Originally commissioned by Girongo the Hutt, infamous and charismatic outer-rim pirate, the Horizon Star Yacht is touted by many as the epitome of luxury. An engineering marvel, the Horizon featured in a popular self-titled holovid series in which Girongo the Hutt portrayed his exploits in a highly romanticized fashion. This high-profile exposure helped to inflate the Horizon Star Yacht's reputation as a high quality ship. Girongo the Hutt is believed to have profited greatly from his holovid's advertising of the Yacht.

One departure from standard Luxury Yacht designs was to include a starfighter-style cockpit in place of the more traditional bridge seen on other Yachts. With room for only a pilot, co-pilot, and a navigator, the Horizon is designed to be run by a small crew, giving a more hands-on feel when piloting the ship. The Horizon is more heavily armed than previous Yacht models, with twin heavy lasers flanking the cockpit. It is also fitted with a ventral tractor beam to aid in loading and unloading the ship's docking bay. Its inner, strut-mounted pods house the twin ion engines that propel the ship during sublight travel and its outer, wing-mounted pods house suites of advanced sensors, giving the ship a remarkable detection range. The interior of the ship is lavishly decorated with hardwood floors and stonework features. Typically, the Horizon's fixtures are adorned with precious metals.

With a unique combination of luxury and practicality, the Horizon is usually preferred by those looking to travel swiftly and in style. While not particularly suited to any one purpose, the Horizon's speed, weaponry and docking capabilities make it highly adaptable. For this reason, the Horizon is able to fulfill a variety of roles, making it the ideal home away from home for wealthy sentients across the galaxy.
