Lantau Yacht Club welcomes first vessels to state-of-the-art marina

The Lantau Yacht Club welcomed the very first member yacht and visiting yacht last month (30th August 2020), which marks the very first milestone for Hong Kong’s newest marina.

The first vessel to mark the opening was 13-metre (45-foot) Jeanneau Sun Odyssy 479, followed by 20-metre (67-foot) Ferretti Yachts 670 which recently debuted in its Asian Premier in Hong Kong.

Victor Cha, deputy chairman and managing director of HKR International Limited, explained, “We are delighted as Lantau Yacht Club embarks on a new journey. This is an important milepost for both Hong Kong Resort Co. Ltd. and the yachting community in the region as LYC opens its doors, setting a new standard and direction for marinas and superyacht industry development in Hong Kong and in Asia.”

The opening of Lantau Yacht Club will be split into phases, this is phase one and opens two-thirds of the total berths ranging from 10 metres (33 feet) to 60 metres (197 feet). The marina office offers a gathering point for before and after cruising trips. A member service, concierge and marina operations team also offer one-stop services to members and crew, along with a front lawn patio to relax on whilst enjoying the view of the South China Sea. In addition, there is a service yard, hardstand and dry stack to provide maintenance and repair services.

Andrew Pitchford, sales and marketing manager Asia Pacific of Ferretti Group, elaborates, “It is our pleasure to bring our new Ferretti Yachts 670 to the highly anticipated LYC Marina. We are impressed by the world-class infrastructure and provisions, as well as the professional team. LYC is one of the few new marinas opened in the region in the last decade. We believe more visiting yachts will come to Hong Kong and berth at LYC as it offers custom-built superyacht berths that were not available before.”

The remaining sections of the marina and the clubhouse are still under refurbishment but are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
