Import duties in hong kong

Hi there - looking to ship my beneteau oceanis 31 from the UK (vat paid) to Hong Kong.

I've found a reasonable shipping quote but was wondering what the duties will look like once it arrives in Hong Kong. Any insights?

I will be keeping the boat there permanently as I am relocating there with work.

Would there be any issues down the road when I go to sell?

Also - any suggestions on reasonable places to keep the boat once it arrives - budget is a big consideration, so happy to keep her on a mooring can / ball to keep costs down.

And finally - would there be any major refits required? Gas / electric etc?

Massive thanks in advance..

Cheers

Chuck Buck

No duties in Hong Kong. Boat will be pretty much set to use with uk setup. Shore power, gas, etc all ok. But beware the mooring situation. Very tight. Better to contact clubs now to start finding a place.

Many thanks for your help.

I've been calling around - trying to find wet or dry storage - with little luck. Do you have any suggestions? Many thx!

RHKYC, Aberdeen boat club, hebe haven yacht club, Gold Coast marina, discovery bay marina, marina cove marina are your likely clubs. There is a real shortage of mooring spots. Try to speak on the phone with them.
