New SE Asia Charter Show for Phuket Yacht Haven
The organisers of the Singapore Yacht Show have confirmed the launch of a new charter yacht show, to be hosted annually at Phuket Yacht Haven in Thailand.
The inaugural show, to be held in mid-December 2014, will combine the best aspects of yacht charter, boating industry and luxury lifestyle events. Destined to attract industry and UHNW consumers alike, the event will be staged in the biggest superyacht marina in the Asia Pacific region, currently being completely redeveloped by its owners.
The beautiful Phuket Yacht Haven, in the north east corner of Phuket and just 15 minutes from the international airport, is widely regarded as the first port of choice for superyachts visiting Asia. The marina's owners have recently commenced a complete redevelopment of their huge site, with a brand new private access road directly off the main highway and a new car park already completed.
Most importantly, on the lower level next to the marina, there will be a world-class Yacht Club accommodating 400 – 500 guests, with special facilities for captains and crew. In response to demand, the development will also include the addition of another 40 superyacht berths, 30 of which will be ready by December 2014 for the launch edition of the new Yacht Show.
