Dear Ms Pang,
Request for Access to Information
Thank you for your application for access to information on the number of
people living on board via e-mail of 18 November 2018 (Sunday) which was received
by the Marine Department on 19 November (Monday). I am writing to give you a
consolidated reply as follows –
As of today, there are 14 typhoon shelters and 11 yacht and boat clubs in Hong
Kong. You may wish to note that the numbers of typhoon shelters and yacht and boat
clubs are also retrievable from the departmental website1.
Meanwhile, you may wish to note that pursuant to the Merchant Shipping
(Local Vessels) (Dwelling Vessels) Regulation (Cap 548 sub leg A), no person shall
use a vessel as a dwelling vessel within Hong Kong waters unless a licence has been
issued in respect of the vessel before the commencement of the regulation in 2007.
As of today, there are four licensed dwelling vessels in Hong Kong and they are
moored at the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter.
Thank you for your interest in the matter.
Director of Marine
