New marina to open in HK
Delta Marina & Express Service will offer 600 moorings south of Lantau and a fast transfer service from multiple locations across Hong Kong.
Delta Marina is based in Hei Ling Chau typhoon shelter, south of Mui Wo
Delta Marina, a new mooring facility south of Lantau Island, is set to open in autumn and offer up to 600 moorings complemented by a 15-minute Delta Express tender service from Aberdeen. Delta Marina is situated in the Hei Ling Chau typhoon shelter, which is among new moorings facilities proposed by the Government’s Marine Department.
A Delta Express On-Demand tender service also connects Delta Marina to other pick-up/drop-off points including Central (22 minutes), Causeway Bay and Deep Water Bay on Hong Kong Island, as well as Discovery Bay (8 minutes) and Mui Wo (3 minutes) on the south coast of Lantau. The fast limousine is a comfortable, purpose-built 18-passenger tender that cruises at 24 knots.
Delta Express offers fast transfers to/from points across Hong Kong
“Hei Ling Chau typhoon shelter is a great facility just begging to be used,” says Bart Kimman of Delta Marina and Express Service.
“We are offering a seamless end-to-end service that includes assistance with the acquisition of a proper legal mooring in a Government Typhoon Shelter followed up by a service package to look after your boat that includes security, water, limited electricity, grey and black water pump-out, mooring inspection, typhoon preparation and assistance with on-site servicing, maintenance and repairs.”
Delta Marina can also provide interior/exterior cleaning, catering and provisioning services, dinghy and tender hire, water toy hire, and professional captain and crew hire.
Delta Marina offers a wide range of services for yachts
“It really is a one-stop-shop arrangement,” Kimman adds. “We’ll get you onto a mooring, look after your boat like it’s our own, get it ready to use, put a crew on board, tidy it up afterwards, and handle annual surveys, inspections and licensing requirements. Call it a yacht concierge service.”
The facility offers plenty of space for 100ft-plus superyachts as well as multihulls, which frequently struggle with marina access and mooring grids unsuitable for their beam. The Marine Department lists over 10,000 registered private leisure vessels in Hong Kong, while there are only about 5,000 public and private moorings.
Yacht Style’s annual Multihulls Issue highlights new models from the world’s leading cruising catamaran builders and features reviews of the Aquila 70, Lagoon 55 and Bali 4.8, as well as MCY 76 Skylounge and Ferretti Yachts 500, while Gulf Craft Chairman Mohammed Alshaali, Lee Marine and Water Revolution Foundation are also in the spotlight..
