Hong Kong Ferry (Holdings) Company Limited (Chinese: 香港小輪(集團)有限公司) (SEHK50) is a holding company in Hong Kong involved in property development, ferry, shipyard, travel and hotel operations. It operated franchised ferry services in Hong Kong until 2000, when its ferry licence was transferred to New World First Ferry. Its remaining marine businesses are dangerous goods vehicular ferry service, vessel chartering, floating restaurants and marine diesel oil trading.[1][2]
