In recent years, Hainan has been determined to grow its marine and yachting industries into a key component of a wider tourism strategy, after its aim to build itself into an international tourism island was upgraded to a national strategy.
To date, there have been three well-developed yacht ports set up in Haikou and Sanya, namely Sanya Visun International Yacht Marina, Sanya Serenity Marina and Haikou Xinhu Island Port. Meanwhile, there are more than 100 yacht sales and service companies with up to 831 berths on the island.
To further boost the development of the yacht industry within the whole province, the Hainan government plans to add more new yacht wharfs in other cities and counties like Qionghai, Lingshui, Ledong in the near future.
