FD87 Skyline motoryacht is a brand new addition to Horizon’s Fast Displacement series, whose design was inspired by one client’s lifestyle request.
Springing from the eye-catching FD85, the new Horizon FD87 Skyline retains many of the FD85’s unique features, including the expansive 23’3” beam, spacious on-deck Master with four guest staterooms and two crew cabins below deck, and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows in the salon. In place of the raised pilothouse in the FD85, the FD87 Skyline boasts a fully enclosed bridge with access to a Portuguese walkway leading forward to the bow and an inviting seating area.
A newly popular design for the U.S. market, the FD87 Skyline also features a spacious beach club and swim platform aft, which provides a perfect spot for relaxing close to the water or enjoying watersports activities.
Additionally, the FD87 offers a new bow designed called the “High Performance Piercing Bow” (HPPB), which saw across-the-board hydrodynamic improvements in both tank and CFD testing. While alternative bow designs that feature protrusions work more efficiently at either high or slower speeds, the HPPB brings both efficiency at slower speeds and performance at higher speeds.
“The evolution of this enclosed bridge FD87 and the speed with which it all came together represents a true partnership between the client, the architect and the shipyard,” says Horizon CEO John Lu. “Horizon’s new High Performance Piercing Bow coupled with an enclosed bridge and collaborative design between Cor D. Rover and the Horizon Yachts team leaves nothing to be desired in both form and function.”
The FD87 Skyline will be fitted with stabilizers, CAT C18s of 1136hp each, and a 3,480 gallon fuel capacity that will yield a nearly 2,000nm range at 9 knots.
