Taiwanese yacht manufacturer Horizon Yachts has launched and delivered a new FD110 tri-deck, Crowned Eagle.
The fifth hull of the superyacht Fast Displacement (FD) model, this FD110 was built for repeat owners who, after cruising aboard their FD92 tri-deck Crowned Eagle, selected the FD110 tri-deck platform upon which they could customise a layout to suit their lifestyle.
The FD110 tri-deck offers superyacht amenities including a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master suite, enclosed skylounge, beach club and crew quarters for up to six.
Highlighted by a round dining table for ten, Crowned Eagle’s main deck aft features a wet bar and built-in U-shaped seating. Storage has been carefully designed for maximum efficiency.
Sliding glass doors lead into the main salon, where a dayhead and comfortable seating area is positioned aft, and a large formal dining table with a sunburst inlay is situated amidships. The FD Series’ signature floor-to-ceiling windows feature prominently in this space, which is outfitted in light oak with walnut accents.
An etched hi/lo partition separates the large galley from the guest space. The galley features a large centre island as well as a seating nook with a fold-down table for the chef or crew.
A private staircase from the galley heads directly to the crew quarters, which are located forward on the lower deck, instead of the traditional aft location. The crew area aboard Crowned Eagle includes a large mess and three ensuite cabins – one double and two bunk.
In addition to the private crew staircase that accesses the galley directly above, a companionway leads to the guest accommodations foyer aft for ease of service. While the crew have their own laundry, the owners also specified a large laundry and storage room for the lower deck guest area, allowing for efficient laundry service akin to that found aboard large charter yachts.
The ensuite guest staterooms – three queen and one convertible twin – branch off of a wide hallway highlighted by a backlit feather etching in the aft bulkhead, a special touch created by the yard for the owners.
On the main deck, a companionway from the salon and dining area leads past the galley and stairwells to the owners’ master suite, which has been configured to include a nearly full-beam his-and-hers ensuite with central shower aft, and a set of walk-in closets built into the forward bulkhead.
Another custom layout request was accommodated on the bridge deck, where an asymmetrical enclosed skylounge with a dayhead is positioned aft of the wheelhouse.
The wheelhouse features dual-wing doors, and this area can be opened to the boat deck aft, which features a dinette and bar. When the aft tender is deployed, the deck area offers additional space for lounging or entertainment.
A side deck runs the full length of the port side on this level and leads past the bridge door to the spacious foredeck area. This space can be shaded with sun awnings and offers sunpads, a Jacuzzi tub and built-in dinettes.
The uppermost deck, accessed via stairs from the bridge deck aft, is fitted with settees, a bar area and sunpads.
Soon after taking delivery of their latest Crowned Eagle, the owners set out for a maiden voyage to the Florida Keys, after which they returned to the Bahamas.
“We loved our FD92, but the new FD110 is even better,” they say.
