World's Largest SCRIMP Megayacht Hull


World's Largest SCRIMP Megayacht Hull

Horizon Group, Taiwan’s largest yacht builder and sixth largest luxury boat builder in the world, has announced that a record-breaking one piece SCRIMP yacht hull is currently under construction at Horizon Yachts subsidiary Atech Composites in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan. Work is well underway on a 130 feet long SCRIMP hull for the Horizon Premiere S130 model, the longest one piece SCRIMP yacht hull ever attempted in the world.

The SCRIMP System of laminating fibreglass hulls was first introduced to Taiwan in early 1999 through the United Ship Design & Development Centre (USDDC). Horizon Yachts subsidiary Atech Composites is the first SCRIMP licensee holder in Taiwan. Atech has been applying infusion technology to all sizes of hulls, decks and superstructures for the past five years. Today, infused resin flow is easily controlled in three dimensions to wet through hulls as long as 130 feet. Single-skin or sandwich shell plates and the main longitudinal and transverse structures are infused in one shot.

The record-breaking 130 feet SCRIMP hull incorporates a sandwiched bottom and side shell with a core thickness of 60mm. All main girders of the hull have been infused together in one piece and a staggering total of 8 tons of resin has been infused into the hull (comprising 7.4 tons of fibreglass with a 4.7 tons core). The SCRIMP laminated hull will serve as the platform for one of Horizon Group’s larger yacht classes from the company’s new Premier Yacht boat yard. Florida based yacht designer JC Espinosa is designing the Horizon 130, which will have an overall length of 39.62 meters, a beam of 7.98 meters and a displacement of 211 tonnes. This is the largest category of luxury yacht currently being built at Horizon, with a matching price tag of US$12,500,000.
