Horizon FD85 yacht is heading to the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival that will take place on September 12 through September 17, 2017. The 85’ advanced fast displacement motoryacht was created in partnership between world-renowned yacht designer Cor D. Rover and Horizon Yachts‘ in-house naval architecture team. She boasts superior cruising capabilities that complement living and entertaining spaces comparable to 100-foot-plus megayachts. The new European FD85 incorporates an advanced hull form dubbed the High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB), that ensures excellent seakeeping at both slow and high speeds and, when augmented by the yacht’s stabilization system, affords a sublimely comfortable cruising experience.
Horizon FD85 boasts expansive volume and 23’3” beam. The main salon is highlighted by large sections of floor-to-ceiling windows; the master stateroom features extra-wide windows and a skylight for even more light; four additional staterooms below continue the bright and airy feel.
The yacht features an open bridge designed to maximize outdoor entertainment. This area includes a hardtop roof with a retractable sunroof, a helm station, L-shaped settee, BBQ grill and a wet bar with four bar stools. A Jacuzzi tub and 46” lift-up television invite guests to relax and enjoy the view in a space that can be easily shaded with a sun awning. The main deck features an abundance of aft deck space, great visibility, and an inviting seating area for 10-12 people greet guests who board the Horizon FD85.
The motoryacht is fitted with twin MAN 1200hp engines and a fuel capacity of 3,480 gallons. Her top speed is estimated at 16.5 knots and she offers a 1,262nm range at an 11-knot cruise. Stabilizers, a hi-lo swim platform, gangway and a full complement of standard equipment to ensure safe cruising further enhance the overall yachting experience aboard this new FD85.
