With the growth of China’s economy comes the awareness and growing interest of the people especially the high net worth individuals to the yachting lifestyle. We have seen this growth in the success of different yacht shows in different countries in the South East Asia including Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan just to name a few. These countries are haven for different heesen yachts for sale, cruise yachts for sale or any cabin cruiser boats for sale.

With the growing market for yachts in Asia specifically in China, There is a growing need to increase the number of marina in and around the region. We have seen this with the development of the yacht haven in Phuket as well as a plan to build another marina in Vietnam.
