From jet skis to an onboard piano, here are five of the most luxurious yachts available to charter this summer in Hong Kong with Simpson Yacht Charter
Hong Kong’s mandatory three-week hotel quarantine period is now infamously the longest in the world, leaving many Hongkongers looking closer to home for their summer getaways this year.
The ongoing travel lockdown has seen interest in the local charter market boom since 2020, as private groups turn to the SAR’s numerous bays and islands to get their fix of sun, sea and sand in the summer heat.
Hong Kong has astonishing marine biodiversity in its tropical waters, with plenty of impressive dive and snorkel opportunities if you pick the right location, making it an excellent place for a day or overnight yacht charter.
Simpson Yacht Charter is a main division of dealership and brokerage Simpson Marine, which offers luxury yacht charters in Hong Kong and the wider region. Simpson can arrange yacht rental for groups by the day or overnight, as well as arranging a wide selection of water toys and inflatables, professional crew and catering.
