Lady Christine

Fast becoming one of the key events in the South-East Asian yachting calendar, Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous returns to Phuket next week (December 8-10) for its second year. We round up the most notable yachts attending, starting with Lady Christine.

This 68 metre Feadship superyacht was launched in 2010 with exterior styling by De Voogt Naval Architects and interiors by Rodney Black. She can accommodate up to ten guests in five spacious cabins with a 16-strong crew on hand to cater for every whim.

Her toy store includes sailing boats and an inflatable slide, and guests can relax after an active day in the sundeck spa pool.

Fresh from her adventures exploring the Arctic, 45 metre Latitude will be joining the rendezvous this year. This 2008 launch from Russian yard Timmerman Yachts is a true globetrotter, having won the Voyager’s Award at the 2016 World Superyacht Awards after a voyage of 11,000 nautical miles. No doubt her crew will have some incredible stories to tell from their travels.

A privately-owned MCY86 will be bringing a touch of Nuvolari Lenard design flair to the rendezvous. Introduced in 2013, this 26.3 metre model has proven to be one of Monte Carlo Yachts’ most popular with nine launched so far by the Italian yard. Speeds of up to 29 knots are possible from the twin screw powertrain, which is available in MAN or MTU versions.

Ferretti 850

First launched in July 2016, the Ferretti 850 is one of the Italian yard’s newest models and Asian dealer Lee Marine will be bringing this new 26 metre to the Kata Rocks Rendezvous.

Other notable yachts attending include a 32 metre Princess, a 31 metre Astondoa and the traditional ketch-rigged sailing yacht Dallinghoo.

Michael Nurbatlian, director of marketing at organisers Infinite Luxury, added: “We are thrilled to see how much bigger this year’s event will be. The support we’ve received from all of our partners is phenomenal, which really demonstrates the appetite and development opportunities for superyachting in this part of Asia.”
