The new Lantau Yacht Club in Hong Kong has been awarded 5 Gold Anchor status by the Marina Industries Association.
Lantau Yacht Club can accommodate megayachts up to 100m
The Marina Industries Association (MIA) based in Australia has awarded Lantau Yacht Club (LYC) with 5 Gold Anchor status a year after the club’s soft opening in September 2020. The typhoon-sheltered marina is in Discovery Bay on Lantau Island and is the city’s first purpose-built superyacht facility.
Ivan Lee, Vice President of Lantau Yacht Club, said: “We are delighted Lantau Yacht Club has been accredited as a 5 Gold Anchor Marina on its first anniversary. All infrastructure and facilities, on water and on shore, were designed and built according to the most stringent requirements.
“The systems, procedures and customer service have been carefully crafted to offer an outstanding environment and experience. Lantau Yacht Club will challenge its own status quo and provide a holistic yachting experience for our members and visitors, making it the preferred yachting destination in Hong Kong and in the region.”
Lantau Yacht Club has 148 berths for boats from 10-60m
Five Gold Anchors is among the highest accolades that the industry awards and is reserved for marinas that offer customers consistently high standards of service and facilities. Lantau Yacht Club offers 148 berths ranging from 10m to 60m and is the first marina in Hong Kong capable of accommodating superyachts up to about 100m.
Andrew Chapman, President of MIA, said: “We are very proud to accredit Lantau Yacht Club as a Gold Anchor Marina. Each rated marina is subject to a rigorous, independent audit of their services and facilities.”
The audit assesses 86 separate criteria covering management processes, the condition and maintenance of the marina, environmental practices, and ancillary facilities and services.
