Jemily II, a Horizon FD100 tri-deck yacht, is mere weeks from arriving stateside. Shortly after her arrival, the owners will embark on their first season aboard.
The first FD100 for U.S. customers, the megayacht is actually hull number two in the series. The owners are from Florida and are well-versed in cruising and ownership. This project, though, does mark the first time they’ve collaborated with Horizon. They decided to commission their own Horizon FD100 tri-deck (an enclosed uppermost bridge is another layout option) because of the sense of volume. Since the owners often cruise with friends and family, they felt confident they could do a good deal of entertaining onboard.
Among the special requests they made, the aft deck has a flip-down, 65-inch TV opposite a full bar. The aft deck also has a big seating area with a hi-lo table, accommodating everything from breakfast to cocktails. Particularly worth noting, the aft deck also has four rod holders, since the owners enjoy wetting a line. More fishing gear and an ice-fed fishbox are in the beach club.
Inside, meanwhile, Jemily II has even more special touches for the full owners’ party of 10 to appreciate. A stunning chandelier accentuates the dining area, for instance, while a hand-cut glass partition with a splashed-ink design separates it from the galley when wanted. Since the owners appreciate wine, they have a wine chiller with glass stowage to starboard in the dining area, too.
Other interior areas prioritize entertaining guests, too. The skylounge particularly will see a lot of activity. An 85-inch television is here for enjoying not just movies but also video games. Yet another settee with a hi-lo table and a bar complement the room. Up one deck, the owners eliminated the helm station—something the owners of hull number one kept. Instead, they created more alfresco space for dining, with other parts of the deck dedicated to sunning.
Finally, when their Horizon FD100 tri-deck yacht is at anchor, plenty of watertoys and water activities are at their fingertips. Besides the already-mentioned fishing gear, the beach club has space for dive compressors, dive gear, and two Montague foldable e-bikes. Jemily II will tow a tender, too.
Look for Jemily II to pursue Bahamian cruising, especially in the Abacos, this spring.
