Hull No. 3 of the new FD85 is the first model of the four-model series to arrive in the United States.

The new FD85 from Horizon Yachts will make its U.S. debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

The company said hull No. 3 is the first model of the four-model series to arrive in the United States. Designed in a collaboration between yacht designer Cor D. Rover and Horizon’s in-house naval architecture team, the FD series also includes the FD74, FD85, FD87 Skyline, and FD102 models.

Appearing at Dock F from slips 600-606 and 19-19A, the Horizon FD85 will be docked alongside five other Horizon yachts: the RP120 superyacht; the brand new RP110 superyacht; the award-winning E88 motoryacht; and the PC60 and PC52 power catamaran models.

The company said the FD85 has a unique exterior styling that maximizes the use of glass, such as the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors in the main salon. The FD85 also features Horizon’s new high-performance piercing bow, designed for performance and stability.
