Horizon Tournament 52' SportfishFar East SportFish Ready to Fight by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy Horizon steps out of its noted, successful presentation of luxury motoryachts to enter the strongly competitive world of Tournament Sportfishing with a secret weapon from the Far East. Talk to a professional Tournament Captain about a new model sportfish; his first response is, “Will it bring up fish?” The yachtsmen, and women, who populate this highly competitive world of tournament sportfishing, recognize particular hull designs which seem to communicate with ... and attract big fish, enticing them to the baits they troll in their wakes. This accounts for the popularity of certain brands, certain winning boats, which win/place/show time after time in this unusual but vibrant, competitive niche of the boating world. The sportfishermen who own, and crew these boats, are not your Sunday afternoon splashers; they crave, live and breathe competition: Winning. Their most prized possessions are trophies which place them in the top echelon of Tournament Sportfishing. They are doctors, lawyers, real estate tycoons, businessmen, executives who rate sportfishing as their foremost entertainment priority. To them, sportfishing is not just a hobby, but an obsession. They move their boats and crews hundreds of miles and spend outrageous amounts on fuel, entrance fees, dockage and parties, to fulfill that passion.
