Founded in 2005, Premier Yacht was originally dedicated to the construction of custom megayachts of 100 feet (30M) and above, but a new business strategy in 2013 changed the focus of the facility from new construction to refit and repair. The Premier shipyard now focuses on yacht maintenance and repair and refit of 100-foot plus (30M ) yachts.
Premier's 258,330sqft facility can simultaneously accommodate six yachts of 120 feet (40M) and above under cover. The yard also owns 656 feet (200M) of waterfront property as well as an automatic float on/off launch barge with a 650-ton lifting capacity for yachts which L.O.A less than 200 feet (60M), beam 45 feet (13.4M), gives Premier a logistical advantage for sea trials, commissioning, and loading completed yachts to be delivered on board container/bulk ships. Thanks to its ideal geographical location on Kaohsiung Harbor, the Premier shipyard has also been designated as the delivery center for Horizon yachts.
With 180 employees that include experienced naval architects, marine engineers and a technical team, the Premier shipyard is certified with OHSAS 18001 - the Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series for health and safety management systems – that ensures safer working environments for employees; Horizon Group was the first yacht builder to be endorsed with this certification in Asia.
