The activity was non-stop for the Taiwan-based shipyard Horizon Yachts at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show 2015, which was held from November 5 to 9. The company showcased an amazing display of luxury vessels during the event, including superyacht E88, motor yacht E84 and E78 yacht, the PC60 and PC52 power catamarans, as well as P110 superyacht.
“This year marked the largest FLIBS show ever, as well as the largest Horizon Yachts showcase at FLIBS,” commented Horizon Yacht USA Director Roger Sowerbutts. “We saw a steady stream of clients throughout the show, some looking to get into a new boat immediately and others interested in building a yacht that will suit their specific yachting lifestyle. “The energy and enthusiasm for Horizon, and for boating in general, was very encouraging, and we are excited to further explore the activity at the show.”
Horizon E88 open bridge yacht made her debut at the show and attracted plenty of attention, thanks to her four stateroom layout with separate crew aft, open flybridge, beach club with hydraulic swim platform, as well as numerous amenities – an ideal vessel for extended periods in the Bahamas. The “smaller sister” to the E88, the Horizon E84 (example is motor yacht Virginia) was also very popular throughout the show. She is flexible enough to be owner-operated by an experience yachting couple and/or more formally with crew. With her hydraulic hard top, the Horizon E78 (example can be luxury yacht Wild Duck) drew attention for those clients searching for a spacious mid-range motoryacht, especially one that has been designed to cruise under fixed bridges. The Horizon PC60 and PC52 were the most popular power catamarans at the show, known for their blue-water cruising capabilities, as well as high quality fit and finish.
New Horizon model designs were also discussed at the event, especially the new FD85 fast displacement yacht, RP120 superyacht, as well as E98 yacht on a 23’ beam. Both the FD85 and RP120 superyachts will make their premiere at the 2016 Taiwan Int’l Boat Show in March, and a new E98 is presently under construction for a previous Horizon owner. Many Horizon owners and clients were excited to hear about the 2016 Horizon Yachts Open House, which will be held alongside the Taiwan Int’l Boat Show. The four day showcase has become a premier event for owners and guests to visit the Horizon shipyard, view new models, as well as celebrate the company’s success as one of the largest luxury yacht manufacturers in the world.
