    China's Pleasure yacht industry

    Until very recently the coastline of China has been neglected from the Yachters standpoint, being controlled by, and dedicated in the most part to, Merchant and military fleets. Pleasure yacht marinas are sprouting up in many cities from Dalian all the way down to Macao.
    With the acceptance of "western Lifestyles" and enormous new found wealth evident in every major Chinese coastal city, I (as do many others) predict the Chinese domestic market to be enormous within the next 5- 10 years.
    Good luck in your endeavor...we're here to assist...

    Some food for thought Hunterye
    China like other major neighbouring countries suffers from corruption at all levels. Getting a enterprise established in China requires contacts (a cost) capital (very deep pockets) time to set up (cost) established international markets for products (wealthy Chinese purchase foreign made products for quality assurance). China like many opening areas offers cheap labour for cheap products but the cost of establishing infrastructure, resoursing expat expertise and setting up agency representation to access your target market require long term commitment and those very very deep pockets.

    The Chinese will no doubt think the same way as the Thias do about boats, they like them but don't understand messing around with them in blazing sunshine.

    Hong kong is the same ,I would say almost all are corperate owned and never leave the dock untill Sunday . Then its black suit and tie with the air con on. A quick trip round the bay and back to the dock and home. Next week its some one elses turn. Sitting up on deck with a G&T is tolerable but only for show.

    The Thais can not understand the cost involved ( niether do I) in the maintenance and the labour involved to do nothing with it. A fishing boat is different or charter,---- but just to play with ???? Bungalow better---and cheaper.

    You know what after writing this, I think they are right.
