    March 21, 2008:Horizon Premier Shipyard: To enhance customer relations and service, the Horizon Group has embarked upon the institution of a new 'Delivery Center'.

    The brand new Delivery Center is located next to the Premier Shipyard on the waterfront. After motor yachts have been completed from the shipyards, they will be sent to the Delivery Center where professional inspectors will conduct ''checks including sea trial, installation check, and cabin work checks."

    To assure the highest quality, the Horizon Shipyard will only deliver a yacht to its owner (s) if it has gone through the rigorous tests by the inspectors. Horizon's aim is to improve the quality of their megayachts by utilizing quality management methodologies.

    Major representation

    April 18, 2008: Horizon Yachts: "outstanding representation at the Palm Beach Show: Horizon Yachts America represented well at the recently concluded Palm Beach International Boat Show with a number of Horizon Yachts on show.

    "The Horizon East Coast dealer, Horizon America, featured the newly delivered 107 trideck "Adriana III", 95 RPH "Arrigoderci", 86 enclosed bridge "Xanadu" and the 76 open bridge "Sweet Janine" at this year’s display."

    According to them it has been the largest line-up at any United States boat show and also the diversity of their builds represented was heartening to witness.

    Even the owners of each boat represented were on hand to answer questions and so on. "The owners of each of the boats were on board during the entire show providing valuable insights on the Horizon build process and final product. It is a tremendous benefit when a customer asks "what does the owner like about Horizon" and the owners are right there on cue to say wonderful things about the boats and the dealers. Who better to explain how to "Define your Horizon" than those who already have."

    May 09, 2008: Horizon Elegance 88: "After a year of intense discussions and examinations, the design for the previously introduced new 87’ model has been finalized, and acquired its name, “Horizon Elegance 88”. The first vessel is expected to be delivered to her owner in early 2009."

    According to Horizon Yachts, the idea for the new design came as a result of wanting to create a new 88 foot yacht with a contemporary flair but still retained the genes of the 'elegance' family of Horizon Yachts. "With this model Horizon is targeting a younger demographic who prefers a modern design in combination with classical lines and the solid quality one expects from a Horizon yacht."

    John H.V. Lindblom is the designer for this new and exciting yacht from Horizon. Mr Lindblom is no stranger to Horizon Yachts and has worked with them in the past and his work is manifested in the 76 and 105 foot models of the 'elegance series'. Lindblom asserted that he was satisfied with the design. "I am definitely convinced that this new Horizon Elegance 88 model will be appreciated by customers worldwide and a worthy member of the Horizon family."

    Horizon Yachts highlights that the Elegance 88 will be available to customers in a sky lounge and fly-bridge verson. As indicated the first model will be delivered to her owner in early 2009.

    Horizon Launches 74 PH Vision

    May 17, 2008:Horizon Yachts: Horizon 74 PH Vision: The Horizon Group have added its newest member to its fleet of models. This time it is the 74 foot Pilot House Vision. According to Horizon, the yacht successfully conducted her first sea trials on May 7th, 2008. With the trial, a speed of 26 knots was realized.

    The concept for the 74 is a direct evolution from the 68 Vision and has allowed for greater capability. President of Vision Shipyard, Austin Lin, hopes that by adding a fishing cockpit to the 74 that owners will be able to enjoy the duality of a fisher as well as a boating recreation "By adding a central bait tank, and changeable colorful LED lights in the stern."

    The CAT C32 engines allowed the yacht to attain top speeds of 26 knots without neglecting comfort, stability and steering functions. The engines worked well and showed her 17 guests onboard for the sea trial, a taste of things to come.

    "In addition to its excellent performance, this new model retains the advantages of her sister boat, the Horizon Vision pH68, delivers extraordinary interior volume and advanced functional arrangement in a hull of exceptional balance and superb sea keeping ability. The new Horizon Vision 74 CMY introduces a brand-new concept to the Horizon Vision series. With its additional feature, the Horizon Group is expecting to provide more choices to satisfy our discerning customers who might as well have different demands."

    On July 1st, 2009, the new Horizon Elegance Q68 MY successfully completed her initial sea trial. The Q68 MY was able to reach the high standards the Elegance series is known for. She amazed everybody on board with her sea keeping ability, including the captain, engineers and technicians.

    Does anyone know how Horizon Yacht facilities in Kaohsiung are since Typhoon Morakot slamed into Taiwan. I know there is significant damage and flooding in Kaohsiung but Horizon Shipyards?

    According to my friend working in Horizon,
    their facilities are all okay.

    But Morakot really made South Taiwan mournfully...:(

    I believe that the first Horizon Premier 41-meter has been launched and delivered. She is called "Bikini Queen 2" and has an interesting mid-toned high-glossed interior.
