Since March of 1997 when the first houseboat came out of the custom-designed plant, Horizon Yachts has been putting pride and workmanship into each houseboat it builds. This Kentucky builder has a strong reputation for offering one of the best available houseboats in the industry. This success is best evidenced by its repeat business. The attention to details has given Horizon Yachts a solid reputation for excellent service during construction and continuing after the delivery. From the simple yet delightful to the most luxurious vessel imaginable, each houseboat embraces the beauty and mystique of the waterfront.

Horizon Yachts has nurtured a variety of custom crafts for the past 13 years and each is built with special features or designs. One of the biggest differences on a Horizon Yacht is something you may not notice in the slip. It continues to be the hull featuring a double plated semi-V bow and full keel design that keeps the boat on course. The way these boats handle is amazing as they cut across those waves creating a gentle ride.

"Horizon Yachts strives to be a name recognized for the best houseboat in the industry. We continue to build houseboats for families that still have a passionate dream of houseboating. Our strength continues to be in our success of repeat customers. Your dreams are limitless with a Horizon Yacht."
