China is counted among the major yacht manufacturing countries of the world and is witnessing an increase in the number of yacht manufacturing units, which can be attributed to the low cost of production in the country. The cost of manufacturing yachts in China is 20-30% lower than European and North American countries.
Several foreign players are now manufacturing yachts in China to lower their costs of production. Kingship Marine and Yantai Raffles are some of the key foreign players having manufacturing facilities in China.
The increasing number of high net worth individuals in China is also contributing to the growth of luxury goods market. The demand for yachts in China is growing faster than the global average.
