Taiwanese yard Horizon Yachts has signed a contract for the second hull in its new FD102 series.
The development follows on from news that the yard had begun work on the first hull at the end of 2018, after the model was sold to a European owner at Monaco Yacht Show.
The second hull of the Fast Displacement series has been commissioned by experienced American owners.
It is understood that the second model will be heavily customised, with the yard revealing that it was Horizon’s flexibility and willingness to tailor the yacht to the owner’s needs that secured the contract. The owners intend to get “extensive cruising” out of the yacht in US waters.
With work due to be completed in April 2020, the latest FD102 model will be a Skyline version and boast a spacious skylounge with a dining area on the bridge deck. Elsewhere, the tender and deploying davit will be located forward, leaving the aft deck space clear.
Accommodation is for up to ten guests across a full-beam master on the main deck and four further guest cabins – a king, two queens and a twin – on the lower deck.
The main deck will also feature a dining area and spacious lounge area leading aft to the swim platform.
