Boating in HK

Boating articles and information

There are lot of things going on in the Asian boating markets. We believe it is our duty to provide right and useful information to boat owners and people who are considering to buy boats. Here we have some articles that are related to boating in Hong Kong, and provide some useful information of the Asian boating industries. There is a mixture of technical information as well and some helpful tips for people who are considering to buy and sell their boats. Our aim is not just to sell our products but to also think of the long term benefit and well being of the industry. Many times our experience and know how turns into a useful consultation for politicians who are interested in developing a genuine industry. We have consulted numerous government departments on how to develop the marine industry and create a diversified strong employment. There is also a book published “The Business of Boating in Asia” by us which serves as a interesting guide to understand and develop the industry. So far Asia seems to be suffering from high tax policy paralysis which keeps it from reaching its full potential in this industry compared to the western markets. However, as Asia grows and the information flows freely and as the majority becomes more educated the governments are likely to adjust their policies.  Here in this section, we provide as much information and interesting topics for people to understand more about the industry. We hope you find this page interesting and and the information here valuable. Always feel free to contact us to discuss related topics.
