Qingdao cruise and yacht industry seeks to rise
"Qingdao is so beautiful, I wish I could live here!" The tourist who made this exclamation came from Xi'an, she was based in the Olympic Sailing Center, looking at the sails full of eyes and could not help but make an exclamation. This is a scene that the reporter saw during the interview yesterday. In April this year, Qingdao introduced the "Qingdao Cruise Yacht Economic Development Plan", which pointed out the direction for the future development of the cruise yacht industry in Qingdao. This year's fair is held, but also for the cruise yacht industry to play a "strong needle". During the "12th Five-Year Plan" period, Qingdao will become the "emerging cruise yacht resort center in Northeast Asia".
Account for 6% of the national yacht manufacturing output
After the 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition, driven by the Olympic effect, Qingdao's yacht industry has made great development, and the yacht economy has reached the advanced level in China.
In the view of He Xiaoyan, deputy director of Qingdao Trade Promotion Commission, this is also riding on the east wind of the international yacht industry transfer trend. "Yachts are the mainstream sports and leisure tools in developed countries, and are known as the next 'consumer gold mine' after cars. After the international financial crisis, the international yacht industry has shown a trend of accelerated transfer from Europe and the United States to Asia and China." He Xiaoyan said, for example, the world's top five Italian Azimut yacht company has begun to seek business cooperation in Qingdao.
Figures show that there are 20 yacht manufacturing enterprises in Qingdao, with an output value of 300 million yuan in 2011, accounting for about 6 percent of the total output value of yacht manufacturing in China. According to the plan, one yacht manufacturing enterprise with output value over 1 billion yuan and four with output value over 500 million yuan will be formed in 2015, and the total output value of yacht manufacturing industry will reach 4 billion yuan.
"We are developing and manufacturing large yachts over 50 feet, which is the future direction of development." Zhao Jiashi, chairman of Qingdao Anox Thomson Yacht Company, said. By 2015, build a first-class R & D design platform, break through a number of key technologies, independent innovation capacity significantly improved; by 2020, become a well-known domestic and international yacht R & D design center.
Qingdao yacht club nearly 30
Driving on the golden coastline of Qingdao, a beautiful and finely carved yacht club as if a pearl, become the best interpretation of Qingdao's marine charm: Silver Sea Yacht Club, Qingdao International Yacht Club, Tangdao Bay Yacht Club, Haiquan Bay Yacht Club ......
Figures show that at present, Qingdao has nearly 30 yacht clubs of various types, accounting for 15% of the country, and the larger Qingdao Silversea International Yacht Club and Qingdao International Yacht Club are built with independent docks, water, electricity, oil supply and catering, accommodation, entertainment, fitness and other ancillary service facilities first-class, enjoying a high reputation in the industry, attracting well-known domestic and foreign yacht business agents to settle in the brand. Tangdao Bay, Haizhuan Bay and other large yacht club projects are accelerating construction. The number of enterprises engaged in marine tourism has reached 16, with 133 ships. By 2015, Qingdao's domestic first-class yacht clubs strive to reach five, with total sales revenue reaching 2.5 billion yuan, becoming China's yacht business and service center.
"The settlement of a large number of first-class yacht clubs will enhance the level of Qingdao's yacht service industry and improve the upstream and downstream industries, from which yacht manufacturing enterprises will also benefit." Qingdao blue wave yacht solution manager said.
Create a "sea tourism" business card
When it comes to the yacht industry, most people have the impression that it is high class and irrelevant to the general consumers. But in fact, on the contrary, the offshore cruise tourism and even the most initial seaside motorboat are part of the sea tourism. In the future, Qingdao City will highlight the development of "offshore cruise tourism" and do a full article of Qingdao sea tourism.
In this regard, Qingdao Yinhai Group Chairman Xin Hualong believes that, although Qingdao sea tourism industry started early, but the level of infrastructure construction is low, small and scattered tourism enterprises, enterprises operating low grade boats, operating routes short, single project, business management is not standardized and other issues are very prominent. "How to make full use of the advantages of marine resources, accelerate the development of marine tourism industry, cultivate marine advantage industry is a prominent issue." He said.
In the future, Qingdao City will take comprehensive ports, coastal tourist areas, resort areas, etc. as the basis, reasonably develop offshore island groups and island chains, scientifically plan and build offshore tourism facilities, guide the upgrading of offshore cruise ships, develop diversified cruise tourism products, and form Qingdao offshore cruise tourism network system. By 2015, the offshore tour boats will receive 6 million visitors, and the direct economic contribution will reach 800 million yuan, becoming a famous domestic marine leisure tourism resort center.
