It was a beautiful, crisp Hong Kong winter’s day at the Aberdeen Boat Club’s facility on Middle Island as a crowd of media and VIPs had gathered to welcome a luxury yacht to her new home.

Olivier Besson from Asia Yachting and Thibaut de Montvalon of Beneteau China mingled with marine industry figures and the assembled press to celebrate the Hong Kong launch of the as yet un-christened MCY86. There was a buzz of anticipation in the air as the official welcomes and speeches were made.

Making her grand entrance into the bay, the boat pirouetted to give all present a full 360-degree view before docking and welcoming guests aboard.

After looking through the vessel from stem to stern those gathered were unanimous in their praise for the yacht’s design and build quality, and for the taste and style of her owner.
