Early boost at Lantau HONG KONG: About nine months into the soft opening of Lantau Yacht Club (LYC) marina, over a dozen yachts are moored up. The majority are over 25m (82ft) in length. Built to the highest standards, LYC’s typhoon-sheltered marina offers 148 WORLD NEWS of accommodating superyachts of up to 100m (330ft). While COVID-19 took its toll on the general global economy, Asia witnessed an increase in boating interest. Yacht brands and agents recorded hiked or even record sales in Hong Kong in 2020. “We expect as the COVID-19 pandemic comes down and border restrictions loosen, there will be more inter-continent cruising activities,” says Charlotte Ho, director of hospitality, marketing and membership of Auberge Hospitality. “LYC, as a redeveloped marina, has berths available for existing and prospective yacht owners, as well as the capacity to welcome visiting yachts from abroad. Also, yacht owners who were not able to acquire an additional yacht or upgrade a yacht before, due to the lack of moorings, may now reconsider the purchase. What’s more, yacht owners looking for yachting staycations to try out new marinas are welcome to come to LYC on a visiting member basis,” she adds. D-Marin adds fourth Croatian marina CROATIA: D-Marin Global Marina Network has welcomed Marina Tribunj as the fourth destination in its 1,760-berth Croatia cluster. It is the fifteenth location in the group’s growing portfolio of boating destinations across the Mediterranean and the UAE. Marina Tribunj is located on the Adriatic coast in the centre of Dalmatia between the existing network destinations of D-Marin Mandelina and D-Marin Dalmacija. It is a peaceful marina with 220 wet berths and 50 dry berths, and onsite facilities include a full service boatyard, fuel station, technical boat services, marina restaurant and accommodation. “We are delighted to be adding Marina Tribunj to the group’s network,” said D-Marin CEO Oliver Dörschuck. “The marina has everything a boater could need, great facilities and excellent customer service delivered by an experienced marina team, berths of 10-60m (33-197ft) and is the first yacht club in Hong Kong capable and all in a location that provides access to some of the best island sailing in the world.” “As our fourth investment in Croatian tourism, we believe that the combination of excellent connections by road and air make travel possible even in the most challenging of times and this accessibility, along with world class destinations, makes for a highly compelling customer offer.” Marina Tribunj director, Tomislav Paškvalin, added: “Our team is delighted to become part of the D-Marin marina network. Our shared ambition to provide customers with the highest standards of service and opportunities to sail across so many locations in Croatia is a great development for Marina Tribunj.” – July/August 2021 19
