The decommissioned 47-metre-long Golden Star was reborn as Dot, both a luxury property and a floating piece of Hong Kong heritage and culture. It boasts a cinema room and four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and it is eco-friendly, too
A true Hong Kong getaway home is up for grabs in the form of a luxurious yacht converted from the only Star Ferry to have ever been privately sold. Its asking price? HK$21 million (S$3.63 million).
The Golden Star, named after its predecessor that retired in 1968, is a UK-built vessel that measures 47 metres long, and 11 metres longer than others in the Star Ferry fleet. This particular Hong Kong heirloom was built in the city’s glory years of the ’80s, a period of economic flourishing as well as the rise of Canto-pop culture and the golden age of Hong Kong cinema.
