Horizon Yachts has recently launched their new 27-meter Skyline as part of their Fast Displacement series in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The new model, set to now start sea trials, will go on display at the 2018 Palm Beach International Boat Show with Horizon's American dealership.Cor D. Rover, who designed the Fast Displacement series in partnership with Horizon’s in-house naval architecture team, opted for a distinctive blue hull coupled with a contrasting white superstructure with an enclosed bridge as well as Horizon’s new High Performance Piercing Bow (HPPB).Springing from the eye-catching FD85, the FD87 Skyline retains many of the FD85’s unique features, including an expansive 7 meter beam, spacious master suite on the main deck with four further guest staterooms and two crew cabins on the lower deck, and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows in the salon and dining areas inviting an abundance of natural light within the interior.In place of the raised pilothouse found on the FD85, the FD87 Skyline boasts a fully enclosed bridge with access to a Portuguese walkway leading forward to the bow and an inviting seating area. The enclosed bridge provides additional indoor entertaining and lounging areas while allowing for an extended boating season in colder climates. 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.In its continuous pursuit of improvement, the Horizon team will debut a new bow design described as a “High Performance Piercing Bow” (HPPB), this design saw across-the-board hydrodynamic improvements in both tank and CFD testing. While alternative bow designs that feature protrusions work more efficiently at either high or slower speeds, the HPPB brings both efficiency at slower speeds and performance at higher speeds. “The evolution of this enclosed bridge FD87 and the speed with which it all came together represents a true partnership between the client, the architect and the shipyard,” says Horizon CEO John Lu. “Horizon’s new High Performance Piercing Bow coupled with an enclosed bridge and collaborative design between Cor D. Rover and the Horizon Yachts team leaves nothing to be desired in both form and function.”Skyline is fitted with stabilizers, CAT C18s of 1136hp each, and a 3,480 gallon fuel capacity that will yield a nearly 2,000nm range at 9 knots.

The 47-meter Benetti, Africa, previously on the market through Burgess at an asking price of €16,750,000, has now been sold with Marine Marketing in Greece introducing the buyer. She spent just under 18 months on the brokerage market.Africa, Benetti's FB501 hull, was launched in Italy in 2010 and christened Imagination by her original owner. Two years later, she was put on the market through Camper & Nicholsons asking €22,000,000. Later that year, her price was reduced down to €19,800,000. Following two yacht show attendances by the yacht during her first year on the market, in Cannes and in Monaco, a buyer was found that purchased the yacht in 2014. The yacht was then asking €16,5 million through Camper. Her new owners then opted to rename the yacht to Africa shortly after the purchase. In 2016, she was listed for sale once again, this time through Fraser, asking €19,750,000. The seller later switched to being represented by Burgess and later lowered the asking price by €3 million, at which price she ultimately sold earlier this month.This report is an excerpt from Yacht Harbour's proprietary Timeline platform, featuring detailed, individual reports on every single yacht on the water.
