In 2008, After 11 consecutive months of zero order from foreign buyers, a number of Ping Sha yacht manufacturing enterprises are in the verge of collapse. In face of the status quo, Ping Sha yacht companies speed up industrial restructuring, start innovation and brand building. They find a way to supply to the domestic market while pending for the foreign orders.
At present, there are 18 yacht manufacturing enterprises in Ping Sha, 6 supporting manufacturing enterprises, and more than 30 yacht trading enterprises. The total investment is over $300 million USD. This year, Ping Sha yacht manufacturing and supporting enterprise will create a value of $237 million USD of business.
