Horizon Yachts returns to Sanctuary Cove in May to present two new FD builds.

21 April 2024

Horizon Yachts is returning to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, which runs from May 23 to 26, 2024.

Two brand new FD builds—which made their global premieres at the 2024 Horizon Open House—will share the stage on Pier G with the first V74 customised for the Australian market.

Alongside these three headliners, Horizon is presenting a range of brokerage yachts for viewing.

“We are delighted to reveal a lineup at SCIBS 2024 targeted at the region’s diverse boating audience,” says Mark Western, director at Horizon Yacht Australia. “The show provides an opportunity to experience the Horizon difference firsthand, from the exceptional craftsmanship of our FD90 model to the uniquely Australian-tailored FD80 meeting all AMSA 2C regulations and the V74 with its localised design elements.”


The FD90 Hull 30 is the latest addition to Horizon’s FD Series, and is making its Australian debut at SCIBS 2024. This motor yacht has a five-stateroom layout with a full-beam master stateroom on the main deck and four guest rooms on the lower deck.

The interior of the FD90 Hull 30 echoes the principles of wabi-sabi, a Japanese design aesthetic that celebrates simplicity and natural imperfections, with light grey oak cabinetry and warm golden accents.

A full-beam skylounge blends with the bridge deck, featuring an entertainment area with a wet bar, jacuzzi, and lounging area. An electric flybridge sunroof ensures uninterrupted enjoyment day or night.

The fast-cruising FD80 series yacht, which debuted at the 2024 Horizon Open House, will be exhibited in Australia for the first time.

Built to meet the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) 2C inspection requirements, the multi-purpose FD80, the twelfth in the series, can operate as either a private yacht or charter vessel.

Expansive floor-to-ceiling glass walls in the salon, dining area, and on-deck master stateroom offer impressive views. Accommodation in a four-cabin layout features a full beam master and three guest rooms below deck, with the VIP convertible between a V-berth and double bed.

The skylounge features a wet bar, teppanyaki grill, draft beer system, and sliding windows for panoramic views.

The boat deck accommodates a 15-foot (4.57-metre) tender, along with a large entertainment area, a jacuzzi with a bar and three stools, and a large-capacity freezer.

The V74 Hull 8 offers a range of customisation options.

Distinguished by a plumb bow design, a bold exterior and a voluminous interior layout, the V74 is smaller in length than most Horizon vessels delivered in Australia and has been a hit with buyers, according to the yard.

It features an enclosed skylounge with a day head and a bright main salon with large windows, as well as a spacious galley and country kitchen dinette forward on the main deck.

Four staterooms are positioned on the lower deck, including a full-beam master with ensuite, bunk and convertible twins and a forward VIP. A beach club with lounge seating and a wet bar accesses the extended 450kg capacity Hi/Lo swim platform.
