The very first hull in Horizon Yacht’s new FD85 Fast Displacement Series is currently undergoing seatrials, as pictured in the following photographs. The 25.99 metre vessel was first revealed to the industry last July, and features exterior design by Dutch studio Cor D. Rover Design.

Horizon comments on her performance during her seatrials so far, stating: “During the first tests, the performance of the FD85 was completely convincing - the targeted 17 to 18 knots were easily reached with relatively small engines. The concept of a fast displacement hull is very successful.”

A total of ten guests are accommodated on board over five spacious cabins, including a full beam master suite on the main deck in addition to four en-suite VIP cabins on the lower deck. Amongst her stand out features is a 40 square metre aft deck featuring plenty of seating and lounging areas, as well as a swimming pool and Jacuzzi. An additional Jacuzzi is also found on the sundeck.

She will make her world debut at the upcoming Taiwan International Boat Show from the 10th to 13th March in Kaohsiung.
