Horizon Yachts launches second FD75

by Horizon Yachts 21 Oct 07:16 PDT

Following the world debut of the very first FD75 model in January 2020, a brand new FD75 has launched from the Horizon Vision Shipyard. Designed for the American market, Hull Two of this entry-level model has completed sea trials and will soon make its highly-anticipated U.S. debut.

Taking its place at the entrance of the acclaimed Cor D. Rover-designed FD Series, the FD75 model is itself a remarkable achievement in terms of design and naval architecture. Designed to appeal to serious owner/operators, the FD75 features a raised pilothouse configuration that accommodates both an open bridge and a lower helm area within a 20' 4" (6.2m) beam.

This latest FD75 offers a four-stateroom layout, with a full-beam master on the main deck and three additional staterooms on the lower deck. Quarters for two crew are situated aft of the engine room.

Boarding the yacht from the aft deck, which is outfitted with a large built-in sofa and freestanding furnishings, the open layout and impressive volume of the FD75 is readily apparent. Fully opening glass doors provide access to the main salon where large, uninterrupted windows enhance the feeling of openness. Complimentary two-toned white and silver oak wood punctuated by grey and blue soft goods, grey mirrors and slatted wood design elements complete the "sea of serenity" ambience throughout.

This FD75 showcases a galley-aft configuration, which allows for the entire aft portion of the main deck to operate as one large entertaining space. Situated to starboard, the galley is fully equipped with SubZero freezer drawers and a separate icemaker, and a wine cooler is fitted just forward.

To port, a convertible dining table provides added flexibility, serving as either a formal dining table or a casual breakfast bar. A fixed U-shaped leather sofa is joined by a coffee table with storage and faces a cabinet hiding the pop-up rotating television designed to minimize interference with the views.

Forward, the full-beam master stateroom enjoys private access from the main deck and features seating and a vanity as well as hanging lockers and dual basins in the en suite. On the lower deck, a full-beam midship ensuite VIP is accompanied by a single-bed stateroom to port that offers additional storage closets and cabinets. A convertible twin stateroom is opposite to starboard. A shared en suite serving the single and twin staterooms is situated in the companionway along with a washer/dryer and additional storage.

Providing a secondary option for navigation at night or in inclement weather, the semi-raised pilothouse is situated within steps of the master stateroom and is highlighted in black vinyl and carbon accents.

Accessed either via the starboard exterior staircase or from the internal pilothouse, the open flybridge is a spacious and inviting area. Offering a day head, a television, a built-in bar with fixed stools, built-in seating, a BBQ and freezer, this lovely al fresco space echoes the serene color scheme and slatted wood design elements found on the lower deck. The boat deck aft comfortably stores the tender, which is launched and retrieved by the Steelhead davit. Dual helm chairs facilitate navigation, and dual bump-outs to port and starboard assist with docking operations. Forward, a full sunpad and seating area invite relaxation on the foredeck.

Designed with the yard's proprietary High-Performance Piercing Bow and hull design that affords optimal comfort and performance, this latest FD75 is powered by twin Caterpillar C18 ACERTs of 1,136bhp. The FD75 Hull Two is on schedule to deliver to the U.S. in early December.
