The outstanding Horizon EP148 motor yacht Horizon Polaris has been honoured with the Taiwan Excellence Gold Award at the recent 22nd Taiwan Excellence Awards. Superyacht Horizon Polaris was one of 1,281 candidates from 504 companies shortlisted for the prominent award.
The winners of the 22nd Taiwan Excellence Awards, which is hosted by the Taiwan Bureau of Foreign Trade, represent the most revolutionary, highest quality, and highest value-added products made in Taiwan, and the Taiwan Excellence Gold Award is the top honor within the Taiwan Excellence Awards.
During this year’s award ceremony, Taiwan Vice President Wu Den-yih praised Taiwanese companies for their dedication to innovative products as well as for creating products that are internationally recognized; he also noted that these companies are gaining a market share in their respective industries while helping to boost Taiwan’s export levels. Mr. James Fwu accepted the award on behalf of Horizon Group and expressed Horizon’s extreme pride in not only receiving the Gold Award but to be the first yacht manufacturer to win the award.
“Horizon Group holds ourselves to a high standard and will continue to improve upon our quality luxury yachts, not only to satisfy our clients but also to help spread the word about the incredible craftsmanship and quality of yachts built in Taiwan,” said Fwu.
