Based in Hong Kong, Kingship Marine builds superyachts is located at ZhongShan port in the centre of the Pearl River Delta District.
In 2004, Kingship Marine was founded by Roger Liang, who came from a boat-building family. He had worked with shipyards Baglietto in Italy in the 1980s and Green Bay Marine in Singapore in the 1990s.
Kingship’s 33-meter Expedition 110, launched in 2006, was designed by Ward Setzer and Sea Quest. It was hailed as the perfect marriage of western design and eastern manufacturing expertise.
Launched by Kingship in 2007, the first Magellan Explorer superyacht, Princess K, utilised the skills of designer Pieter Beeldsnijder of PB Design (engineering and naval architecture) and Luiz de Basto (interior design).
The 42-metre Star, delivered in 2012, was designed by Vripack. The superyacht’s traditional a navy blue hull and white superstructure invokes images of a 1960s-style retro superyacht, while her naval architecture, engineering and systems are all cutting-edge.
Kingship is the first builder in Asia to specialise in constructing superyachts of steel hull and aluminium, and the first in Asia to build luxury yachts in compliance with Lloyds Register and MCA. The shipyard imports its hulls as pre-formed kits from European steel-cutting specialists. Kingship also has a successful luxury yacht refit business.
