Horizon Unveils a New FD80, Its Second AMSA 2C Compliant Yacht in Australia – Marine Business News

Horizon Yachts have announced the arrival of the twelfth addition to its coveted FD80 series. This latest FD80 has a distinctive character of its own.

A Layout That Speaks Volumes

Expansive floor-to-ceiling glass sections grace the main deck, immediately imparting a warm, serene and natural light-filled ambience. Built to meet the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) 2C inspection requirements, this versatile layout caters to both private and charter use.

Refined Opulence

The modern linear style continues in the salon, where a combination of dark koto wood and a batten roof with black grooves is complemented by the modular design of the coffee tables and dual-purpose dining side tables that allow for flexible use of the space.

Forward of the salon area, the open galley merges with a flexible dining area featuring a broad center island with a bar counter and three chairs. An electric drop-down panel separates the island and most of the galley view from the salon when desired, allowing for open interaction between guests and the chef or complete privacy.

The master suite spans the full beam of the forwardmost section of the main deck and epitomizes minimalist chic. A skylight with electric blinds over the bed provides additional natural light and visual interest to the space. Set behind a TV wall, the upgraded bathroom includes an electric-heated towel rack for added comfort.

Accessed from the lower deck foyer, three ensuite staterooms comprise mirrored VIPs amidships and a forward VIP in the bow, which features a V-berth with rotating beds that can be joined to form a queen or separated as two twins depending on guest needs.

Contemporary Accents Throughout

Forward of the enclosed wheelhouse, which features three helm chairs and a raised dinette, the forward bow area is fitted with a U-shaped dinette and sunpads.

The split-use skylounge and bridge deck aft will undoubtedly take center stage for many festive gatherings. To port, a sumptuous U-shaped sofa is accompanied by a dining table that can be expanded to suit the number of guests. At the center of the deck, a heated Jacuzzi sports its own bar counter with three stools. This exterior area is shaded by outdoor awnings for maximum comfort.

For those who enjoy bridge cruising, this FD80 boasts a hydraulic folding radar mast design. The thoughtfully planned ceiling can also accommodate a one-ton helicopter landing, making this yacht ideal for those seeking the ultimate in yachting adventures.
