The Thailand Yacht Show takes place at Phuket’s Royal Phuket Marina from January 9 – 12 taking advantage of the island’s peak visitor season. It’s the fifth edition of the show that started at the Ao Po Grand Marina five years ago and then merged with the Phuket Yacht show three years ago.
If you’re in and around the island The Thaiger warmly recommends you take the chance to come and stroll around the marina and enjoy the world-class display of yachts and luxury.
The Thailand Yacht Show is a key marketing platform and revenue generator for the local marine industry, as well as positioning Thailand, especially Phuket, in its rightful place as the primary Asian destination in the global yachting arena.
The yacht show will transform the marina into a bustling hub for all things luxury, highlighting Phuket as Asia’s premier cruising destination and a maritime heaven for leisure boating enthusiasts. The on-water display is a first-class array of luxury yacht models, including several premieres, from the region’s leading brokers and the world’s biggest boat builders.
The exhibitor line-up includes all the best-known brands, charter agencies, high-end property developers and leading names in the automotive, hospitality and food and beverage industries.
Richard Allen, General Manager of Simpson Marine, says “We are very pleased with our confirmed line-up at the 2020 Thailand Yacht Show. We will present six yachts including at least three Asia Premieres which is a great achievement and a showcase of Simpson Marine’s rich portfolio of the world’s leading brands.”
“There will be something for everyone with models from San Lorenzo, Monte Carlo Yachts, Fairline Yachts, Benneteau, Lagoon Catamarans, and Aquila Power Catamarans. In addition, we will be promoting our own services with great offers on Yacht Charter both in Thailand and the rest of the world.”
One of Thailand’s major dealers of ever-more popular sailing and power catamarans, Multihull Solutions, will present Asian and world premieres from NEEL Trimarans and Asia Catamarans respectively.
General Manager Andrew de Bruin says he’s looking forward to the fifth edition of the event.
“We have some terrific boats at TYS this year, and we’re finding the market demand for our speciality catamarans keeps on growing. We’ve always had good results from this show, and it’s really important that everyone continues to support – one day it will grow into something really special for the region.”
First time exhibitor at TYS 2020 is Asia Yachting, the fast-growing and highly successful dealer of Monte Carlo Yachts and Prestige Yachts from Hong Kong, now with an extended territory including Thailand and Singapore.
CEO Olivier Besson is enthusiastic about the opportunities in the region that the Thailand and Singapore Yacht Shows present.
“We are aware of all the efforts that TYS and SYS show organisers Verventia have been putting into developing the industry here, and we are delighted to support that effort – and hopefully make a few sales!”
CEO of event organiser Verventia, Andy Treadwell, is optimistic about the future for Phuket as a hub for high-spending yacht tourism and the yachting industry in Asia.
“Phuket is now recognised as the centre of one of the most beautiful yachting destinations in the world – the ASEAN seas rank alongside the Mediterranean and the Caribbean holiday cruising grounds. This should rightfully be the principal hub for boating and yacht tourism in Asia, known not just for its superb landscapes and seascapes, its tropical islands, clear waters and coral reefs, but also for its world class facilities, marinas, hospitality and service.”
