by | Feb 4, 2019

Elephant parades, luxury food and quality live music, are just a few of the things lucky marine enthusiasts experienced by attending this years Thailand Yacht Show.

This elaborate marine exhibition took place between January 10-13, at the award-winning Royal Phuket Marina. The show was originally created by the same organisers of the Singapore Yacht Show in partnership with the Thai government four years ago. Since then, this event attracts leading international yacht dealers, charter agencies, brokerage houses and marine suppliers who all come together to showcase their businesses to the marine world.

Along with exhibiting the latest yachts from famous manufacturers, the event also displays a wide variety of luxury lifestyle products which appeal to Asia’s increasing demographic of high net-worth individuals and yachting enthusiasts.

During the event, visitors are able to walk onto the boats, along with watching on-water demonstrations. Visitors included the industry’s key global players, along with representatives from the national and local government – who have all been a massive part in supporting the growth of this show, and achieving their mission to open up Thai waters to foreign yacht tourism and in turn grow the industry.

The Thai Government remain unswerving in their determination to support and grow the yachting industry, and bring much-needed cash into local businesses, by changing regulations where necessary to enable foreign superyacht charter tourism. The private sector made it clear they wanted a single show in Phuket
