First look at the Horizon FD87 luxury motor yacht SKYLINE

Taiwan based Horizon Yachts shipyard released new images of their 27.46m luxury fast-displacement motor yacht SKYLINE joining the FD87 series. Penned by Cor D. Rover naval architects from the Netherlands responsible for exterior and interior styling this modern 90 footer. The most eye-catching features is the high-performance piercing bow (HPPB), a stunning blue turquoise hull in contrast to a white GRP superstructure and the beach club with the opening transom at the aft. 

Horizon FD87 SKYLINE yacht also scores with its superb sundeck being the reason why this model got the SKYLINE suffix. A large skylounge adjacent to the raised foredeck, spa pool, aft deck for lounging and alfresco dining with plenty of space – all this can be found on this upper deck making it our favorite social area of this luxury motor yacht. Accommodation has been ensured for up to 10 guests in one master, 3 double and one twin bed cabin with 3 more berths secured for the yacht crew. The saloon features floor-to-ceiling windows and a large dining area.

Instead of the raised pilothouse found on the FD85 the FD87 design leans to, the owner of the Horizon FD87 SKYLINE requested a fully enclosed bridge with a helm station to provide additional indoor entertaining and lounging options allowing also an extended boating season during colder seasons on board. The bridge has access to a Portuguese walkway leading forward to the bow and a seating area.

Power will come from twin 1.136hp Caterpillar C18 Acert engines propelling 10 knots of cruising speed and a top speed of 16 knots. Here the high-performance piercing bow is worth to be mentioned as alternative bow designs feature protrusions work more efficiently at either high or slower speeds, the HPPB, however, brings both efficiency at slower speeds, and performance at higher speeds the shipyard says.
