    No orders for over 3 years and none on horizen Last launch 2014
    They blame Higher NZ dollar, but it is still only half a Euro And Euro yards such as Huisman have orders

    Wow!! I'm saddened to read that, what a fantastic company. Sad day.

    I also hear Jongert is going belly up in Holland, another great shipyard who build beautiful yachts and led the markets in the 70's and 80's.
