TYS is thrilled to be working once again in partnership with the Thai government, promoting Phuket as the principal hub for superyachts in Asia with its superb cruising grounds and prime location. Momentum and interest in Thailand’s charter potential have continued to build since the 2015 landmark announcement of a new license for foreign-flagged superyachts to charter in Thai waters.
On the back of the 2015 Thailand Yacht Show, an increasing number of premier yachting and luxury brands have realised the importance of participating in this leading event. Boat Lagoon Yachting has confirmed a line-up of eight yachts including Princess Yachts, Jeanneau and Prestige Yachts. Simpson Marine, one of Asia’s leading new and brokerage yacht sales companies will return once again, presenting the stunning Italian-built superyacht, Sanlorenzo 46Steel, Forwin. Local dealer, Lee Marine will display a range of large yachts from some of the world’s most prestigious brands such as, Ferretti Custom Line, CRN and CDM among others.
The luxury Dutch brand, Feadship, known for their exclusive custom designs, is also coming on board as a partner this year. For the first time in its 167 years of operation, Feadship has launched three almost identical 34m yachts tailored to the Asia market, with another two on the way. The length and draft of Feadships’s new model is designed to accommodate Asian waters.
The iconic, Norman Foster-designed Ocean Emerald, which can accommodate up to 12 guests, will be returning to Thailand’s shores this December. The ultimate yacht for an intimate charter, this contemporary masterpiece provides an expert crew of nine and Michelin star on-board dining.
