Kingship delivers Express Ferry to Delta Marina
Kingship Marine has delivered an Express Ferry cruiser to Delta Marina, whose first customers have had approvals for private moorings at the Hei Ling Chau typhoon shelter.
The Taxi sign resembles those on Hong Kong’s red taxis
The new Delta Marina & Express Service in Hong Kong has received its first purpose-built Express Ferry, which was built by Kingship Marine. Topped by a ‘TAXI’ sign like those on the city’s red taxis, the Express Ferry is a customised version of Kingship’s 38ft Patrol vessel, with a deep V-shaped hull, aluminium construction and a cruising speed of 25-30 knots.
The entire seating area is covered by a hardtop
The Express Ferry will transport customers and crew to and from major public piers in Hong Kong to Delta Marina, a fully-serviced private mooring facility at the Hei Ling Chau typhoon shelter, which is situated opposite Mui Wo on the southeast coast of Lantau. Before the marina is fully operational, the Express Ferry is available for day charter and on demand point-to-point trips.
Delta Marina & Express Service will offer 600 moorings south of Lantau and a fast transfer service from multiple locations across Hong Kong.
Delta Marina was announced earlier this year and applications by its first clients for private moorings have been approved by the Marine Department.
The Express Ferry provides comfortable seating
Bart Kimman of Delta Marina said: “The Marine Department has started issuing approvals on private mooring applications from Delta Marina customers, and is still processing other applications. We request those with approvals in-hand or those who haven’t applied but are still potentially interested in mooring at Delta Marina to get in touch, so we can work with you on designing the optimal ground tackle and mooring for your specific vessel.”
Kingship Marine, one of Asia’s leading yacht builders, has developed a new line of power catamarans from the KingCAT 51 to the KingCAT 138.
