The Queen Long Marine shipyard was founded in 1978 by the Huang family and remains in full family operation and ownership to this day via company President Joseph Huang, Vice-President Jane Huang and Commercial Director Andy Huang. Based in Kaohsiung, the yacht-building capital of Taiwan, the 117,300 sq ft shipyard is home to a 32,000 sq ft main construction hall, dedicated 18,000 sq ft laminating hall, a large paint facility, extensive design and administration offices and their famous on-site 3m-deep full-sized yacht testing tank complete with a thriving population of ornamental Koi Carp. A team of around 100 highly skilled shipwrights, laminators, engineers, electricians and painters are employed directly by the shipyard to build the Hylas Yachts range of sailing and motor yachts.
The Hylas Yachts brand established by Queen Long Marine in 1985 has rapidly become associated with the production of the highest quality blue water performance sailing yachts and motor yachts from some of the most iconic naval architects including German Frers, Sparkman & Stephens, Dixon Design, Dean Salthouse and top interior design firms like HotLab of Italy.
Yacht-building at Queen Long Marine has been a family business for over almost 40 years, with each generation building on the success of the previous, to create some of the world’s finest cruising yachts.
The Hylas Yachts journey began with the German Frers designed Hylas Yachts 42, and 44 and Sparkman & Stephens designed Hylas Yachts 47. These iconic designs laid down the clear foundations of the brand which would develop and refine over time to create the range of yachts widely regarded as being amongst the best in the world.
Each new Hylas Yacht is custom-finished to her owner’s precise specifications and requirements.
The world of yacht design and manufacturer is one of continuing and rapid development.
