Freedom in Newport

Horizon Yacht will showcase the Horizon FD92 at the 2022 Newport International Boat Show.

01 September 2022

Now available for sale, the Horizon FD92 Freedom will be on display at the 53rd edition of the Newport International Boat Show this year.

The first tri-deck build of the high-volume Fast Displacement (FD) Series of Horizon motor yachts, this FD92 was originally built for an owner who desired both an enclosed skylounge and an upper-level flybridge for open-air navigation.

The Newport International Boat Show draws on the esteemed nautical history of the charming, coastal New England town, welcoming visitors worldwide for the annual showcase of over 600 power and sail vessels.

Occupying a prominent position on the Facedock North, the Horizon FD92 will be the largest motor yacht in attendance.

Designed in collaboration with Cor D. Rover, Horizon’s FD Series of yachts has pioneered the high-volume trend that has become increasingly popular in mid-size motor yachts.


Distinguished by a striking exterior profile and voluminous design that yields an interior layout, plus amenities previously afforded only to larger yachts, the Horizon FD Series yacht combines high-volume design with high-quality, advanced composites construction.

Stability and comfort are also afforded from a proprietary High Performance Piercing Bow and hull design.

Through owner customisation and Horizon’s willingness to engineer new designs, the successful FD Series has expanded to include eight models, ranging from the FD75 to the FD125.

Having recently undergone an interior refresh, Freedom features a full-beam, on-deck master and four additional staterooms on the lower deck, with crew quarters for four positioned aft.

Outfitted in light satin oak with high-gloss, dark walnut accents, the main deck is laid out in the traditional configuration, with the main saloon aft and formal dining and galley amidships.

The saloon offers U-shaped sofa seating with freestanding chairs and an ottoman-style coffee table. A formal dining area is forward, followed by a fully equipped galley that can be separated from the saloon via privacy doors and a hi/lo glass partition.

In the forward master stateroom, this yacht features a his- and-hers ensuite as well as dual full-height hanging lockers plus plenty of storage. A custom backlit headboard and soffit design add an air of sophistication.

Highlighted with a satin white oak finish, the lower deck houses three queen-size ensuite staterooms and a convertible twin ensuite with a Pullman berth. The engine room, crew quarters and beach club are positioned aft.

The crew area has been designed with a double captain’s cabin and second cabin with fixed bunk and Pullman berth to accommodate up to four other crew members.

Aft of the enclosed skylounge on the bridge deck – which houses the helm station, lounge seating with retractable television, dayhead, desk area and custom ottoman/coffee table – the boat deck features a custom arrangement with an L-shaped dinette.

A backlit Corian bar with stools, icemaker, refrigeration, sink, barbecue, commercial freezer and storage can also be found on the bridge deck. A tender is stowed furthest aft while underway and the entire area can be cooled by a custom shade system.

The opportunities for alfresco entertainment are plentiful on this tri-deck yacht, whether it’s dining on the spacious aft deck or enjoying a cocktail from the bar on the bridge deck.

The uppermost deck is equipped with a helm station, seating area and small bar, while a six-person jacuzzi, seating, sun pads and a refrigerator/icemaker complement the lounging area on the foredeck.

Freedom also features a fully equipped beach club and a hi/lo swim platform with a custom, transformer stair section for easy water access.

“Showcasing this popular FD Series build at the Newport International Boat Show provides a great opportunity for our clients to see firsthand the build calibre that defines each Horizon motor yacht,” said Roger Sowerbutts, Director of Horizon Yacht USA.

“Our advanced composites technology, design flexibility and construction methods are second-to-none and we are looking forward to discussing the Horizon difference as well as the exciting new builds making their US debut this fall.”

The five-stateroom, high-volume yacht will be on display 15 to 18 September.
