Horizon Yachts in Focus
The founding of Horizon Yachts in 1987 was driven by the uncompromising passion and inspiration of its founder, John Lu, a distinguished marine engineer. John Lu was focused on his dream of establishing a prolific yacht building company and brand that epitomises the highest standards of craftsmanship, reliability and stability.
John Lu has always been fascinated by everything that is attached to the blue ocean. He was born and raised in the Taiwan province of Kaoshiung. He returned to the place of his birth after earning his naval architecture degree from the National Taiwan Ocean University.
Since it broke ground in 1987, Horizon Yachts was able to successfully complete more than 700 yacht construction projects. All yacht construction projects are done in the company’s modern production facility, which is located in Taiwan. The company employs some 1,100 highly skilled and experienced craftsmen, technicians and administrative personnel.

The Unending Pursuit of Excellence and Perfection
Horizon Yachts has partnered with several distinguished professionals and companies for some of the most successful and high profile yacht construction projects. Some of the notable projects of the company were completed in collaboration with Juan Carlos Espinosa, Greg Marshall and John Lindblohm.
Horizon Yachts has also taken significant steps in improving its production capabilities and performance. Various steps and interventions were made by the company to achieve higher level of standards in terms of quality, performance, durability, craftsmanship, reliability and safety. One of the groundbreaking production solutions that Horizon Yachts has instituted is the resin-infusion type of moulding process called SCRIMP. SCRIMP is a revolutionary production process that was developed and used by the US Navy.
This modern solution received its stamp of approval and passed with flying colours the stringent performance and safety standards of the US Naval Surface Warfare Centre. This means that this solution surpassed the highest standards of stability, consistency and strength, whilst maintaining a low weight to volume ratio.
Generally, this advanced production technology has evolved from the mainstream production method involving lamination process using vacuum bag. This groundbreaking solution allows for a more controlled production process, particularly the level of resin. In addition to this, it also solves the long standing challenge of high incidence of air pockets, which is usually the case when using the conventional manual layup.
The production portfolio of Horizon Yachts consists of the following yacht lines – Euro type, custom-made superyachts, catamaran type, solar yacht, traditional appearance, raised pilothouse and expedition type.
