Developed in collaboration designer Cor D. Rover and Horizon’s in-house naval architecture team, the 85ft fast displacement motoryacht features a High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB).
With its uniquely styled exterior and innovative interior layout designed to maximize the FD85’s expansive volume and 23’3” beam, this yacht has been purposely designed to offer a variety of areas for entertainment and relaxation.
Reminiscent of a villa on the sea, the main saloon is highlighted by large sections of floor-to-ceiling windows. The master stateroom features extra-wide windows and a skylight, while four additional staterooms are located below.
Hull two boasts an open bridge that includes a hardtop roof with a retractable sunroof, a helm station, L-shaped settee, BBQ grill and a wet bar with four bar stools. A Jacuzzi tub and a 46in lift-up television are shaded with a sun awning. The aft deck area on the main deck can seat 10-12 people.

She is also equipped with stabilisers, hi-lo swim platform and a gangway.
