Welcome to the Hong Kong BIA
The Hong Kong Boating Industry Association (Hong Kong BIA) is a trade association that represents all sectors of the leisure marine sector. Hong Kong is a mature boating market, with - according to the Marine Department - close on 10,000 registered leisure marine vessels, along with thousands of unpowered leisure marine craft.
The pleasure boat industry itself has grown significantly in recent decades and now includes a myriad of services which from boat builders, brokers, yacht management, charterers and distributors, to chandlers, clubs, marinas, training organisations, sail-makers, technical and professional services and specialised media.
Many of the companies in this industry are small business but there are a growing number of companies with significant turnovers, and this multi-million dollar industry remains unrepresented at all levels both in Hong Kong and overseas. The Hong Kong BIA has been established in order to rectify this situation.
