    Dear Members,

    2021 continues to be a strong year for the industry as people turn to water sports for leisure whilst travel is still restricted.

    Since the start of the year, the HKBIA council has been working hard towards hosting the first Hong Kong Boat Show at Lantau Yacht Club (LYC). We believe an industry led Boat Show will showcase the positive impact the boating industry has to our economy and community in Hong Kong. Talks with LYC had started early in the year, followed with months of preparation and planning. Due to the uncertainties of Omicron, the dates of the show will be announced later.

    In the meantime, the council will continue to plan for the show – stay tuned for further updates.

    More information can be accessed from the link below:

    Asia Yacht Press (AYP) has done it again! After a long period of Covid-delayed gestation, AYP are delighted to announce the arrival of a second edition of ‘Cruising Hong Kong’. “We sold out of the first edition, and were still getting enquiries” said Guy Nowell, “so we did it all over again!”

    Cruising Hong Kong is a lavishly illustrated voyage around the coastlines, bays, anchorages, and even water-accessible restaurants of Hong Kong. It’s v1.2, not vNew. It’s not a pilot – it doesn’t claim to be that detailed or comprehensive (although there have been suggestions…). It’s an informative cruise around the truly beautiful Hong Kong coastline, with a smidgen of history and some highly scenic geology thrown in, as well as information on charts, safety, local rules and regulations, speed limits, fuel docks and a great deal more.

    "Cruising Hong Kong will fill a gaping hole in any Hong Kong boating enthusiast’s bookshelf. Whilst it is true that this is a visual treat (Guy Nowell is not only a yachting photographer of some renown, but also a keen sailor with an intimate knowledge of Hong Kong's waters), this is much more than a coffee table publication. The team at Asia Yacht Press must be congratulated for producing a work that both inspires and informs. The book is packed with practical information and as such is a "must have" for anyone remotely interested in boating in Hong Kong." (Roger Eastham, former Marine Manager, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club).

    In a pocket-sized space, Hong Kong offers some of the most wonderful cruising grounds imaginable, and you’re never far from anywhere, even if it feels like it. The city is always just around the corner, but easily forgotten. This is truly ‘world-class water’. If you know, and have forgotten, you need Cruising Hong Kong. If you are new here and want to explore, you need Cruising Hong Kong. And if you have never cruised Hong Kong, you are missing out. Pay a visit: we have the guide.

    A must for every boat’s saloon, bridge, or wheelhouse: HK$460 (US$59) plus p+p.

    Copies can be ordered direct from Asia Yacht Press or online at or

    Please find the Secretary for Development's response for HKBIA's Industry Report :


    於七月十九日收到之行業報告書. 本局己跟”躍動港島南辨事處(IISO)”協調及一併回覆.

    謝謝分享該報告書. 其導出香港優閒遊艇工業近況資料及具前瞻性. 所關心事項亦為海事處之工作範籌, 明白此報告書巳與該部門分享.

    政府於2020年施政報告中提及其一重要發展項目為活化南區,以開發及擴建香港仔避風塘範圍, 增加船隻停泊區及陸上設施以配合需要. IISO現正與海港工程, 土木工程拓展署共同研究技術上可行之策略, 深入了解及加速進行制定初步工程設計項目. IISO同時亦與政府跨部門合作以增加土地設施及勾劃發展鴨利洲海旁活動空間, 包括龍舟存放區用以推廣水上友誼文化.

    觀塘避風塘方面, 政府明白仍需永久給予本港各類船艇平日於不尋常天氣底下棲息之用. 因此可能局部限制設計成為遊艇停泊專用區. 我們相信海事處會發表該部門對此看法. 在 閣下建議篇幅8.2中提及發展各類水上運動和水上康樂活動, 正與我們介紹及提昇香港水上友誼活動之決心接軌. 例如, 本局已準許多個水上運動組織於官塘避風塘用地以作陸上支援活動之用. 相信 閣下對政府提議在石澳石礦場復修後興建水上綜合運動中心有著濃厚興趣. 詳情可於網上溜覽於2021年七月八日遞交南區議會文件.
