Horizon Group, with its extensive experience gained over the last 25 years, has expanded its Premier shipyard, located in the Port of Kaosiung, to create a refit center. This expansion will provide high quality refits to owners of steel, FRP or aluminum vessels.
Building yachts and power catamarans in excess of 110 feet with BV, DNV, ABS or Lloyds classification, is Horizon Group’s forte.  Horizon Group’s Premier shipyard is dedicated to building top of the line super yachts. Currently, they are constructing the largest Asian-built luxury yacht, exceeding 148 feet with BV Ice Classification. To date Horizon Group has completed seven fully-classed super yachts.

The expanded shipyard now incorporates 656 feet (200m) of water front property as well as an automatic float on/off launch barge with a 650 ton lifting capacity! The Premier shipyard now has a logistical advantage for easy launch and retrieval, commissioning and final classification sea trials. Surveys are then conducted to compare the old with the new refit yachts.
