Horizon Yachts’ Bahamas Bash Celebrates 30th Anniversary With Largest Ever Owner Rendezvous

12 May 2017

30 years in business, 27 Horizon luxury yachts and over 200 owners and guests enjoying fun-filled days in the Abacos – stir this all up together, and you have the highly success 2017 Horizon Yachts Global Owner Rendezvous!

Hosted April 26th through May 1st at the Abaco Beach Resort and surrounding areas, this year’s rendezvous commemorated Horizon’s 30th anniversary under the guidance of CEO John Lu and Horizon Yacht USA, who oversaw the rendezvous and celebrations. The event also marked the largest turnout in Horizon’s history and came full circle for the company – the first rendezvous ever held took place in the Abacos, making it a special place to return and celebrate our owners, guests and the Bahamas yachting lifestyle!

Over four sun-filled and breezy Bahamas days, the 2017 Owner Rendezvous offered multitude of activities for guests and owners, some of whom traveled from as far as Australia to join the celebration! Festivities included a welcome dinner and dancing the night away in the resort marquis; a private ferry to Nippers Beach Bar & Grill for a pig roast with a view (and those famous Nippers cocktails); fishing, snorkeling and island-touring excursions; costume-themed Yacht Hops, and much more.

Taking advantage of the azure blue waters, the rendezvous culminated on the fifth day with an aerial photo and video shoot where veteran photographer Jim Raycroft and videographer Suki Finnerty worked their magic to capture 15 Horizon yachts in formation while underway, as well as a Horizon power cat raft-up and a promotional shoot of the new RP120 superyacht, newly launched E98 motoryacht “Do It Now,” and E88 motoryacht.

“Augmented by the Bahamas’ renowned island hospitality, delicious food and gorgeous weather, the Horizon Yachts Global Owner Rendezvous was a great success,” said Lu. “But more importantly, this event emphasized to all of us that having fun in beautiful places and with wonderful people is truly what makes boating so enjoyable.”

Thank you to all the owners and guests who joined us in the Abacos for the Owner Rendezvous and 30 year anniversary celebration – what a wonderful time our Horizon family spent together!
