    Fountaine Pajot group is extremely glad to join the active Hong Kong Boat Association and become an equally active member in all aspects promoted by the association. Being one of the world leading group in yacht production, we hope that Fountaine Pajot group will bring extra power toward its designated goals.

    Fountaine Pajot has witnessed the ever-growing demand for boating in the region but also the various hurdles all yards are facing to penetrate the markets, especially in Hong Kong where mooring and berthing availability are now paramount to success. We seek to offer our support to the whole industry and of course to gain visibility through the association for both our sailing range (Dufour Yacht) and our catamaran one (Fountaine Pajot). Being a member of Hong Kong Boating Industry Association is the next obvious move for the group.

    We deeply thank the association for its work and our new membership that we will celebrate in style soon.

    Prevention and Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business and Premises) Regulation (Cap. 599F)

            According to the latest directions on scheduled premises under Cap. 599F (, if relevant premises (such as private vessel) falls under Cap. 599F Schedule 2's stipulation of premises that are maintained or intended to be maintained for hire for holding social gatherings, such premises may be open subject to relevant requirements and restrictions till 9 June 2021.  Please refer to the link for full details of the latest directions on scheduled premises:

            The Government is considering the next phase of the gradual return to normality under the new direction in fighting the epidemic, taking into account the need for further incentives to encourage vaccination.  We will review the various measures in place from time to time in accordance with the development of the epidemic situation, and make suitable adjustments taking into account all relevant factors.  For further information and latest updates, please read and regularly visit the COVID-19 thematic website (

    Manifest Marketing Ltd (MML) has completed its acquisition of Storm 

    Force Marine Ltd (SFML), with SFML becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of 

    MML, completing a three month transition period.

    Bryan Van Dale has taken the position of Managing Director of Storm 

    Force Marine Ltd. Bryan has a long history in Hong Kong and via his 

    company MML has very strong links into vertical and particularly 

    government markets in Hong Kong. MML has in fact been a long term 

    customer of SFML prior to this acquisition.

    Graham Parkes has transferred from MML and is now in charge of day to 

    day operations at SFML as the new General Manager.  Graham has a 34 year 

    history in Hong Kong including 14 years with MML where he has handled 

    project-based sales of high-end systems and equipment to various Hong 

    Kong Government departments.

    Danny Li  (Engineering) and Azam Mohammad (Logistics) remain with SFML 

    and both will continue to support SFML's customers and suppliers going 


    As part of the acquisition process some non core brands have been passed 

    on to a new company, Xieite Limited, headed by long term Hong Kong 

    resident James Pearson. Lists of the brands retained by Storm Force 

    Marine and those now passed on to be handled by Xieite are attached.  

    Storm Force Marine and Xieite are committed to work together to support 

    their customers going forwards.

    This is an exciting time: SFML has had a broad market selling to 

    hundreds of trade customers in Hong Kong, China and regionally, 

    primarily technical products from suppliers like Sleipner, Victron 

    Energy, Frigomar, Advanced Systems Group, Whale, Gianneschi, Groco 

    amongst forty others. With the MML acquisition the vertical market 

    possibilities are also opened up which should lead to an expansive 

    future for SFML under its new management and ownership.

    Xieite specialises in the more retail, sailing and outdoor pursuits 

    orientated brands, and will be selling through their new dedicated 


    The previous principals of Storm Force Marine, Louise Connolly and Simon 

    Boyde, are working in a consulting role to both SFML and Xieite going 

    forwards and are actively assisting the new owners and managers of Storm 

    Force Marine and Xieite as the transition completes. They will continue 

    to do so even after they relocate to Europe to pursue other interests.
