Luxury yachts to sail on Beijing waterway

Beijing, Nov 20 (IANS) A yacht club which is claimed as Beijing's first and comparable to the world's best examples of such centres is to be set up on a major waterway running through the city's downtown, Xinhua reported.

Luxury yachts will shuttle on the 10−km Kunyu river, which runs southward from the Summer Palace into Beijing's city centre, according to a contract signed on the weekend between the Beijing Jing Cheng River Basin Tourism Development Inc. and the Beijing Jing Cheng Long Mai Yacht Club Inc.

The Summer Palace, mainly dominated by Longevity Hill and the Kunming Lake, covers an expanse of 2.9 sq km, three quarters of which is water.

The two companies will jointly develop the water−bound sightseeing project to cater for business receptions, recreation and cultural activities on a river that dates back to ancient times.

"The club will be operated based on yacht management on the Seine, Rhine and other famous rivers around the world," said Ding Hua, board chairman of the Beijing Jing Cheng Long Mai Yacht Club Inc.

The project will be run on a membership basis. It will also offer yacht leasing, modern office space, and family outings, said Ding.
