Dear Howard,

thanks again for the most interesting visit to your country, your yards and Hainan. You and your staff gave me and also Rona very warm wellcome feeling. I was impressed by your yards, in particular by the Zhu Hai yard. That is a seriuos big boat yard with a great potential. Unfortunately I was not aware that your staff already had startet to laminate my hull. So there is an opportunity to come back soon. But first we will see each other in Duesseldorf for the boatshow in week 4. I also hope that Ron will be succesfull in searching for an european mould of a power yacht. However you impressed me with your new ARTEMIS. I could hardly believe how fast you build that boat and I am sure that with some minor modifications she will attract also byers in Europe, at least with her price.

I would like to extend my best christmas wishes to you and cherry and you staff which impressed me very much.

With very best regards
Hans-Erik Henze
