Hong Kong boat search

Hi There,

I have just moved to HK and love it here so far. Looking to get back into sailing but finding it hard to a) find a 20 - 30 foot used sailboat in somewhat good shape at a reasonable price and b) find a mooring for said boat. I've owned a J-24, Catalina, 22, Catalina 25, Trapper 30, Beneteau Oceanis 31 and a Beneteau First 36.7.

Any help / advice / tips would be greatly appreciated.

PS - I'm not opposed to buying a 1/2 or 1/4 share of a boat either. So if anyone has a sailboat in HK and is looking to split the bills, please let me know!

All the best!

Spend time at the yacht clubs, crew for people, and talk to everyone you meet. When I lived there most boats sold by word of mouth to friends, or via club notice boards.

Re: Hong Kong boat search

I sailed Hobie Cats in HKG for several years. There was (and I believe still is ) a very active club across the bay from Stanley Village. They run a ferry across to the club from Stanley Main Beach at weekends.

There are also a couple of good brokers in HKG. Try calling Garry at Saffron Marina brokers in Aberdeen. I had some conversations with him last year and he was very helpful.

I was in HKG for the weekend in late Nov. I would go back tomorrow to live if somebody would offer me the right job!

Good luck.
