Horizon Yacht’s FD75 and FD102 debuted at the boatbuilder’s biennial Horizon Open House in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in mid-January. The builder says it’s also working on its FD125.

With a raised-pilothouse design, the FD75 and its 20-foot, 4-inch beam have an open bridge and a lower helm area. Horizon Yachts’ models are customizable, and, to that end, the FD75 can be set up with a three- or four-stateroom layout, both including a full-beam, on-deck master stateroom with en suite head and walk-in closets. Crew are situated aft, accommodating two.

One of the primary optional features is a beach club aft. Passengers can enter the beach club with air conditioning, a refrigerator/ice-maker, an L-shaped lounge, a wet bar with a sink and additional stowage via an electric stern door.

Other options include adding a dayhead, moving the main-deck galley and salon aft or amidships (to port or starboard), creating built-in seating and adding exterior bars on the aft deck and the flybridge.

Twin 1,136 bhp Caterpillar C18 Acert diesels power the FD75. Fuel capacity is 2,400 gallons.

The FD102 enters the market as the first 100-plus-footer in the builder’s FD series. Like the FD75, the FD102 is highly customizable. From adding a sauna/spa room to reducing the size of the skylounge for an extended deck or adding extra stowage and a dinette to the galley, each of the FD102’s first three hulls have different layouts, reflecting their owners’ desires.

This FD102 also has an on-deck master stateroom with his-and-hers sinks and en suite head and shower forward. There’s also a four-stateroom layout belowdecks and accommodations for six crew members.

The FD102 is powered by twin 1,600 hp Caterpillar C32 Acert diesels. Fuel capacity is 4,500 gallons.
