The 69-metre motoryacht Saluzi built in 2003 has just completed a comprehensive refit at Horizon’s Premier Shipyard in Taiwan and is on her way to Singapore.

The Saluzi, formerly known as Tia Moana, is an all-aluminium vessel with a generous 13.8-metre beam and a 2.2-metre draft. She manages 16 knots at top speed and has a crew of 35. She was built by Austel who also designed her extrior and carried out all the engineering. Her interiors were the work of Tillberg design AB.

This is by far the largest refit project that has been undertaken and completed by Horizon since it opened the new shipyard in 2010 for carrying out both refits and new builds.

This refit included installation of new teak decks, a brand new mast, new electrical sliding doors and a complete renovation of the vessel’s air conditioning system. Little was done on the interior of the yacht but the bulwarks were modified and new handrails were installed. The exterior furniture was refurbished and in some instances replaced

The Premier Shipyard covers some 24,000 square metres and can house up to six yachts of 40 metres plus at any one time. It also has a float on/off launch barge with a 650-ton lifting capacity.
