Horizon pens contract for 14th hull in FD87 series

Taiwanese yard Horizon Yachts has signed a contract for the 14th hull in its successful FD87 superyacht series.

The 26.5-metre (87-foot) Skyline version of the yacht was commissioned by American clients, who have previously owned a 27.24-metre (89-foot) Horizon E88. The yacht is the fourth FD87 sold to the US market within 18 months.

Her exterior styling comes courtesy of Dutch naval architect Cor D Rover, while the interior design and high-performance bow were overseen in-house.

A customised layout is formulated on the main deck, which will see a vast country kitchen situated forward in place of the master accommodation. Consequently, all guest accommodation will be positioned on the lower deck, with a full-beam master amidships and two VIP staterooms forward and starboard.

Key exterior features include an enclosed sky lounge that extends into an al fresco entertainment area aft; an eight-person Jacuzzi tub sits forward of the pilothouse.

Delivery of the yacht is expected to take place in mid-2020, at which point her owners intend to cruise the east coast of the US and Bahamas.
