We just cannot say enough about this outstanding shipbuilder which took our breath away on a recent Asian yard tour. With over 550 motoryacht deliveries worldwide, this brand is set to overtake the competition in the United States and redefine buyer expectations with regards design, engineering and a new range of family-friendly features.
As of early 2013, Horizon Yacht reported that it had 15 motoryacht projects underway with 6 yachts delivered over 80 feet; it anticipated another 6 motoryacht deliveries in the first quarter of 2013.
Since inception, Horizon has delivered over 640 yachts for a total length of 26,000 feet, and 120 of those yachts have been over 80 feet.
“We expect to see continued sales and growth this spring season, with a number of global markets picking up in interest and client activity,” said Horizon Yachts.
26 North Yachts has identified the Horizon E88 and RP110, as particularly attractive to the U.S. market, showing great value and superlative design and engineering features.
The Horizon RP110, for instance, features light-weight structural construction processes, offering reduced weight and draft, increased speed and a lower center of gravity for high speed cruising and comfort. These manufacturing improvements are a function of their impressive facilities which we personally toured a few months ago, and confirm Horizon Yacht’s growing pedigree as a first-rate motoryacht builder.
Horizon Yachts has been paying special attention to molds, materials and construction methods that enhance the strength and reduce the overall weight of the E88 and RP110 in particular.
“We have succeeded in developing much lighter superstructures for our yachts, with hull number one of the Horizon RP110 raised pilothouse superyacht being the first yacht to benefit from this new light-weight superstructure.”
Over the next several months we will be showcasing these two Horizon models as well as the following motoryachts, all of which are searchable in our worldwide directory featuring Horizon yachts for sale. Other models we will be covering include:

If U.S. buyers are interested in adding Horizon Yachts to the their comparative shopping list we suggest they bookmark our Horizon Yachts Spotlight which offers a definitive breakdown all Horizon Models from 150 feet all the way down to 50 feet. Motoryacht Boarding Passes are available from this area, too.
Many readers will remember the in-depth Horizon Yachts podcast interview we conducted with Roger Sowerbutts, Horizon USA, a year or two ago, which amplified the massive technological advances taking place inside this yard, as well as projected sales figures for the U.S. and Asian market. A lot has happened since then, but we continue to champion this innovative motoryacht brand in the U.S.
We are are already suggesting to buyers that they make a strong attempt to visit the upcoming Fort Lauderdale Boat Show which will showcase four Horizon models:
- E88 at 2013 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show
- E56 at 2013 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show
- RP110 at 2013 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show
- PC60 at 2013 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show
If you need some help planning your boat show calendar and isolating motor yachts of interest between 50-150 feet in length, please contact us online. We would be glad to help.
Finally, don’t forget to sign up to Horizon Yachts e-alerts, including this recent Horizon broadcast, which was aimed at buyers interested in purchasing a Horizon E88 and/or Horizon RP110. While our ultimate aim is to sell more motoryachts, you will find we take our role seriously with regards generally educating buyers, sellers and industry players on the merits of the Horizon brand; a builder we feel is set to shake things up the U.S yacht industry especially as we approach the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show and Miami Boat Shows respectively.
