Interior of the FD Skyline Issimo is revealed

by Horizon Yachts 6 Jul 2023 07:58 PDT

Horizon Yachts' expert guidance and the option for customization attracted experienced American boaters to embark on their first yacht build project. They appreciated the space and volume afforded by the FD Series design and based their custom yacht on a mid-size FD model in terms of layout and length.

The owners' Italian heritage led to the name choice, Issimo. As the owners explained, the Italian suffix "Issimo" is an intensifier used to enhance a word's meaning, making it remarkable. This custom FD Series yacht offered the ability to have an owner-specific design throughout. On the main deck aft, the owners opted to remove the standard staircase on the starboard side to allow for a wet bar. Private access to the crew quarters and engine room is situated to port while dual stairs to either side of the freestanding dining/lounge area lead to the large Hi/Lo swim platform and fully equipped beach club with multi-functional seating behind a hydraulic transom door. Accessed through the beach club or the dedicated stairway on the aft deck, the crew quarters are well-planned and comprise a double cabin, bunk cabin and full en suite.

Beyond the sliding glass doors on the aft deck, the salon exudes a warm and sophisticated feel, with beautiful walnut grey wood tones and Mid-Century modern furniture sourced by the owners. The lounging space with a liquor and glassware cabinet are situated to port, while a dayhead and entertainment area with built-in television are found to starboard.

A low built-in china cabinet separates the salon from the dining area, where a fixed table seats ten just aft of the spacious galley. The galley can be closed off from the salon and dining area for privacy and is well equipped with full-size refrigerator/freezers, a pull-out coffee station and plenty of counter and storage space.

A hallmark of the FD Series, the full-beam master stateroom is positioned furthest forward on this deck. This space offers an overhead skylight that adds to the natural light afforded by the large windows. A raised workstation is built in to starboard while an inviting chaise lounge occupies the space beneath the portside windows. The ensuite features dual wash basins to center, with a WC closet to port and a shower room to starboard.

The owners opted for a four-stateroom layout to allow for three large VIP cabins and a bespoke combined laundry and storage room on the lower deck. Mirrored VIP en suites are positioned amidships with a forward VIP in the bow. The laundry room is positioned off the port side of the lower foyer and accompanies the equipment and storage with pull-out refrigeration.

Issimo was designed with a Skyline configuration, which offers a wheelhouse with three helm chairs and a seating/dining area within the enclosed section of the bridge deck, while a spacious boat deck aft comprises a full bar, L-shaped seating and dining, and a large Jacuzzi tub with a backlit waterfall feature. The aft portion of the boat deck offers plenty of space for freestanding lounge chairs or tender stowage with a davit to starboard. Another entertaining area is specified for the foredeck, which feature refrigeration, storage and a spacious seating and lounging area.

Issimo made her debut at the 2023 Palm Beach International Boat Show after which her owners embarked on their travels which will include Florida, The Bahamas and the Northeast.
