U.S. Owner of E98 Motoryacht Do It Now Visits Horizon Shipyards
NEWS | September 09, 2016
Horizon Yachts recently had the pleasure of hosting the owner of the E98 open bridge motoryacht “Do It Now,” hull one of the new model that is currently in build, at the Horizon shipyards in Taiwan. Accompanied by Horizon Yacht USA as well as two of her crew members, the owner spent three days reviewing all aspects of her new build project. She met with the design team to review her E98’s interior design and accommodations and toured extensively through her new E98, reviewing the layout, engineering, and overall build status. During her visit, Horizon and the build team also treated the owner to a traditional 15-course dinner for an authentic Taiwan experience!
The new E98 “Do It Now” is the second Horizon yacht for this owner, who previously enjoyed a 76 motoryacht. “Do it Now” is built on a 23’ beam and will feature four en suite guest staterooms with crew quarters aft of the engines. Her layout and interior has been customized to suit this owner in almost every aspect, from the main salon that will be extended through to the galley (in lieu of including formal dining) to the rich Walnut wood, which will be applied in a hi gloss finish on the main deck and satin finish below deck.
The owner shared her thoughts about her trip and experiences with us recently, saying, "Simply stated the Horizon Team is a pleasure to work with. They make the build process a pleasurable exercise from the initial concept and hull design to the finished yacht. Every effort is made to deliver a high performance yacht that reflects the owners' individual design features and boating requirements.
I along with my captain and engineer traveled to Kaohsiung to work individually with the Horizon team, specifically the architects, engineers and design teams to finalize every feature of the build. It was a perfect time to visit as the room partitions were in place but the walls were still open which allowed us to work with the team to create additional storage spaces, visualize the finished spaces and tweek the design features.
I am amazed at the expertise, the attention to detail and pride of craftsmanship that the Horizon team puts into every phase of the build and their willingness to accommodate every design request. John Lu and the entire Horizon team connect with the owners on a personal level as well. The hospitality shared on our trip made for a very enjoyable time in Kaohsiung. Building a yacht doesn't get any better than this!"
After a wonderful trip to Taiwan, the owner and Horizon are looking forward to watching the new Horizon E98 “Do It Now” transition into a beautiful new luxury yacht! For more information, please contact us at 561-721-4850 or [email protected]
