Phuket Yacht Show, the largest charter event in South East Asia, is launching in Phuket early next year.
The inaugural event will take place from 12 to 15 February 2015 at the Phuket Yacht Haven Marina – the largest marina in the region. The exclusively on-water Show will combine the best aspects of yacht charter, boating and luxury events, giving visitors the opportunity to discover and experience the yachting lifestyle.
Organisers have announced that the 69-metre Australian-built superyacht, M/Y Saluzi, will be on display at the show. The superyacht has recently completed an extensive refit led by interior designer Luiz De Basto and is now ready for charter to discerning guests. Contemporary artist Li Jiwei lent her artistic vision with her special designs.
Andy Treadwell, Phuket Yacht Show owner and Managing Director of Singapore Yacht Events says: “We are very excited about our launch at Phuket Yacht Haven Marina. South East Asia has grown to become an opportunistic region for the global yachting and chartering industry, and we are excited to present the variety of luxury holidays options that Phuket has to offer.”
The Phuket Yacht Show (PYS) will be a major highlight of the boating, yacht charter and lifestyle experience in the region, offering the largest display of luxury yachts in the city where demand for private yacht charter has been steadily inclining.
Launched on the back of the hugely successful Singapore Yacht Show, the Phuket Yacht Show is organised as a result of increased demand from the industry and points to the emerging importance of Asia as a luxury yachting region and destination, set to catch up to Europe.
The Phuket Yacht Haven Marina can accommodate between 50 and 70 superyachts, providing capacity that is unmatched anywhere else in Asia.
Organisers have confirmed the capacity for a dozen more superyachts that can be featured and significant interest has already been expressed for yachts ranging from 20m to 70m, as well as from other partners based on the success of the Singapore Yacht Show earlier this year.
Trisara Resort, an exclusive luxury accommodation, is partnering with the show to offer special rates for visitors as well as host a VIP cocktail party on the evening of 12th February 2015.
