HORIZON HISTORY & OVERVIEW

Established: 1987
Located: Taiwan
Construction: Fiberglass
Category: Motoryacht, Flybridge, Megayacht

Horizon Yachts was founded in 1987 by John Lu, who has a deep-rooted passion for yachts and a love of the ocean that stems from childhood. After graduating from the National Taiwan Ocean University with a degree in naval architecture, Lu returned to his hometown of Kaohsiung to gain experience in the yachting industry. Mr. Lu's success as a naval architect led to the decision to establish Horizon Yachts, with the goal to build clients their ultimate dream yacht, a company goal that remains unchanged to this day.

The Taiwan yacht industry was prospering when Lu created Horizon; however, from 1987 to 1997, Taiwan’s yachting industry encountered an unexpected recession. During this time, Horizon Yachts adjusted its business strategy and shifted their focus to Europe, Australia and Asia. Horizon then redeveloped its yacht manufacturing processes, adhering to stringent yacht quality and safety requirements in Europe and Japan, and earned a distinct reputation for building yachts of exceptional quality and value. Horizon’s continual progress and advancements not only established a solid yacht building foundation but also resulted in the company’s ability to prevail over Taiwan’s economic recession.

In 1993 Horizon Yachts recognized a demand for high-value megayachts and began building larger yachts. Lu continued expanding Horizon in the following years: from 2000 to 2005, he restructured Horizon’s other three companies – Atech Composites, Vision Yachtsand Premier Yacht — and assigned each its own build concentration. The original Horizon Yacht company was also redeveloped to build a more comprehensive range of yachts. Lu then formed Horizon Group as the cohesive organization that interconnects the four companies and allows for the exchange of ideas and resources. In 2007, the Horizon Group Management center was established to help oversee and organize the Horizon Group network.

Since its inception in 1987, Horizon has emerged as a leading Asian yacht brand in the luxury megayacht market. Horizon Yachts is responsible for 1/3 of the Taiwan yachting industry total export quantity and has elevated Taiwan as one of the world’s Top 5 luxury yacht building nations.

Horizon Yachts has been honored as “Best Asian Motor Yacht Builder” 6 years in a row and is the first and only member of SYBAss (Superyacht Builder’s Association) from the Far East.
