The new Horizon FD110 is the largest build to date from the Cor D. Rover-designed Fast Displacement (FD) Series, which has become renowned for its high-volume interior and unrivalled stability and performance.
The Series’ characteristic full-height windows run from bow to stern, punctuating the exterior styling of the tri-deck yacht, whose striking presence is further amplified by its elongated exterior deck areas.
Guests of the yacht are welcomed via a Besenzoni passerelle to the aft deck that spans the yacht’s 24-foot six-inch beam and conveys a presence indicative of a much larger build.
A spacious seating area here with both fixed and loose furniture is served by a full bar with two bar stools to starboard. A Hi/Lo extendable table allows the space to convert into a dining area protected with a sunshade aft.
Entertainment and relaxation are the emphases of the FD110’s design. Through the fully opening saloon doors, the main saloon provides a voluminous oasis, where a large L-shaped seating area offers panoramic views.
A conveniently situated day head services both the interior and exterior on this deck and a convertible dining table serves a multifunctional role as both a breakfast bar and formal dining table.
Sliding glass doors provide an alfresco feel to the dining area. Sculptural overhead lighting by Italian firm Slamp punctuates the interior décor, highlighted by washed wenge wood with dark oak and walnut accents.
Forward, a fully equipped professional galley gleams with beautiful Cambria stone. It can be open or completely closed off from the guest areas for privacy.
Drawing its inspiration for the interior from trending residential design, the style throughout emphasises natural finishes, subtle colouring and clean, modern elements.
Stained walnut mimics the cosiness of aged wood, while muted lacquer in French grey lightens up the tone overall. Polished chrome accents and splashes of colour round out a design that is both warm and elegant.
One of the signature design features of the FD Series is the on-deck master stateroom – and that once on board, the new FD110 does not disappoint.
Expansive views from windows to port and starboard surround the king-sized bed and a spacious his-and-hers ensuite with a grand shower is positioned forward.
Wrapped in classic natural styling and sophisticated decor, the master is a splendid retreat in which one can relax and unwind.
On the lower deck, four further ensuite staterooms comprise two mirrored VIPs amidships, a convertible twin to port and a third VIP in the bow. A dedicated laundry room conveniently serves this area.
Aft, the air-conditioned engine room houses the yacht’s machinery and twin CAT C32A 1,900 bhp engines. This yacht is equipped with twin Onan 55 kW gensets and a SeaXchange & Spot Zero 1,800 gpd/2000Z combo unit watermaker among its many high-end systems.
Zero speed stabilisers, Humphree interceptors and 65 hp bow and stern thrusters augment the superior performance provided by the yacht’s High-Performance Piercing Bow and hull design.
Crew quarters for up to six are situated furthest aft and include a double captain’s cabin and crew mess.
A large storage locker features a hydraulic door that accesses the yacht’s full-beam Hi/Lo swim platform. An internal stairway links the crew area with the aft deck above.
Thoughtfully designed for entertainment and relaxation, the FD110 offers enviable areas for both the bridge and upper decks.
The enclosed skylounge offers plentiful seating as well as a wet bar with a wine cooler and day head aft.
Equipped with custom Garmin navigation equipment and twin helm chairs, the forward wheelhouse features a Hi/Lo window and door, allowing the space to be open to or closed off from the skylounge as desired.
Twin wingstations assist in docking and the yacht’s walkaround side decks lead to the forward entertainment area and boat deck aft.
Horizon’s capability to maximise the foredeck areas of its yachts is another distinguishing feature of the FD Series. Aboard the new FD110, the foredeck is fitted out with a spacious sun pad, seating and dinettes and a large jacuzzi tub.
Plentiful storage, a refrigerator, icemaker and removable sunshades make this a compelling exterior lounge area.
On the boat deck, an L-shaped lounger converts to a full sun pad, protected by a sun awning. The area is equipped with a barbecue and space for storage of a 17-foot tender furthest aft.
The uppermost deck provides yet another exceptional exterior area fitted with multiple sun pads, seating and a wet bar for alfresco relaxation amid panoramic views.
The area is also equipped for plug-in remote-control manoeuvring and docking.
Offering the full package of space, style and sophistication, the new FD110 is on schedule to make her US debut in the summer of 2022.
