Solid presence in Australia
Despite less-than-ideal weather conditions, the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show welcomed over 44,000 visitors. The Horizon Yacht Australia display was bustling with guests eager to tour the new FD75, FD80 and FD90 yachts.
The calibre of visitors and consistency of repeat clients touring the yachts was but one testament to the presence that HYAUS now enjoys in the market - the other being the record number of Horizon yachts sold in the region in the last year.
“It is clear that the Horizon FD Series answers the market’s demand for style, space and performance that traditional motor yachts can not accommodate,” says Horizon Yacht Australia director Mark Western. “The FD yachts were definitely the talk of the show, with guests comparing the interior space of these yachts to that of 100ft+ superyachts.”
The Horizon Yacht Australia team capped off the show by hosting their annual Horizon Owners’ dinner and this year added an Inaugural Ladies’ Luncheon that will surely be a highly anticipated event for future shows. Following the show, the team is working on custom new builds and reports serious interest in the FD80 Skyline.
