Slow boat to Macau?

I have a dim and distant (childhood)recollection of an 'over-night' boat to Macau from Hong Kong.

I wonder whether anyone can recall this? I seem to think you boarded the boat in the evening, on a quite large passenger boat/ferry and arrived in the early morning in Macau.

Given the distance to Macau, it does seem rather unlikely? It must have travelled extremely slowly!
 

Any thoughts?

KinShan Steamer

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1865

In 1865 the Hong Kong, Canton and Macao Steamboat Company was started, to provide steamship connection between Macao, Hong Kong, and Canton. The American shallow-draft river steamers Kinshan (the first boat of this name), White Cloud and Fire Dart were the company's earliest acquisitions. The White Cloud was a paddle-wheeled vessel, which was sold out of the company during the Spanish-American War.
