Built in Taiwan
Horizon Yachts has unveiled the first pictures of the new 27m yacht named Skyline.
Built at the yard's Taiwanese facility, this vessel is the latest in the Horizon FD range. The yacht is based on the FD85 model.
Exterior styling is the work of Dutch naval architect Cor D Rover, while the in-house team created the interior design. M/Y Skyline has a GRP hull finished in blue, while the GRP superstructure is painted white.
Skyline can accommodate ten guests on board in five staterooms along with a crew of three people. Power is provided by two Caterpillar C18 ACERT diesel engines, each delivering 1,136 hp. Top speed in 16 knots.
A newly popular design for the U.S. market, the FD87 Skyline also features a spacious beach club and swim platform aft, which provides a perfect spot for relaxing close to the water or enjoying watersports activities. Additionally, the FD87 offers a new bow designed called the “High Performance Piercing Bow” (HPPB), which saw across-the-board hydrodynamic improvements in both tank and CFD testing.
