Horizon Yachts has announced the launch of the latest hull in its fast displacement series: the 28.36-metre FD92 yacht Crowned Eagle, now due to be delivered to her experienced American owner in October following sea trials.
As the Series' first ever tri-deck design, Crowned Eagle features both an interior pilothouse and an open flybridge designed by Cor D. Rover. The design for the vessel stems from her experienced owner's request for a configuration change to the FD87 layout, incorporating both a protected interior helm station and the option for al fresco navigation through a lightweight carbon fibre flybridge.
On board, she accommodates guests across five staterooms, with an on-deck master and four additional staterooms on the lower deck, with a crew of three also housed on board.
The foredeck comes complete with a six-person Jacuzzi, curved seating and sunpads. For when the sun is too intense, guests can also make the most of the custom foredeck shade system, or retreat to the enclosed skylounge.
Guests can also make the most of numerous entertainment and relaxation areas, including the beach club and the fully equipped bar on the main deck. The aft deck offers formal dining for up to 10, with a bar found starboard and a large sofa aft.
Notably, the superstructure design led to a proportionate hull modification, giving her an LOA of 28.36 metres and allowing her spacious beach club/swim platform and watersports area to be extended.
In addition, the platform has a capacity of 2,500lb and includes a separate section which rises and lowers to enable easy toy launching and facilitating water access.
Power to Crowned Eagle is provided by twin Caterpillar C-32 ACERT 1,900hp engines, with plans for her to provide island-friendly cruising throughout the Caribbean and Bahamas for her new owners.
Crowned Eagle is currently on schedule to arrive in the US in late October, after which she will be commissioned and delivered to her owners. In addition, a second FD92 is also in build and is due for delivery to the US in early 2021, according to Horizon.
