Yacht marina, sales center planned in China

Chinese organizers of the inaugural 2011 Macau Yacht Show - Fujian Auto China Conference and Exhibition Co. and Fuzhou Auto China Yachts Management Co. - recently announced their latest project: the Wangzi Marina Club and Fuzhou Auto Yachts Sales Centre.

“We believe that Fujian province shows great promise for the development of a leisure marine industry, and boating in general. Geographically, Fuzhou is ideally positioned between Zhujiang, Changjiang and Taiwan,” Fujian Wanzi Yacht Sales Co. Ltd. chairman Hongguo Wang said in a statement.

In 2009, a government report identified Fujian province as appropriate for the encouragement of boating activities because it is on the coast of the Taiwan Strait.

In 2011, the Fuzhou municipal government produced an overall plan for developing the Fuzhou yacht industry. This new venture is a direct result of that initiative.

The soft open of the first yacht marina in Fuzhou is set for March. The first stage of the facility is expected to accommodate 20 yachts from 80 to 100 feet and 40 vessels from 30 to 60 feet.

The second phase of the project will create berthing for more than 200 large or medium-sized yachts.

Also in March, Fuzhou Auto China Yacht Management Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Fujian Wangzi Yachts Sales Co. Ltd., will open its first Yacht Sales Centre, a facility to promote the marketing and sales of a number of boat brands. The center is designed to attract and display more than 100 brands from the United States, Italy, the U.K., France, Germany, Australia and Taiwan.
