Horizon Dominates Taiwan Boat Show

The opening of the Taiwan International Boat Show 2016 has illustrated the dominance of Horizon Yachts as a consistent performer amongst the top motor yacht manufacturers presenting vessels to the market.

The exhibition which is being held at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre adjacent to the Horizon City Marina, opened it’s doors today to invited VIP guests.

Horizon Motor Yachts presented the debut of two new designs, the much anticipated Horizon FD85, being a totally unique class of vessel classified as a ‘fast displacement’ cruiser and the modernised ‘raised pilothouse’ RP120 superyacht.

A colleague who had the privilege of testing the RP 120 underway just prior to it’s placement into the exhibition hall for the show stated that “the RP120 is the smoothest yacht of this size I’ve ever driven, it’s really responsive too!

Having personally inspected the RP120, I would add that the fit and finish of the boat is totally next level and worthy of a look if you are considering this type of motor yacht.

The Taiwan International Boat Show is on until Sunday 13th March 2016 after which further details of these spectacular Horizon Motor Yachts can be obtained by contacting me directly at Standen Marine in Sydney.
