Sanya to build itself into capital of world’s yacht industry
The development of its yacht industry has become an important indicator for the international level of any coastal tourist city.
At present, there are 219 yachts berthed in Sanya, of which 142 are registered to owners from overseas regions and countries, making it become the most popular place for overseas registered yachts in China.
To promote the yacht industry, the local government is working hard to publicize widely Sanya’s image as a yacht destination in China.
This March the city will host the first China UIM Class 1 World Offshore Powerboat Championship (CLASS1), which is regarded as a world-class sporting event.
The booming yacht industry in Sanya is attracting the attention of major European industry players who are seeking to tap into the growing interest of China’s wealthy in luxury lifestyles.
