Demand for a tri-deck version of Horizon’s high-volume FD Series yacht led to the creation of the first FD92, which was delivered to her American owners in November, 2020. Built on spec, the second FD92 has recently launched from the Horizon shipyard in Taiwan, and is currently en route to the US.
One of seven models in the Cor D. Rover- designed FD Series, the FD92 is built upon an extended FD87 hull platform, but is distinguished by a tri-deck design that offers both an interior skylounge and a lightweight carbon fibre flybridge.
From its high-volume interior and expansive windows to its ultra-stable high-performance piercing bow and hull design, the FD92 embodies all of the hallmarks of the pioneering FD Series. The FD92 accommodates a total of five staterooms including a full-beam, on-deck master stateroom with a his-and-hers ensuite and plenty of storage.
Satin Anegre with high-gloss walnut accents and a walnut floor highlight the main deck, which is laid out in a traditional configuration with the main saloon aft and formal dining and galley amidships.
The on-deck master stateroom is situated furthest forward. The main saloon features a dayhead aft, a leather L-shaped sofa with freestanding chairs and a coffee table. Forward, a convertible table can be expanded for formal dining or folded to a sofa table or breakfast bar to maximise space. The fully equipped galley can be separated from the salon via privacy doors and features an artistically-styled hi/Lo island partition for ease of service.
Highlighted with the same satin Anegre finish, the lower deck houses three queen-size en suite staterooms as well as a convertible twin en suite. The engine room, crew quarters and beach club are positioned aft of the guest accommodations. The crew area has been designed with a captain’s cabin and two bunk cabins.
On the upper deck, the enclosed skylounge features a wheelhouse forward and a casual seating area facing a pop-up television and dayhead aft. The boat deck houses an L-shaped bar with icemaker, fridge and fixed stools as well as a Jacuzzi tub with a bartop and three fixed bar stools. The tender is stowed aft and launched/retrieved by the hydraulic Steelhead davit and the entire entertainment area can be shaded by sun shades.
The FD92’s tri-deck design allows for a helm, L-shaped seating, sunpad and a wet bar equipped with a fridge and icemaker to be positioned on the uppermost deck.
Another inviting exterior area has been designed for the foredeck, which features a U-shaped seating area, large sunpad, fridge/icemaker and plenty of storage. This area, too, can be protected with Horizon’s custom shade system.
The wide beach club at the stern offers a sofa and bar area with refrigerator, freezer and barstools, as well as a 32-inch television. The hydraulic hi/lo swim platform offers a 2,000lb capacity and features a built-in shower.
Powered by twin MAN V12 diesels and equipped with Side-Power stabilisers and thrusters, the FD92 offers a smooth ride and an island-friendly draft for cruising throughout the Caribbean and Bahamas.
This new FD92 is scheduled to arrive in the US in January 2021.
