PIMEX back on show at Boat Lagoon

KOH KAEW: The 2006 Phuket International Marine Expo (PIMEX) is underway at Phuket Boat Lagoon marina.

PIMEX, which this year has already attracted 4,000 visitors, boasts more than 50 boats, including 20 berthed in the water, from more than 100 international boating brands. The boats range in price from US$10,000, for a rigid inflatable, to US$50,000 for a small run-about, to US$1 million for a prestigious luxury motor yacht.

Advance registrations for international visitors to this year’s show was at a record high. “Advance registrations traditionally make up only a small part of the total visitor numbers, but they are a strong indication of the visitor trend,” said Grenville Fordham, Managing Director of Image Asia Events, the show’s organizer.

Now in its fourth year, PIMEX is Thailand’s first international boat show and one of the major marine expos in Southeast Asia.

Entry is free. The show closes at 6 pm tomorrow.
