20 May 2021


A limited-edition design from the Cor D. Rover Signature Series, the latest FD87 features a five-stateroom layout with a beach garage and touch-and-go helipad.

Horizon Yachts has launched yet another build from its highly acclaimed Fast Displacement (FD) Series of high-volume motor yachts.

Built on ‘spec’ and designed for the Australian market, the FD87 Hull 18 features a five-stateroom layout with a beach garage and touch-and-go helipad among its many amenities.

The yacht not only features the Rover-designed FD Series exterior styling, but also a custom-designed interior penned at the hands of the Dutch designer.

This new FD87 Skyline features a five-stateroom layout with an on-deck master with a full-beam his-and-her ensuite, crew quarters for three and a beach garage and Hi/Lo swim platform.

A predominance of satin walnut maintains a modern feel throughout, while a walnut sole perfectly complements the satin white oak accents and Carrara marble surfaces in the main saloon.


Here, a handmade designer chandelier serves as a focal point for the space and augments the yacht’s 23-foot 3-inch beam.

A dayhead is positioned aft to accommodate the main deck’s interior and exterior areas and a custom, convertible dining table with a stone top seats ten for formal dining.

This build features a semi-enclosed skylounge with a newly designed micro bridge, so as to accommodate a larger exterior boat deck with an indoor/outdoor entertaining area and tender storage aft.

Four ensuite guest staterooms are situated on the lower deck, and include mirrored queen-size VIPs amidships, a convertible twin to port and a fourth queen-size VIP in the bow.

The spacious beach garage offers a huge storage cupboard and a massive fridge-freezer storage for long haul cruising.

The lightweight hardtop doubles as a touch-and-go helipad and includes a hydraulic telescopic radar arch. The alfresco space is protected by sliding glass enclosures to either side and is fitted with a U-shaped dinette, a large bar area with stools and a barbecue grill.

On the foredeck, a large U-shaped settee faces a heated jacuzzi and the large sunpads. This area can also be shaded with awnings and offers refrigeration for added convenience.

The latest FD87 Skyline is powered by twin CAT C32A diesels of 1,600hp each and fitted with ZeroSpeed stabilisation.

The FD87 will make her Australian debut in late May 2021.
