Horizon 68' Vision Skylounge MotoryachtA New Vision From Horizon Yachts by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy Happy Birthday! Bells and Whistles! Foghorns! Champagne! A glorious day in the yachting community, as a company claims a full generation – 20 years – of building superb yachting craft. Many of its satisfied customers own their 2nd or 3rd Horizon luxe-liner. Once again, Horizon Yachts extends its reputation for fine products as Taiwan’s largest builder. Indeed, 6th largest yacht producer in the world, with 400 yachts launched – 62’ to 130’ ! And what a way to celebrate... with the debut of a fresh new design, offering the luxury of easy handling, comfort, and a utilitarian layout, which means a competent yachting couple can handle this yacht by themselves, if they so desire, with or without a professional crew. Designed by Seattle-based Naval Architect Greg Marshall, the new Vision 68 shares similar design elements with another recently launched Marshall design, the much acclaimed Calixas 105', also built at Horizon's yard. Not its biggest, at a “mere” 68 ft., Vision is just over half the size of Horizon’s newest megayacht underway; the S130. Yet, the Vision 68 sports many of the same possibilities.
