Horizon Yacht has announced the launch a unique three-stateroom custom FD90 motoryacht. Commissioned by a Horizon E88 owner looking to upgrade, the FD90 features a number of customisations to suit the owners who cruise with their three dogs.
The yard’s willingness to consider, engineer and accommodate requests for customization is among the many reasons that experienced owners return to Horizon time and again to build their next dream yacht.
The customer approached the yard directly to design and build a yacht based on the FD Series’ voluminous profile and hull form that would suit his family’s onboard lifestyle. The custom FD90 features a three cabin layout, with all three cabins located on the lower deck to free up the main deck for entertaining.
Accommodation customisations have also been made for the owners’ dogs, which include a special windowsill ledge in the dinette area for the dogs to sit on.
The most dramatic departure from the standard FD Series main deck layout is found forward, where the owners specified a large galley/country kitchen configuration in the space normally accommodating an on-deck master stateroom.
The country kitchen area features a built-in dinette and working desk overlooked by a skylight with motorized blinds.
On the upper deck, the pilothouse and enclosed skylounge features dual helm chairs, a fixed L-shaped settee and hi/lo sliding table top dinette and a dayhead.
The foredeck features a sunpad and Jacuzzi and barriers have been erected around the deck to enable the owners’ dogs to run around safely.
Speaking about the yacht, the owner said: “Horizon’s willingness to modify their design is limited only by your imagination and your pocketbook. Our dogs also played into the design and Horizon made numerous modifications to keep them safe aboard while cruising.”
Powered by dual CAT engines of 1,136hp each, this custom FD90 holds 3,480 U.S. gallons of fuel. She is on schedule to deliver to her owners in early November 2020.
