The Phuket Yacht Show opens for bookings


Following some speculation in previous months, the organisers of Phuket Yacht Show have announced that the first edition is set to go ahead from 12 to 15 February, 2015, and that the show is officially open for on-water bookings from charter yachts and brokers wishing to tap into the growing market in Asia. The show will take place at Yacht Haven Marina, Asia's biggest facility currently under development for yachts up to 150m in length, located in Phang Nga Bay.

The show is targeting charter yachts with an aim to encourage more superyacht activity in Asia and will be the first of its kind in the region. “The Andaman Sea and Phuket are at the centre of the region’s best cruising grounds,” explains Andy Treadwell, managing director of Singapore Yacht Events. “Charter brokers, yacht captains and the local industry have been requesting a high-quality platform to promote charter and sales for large yachts in this beautiful area of the world for some time. Yacht Haven Marina’s unmatched capacity provides an excellent backdrop for an engaging and exciting charter show to do justice to the region’s true charter potential.”

The organisers uphold that there has been significant interest from exhibitors and sponsors of the Singapore Yacht Show, due to the fact that the Phuket event would provide an opportunity to engage with the global affluent travellers for which it is increasingly popular. In 2013, Phuket’s visitor arrivals grew by 26 per cent, even through the recent period of political upheaval, with a significant proportion of the growth coming from wealthy Russian and Chinese visitors.

“We are delighted with the level of interest the Phuket Yacht Show has already generated,” adds Clare Wray, event director. “The new additional pontoons at Yacht Haven, that will eventually provide a massive 60 or 70 superyacht berths, are well under way and will be fully installed by the end of this year. For this first edition we are focusing on having exhibition facilities on floating platforms alongside the yachts – a concept which has proved to be so popular at the Singapore show."
