Buying a yacht is the ultimate dream for many in Hong Kong as you can cruise up and down the harbour in style, or soak up the sun while relaxing off one of the many picturesque islands that are just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Many people view a luxury yacht or boat as the ultimate status symbol, but in order for it to maintain its elegance, it needs to be properly cared for and undergo comprehensive maintenance every so often.
If you are a new marine vessel owner in Hong Kong, you might be wondering how to care for your boat or yacht and the maintenance procedures it needs to go through. Our quick guide provides you with all the details.
What maintenance needs to be done?
When it comes to proper yacht or boat maintenance, here’s what needs to be done:
Annual haul out
Regular machinery hours recording
Service history recording
Supporting documentation management
Identify signs of premature failure
Ensure every part from the engine to the stabiliser is well maintained

In addition to all the comprehensive maintenance and checks that need to be done, the general aspects of your yacht or boat cannot afford to be neglected either. To ensure your vessel is spick and span, it is necessary to do the following:
Comprehensive wash and clean – At least once a month or ideally every two weeks.
Regular systems check – Everything from the batteries to the engines, fuel and air conditioning needs to be inspected to ensure it is smooth sailing when you are out on the water.
Thoroughpolishing – All owners want their yacht or boat to be looking its best. That’s why regular polishing and cosmetic repairing of your luxury marine vessel should be included in the care and maintenance procedure.
Engine, generator and stabiliser servicing – Have this done annually to ensure all the essential components are well managed to support warranty coverage.
