  1. Horizon FD85 European Debut At Cannes Yachting Festival
    Taiwan-based yacht company Horizon Yachts announced they will be giving the FD85 model its European debut at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival later in September (12th to the 17th). The second hull in the series is slated to make the debut as it is tailor-made for the European client-base. Developed in collaboration between world-renowned yacht designer Cor D. Rover and Horizon’s in-house naval architecture team, this 85’ advanced fast displacement motoryacht features superior cruising capabilities that complement living and entertaining spaces comparable to 100-foot-plus megayachts. Immediately striking in appearance thanks to its thoughtful exterior styling, the new European FD85 incorporates an advanced hull form dubbed the High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB). The HPPB design allows for excellent seakeeping at both slow and high speeds and, when augmented by the yacht’s stabilization system, affords a sublimely comfortable cruising experience.
  2. Reminiscent of a villa on the sea, the main salon is highlighted by large sections of floor-to-ceiling windows, which immediately convey a sense of being at one with the outdoors while bringing in natural light and panoramic views. Designed to maximize the views and natural light afforded by the exterior styling, the master stateroom features extra-wide windows and a skylight for even more light, while four additional staterooms below continue the bright and airy feel. The European version of the FD85 has MAN diesels powering it. A pair of MAN 1200 horse power engines and a fuel capacity of 3,480 gallons are on board. Her top speed is estimated at 16.5-knots and she offers a 1,262 nautical mile range at an 11-knot cruise. If you want to check her out at the Cannes Yachting Festival then she will be at -in water- stand SYE035.
