Quality Assurance: Horizon’s Service and Refit Facility
NEWS | December 11, 2018
Over the last three decades, The Horizon Group has built and delivered more than 800 luxury yachts. In 2013, Horizon established a dedicated Refit Center at the Premier shipyard and, in the five short years since has provided maintenance, repair, and refit services to 23 yachts, including a 227ft megayacht. Owners of larger yachts have taken notice of the facility, with one Russian owner about to undergo annual maintenance – its 8th service at Horizon – and four yachts averaging 40 meters in length currently in the contract phase.
Ideally situated on Kaohsiung Harbor, the 656ft (200m) waterfront property includes an automatic float on/off launch barge with a 650-ton lifting capacity for yachts up to 200 feet (60m) with a 45ft (13.4m) beam. The Refit Center facilities provide a tremendous advantage for easy launch and retrieval, commissioning, final classification, sea trials, and surveying for the yachts in service at the yard.
Backed by an experienced engineering and design team, Horizon’s refit services include:
• Haul-out capabilities
• Hull structure modifications
• Interior modifications
• Naval architecture services
• Class approval
With customer satisfaction, quality assurance, durability, safety and value as the absolute minimum standards, the Horizon Group and Refit Center provide an all-encompassing array of services dedicated to ensuring uninterrupted yachting enjoyment.
