Horizon Yachts has been a major power in Taiwan-based yacht building for more than 30 years. Since founder and president, John Lu, built his first yachts, the company has followed a path of consistent growth, both in terms of the sizes and types of vessels it constructed and in terms of numbers and world market share.

The Horizon line has over the years included yachts from 48’ to 150’ LOA. The company’s production range includes motor yachts from 52’ to 130’ LOA, a series of “fast displacement” yachts from 77’ to 125’ LOA, and a series of catamarans from 52’ to 74’ LOA. And unlike many other Asian production builders, Horizon operates an active custom yacht division that has built vessels from 80’ to 150’ LOA. Presently, there are approximately 90 Horizon yachts on the pre-owned world market, with build dates ranging from 1989 to 2016, including several power catamarans.
The Horizon range of catamaran motor yachts extends from 52’ to 74’ LOA. These are voluminous yachts with 22’ to 28’ beams and semi- and fully-enclosed flybridge pilot houses. Truly huge full-beam saloons are employed on their main decks and intelligent interior space design has, in them, finally brought genuine motor yacht accommodation spaces to the catamaran sector.
Horizon Power Catamarans is a joint venture between The Power Catamaran Company and Horizon Yachts, created to build state of the art luxury power catamaran yachts. This joint venture united the perspectives of The Power Catamaran Company with the yacht manufacturing capabilities of Horizon Yachts.
Horizon is known in globally for its willingness to employ some of the best large-yacht architects in the world to handle its exterior and interior styling, for example, award-winning designers like Juan Carlos Espinosa and Luiz de Basto. Coupled with first-rate architecture and engineering from the likes of world-renown N.A. Donald Blount. Moreover, having ready access to the high world-class support manufacturing available in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, where Horizon is based, and the firm’s consistently meticulous attention to fit and finish, the sum total of these inputs functions to make Horizon yachts some of the best values on the pre-owned market.
