The Hong Kong Gold Coast waterfront precinct includes the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel, Gold Coast Piazza, Gold Coast Residences and Gold Coast Yacht & Country Club, where over a dozen boats will be on display as luxury yachts make their debut in the event.
Absolute Marine, Marine Italia, NextWave Yachting and Simpson Marine are among leading yacht dealers participating in the weekend event, which returns for the first time since 2017. Representing Absolute in Hong Kong, Absolute Marine is planning to show the 58 Fly, Navetta 58 and Navetta 73 flybridge motor yachts by the inland Italian builder.
Simpson Marine, Asia’s largest yacht dealer, is set to display an SL106A superyacht, SL78 and SX76 by Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo, a Squadron 50 flybridge motor yacht by British builder Fairline, and Gran Turismo 41 and Gran Turismo 45 cruisers by French yard Beneteau. NextWave Yachting will show a Capoforte CX240 day boat from Italy.
On land, Hong Kong Gold Coast will transform into a series of car-inspired lifestyle and entertainment zones offering a range of motoring-inspired experiences. The motor car line-up includes a McLaren F1, Mercedes CLK GTR and Porsche 911 GT1 from the 1990s, displayed together in Hong Kong for the very first time.
Hubert Aw, General Manager of Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel and Gold Coast Yacht & Country Club, said: “The Gold Coast Motor Festival has been thoughtfully curated as one of the must-see attractions in Hong Kong.
