Soak up the sun this summer on one of these luxury charters
With summer having firmly arrived in the SAR, and little chance of a trip abroad this year, it’s the best time to soak up the sun aboard a luxury yacht charter.
Hong Kong has an enviable array of bays and islands to explore, from the grassy slopes of Tap Mun in the northeast and the incredible rock formations and marine diversity in Sai Kung, to laid-back Lamma island in the south. The city also has some incredible dive and snorkel spots, for those who know where to look.
Hong Kong-based dealer and charter agency Asiamarine has over two decades of experience in the local boating industry and continues to be one of the leading providers of luxury yacht charters in Hong Kong and the wider Asia region.
As well as arranging yacht rental, the company can help charterers to hire a range of water toys, including flyboards, wakeboarding, inflatables and banana boats.
From outdoor cinemas to panoramic sunroofs, here are five of the most luxurious yachts available to charter for the day or overnight from Asiamarine in Hong Kong this summer.

Up to eight guests can stay in four luxury cabins, including a master suite – an ideal choice for more intimate overnight escapes in Hong Kong’s tranquil bays.
