Horizon Group was founded in 1987, Taiwan’s prospering yachting industry experienced an unexpected recession. Undeterred, Horizon’s founder and CEO John Lu made critical decisions over the next decade that served to keep this builder at the forefront of the very competitive yacht building industry. In 1989, Horizon shifted its business strategy to target the European, Australian and Asian markets. The company then redeveloped its yacht construction process, voluntarily complying with the stringent quality and safety requirements set by Europe and Japan. As a result, Horizon quickly earned a distinct reputation for building yachts of exceptional quality and value compared to its European counterpart.
Today, the Horizon Group continues to be known for its wide range of award-winning yachts designed and constructed with sophisticated craftsmanship, superior build techniques, and innovative technologies.
