“A unique Star Ferry conversion with a very real Hong Kong story to tell, DOT is truly a piece of floating history for sale.” Miles Clark, a spokesperson for yacht broker Ocean Independence told HKFP.

“She would suit a family looking for space, which is a rarity in Hong Kong, or those who like to cook and entertain, as the social spaces offered are boundless. DOT is the perfect platform to escape the flurry of activity ashore and to relish peace and tranquillity found on board.”

Star Ferries usually shuttle passengers between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon peninsula.
