ShowBoats International recently released their December 2013 Global Order Book update, which reports on yachts 24m and above currently on order or under construction around the world, and Horizon has announced that they ranked 10th in the top ten 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 and eight yachts are 24.9 to 28.5 meters - the average length of yachts under construction among all shipyards in the Global Order Book is 40.63 meters, but the 24-40 meter 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 they are proud of in today's global economic conditions. The company explained, “We fully expect 2013 to bring a wave of new orders for Horizon's luxury yacht collection.”
