Horizon Yachts is once again the recipient of the “Best Asian Yacht Builder” award. It is the yard’s 14th consecutive win at the annual Asia Boating Awards ceremony, which was held on April 10, 2019 in Singapore. Horizon has now been honored with the prestigious “Best Asian Yacht Builder” award 13 times.
The Horizon Yachts Showcase was the place to be during the 2019 Palm Beach Boat Show. The Horizon stand was bustling with world-renown designers, journalists, and prominent yacht brokers with clients in tow. The buzz centered around not one, but five fabulous Horizon yachts gracing the display, which included the brand new FD87 Skyline, unique V68, and debuting FD77 model.
Less than six months after a contract was signed for the first Horizon FD102 to a European owner, the second hull has been sold, with completion estimated for April of 2020. Accommodating a voluminous interior within a 7.37m beam, the FD102 is the first superyacht model in the acclaimed Fast Displacement Series.
Situated in Kaohsiung’s Qijin District, the Horizon Refit and Maintenance Center has had its bays full of late, performing refits, maintenance, and other services on megayachts from around the world. Some of the vessels, which range from 120 to 163 feet in length, are repeat customers, but most are newcomers.
Horizon Yachts is pleased to announce that two new build superyachts have completed tank testing in this month. The two new RP110 superyachts are both slated for delivery to their respective third-time owners in April. We are honored to have been entrusted once again to provide our proven R&D and naval architecture expertise for these exciting projects.
As the brand-new Horizon FD102 Skyline nears completion, we invite you to an online experience aboard this first “superyacht” of the Fast Displacement Series. At an overall length of 107 feet, the new FD102 Skyline offers a wide 24’ 9” beam and expansive outdoor spaces accessed by a unique walkaround deck design.
Designed in collaboration with Cor D. Rover, Horizon’s Fast Displacement (FD) Series of motoryachts and superyachts is nothing short of head-turning, thanks in part to the oversized windows, voluminous interior, and well-planned entertaining spaces wrapped in a stylish package. While the exterior styling of this pioneering series attracts attention, it is the hull platform and proprietary bow design that sets the series apart from similarly-styled yachts.
Nine sunny days marked the 2019 Seattle Boat Show. The largest in-water boat show on the West Coast, the annual Seattle Boat Show is an important event for Horizon, who traditionally unveils a new yacht at the show each year. This year it was hull two of the new Jonathan Quinn Barnett-designed Horizon V68 that stole the show, and guests were invited aboard by Horizon partners Emerald Pacific Yachts.
