+24 years Horizon Yachts in Europe
Ruth and Ron Boogaard’s collaboration with Horizon Yachts began in 1993, when Ron and his parents-in-law traveled to Taiwan, where they visited nearly twenty different shipyards in one week. Finally, they placed the first order for 3 new yachts at Horizon Yachts. This was followed by more than 200 yachts built by Horizon.
At the same time, Ruth and Ron Boogaard decided to relocate to Mallorca, where they founded their own company, based in Port Andratx, in 1994. Since then, they have been responsible for the sale and service of Horizon Yachts in the Mediterranean. This laid the foundation for a successful cooperation with the Horizon Yachts company since more than 25 years.
Today, Ron and his team continue to work closely with the Horizon Shipyard, and Horizon Yacht Europe is the Horizon Yachts head office in Europe, providing full service to European customers in sales, service and aftersales.
Horizon FD-Series: A Global Trendsetter
In a collaboration between Horizon Yachts and renowned designer Cor D. Rover, the FD Series encompasses the ultimate in versatile fast displacement motoryachts. Emphasizing style, volume, and functional design, the FD models combine modern flair with flexible living and entertaining areas comparable to much larger yachts.
What began with the stylish FD85, turned into a highly successful series. Horizon developed the FD85 Open Bridge model and then the FD Skyline series, that includes the FD77, FD87, FD102 and FD125 Skyline to satisfy the growing global demand for innovative, high quality luxury yachts. Since the launch of the first FD85 in 2016, 7 yachts of the FD series have been delivered, and another 6 yachts are currently under construction.
One of the core values of the FD Series is Horizon’s innovative High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB). Designed by the Horizon engineering team in consultation with Cor D. Rover, the HPPB, in conjunction with the hybrid hull shape and tunnel design, delivers a shallow draft, more comfortable cruising, lower resistance and excellent stability.
Contemporary style lines, creative interior spaces, tremendous interior volume, and flexible cruising speeds – these are the core features of the Horizon FD85 fast displacement motoryacht. The FD85’s exterior and interior layouts were designed to take full advantage of the volume provided by her 7.07m beam, with separate areas for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the surroundings. A total of five en-suite staterooms are on board – a full-beam, on-deck master stateroom and four guest staterooms below deck – as well as crew quarters aft.
Springing from the eye-catching FD85, the FD87 Skyline retains many of the FD85’s unique features. The enclosed bridge provides additional indoor entertaining and lounging areas while allowing for an extended boating season in colder climates. With a new beach-club design aft, it is a true innovation in design and function, creating a comfortable, informal oasis to enjoy the views, soaking up the sun, or simply relaxing on the water-side. Whether relaxing with friends and family, enjoying water sports activities or hosting a formal dinner party, the FD87 provides the flexibility for you and your family to be together – as well as to find that secluded space to sit back and become a part of the cruising experience.
With the new FD77 Skyline, Horizon Yachts adds an owner/operator model to the fast displacement series. Contemporary style lines, a smart layout, and expansive interior and exterior entertaining areas are the heart of this design from Cor D. Rover and Horizon. Incorporating the same sought-after features that characterize the FD series, such as large sections of floor-to-ceiling windows, an expansive 7m beam, and a striking exterior profile that presides atop Horizon’s High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB) hull design, the compact FD77 has been purposely designed for owner operation. A truly cutting-edge motoryacht with amenities of a megayacht, the new Horzion FD77 Skyline, available in Open Bridge or Enclosed Bridge version, transforms the cruising experience of your dreams into reality.
The first superyacht in Horizon’s popular FD Series, the new Horizon FD102 Skyline represents the next generation of luxury superyachts with stylish exterior lines, impressive interior volume, and large outdoor spaces. A 7.37m beam with double salons, an on-deck deluxe master stateroom, and a spacious four-stateroom layout offers all-around luxury and comfort on board. The walkaround design around the enclosed bridge allows privacy for the interior spaces as well as intuitive spatial flow between outdoor entertaining areas. The construction of the new Horizon FD102 Skyline luxury yacht has started and she will make her debut in 2020.
Similar in concept to the other models in the FD Series, the FD125 features large windows on the main deck and flybridge, bringing abundant natural light into the interior spaces. The enhanced interior volume houses double salons, a spacious galley and a full-beam, on-deck deluxe master stateroom, as well as four en-suite staterooms on the lower level, as well as accommodations for a crew of eight persons. The immense and multifunctional alfresco areas are the ideal places, either for private family gathering of for parties with friends. The FD125 is the perfect combination of a true ocean-going yacht and a luxurious beach house for outdoor enthusiasts who want to spend a luxurious and comfortable vacation with family and friends. The new Horizon FD125 Skyline is currently in her conceptual design stage, and more details will be available soon.
