Those who want to open a Hong Kong company that offers various water-sports services or yacht cruises must comply with the existent licensing requirements not only for their type of vessel but also for their type of business activity. 

Types of vessels in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s coastline offers beautiful scenery and a multitude of options when it comes to water sports and pleasure boating. Sailing, boating, water skiing and other water sports are popular among tourists but there are many locals or expats who prefer to purchase their own vessel for personal boating purposes.
According to the local vessel classification system, pleasure vessels include cruiser vessel and open cruisers and auxiliary powered yachts. The cruiser is the type of vessel with a continuous upper deck and it has a limited number of persons if can carry onboard, according to its size.
All vessels are registered with the Hong Kong Marine Department. One of our Hong Kong company formation agents can help you comply with the existing requirements if you are a vessel owner.
