Taiwan's yacht construction industry can be traced back to the 1960s and over the past five decades it has flourished, internationalised and then rapidly declined. Now, following industrial transformation, the fine workmanship, high level of customisation and superiority of Taiwan's yachting industry has once more gained recognition from international buyers. As the capital of Taiwan's yachting industry, Kaohsiung has been chosen to host the 2014 Taiwan International Boat Show.
Organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA and the Kaohsiung City Government, the yacht show will be implemented by TAITRA and supported by the Taiwan Yacht Industry Association (TYIA).
It will be the only professional exhibition of yachts, yacht-related equipment and the marine industry in Taiwan, as well as the only indoor yacht exhibition in Asia that showcases a range of yachts, accessories, maintenance services, recreational activities, tourism and other related products and services.
The most spectacular yachts at the exhibition will be displayed in the columnless south hall of the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center.
The world's tenth largest yacht manufacturer, Horizon, will be exhibiting three luxury yachts at the show - the 110 RP series, which will also be the largest yacht on display, as well as an 88ft yacht and a 56ft yacht.
It will be the only professional exhibition of yachts, yacht-related equipment and the marine industry in Taiwan...
