As one of the 10th largest yacht builders in the world, Horizon has become an increasingly well-known semi-custom, high quality yacht builder up to 163 feet in the American Market. Throughout Europe and Asia, Horizon is recognized as having a popular line of yachts, and previous production has been sold almost exclusively in the demanding European yachting market, where Horizon competes successfully.
Since 1987, Horizon has built over 400 yachts in an in-house, state-of-the-art facility located in Taiwan, where 1100 employees dedicate their entire careers solely to yacht building. Collaboration with yacht designers Juan Carlos “JC” Espinosa, John Lindblohm and naval architect Greg Marshall has ensured that Horizon’s yachts are built to each customer’s needs and specifications. Horizon also takes extra steps in their manufacturing process to ensure seaworthiness in all the yachts they build by using the SCRIMP™ resin-infusion molding process. SCRIMP, or Seaman Composites Resin Infusion Molding Process, is a process originally developed by the U.S. Navy and tested by the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center and adds a level of strength, durability and consistency, while reducing overall weight. Essentially, SCRIMP is the evolution of the vacuum bag lamination process that more precisely controls resin levels and eliminates air pockets, which tend to form during traditional hand lay-up.
Horizon is committed to continual growth in the yachting industry, and offers customers seven series to satisfy various lifestyles: AquaCat, Bandido, Elegance, Premier, Tournament, SunCat and Vision.
