Horizon is proud to announce that they have ranked nine in the 2016 Global Order Book list of Top 30 Yacht Builders by length worldwide, and this is their tenth consecutive ranking since 2005. Annually released by ShowBoats International Magazine, the Global Order Book provides an in-depth look at international yacht build and sales activity throughout the globe on yachts 80’ in length and longer.
Horizon had 16 projects under construction varying in size from 80 to 140 feet and totaling 2,005 feet in length, and Taiwan placed fourth in the Top 10 Builder Nations with a total of 74 vessels in build. A sharp increase in activity seems to be the key to this year’s Global Order Book, which increased almost 40% from last year and up to 7,375 feet in total length under construction. Motorboat orders are still the largest sector in the industry with 558 orders and sailing is in third place with 84 orders.
“As reflected by the Global Order Book, Horizon Yachts experienced a successful year with our new build projects, something we feel confident will continue in 2016,” commented Horizon Yachts CEO John Lu. “We also expect to grow the yacht market in our home country and look forward to great success with the 2016 Taiwan International Boat Show.”
