Californian Yachts’ History

Californian Yachts’ HistoryCalifornian Yachts, an American company well regarded by yachting enthusiasts who appreciate luxurious, moderately priced vessels, was founded by a designing duo that revolutionized the trawler yachts industry with their innovative creations. Californian Yachts’ history begins in the 1970s, when partners Jule Marshall and Myrna Elliott came together with a single goal: to create fast, luxurious, top quality trawler yachts at a moderate price. Californian Yachts has undergone several ownership changes since, but Marshall’s unwavering dedication to creating semi-custom pilothouse yachts that are fast, maneuverable, and affordable has remained the cornerstone of Californian Yachts to this very day. Now joined with Navigator Yachts, Californian Yachts remains a true American treasure.

At the time of Californian Yachts inception, trawler yachts had an uneven reputation: they were comfortable and fuel efficient, but also expensive, frustratingly slow, and unable to keep up with the faster sport fishers and powerboats on the market. Marshall redesigned the hull and superstructures, using a semi-displacement hull and ramping up the horsepower. Elliott designed the interiors, creating luxurious, comfortable surroundings with a roomy feel. In 1976, one of the company’s first commercially successfully models, the 42 LRC trawler, was launched, introducing the trawlers to a wider audience who appreciated the yacht’s exceptional handling, impressive fuel economy, and affordable pricing.

Through the years, Californian Yachts has undergone a number of ownership changes. Marshall sold the company to Wellcraft Marine in 1980, but continued to build some vessels for Wellcraft before reacquiring the brand in 1984. Marshall sold the company again in 1986, this time to the Carver Corporation, and concentrated his energies on starting a new company, Navigator Yachts, with his two sons. In 1991, Marshall once again purchased Californian Yachts. He now designs for both lines, continuing to create vessels that offer maximum speed and maneuverability, superior fuel economy, and a lavish feel at an affordable price.

Horizon Yachts’ History

Horizon Yachts' HistoryHorizon Yachts, the parent company of the Horizon Group, has earned a world-wide reputation for delivering outstandingly innovative vessels tailored to each owner’s unique and individual requirements. Horizon Yachts’ history begins in Taiwan in 1987, when CEO John Lu applied his years of experience as a successful naval architect to found a company dedicated to the purpose of creating and building innovative, aesthetically pleasing yachts that are the embodiment of the clients’ dreams. After years of diversifying and expanding its holdings, Horizon has emerged as the leading Asian yacht brand in the luxury megayacht market, recognized throughout the industry for its sophisticated craftsmanship, superior build techniques, and innovative technology.

While Horizon originally built yachts under 80 feet for the Taiwanese market, within two years its focus shifted to target markets to Europe, Australia and Asia. By adjusting Horizon’s market strategy, Lu was able to establish a solid yacht building foundation that allowed the company to weather an economic recession in Taiwan, emerging stronger and larger than ever. In 1993, recognizing the demand for larger vessels, Lu increased production capacity, officially entering the luxury megayacht market with delivery of Horizon’s first 80 foot megayacht in 1995.

Lu continued expanding Horizon Yachts in the following years, restructuring the company into four subsidiary companies managed by the Horizon Group. Horizon Yachts remains the flagship company, building exceptional yachts ranging from 46 to 150 feet. Currently the ninth largest yacht builder in the world, Horizon has delivered over 650 yachts, each reflecting its owner’s lifestyle and personality, created with the care and dedication only achievable by a team of experts demonstrating an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and long-term industry success.
