Our Story

Asia Yacht Services, “AYS” was founded in 2004 to offer a bespoke range of services to yachtsmen and yachtswomen in Asian waters including yacht sales, yacht charters and yacht support. Over time we had close relationships with well known brands such as Grand Banks, North Haven, Salona and Williams jet-tenders as well as representing famous Dutch super yachts builders Jongert, Moonen and Royal Huisman. The company is located in the Gold Coast Yacht & Country Club with its award winning 340 berth marina and we became the go to agents for visiting yachts and super yachts offering a reliable and economical service during their visits.​

2008 was a game changing year when AYS acquired the franchise to represent Northrop and Johnson in Asia. N&J were the first global brokerage house to open shop in Asia and our joint venture quickly grew to a thriving yacht brokerage with some 10 sales and charter brokers spread over the area. For 10 years Northrop and Johnson Asia was the leading international yacht brokerage with a successful business selling, chartering and managing large yachts in the HKG and South East Asia yacht arena. The pinnacle of this era was the sale of Sea Eagle 2, an 81M custom built Mega Sailing Yacht built by Royal Huisman in the Netherlands.

The global pandemic has been very fortunate for the leisure boating industry in Hong Kong. With lockdowns and other restrictions, people focussed on outdoors activities and hiking, camping and boating were the obvious benefactors.
This period proved to be a great opportunity for AYS to reinvent itself as the go-to yachting company for passionate sailing folk. AYS offers an excellent selection of yachts suitable to cruise and /or race in HKG waters and beyond. The selection of yachts includes agencies for the best brands in the business.

 

We are great believers in multihulls and take pride in representing Seawind Catamarans, Corsair Folding Trimarans and Nautitech Catamarans.

 

We promote One Design racing with the competitive J/80 and J/70 fleets. The legendary J/Boats are designed to compete and win in fleet and club racing. The chic Grand Soleil Yachts are well known for their competitive record but at the same time these fine yachts offer beautifully Italian designed interiors that are truly comfortable when not racing! For the cruising oriented families we offer the range of Bavaria yachts well known for their value for money concept in combination with German engineering prowess.

 


Yacht ownership needs the support of a professional team that assist you with that ownership. Be it as a sailing coach training you and your crew on your own yacht, be it as service manager to assure trouble free running or be it as the
yacht manager to make your boating time hassle free.

In addition AYS promotes innovative and exciting products that storm the market. The WASZP, the Voretex foiling pod and the incredible IS 410 performance Cat are very good examples of such must have toys!
 

Or the Dinnteco lightning protection equipment desirable for any yachtowner who intends to cruise the tropical waters.
