Horizon Group’s Horizon City Marina has added the Superyacht Ready certification to its list of accreditations that include the Global Gold Anchor Marina Accreditation and Certified Marina Operator (CMO) license. Presented by the Marina Industries Association (MIA), Horizon City Marina is the first and only marina in Taiwan to have the Superyacht Ready certification, which recognizes a marina’s capability to provide safe and adequate berthing for superyachts.
Accommodating vessels up to 200 feet in length, the marina is conveniently located in the heart of the city’s developing “Asia New Bay Area” and offers shorepower and water facilities built to international maritime standards. Yachts are accommodated within innovative and environmentally-friendly pillar less floating docks or via the Seaflex Mooring system. While Horizon City Marina is conveniently located within walking distance of hotels, shopping centers, restaurants and cinemas, it offers its own restaurant, lounge and shower facilities on site. Horizon City Marina also provides concierge services for visiting yachts, including assistance with CIQS clearance for foreign yachts, cruising map planning, supplies purchasing and more.
Since its establishment in 2013, the Horizon City Marina has accommodated hundreds of yachts and guests from around the world and has hosted corporate brand launches, international political delegations and several notable events, including the Taiwan International Boat Show. In 2021, the marina manager became the first Chinese woman in Asia to acquire the CMO license.The Superyacht Ready certification not only recognizes the Horizon City Marina’s ability to provide top services and facilities for superyachts, it coincides with the current enhancement of Horizon’s superyacht maintenance facility at its Premier Shipyard, which is expected to have the capability to provide comprehensive superyacht maintenance services by 2024.“With berthing requests from Asian superyacht owners on the incline, the Superyacht Ready certification assures yacht owners and crew that Horizon City Marina will meet their needs,” says Marina Manager Eve Kung. “This October marks our10th Anniversary and we have a number of celebratory events planned to mark this milestone throughout the year. We also plan to participate in international boat shows and join domestic and foreign associations to promote the marina worldwide.”
