Horizon FD90 Wins Taiwan Excellence Silver Award
The high-volume FD90 is the fourteenth Horizon model to be honored in as many years.
Horizon Yachts has once again received a Taiwan Excellence Award. Presented at the 2023 Taiwan Excellence Awards ceremony on November 23rd, the Horizon FD90 model — the first Horizon model to be equipped with the JUNG automation system — was recognized with a Taiwan Excellence Silver Award. The FD90 is the fourteenth Horizon yacht model to be honored with a Taiwan Excellence Award.
Established by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs in 1993, the Taiwan Excellence Awards recognize innovation and excellence across a variety of industries. Held annually, the awards are presented to nominees who surpass a rigorous selection process that analyzes four major areas including R&D, Design, Quality and Marketing. The qualifying product must also offer Innovative Value while satisfying the key criterion of being Made in Taiwan.
Designed throughout to take advantage of the wide, 23’ 3” beam and high-volume interior that defines the Cor D. Rover-designed Fast Displacement (FD) Series, the FD90 offers a spacious four-stateroom layout with plentiful amenities befitting a luxury superyacht, including an expansive aft deck. This al fresco space features a custom convertible coffee table with strips of bronze inlay that hint at the contemporary Art Deco vibe within the interior.
Satin walnut, black glass and black lacquer finishes highlight the loft-like main salon, whose volume is amplified by floor-to-ceiling windows and comfortable, custom low-profile furniture including a large sofa with built-in storage. Sliding glass doors accessing the walkaround decks to port and starboard invite the outdoors into the dining area forward, and the fully-equipped galley can be open to the salon and dining area or closed via doors and a privacy screen. A custom bronze lighting feature highlights the dining area, and is controlled by the yacht’s JUNG automation system, which allows the owner to control lighting, window treatments, audio and A/C via phone or iPad devices.
The full-beam master stateroom is situated furthest forward on the main deck, and offers plentiful wardrobe space as well as a built-in leather loveseat under the window to starboard. The spacious ensuite features a full-length smart glass wall for privacy when desired.
Three further ensuite staterooms comprised of mirrored queen-size staterooms amidships and a convertible twin/VIP in the bow reside on the lower deck. The lower guest foyer is highlighted by leatherette-covered walls with grooves of black lacquer that echo the yacht’s sophisticated design. A spacious laundry room/storage area complements the staterooms in this area.
This FD90 has been designed with an enclosed skylounge and private wheelhouse configuration, which is accessed via a floating staircase along a painted feature wall. The wheelhouse features three fixed helm chairs and can be closed off from the cozy interior skylounge aft. The boat deck offers a bar with three bar stools and an expansive exterior lounge area with freestanding furniture that is easily shaded with a sun awning. Walkaround side decks access the additional entertaining and lounging space on the foredeck, which can also be shaded by a sun awning.
Offering crew quarters for four aft of the engine room, the new FD90 features a fully equipped beach club with a bar and a lounge settee that converts into a bed.
