Hong Kong’s Lantau Yacht Club has welcomed Tom Leung as the new marina manager, who is keen to prioritise safety at the marina.
Leung, who has worked in several maritime services providers and yacht clubs over the past 20 years, joined Hong Kong’s first 5 Gold Anchor marina at the start of the year. He will be responsible for overseeing marina operations at the club, which soft-opened in September 2020.
Tom Leung, marina manager at Lantau Yacht Club, said, “It’s an all-new experience to work at the only world-class marina custom-built for superyachts in Hong Kong. At Lantau Yacht Club, we are working with a group of top-tier customers, very professional captains and crew teams and industry leaders. So, the highest level of attention and services are prerequisites.” He added, “Never give safety a day off – that’s my motto. Safety is key for a top-notch marina.”
Lantau Yacht Club has confirmed a number of service contractors will be stationed at the marina starting from March 2022, to provide yacht care services, maintenance and yacht management services. A chandlery, water toys shop, yachting academy and wake surfing classes will also be available.
Ivan Lee, vice president of Lantau Yacht Club, commented, “Lantau Yacht Club’s mission is to offer premium yachting facilities and become the preferred mooring destination and yacht club in Hong Kong. We are delighted to have Tom on board. [He] has been working in several maritime services providers and yacht clubs, and brought with him a wealth of experience in marina operations and customer services. He is determined to go the extra mile to ensure the safety of the marina and that of our members and their properties.”
The club is aiming to host more industry events in 2022, dependent on covid restrictions. One of the scheduled events for the coming year is the Hong Kong Yacht Show organised by the Hong Kong Boating Industry Association.
