A Busy August for Horizon: 5 Groups of Clients Attended Sea Trials in Taiwan
NEWS | August 27, 2018
For the four Horizon Yachts shipyards, it has been a very busy August with five sets of clients from around the world visiting Taiwan for delivery sea trials. Six luxury Horizon yachts will be delivered by the end of the month, including the Horizon CC115 superyacht, FD85 motoryacht, FD87 Skyline motoryacht, E88 motoryacht, PC65 power catamaran and PC52 power catamaran. The sales revenue in August reached an impressive USD $40 million.
Each of the sea trials were conducted with our QC and engineering teams along with the owners and representatives, all under strict QC guidelines and each one returning positive results and extremely happy customers. Successful sea trails and on-time deliveries are paramount to the success of any yacht manufacturer, and we are very proud of our track record for timely – and in many cases early – deliveries.
CEO of Horizon Group John Lu said, “Even with our capacity at full, we employ efficient construction methods that not only shorten lead times, but also retain our high standards through tank testing and subsequent sea trials. This is what assures the safety and quality of each and every Horizon yacht, and our efficiency does not go unnoticed by our clients. Their gratitude, and in many cases written thanks, is great recognition for our Horizon team.”
In our delivery center, visitors are treated to an extraordinary view of six stunning luxury Horizon yachts waiting for delivery to their owners in the U.S., Australia, and South America. Among the six yachts, the Horizon CC115 superyacht, E88 motoryacht, and PC65 power catamaran will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 31st through November 4th, 2018.
Horizon Yachts currently has thirteen luxury yachts in build, with seven scheduled for delivery by the end of the year. We are confident that Horizon will continue to expand the group of happy owners who enjoy their beautiful Horizon yachts on oceans all over the world!
