  1. Horizon Enters Steel Megayacht Market:
    Bandido 148'

    Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Nov. 17, 2008 – The Horizon Group held a traditional Chinese ceremony to celebrate the start of construction of its latest new model – the Bandido 148 Explorer Megayacht. The first steel for its hull was cut on November 17. Horizon Group used the occasion to announce it is entering a new era by expanding its current model lines to include the steel luxury megayacht market.

    Building at Premier Shipyard, a member of Horizon Group, the latest Bandido 148 Explorer is born from a close collaboration between Horizon Group-Premier team, its dealer Drettmann GmbH in Germany, and the designer Juan Carlos “J.C.” Espinosa. Following the success of the Premier 130 and Bandido 75, Horizon asked J.C. Espinosa to develop a larger Bandido model – a long-range megayacht with world-wide cruising capability in all types of weather, while affording luxury yacht comforts to all onboard.

  2. While each yacht will receive a customized interior designed according to its owner’s requirements, the first Bandido 148 Explorer Megayacht houses an expansive interior in its rugged, though elegant, superstructure. Accommodations are for eight guests in four staterooms on the lower deck amidships. Eight crews are housed in four cabins (all with private bathrooms) forward, plus laundry facilities and crew’s lounge.
