by Risa Merl
Kata Rocks Resort has been confirmed as the host sponsor for the 2013 Asia Superyacht Rendezvous.
The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous will return to Phuket, Thailand, 16-18 December, 2013, for three days and nights of spectacular superyacht socialising. Last year's event attracted 10 of the finest motor and sailing superyachts in the world, including Royal Huisman's 57.5m Twizzle, as the largest sailing yacht in the fleet, and three yachts built by principal sponsor Feadship, including 44.6m motor yacht Helix.
Set on the west coast of Phuket on a headland between two beautiful beaches, the stunning and private property comprises a collection of 34 luxurious oceanfront Sky Villas. Kata Rocks is home to a luxurious spa and gym and offers oceanfront dining, private chefs for in-home dining and infinity pools in the villas. Developer Richard Pope has won 16 international property awards for Kata Rocks. Pope says, 'Kata Rocks is excited to be hosting this prestigious event this year. It has been wonderful to see the Regatta attracting superyachts in increasing size and numbers annually. Our Sky Villa design of sleek, tinted windows with wrap-around louvre panels was inspired by superyachts, so it is fantastic that they will be moored directly at our shoreline.'
The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous is renowned for its fabulous parties, cuisine and fun-filled social programme. Events include a welcome cocktail yacht hop, the ever-popular Feadship Challenge boatbuilding contest and the Rendezvous Booty tender treasure hunt around Phuket. The event closes with the Boat International Media Gala Dinner. Preparations are well underway for the 2013 edition of the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, with organisers anticipating a diverse fleet of yachts from new builds to classic yachts in attendance.
