Lantau Yacht Club, Hong Kong’s first 5 Gold Anchor facility, launched the city’s first-ever yachtcation package in August 2021 and since then an increasing number of boat owners have sailed to the city’s newest marina.
A HK$3,500 package for a 20m yacht includes one night’s wet berthing, a four-course dinner for two with complimentary sparkling wine at Caffè Napoli, two transfers within Discovery Bay and complimentary use of tennis courts and shower facilities. A special 15 per cent discount is offered for experiencing Spa Botanica in Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong hotel.

Yachtcations can also benefit from unique experience programmes, such as the newly added summer afternoon tea at an exclusive property in Discovery Bay offering a sunset sea view. This limited-time offer means visitors can enjoy Hong Kong’s newest marina and a new luxury residential property, so offering a taste of the premium yachting and resort-living lifestyle.
Both members and visiting members speak highly of LYC and enjoy the many activities in and around Discovery Bay. The Colven family is among regular yachtcation guests at Lantau Yacht Club, averaging one visit a month.

“LYC is the only yacht club in Hong Kong that offers berthing flexibility through the yachtcation package,” Mr Colven said. “It’s the newest marina and we’re impressed by the top-notch facilities and impeccable services. What we particularly love about the stay is the dining experience at Caffè Napoli. We feel the team’s passion for food and how they wholeheartedly create the best dining experience for their guests.”
Ivan Lee, Vice President of LYC, said: “Over the past months, we saw a good response towards the Yachtcation packages, especially during weekends and holidays. Visitors enjoy the modern facilities at the marina while revelling in the tranquillity in their private space.

“Some also take the opportunity to explore the dynamic Discovery Bay and enjoy the activities available here in Discovery Bay such as hiking, beach fun, ice skating, alfresco dining at D’Deck or a relaxing spa at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong. Some of them also take the adventure to Lantau waters, for instance, to Cheung Sha, Pui O for water activities and fishing.”
The yachtcation stays have also been highly commended by those in the boating industry, who have supported the luxury getaway by inviting their clients.
