The Horizon FD85 nearing completion


Taiwanese shipyard Horizon Yachts yesterday announced the construction progress of their latest superyacht model, the 25.99 metre Horizon FD85. First announced in July, the project is reportedly 85% complete and is currently in the test tank.

The yachts’ sporty exterior was developed by the Dutch company Cor D. Rover Design, and features generous exterior areas with expansive aft-facing decks for stowing of tenders and toys and sunbathing areas. A total of ten guests can be accommodated across five luxurious cabins, including a full beam master suite and four VIP cabins.

“For the new Horizon FD85, we specifically chose to focus on a hull form that affords flexible cruise speeds without compromising performance,” said Horizon Yachts CEO, John Lu. “We also wanted this new model to incorporate modern exterior styling, tremendous interior volume, and innovative features. Cor and his team were the perfect fit for collaborating with Horizon’s in-house teams, and together we have developed an advanced fast displacement yacht that blends cutting-edge design with truly usable living and entertaining spaces comparable to most 100-foot plus yachts.”

The Horizon FD85 is expected to be delivered in Spring.
