A new yacht show for Phuket that is lead by show director Andy Dowden and financially backed by boat show operators from Turkey, organisers are promising to deliver the best yacht show seen in Phuket.
“I've owned and operated boat shows in Phuket for 16 years and in my experience, combined with feedback from key stakeholders in Thailand's marine industry, Royal Phuket Marina is the ideal host venue due to its central location and boardwalk facilities. “And early January is the ideal time as that is when the highest number of globetrotting millionaires and billionaires are on the island,” said Dowden.
The Phuket Yacht Show will enable nautical lifestyle seekers an opportunity to view some of the world's top brands in Thailand's premier waterfront environment and will showcase not only yachts, super yachts and marine related toys and services, but also high-end properties, fashion and accessories, super cars, fine dining and luxury products.
Up to 120 exhibitors will be resident in the 2,500 sqm marina-side exhibition hall while there is space for more than 50 yachts up to 35 metres in length in the water.
Accommodating the growing interest in super yacht sales and charter, a private island super-yacht display is five minutes from Royal Phuket Marina and accessed by private shuttle for qualified guests.
