CEO John Lu, Mr. Gong Shan Chiai, and Mr. Cheng Shun Hui in 1987 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan made this dream possible to all yachtsmen. Lu, a naval architect and visionary to the yachting world, added a new ‘kid’ on the yacht block like no other after recognizing a demand for a special type of yacht and hence, began his journey building 80 foot yachts (24M) and up!

If your focus is on a yacht that adheres to more of an environmentally friendly yacht designs and manufacturing processes, Horizon must be added to your ‘yacht shop’ list. Boasting the status of the world’s fifth largest custom yachts manufacturer, it’s hard to imagine their beginnings started with under 30 employees.

To find out more on why this builder is catching the eye of all, we decided to look further to find that in 1999, Horizon became the first authorized yacht builder in Asia to implement SCRIMP (Seemann’s Composites Resin Infusion Molding Process). For the layman in simple terms, this is a construction method that was developed by the U.S. Navy to increase the strength of a vessel making it more durable but most importantly, neither adding weight or affecting the yacht’s overall performance.

To continue dazzling all in the ever evolving yacht space we all like to dream in, Horizon was the envy of many builders when they came out with their 3D resin infusion technology. This gave them the advantage of building far larger yachts than ever before that were not only stronger but, the what all builders strive for, lighter. In 2005 their 130-foot (40M) hull and stiffeners infused in one shot, broke the world record and to impress you further, we can report that they have produced five 130ft-plus (40M) hulls utilizing this improved 3D infusion technology in total to date!

The wonder creators continued to amaze all as in 2009, Horizon, through SAERTEX, was certified by EADS (The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company N.V, now the Airbus Group). The Group then was authorized to add another advanced process technology called VARTM (Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding). VARTM, a breakthrough technology originally developed for aircraft manufacturing, would now assist with the fine art of yacht construction. Without sacrificing the benefits of SCRIMP, VARTM can more uniformly distribute resin and guarantee less air trapped within the composite. Horizon is proud to use this VARTM process on all their hulls. The results are amazing as the final product has impressed all with the yacht’s strong, yet light and durable superstructure and hull.

VARTM & SCRIMP resin infusions assure Horizon of the consistent quality and performance of parts they are known for.

In 2016, Horizon successfully developed an enhanced HYVER resin to add another edge to the already solid protocol of what’s needed to build that ‘dream’ vessel we have you looking over the ‘horizon’ at!
