    I just read that an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 on the RS occured in Taiwan. To the average person, this earthquake occured just over 3-miles under the surface near the province of Kaohsiung. So far no one has been reported killed.

    Horizon Group’s Premier Shipyard Expands to Include Refit Capabilities for the Superyacht Industry


    Horizon Group’s Premier shipyard is dedicated to building yachts in excess of 110 feet with DNV, BV, Lloyds or ABS classification and to date has completed 7 fully-classed superyachts; they are also currently constructing the largest Asian-built luxury yacht at 148ft with BV Ice Classification.

    The extensive experience gained by Horizon over the last 25 years, especially with class-built superyachts, has evolved into the creation of a refit center. This refit center is backed by the comprehensive engineering, design and construction divisions of Horizon and therefore can provide quality refits to owners of steel, FRP or aluminum vessels. The latest refit underway at Horizon is the Russian flagged 130ft “Sea Hunter” originally built in Turkey in 2005.

    The Premier shipyard is located in the Port of Kaohsiung and incorporates 656 feet (200m) of water front property as well as an automatic float on/off launch barge with a 650 ton lifting capacity – this gives the Premier shipyard a logistical advantage for easy launch and retrieval, commissioning and final classification sea trials and survey for both new and refit yachts.

    The Non-Destructive Testing Project (NDT) at Horizon


    Horizon Group is the first luxury yacht builder in the world to apply Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods to yacht build process; NDT, which originated within the Aerospace and Military industries, comprises advanced inspection techniques that detect inner defects in a structure. Horizon utilizes NDT to aid us in finding and eliminating structural defects that may have occurred deep inside a vessel, allowing us to guarantee the quality of our vessels and build process.

    Since adopting NDT, Horizon has established the best methods for our yacht inspections: “Ultrasonic” and “Lockin Thermography” – both methods utilize high-end equipment to assist in implementing the inspection, and qualified technicians are required to be certified and notarized by a third party in order to use any equipment.

    As build technology continues to advance, so will Horizon – we always have, and will remain, dedicated to quality control and providing our clients with safe, reliable Horizon yachts.

    Horizon Group Continues to Expand and Improve Facilities


    As the yachting industry continues to recover from the downtrodden global economy, Horizon Group has made a dedicated effort to re-invest in its shipyards through facility expansion and improvements, allowing us to better serve our valued clients.

    Horizon Group has started its plant expansion and improvement projects from Horizon shipyard since 2010, and to date we has enlarged two bays and raised the ceiling to bring in more natural light and improve ventilation in the construction buildings, has expanded the test tank to accommodate largest yachts, and has upgraded the boat testing facilities and the computer systems on site.

    And the most recent facility project completed in January 2012 was to renovate the shipyard grounds to be more level, making transportation of materials and equipment easier within the facility and creating a safer working environment. All these efforts and investments are for building the better and better Horizon yachts.

    Open House for Horizon


    The Horizon Group are pleased to announce the sale of four new build Horizon yachts all signed at the recent Horizon Open House event at the shipyard in Kaohsiung Taiwan June 26th – June 29th, with hopefully more sales to follow.

    The event was held to celebrate 25 years of luxury yacht manufacturing and the launch of the new EP148 “Horizon Polaris” the largest Asian build Ice Class private yacht to date.

    The week started with welcome dinners for owners, guests, media and Horizon Partners and was followed up with daily sightseeing and factory tours culminating in the Open House event on Thursday evening attended by over 500 people and where 9 new Horizon yachts valuing over $74M USD were on display. The common theme of comments from those who attended the factory tours at Horizon was “ we never realized the size of Horizon Yachts facilities and the technology being used”, one client commented that “it is unbelievable to see this level of growth and depth of commitment of a yacht manufacturer in today’s market.”

    The evening events were spectacular with live bands, modern and traditional dancing and light shows highlighting the new Horizon Yachts on display. The weather cooperated in every way with warm temperatures, a slight breeze and no rain, after the previous two weeks of rain this was a very welcome turn of events, as John Lu the Horizon CEO stated “we must be doing something right”… The new Horizon Polaris EP148 Ice class explorer yacht held center stage and was surrounded by the E54, E84, E88, CC80, PC58, P110 and the RP120, each showcasing Horizon's quality, flexibility and commitment to defining the details in yacht building.
