For many, Airbnb has quickly become one of favorite ways to find a place to stay around the world. This online accommodation website an save a lot of money and led to some of the most memorable stays. It can be cheaper than a hotel – or you could just spend HK$58,000 for a night aboard a Hong Kong ‘superyacht’. Currently, Hong Kong’s most expensive Airbnb experience, this superyacht can hold up to six guests in its three bedrooms – one master, one guest room and one ‘VIP room’.
It even has an on-deck cinema. It also has three bathrooms, a kitchen, a spacious dining area, an exercise bike and a cosy living area, as well as a staff of three crew members who come with the boat. Navigation is optional, at an extra HK$10,000.
Eric Noyel, the businessman who owns the vessel said: “I wanted to see if there’d be any interest on Airbnb but mostly it’s been from the press and people making movies. The two inquiries I had were asking for special prices, but it’s a flat fee.
“I have a liking for things about shared economies… it’s all about sharing values, sharing asset. I just like Airbnb so I thought I’d put something special on there. I think people are curious.”
The 24 meter boat is located in Hong Kong’s southern district, near Stanley and Ocean Park, and renters will be picked up by a dinghy from Deep Water Bay. Currently, it’s available to book almost any day between now and 2016. But, one more important thing – this luxurious experience requires a HK$38,000 deposit.
