.
Forward of the main salon area, a large dining area featuring a convertible dining table is easily accessed by the Cambria-highlighted galley, which can be open or closed off from the salon via a door and a privacy screen. Floor-to-ceiling windows invite plenty of light into the salon, and sliding doors to either side allow for semi-al fresco dining in this space. The main-deck master stateroom forward features plentiful closet space as well as a modern headliner treatment over the king-sized bed that faces the his-and-hers ensuite.
Four additional ensuite staterooms comprised of two mirrored VIPs amidships, a convertible twin to port and a VIP in the bow are situated on the lower deck. Crew quarters for five are positioned aft of the engine room, with access to the spacious beach club fitted with a convertible settee/sunpad that accesses the water via the Hi/Lo swim platform.
The FD92’s tri-deck design allows for multiple exterior spaces for entertaining and relaxing. On the bridge deck, the enclosed wheelhouse and skylounge opens aft onto the boat deck that features a bar with three fixed stools and six-person Jacuzzi with its own counter area and barstools. The foredeck is outfitted with additional seating and lounging while the lightweight flybridge features a helm and comfortable L-shaped seating area.
After the delivery gifts were presented and the champagne was poured over the nameplate for good luck, the owners and their crew set out for their maiden voyage to The Bahamas.
