Last year he launched the expedition yacht China as Asia's very first MCA-compliant yacht, but realized that the strongest market for his production would be long-range steel cruisers. He chose steel for its strength, counting on improvements in coatings and structural techniques to make it more appealing than in the past, but also because China will soon be the largest producer of ships in the world. Along with having an abundance of highly skilled classed steel workers, the neighborhood is also adjacent to one of the world's most sophisticated container terminals and a supply port, which now supports the Kingship yard. The yard itself can build a half dozen 245- foot yachts at once, launch them on an 800-ton dual railway grid, and house more than 180 devoted employees. For those project managers who might sigh at being exiled to Guandong Province, there's a swimming pool and, 90 minutes away, Hong Kong and Macao.
