Converted from a Star Ferry, The Wan—formerly known as Dot—is now available for rentals

Remember the Star-Ferry-turned-luxury yacht that was on sale for HK$21 million last year? Now, she can be hired for staycation and event bookings. 

Available for staycation rentals as well as shoots and events, the yacht offers packages starting from HK$60,000 via luxury venue rental firm Exclusive Venue. Perfect for parties or even weddings at sea, the yacht can host up to 70 standing guests, or 50 seated dinner guests.

The yacht has had a few different names over the years. In her days as a Star Ferry shuttling passengers across the Victoria Harbour, the boat was named Golden Star. At the time of her sale last year, she was named Dot, and today, she is known as The Wan.

The boat spans over 6,000 sq ft of living space, and an additional 4,000 sq ft for storage and utilities, according to Asia-Pacific Boating

Inspired by New York-style lofts, The Wan offers an industrial-chic aesthetic, with warm wooden floors juxtaposed against sleek white walls. She also has a large double-height ceiling lounge area, a reading room, dining room, cinema room and four bedrooms with ensuites. A gorgeous sundeck is the ideal spot for sunbathing and al fresco dining.

The boat is currently moored at Tai Tam Reservoir. With the end of restrictions almost in sight, perhaps it’s time to start planning your next big party.
