High demand for new build yachts has led to a new Horizon FD80 being sold while in build to an American yacht owner. Nestled between the Horizon FD75 and the FD90 models, the FD80 has carved out a niche among active yacht owners who appreciate the model’s build quality, four-stateroom layout and ample deck areas for lounging and entertaining.
This latest FD80 features an enclosed skylounge configuration with a full-beam master stateroom on the main deck and three guest cabins on the lower deck, with crew quarters for four and a beach club situated aft.
Plentiful deck areas distinguish the FD80 from any competition, and the owner of Hull 5 has customized the skylounge and boat deck layout to accommodate two jet skis aft along with a six-person Jacuzzi with counter seating and a bar area. The foredeck will be fitted with a large sunpad and U-shaped seating with dinettes for enjoying the view at anchor. A large dining table for eight will occupy the main deck aft, while additional dining can be enjoyed at the convertible dining table in the main salon.
Throughout the interior, light anegre wood with walnut highlights is complemented by expansive windows and a light ash flooring for a bright and airy feel. The main salon features a dayhead and seating area with an off-white leather sofa to port and a fold-down television, console and convertible dining table to starboard. The galley is situated forward to port and features privacy glass and a bar area with three stools.
The master stateroom occupies the forwardmost area on the main deck, while two VIP en suites and a convertible twin comprise the lower deck accommodations. The anegre and walnut finish continues throughout these areas as well.
On the topmost deck, the customized enclosed skylounge configuration houses the wheelhouse with twin helm chairs forward and an L-shaped seating area facing a pop-up television and storage just aft.
The owner worked with Horizon’s in-house design team to select a bright and cheerful soft goods package in a theme inspired by the Ginko tree that adds pops of blue, green and coral red hues complemented by decorative forms representing the ocean, earth, passion and geometry, all of which are intended to represent life’s infinite cycle peppered with the unexpected.
After taking delivery in the Fall of 2021, the owner plans to cruise the U.S. East Coast and Caribbean aboard his new yacht.
