With money, will you buy a private yacht?
Driving your yacht to the pure sea, there is only blue sky in front of you, only howling wind in your ear, and the gentle sound of mada is also melting into laughter... The private yacht activities that many people yearned for in the past are now approaching the rich people in Guangzhou step by step.
A few days ago, the first yacht training course approved by Guangdong Maritime Safety Administration officially started, marking that the yacht leisure activities in Guangzhou are also gradually on the track.
Boat players emerge from the lotus tip
In the past, we often saw yachts in Hollywood films or Hong Kong films, and we also saw dozens of yachts docked at Hong Kong ports. Some people said that "the development of a coastal city depends mainly on the number of masts in the port". It can be seen that yacht leisure is an activity that shows the economic situation of coastal countries and coastal cities. Indeed, yachting is one of the high-end leisure ways. Whether at home or abroad, there is a consensus that you can't play yachting without money.
With the development of domestic economy, many people can afford to buy yachts. Some "upstarts" in cities have privately bought sailboats and yachts. For example, nine yachts are docked at the yacht terminal of the Rhine Yacht Club in Panyu, Guangzhou. The price of these yachts ranges from more than 1.3 million yuan to 6 million yuan. Yachts are mainly owners of all walks of life in Guangzhou. They are also the first people to enter the life of yachts in Guangzhou. The number of yachts in Guangzhou is increasing.
As a luxury consumer goods, yachts have also been included in the scope of consumption tax collection since April 1. Owning private yachts has become a symbol of status. Not only the value of the yacht itself is not cheap, but the maintenance of the yacht also requires a lot of money every year. For example, a 40-foot yacht needs to spend about 150000 yuan per month on oil, maintenance and yacht club berthing fees.
Yacht leisure business has become a new favorite
Invite three or five friends to surf, dive, swim, fish on the sea by yacht. You can do a lot of activities, but you can do nothing. Just lying on the deck and basking in the sun is also a comfortable and leisure thing.
Turn off your mobile phone, set sail for the sea, stop at a quiet place, and a water salon of your own begins quietly: you can drink coffee, taste wine and cigars, and enjoy leisure time away from the noise with friends and relatives; Or in an open space, enjoy the pleasant scenery around, which is a rare enjoyment.
A few days ago, I visited a private yacht of up to 6 million yuan, and found that the interior decoration of the luxury yacht was exquisite, including the living room, master room, guest room, kitchen, bar, dance floor, karaoke sound, and all kinds of high-tech equipment, communication and satellite navigation systems, which perfectly combined various elements such as family leisure, business activities and outdoor enjoyment, reflecting the high quality and high taste of modern lifestyle.
Many foreigners play yachting purely for sports and leisure. Relatively speaking, Chinese people add a bit of work to yachting activities, which can be said to be both business and leisure.
Many Chinese bosses like to talk business with their partners on their yachts, which can not only show their strength to their partners, but also add a leisure atmosphere to official business and shorten the distance with their partners.
A private enterprise boss believed that the transfer of business talks, contract signing, project negotiations and other activities from a boring conference room or hotel to a sunny yacht would make both parties happier and clearer, and would also make the cooperation more smooth.
White-collar workers are potential players
Some people compare yachts to "floating luxury feast". Some professionals also believe that "yachts, like cars, are divided into multiple levels, not just the patent of the rich. Different people can play different yachts according to their actual situation."
At present, yachts belong to high-end consumption, but some people believe that there is broad space for the development of yacht industry. Because in addition to high-end yachts, popular yachts can also be developed to provide services for white-collar workers.
You can't play yacht without clubs. Just like cars need parking lots, yachts also need professional docks and professional maintenance, which all need professional yacht clubs to help manage.
In European and American countries, the annual maintenance fee, berthing fee and insurance fee of yachts are usually 10% of the yacht price. The membership fees of domestic yacht clubs vary according to the services they provide. Yacht clubs also provide yacht rental services for members and consumers. The head of Guangzhou Rhine Yacht Club said that in addition to some high-end consumers with economic strength who can own private yachts, white-collar workers can also hire yachts with three or five friends or company colleagues, and let the equipped captain drive the yacht to lead people to experience the leisure life at sea.
Relevant tips: get a formal driver's license before driving a yacht
In the coastal cities of China, some natural harbors provide unique conditions for the development of yacht industry. As the central city of the Pearl River Delta, Guangzhou is a waterfront city with rich water resources; In addition, Guangzhou is adjacent to Hong Kong and Macao and has considerable marine resources, which has laid a good foundation for the development of Guangzhou's yacht industry. For example, the Sanzhixiang Waterway of Luoxi New Town, where the Guangzhou Panyu Rhine Yacht Club is located, has an average of only 0.4 ships per hour, providing a good environment for the berthing and sailing of private yachts.
The number of private yachts in Guangzhou is increasing day by day. Some insiders predict that the sales of yachts in Guangzhou is expected to exceed 100 in three years, and more and more people will enjoy yacht leisure. However, with the continuous development of the yacht industry, there are few yacht driving licenses issued by the government. At present, about 70 people in Guangzhou have yacht driving licenses issued by non-governmental organizations. In February this year, the Guangdong Maritime Safety Administration issued the Measures for the Competency Examination, Evaluation and Certification of Yacht Drivers of the Guangdong Maritime Safety Administration, which officially issued a yacht driving license issued by the government, further standardizing the safety requirements for yacht driving.
A few days ago, Guangzhou Rhine Yacht Club and Guangzhou Maritime College jointly set up a yacht driving training center. The first training course attracted the attention of foreign enterprise presidents, private enterprise bosses, senior gold-collar workers, foreigners and other social elites. The training course approved by the Guangdong Maritime Administration will cultivate more than 10 students with the first batch of driving licenses officially issued by the Guangdong Maritime Administration.
At present, the yacht leisure in Guangzhou has begun to be standardized step by step, but the government has not formulated relevant regulations and standards in terms of manufacturing, service and other aspects of the yacht industry. A few days ago, Chen Zhongming, member of the Standing Committee of the Guangzhou Municipal People's Political Consultative Conference and member of the Standing Committee of the Guangzhou Municipal People's Democratic Revolution, submitted a proposal to attach importance to the development of the yacht leisure industry, believing that the yacht industry in Guangzhou will gradually become a bright spot in Guangzhou.
