    For a company who has or is building its fourth 130 it sure has been quiet. I have not seen one mention in any of the popular yachting mags and their website has nothing but a brief news item announcing the launch. Here is a link to the news item.

    What are the names of the other three 130's?

    Actually that boat is at 128 feet. It's basically Horizon's prototype design for their 130. The actual Horizon 130 series will be very similar to the 128 but with slight changes to the exterior design. Little bit more refined.

    lwrandall, you are correct that they are very quiet considering they are building 4 130s. But Horizon has always been very quiet with their PR. For example very few people even know they are ranked top 10 in the Global Build Report for quite a few years and they were ranked 6th during 2005 or 2006.

    They do have a new team of PR and marketing people onboard now so things should change.

    I hate of be so crass, and opinionated, but look how that simple forward structural truss-line makes great sense of the forward reaching canopy. And the key proportions of the window lines look great, especially here, from the vantage of the fish. The BR.120 is aluminum, so they probably just got carried away with the plasticity of the material, while this one looks stronger than steel.

    Some photos of Horizon128

    The boat is indeed Horizon 128, not 130.
    And the boat is still in Kaohsiung harbor, Taiwan.
    Here are the photos taken in Horizon's factory.
