Launched in 1982, the Hong Kong International Boat Show is back at Club Marina Cove in Sai Kung for its first post-Covid edition.
Marina Cove is the long-time host of the Hong Kong International Boat Show
Over 40 yachts representing almost 30 European and international builders are expected at this year’s four-day Hong Kong International Boat Show, which will be held from November 30-December 3.
Simpson Marine could have the biggest line-up with seven yachts from five brands, ranging from motor yachts and sailing boats to sailing catamarans and powercats.
