The boat Bewitched referred to is Hoopoe, and she's a 1982 Peterson
46 which has had a number of recent refits. The owners are asking HK $600K and she's moored at Hebe Haven Yacht Club. This boat doesn't seem to need a major refit
and looks as though you could do a lot of work on the mooring
(and still sail the boat).

Assuming you're looking to do a DIY refit
, I think your best bet would be to join Hebe Haven Yacht Club. They have a members workyard which can do haulouts, and there is a useful workshop area with benches, power, drill presses and vices. It's also close to a number of well provisioned chandleries. Most importantly, there are a few chaps doing professional boatworks and electrical
works who work out of this club. The joining fee is HK $35K for a family
. I've done some pretty extensive projects here and I've got to say that it's the only way to go for the DIY enthusiast!
Lastly, the Sai Kung area offers the best sailing grounds in Hong Kong - most of the east coast
is country park and there are a lot of fantastic beaches & islands.
PS - Hoopoe was a liveaboard
up until about two months ago so I assume it's in pretty reasonable shape inside. The couple selling have moved back to the UK.
