The Fast Displacement Series Horizon FD75, named Ocean Lily, is totally customised throughout to the specification of its Taiwanese owner, who envisioned a yacht purpose-built for entertainment.
Each Horizon yacht is built upon a proven platform that has been rigorously tank tested, engineered and created using the most advanced composites construction methods.
Upon this platform a client can consider a variety of layouts, often taking advantage of design and engineering ingenuities that were put into place through the customizations of other Horizon owners.
The owner of the new FD75 requested a number of custom features, resulting in a yacht that presents one of the most unique layouts found on an FD Series yacht to date. The concept behind the Ocean Lily design and build is to entertain and accommodate groups of up to 20 people.
The first hint at large party entertainment begins on the aft deck, which the owner had fitted with an expansive table seating 12 for both meetings and dining.
Within fully opening sliding glass doors, the spacious main saloon features dual oversized sofas for conversation and relaxation, while a fully equipped galley is situated forward with a day head to port.
The most dramatic customisation on this yacht comes in the form of a simple yet unique layout configuration – forward, the space that normally holds the full-beam, on-deck master stateroom has been designed as a karaoke room with disco lighting.
A custom oversized sofa dominates the space. After the performances, the sofa and convertible coffee tables transform into beds to sleep four guests.
The second departure from the norm appears on the open flybridge of Ocean Lily. In this expansive space, which offers multiple areas for dining and lounging, the owner requested a DJ booth setup and smoke machines as well as disco lighting.
All the furniture on the decks is freestanding and multifunctional so as to accommodate a variety of activities. A total of five hotpot stations have been installed on both the main and boat decks aft and a dumbwaiter facilitates service between the galley and the flybridge.
On the lower deck, three additional staterooms have been configured to sleep multiple guests, while aft of the engine room housing the twin MAN V8 diesel engines of 1,200 hp each, a crew cabin and mess is positioned at the stern.
Ocean Lily will be berthed at Singapore’s world-class ONE°15 Marina in Sentosa Cove.
