Hainan is committed to develop its marine and yachting industries as it considers them to be an integral part of the tourism sector. The show will be making its premier with strong support from the Hainan government who will be the host sponsor of Asia’s premier show and concentrate on the luxury superyacht and megayacht sectors.
