The recently released Global Order Book 2012, compiled by ShowBoats International magazine, has announced Horizon now holds the ninth position in the world’s top 10 megayacht builders. Horizon is the only Asian yacht builder in the top 10 list and Horizon’s home country of Taiwan ranks seventh in the top 10 yacht builder nations.
The Global Order Book 2012 reviews all megayacht projects above 80ft (24M) currently under construction as well as all new orders signed for yachts above 80ft (24M) by August 31, 2011. Horizon possesses an abundance of experience in building megayachts in excess of 80 feet and recorded a total of 519 meters for 17 projects during this period of time, averaging 100 feet per project. This new position in the top 10 megayacht builders list reveals Horizon has gained a large share in the megayacht market as the largest yacht builder in both Taiwan and Asia.
Horizon celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and this new number nine ranking will only further encourage the over 1000 employees of Horizon Group to aim high and reach higher in 2012.
