ShowBoats International recently released their December 2013 Global Order Book update, which reports on yachts 24m (80 feet) and above currently on order or under construction around the world, and Horizon is pleased to announced we ranked 10th in the top 10 largest shipyards with 15 yachts under construction totaling 449 meters (1,473 feet) in length.

Of the 15 Horizon yachts currently being built, seven yachts are 30-36.4 meters (100 -120 feet) and eight yachts are 24.9 -28.5 meters (81-94 feet) - the average length of yachts under construction among all shipyards in the Global Order Book is 40.63 meters (133.4 feet), but the 24-40 meter (80 - 132) size range occupies the largest segment of new orders.

Taiwan also ranked number six in the top 10 yacht manufacturing countries, showing 41 yachts/1,255 meters (4,117.6 feet) under construction.

Horizon has maintained a position in the 2013 Global Order Book top ten shipyards list for the past few years, a feat we are proud of in today's global economic conditions, and we fully expect 2013 to bring a wave of new orders for Horizon's luxury yacht collection.

Last weekend Horizon celebrated an exciting moment as we launched the new Horizon EP series 115-foot expedition yacht Tango 5, which holds status as the largest luxury yacht Horizon as sold in the Singapore yacht market. Tango 5 is built with the ocean adventurer in mind, featuring a steel hull, bulbous bow, four stateroom layout and cockpit for fishing and diving.

The expedition yacht was launched by Horizon's Dream 1 floating barge, and thanks to the organization and expertise of the employees the process went extremely smooth; once Tango 5 was launched and tied to the dock, the Horizon staff took a moment to celebrate the success of bringing another owner's dream yacht to life.

For the next two months, Horizon will conduct a series of commissioning tests, incline tests, BV class surveys and many others to ensure Tango 5 will deliver to her new owner in perfect condition.

This new Horizon 115-foot, long-range expedition yacht is scheduled to deliver in March 2013 and make her world debut at the Boat Asia Show in April 2013.
