Dragon Boat Racing: Enjoy Hong Kong’s Most Scenic Festival on a Yacht

The Dragon Boat Festival in Hong Kong is a vibrant celebration, which takes place on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month each year. This year it falls on 10 June. The traditional holiday has a rich history and offers a unique opportunity for locals and tourists to immerse themselves in the festivities. One exciting way to enjoy the festival is by watching the Dragon Boat Races from the deck of a luxurious yacht with Simpson Marine’s festive packages.


The thrill of Dragon Boat Races

The Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races are a highlight of the festival. More than 100 local and international teams gather to compete in the iconic Victoria Harbour. The races are exhilarating, and the atmosphere is electric. It’s also free to watch the races from the harbourfront – Stanley Main Beach offers the best views. For a more exclusive experience, here are some suitable yachts that we recommend for your race-watching day trip:



The Azimut 54 has one of the largest flybridges in its class, making it a perfect platform for race-watching. Enjoy the thrill of the race from the flybridge, the aft or the bow of the yacht. The yacht can carry 20 guests, and accommodate six guests overnight if an after-party is planned.

Capacity: 30 Guests

Charter rate: HKD 35,000/ 4 hours ; HKD 38,600/ 8 hours


BALI 4.0

This catamaran features an expansive open saloon and cockpit that seamlessly merge into one space.
