Horizon Launches FD92

by admin

 The FD92 is the first tri-deck model in Horizon’s acclaimed F.D. Series. 

A new model has joined Horizon Yachts’ rapidly expanding Fast Displacement (F.D.) Series of high-volume, high-performance motor yachts. Recently launched, the brand new FD92 is the Series’ first ever tri-deck design and features both an interior pilothouse and an open flybridge.

Horizon’s engineers accommodated the request by designing a hull form that accommodated a lightweight carbon fibre flybridge without compromising performance. Perched atop the proven High-Performance Piercing Bow and hull design, the FD92 maintains a wide 7.0m beam and the voluminous interior that defines the Cor D. Rover-designed FD Series.

The design was born out of an experienced owner’s request for a configuration change to the FD87 layout that would incorporate both a protected interior helm station and the option for al fresco navigation—maximising all of the coveted features of the F.D. Series–such as a spacious interior and expansive windows–the new FD92 features a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master, crew quarters and a beach club. The FD92’s tri-deck design allows for a helm, L-shaped seating, sun pad and a bar equipped with a fridge and icemaker to be positioned on the uppermost deck, which can be shaded with a bimini top. 

Another inviting exterior area has been designed for the foredeck, which features a six-person Jacuzzi, curved seating area, sun pads, fridge/icemaker and plenty of storage. This area, too, can be protected with a custom foredeck shade system. Aft of the enclosed sky lounge–which houses the helm station, lounge seating and a dayhead.

Intended for entertaining, the aft deck has been designed to accommodate formal dining for ten with a wet bar on the starboard side and a large built-in sofa with storage aft. Powered by twin Caterpillar C-32 ACERT engines of 1,900hp each, this first FD92 will provide her owners with a smooth ride and island-friendly draft for cruising throughout the Caribbean and Bahamas.

The first FD92 is on schedule to arrive in the U.S. in late October, after which she will be commissioned and delivered to her owners. A second FD92 is currently in production for delivery to the U.S. in early 2021.
