The Horizon Difference
Horizon is deeply rooted in the technologies and traditions of Naval Architecture; but we recognize that increasingly sophisticated ships and ocean systems require a multidisciplinary approach. In addition to Naval Architects our team includes Engineers from many different specialties, Project Managers, Designers and other talented people who love to find innovative solutions to tough problems.
The Horizon team has experience with a wide variety of commercial vessels representing almost every industry, including freighters, ferries, tugs, tankers, OSVs and passenger ships. We are equally at home with vessels ranging in size from small workboats to cruise ships. We not only know the ships, but we know the industries, and can help navigate the logistical challenges within an industry while engineering solutions to industry specific problems. Horizon can design special purpose vessels, engineer and manage major refits, and provide solutions for regulatory compliance.
Yachts are a particularly demanding segment of the marine industry. The unique operational requirements for each yacht, and the high level of finish required, demand extreme attention to detail and engineering excellence. At Horizon we understand the specialized world of yachting and look forward to achieving exceptional results for our clients.
Our Engineers and Naval Architects have developed platforms and systems for the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Special Operations Command, NOAA, the U.S. Coast Guard, foreign navies, and various state and local governments and universities. We embrace the opportunities and challenges inherent in working with government entities, and pride ourselves on providing timely and cost effective technical solutions.
