Horizon’s largest ever refit
Published: Thursday, 01 August 2013
Taiwan-based superyacht builder Horizon has just announced that Saluzi, a 227-foot refit project, is nearing completion. She is set to be re-launched and delivered to Singapore in early August.
Currently docked at Horizon's Premier shipyard, Saluzi, with all-aluminium hull and superstructure, is the largest refit to be completed at Horizon since Premier opened its doors to refit projects in 2010.
Built in 2003 by Australian yacht builder Austal, Saluzi (formerly called Tia Moana) has two MTU 16V 2000 M60 engines providing a cruising speed of 16 knots. She can accommodate 60 guests in 30 cabins.
Founded in 1987 by CEO John Lu, Horizon Yachts has built more than 120 yachts over 80 feet to date. The Premier shipyard occupies 24,000 square metres and can simultaneously accommodate six yachts of 40 metres and up.
Horizon also owns 200 metres of waterfront property, along with an automatic float on/off launch barge with 650 tonnes of lifting capacity.
