Sick of the same old tour cruises, sharing a boat with strangers and not having any control of your course? Then you need to charter your own boat, or more specifically, your own luxury yacht. There are plenty of opportunities on the island of big rollers, so securing your own seafaring vessel is a breeze.
Planning on making a party of it? Ships such as the luxury motor yacht 85 are perfect for shindigs on the water as they can accommodate up to 40 people with spacious in and outdoor seating areas. The ultra-comfy seats are usually also accompanied by tables, making them perfect for dining beneath the stars or in the light of a golden sun. Although catering services are readily available, many yachts offer kitchen facilities so smaller groups can cook up a storm of their own or simply keep the drinks cool.
Depending on the length of your rental, you’ll have the opportunity of sleeping on the calming waves of the sea with roomy cabins and en suite facilities for your convenience. Better yet, you won’t have to worry about midnight shipping emergencies as many operators offer the added bonus of a full crew to assist with steering and other odd jobs about the boat so you can sit back and relax, hassle-free.
Although it’s always each to their own, one recommendation for such a vessel in Hong Kong is a sunset cruise over the island’s calm waters, with nothing but you, your guest(s) and a cold bottle of bubbles to really complete the picture.
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
If you have to opportunity, make sure to get out on the water at night fall as this is when the Hong Kong Symphony of Lights is in full display. A truly unforgettable experience.
