Evaluating the Feasibility of a Historic Ship ExhibitionPublic

This project assesses the feasibility of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum to berth a historic ship at Central Pier 8 in Victoria Harbour to be used as a permanent 'floating' exhibition. Our team examined all pertinent maritime laws and undertook a comprehensive review of harbour movements, pier loading conditions, and best-practice safety guidelines. Interviews with local experts facilitated determining cost estimates for vessel purchase, maintenance, typhoon sheltering, and fendering. A team survey estimated the price the public is willing to pay to see such an exhibit and determined that a tall ship or junk were the most popular options. It was concluded that exhibition feasibility is highly dependent on current uncertainties over a set of technical, market, and financial conditions.
