Horizon Yachts 2022 Year Review
As 2022 has come to an end and we welcome the New Year, Horizon Yachts reflects on the success of 2022 and look forward to the promise of an active and prosperous 2023.
The year heralded a steady flow of sales and deliveries, with both new and existing Horizon clients calling meetings to discuss customizing their next dream yacht. Horizon delivered over 20 new-build yachts including 13 FDs ranging from 75 to 110 feet to clients worldwide in 2022.
At the same time, Horizon Yachts invested $15M in a yard expansion to both increase and streamline production. In addition to the new facility, in early 2022 the yard completed construction on a new materials warehouse and a brand-new office building to accommodate the factory management department.
Horizon also upgraded its CNC (Computer Numerical Control Milling) System, which enables the exquisite lines of each Horizon yacht to be constructed efficiently, economically and artistically. These benefits are then passed along to the yacht owner.
In-person events returned to near pre-pandemic levels as Horizon partners displayed the latest Horizon yacht builds in the global boat shows. Three global Owners Rendezvous were also hosted in 2022, including the Horizon Yacht USA Abacos Rendezvous, the Horizon Power Catamarans Rendezvous and the Horizon Yacht Australia Airlie Beach Rendezvous. It brings the entire Horizon family great joy to see so many Horizon owners joined together to share their build experiences and cruising stories.
Our achievements continued to be recognized in 2022, with the FD90 model winning a Taiwan Excellence Silver Award. Most notably, this year our founder and CEO John Lu was honored with the IBI 2022 Boat Builder Awards’ Lifetime Achievement Award.
All of the activity for 2022 has not waned and as the days march into 2023, the Horizon Yachts team worldwide is preparing for an exceptionally busy new year with an already full schedule and production lineup in place. Diverse Horizon yacht models will be sold to each of the major global markets including Europe, the U.S., Australia and Asia.
In the New Year, Horizon plans to continue its commitment to exceeding the expectations of all clients. The entire team is deeply appreciative of the strong Horizon family that is gathering worldwide and looks forward to another year of defining owners’ dreams.
