PHUKET: It’s full steam ahead for the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous as an eclectic fleet of yachts line up to drop anchor in Kata Bay on December 16-18.

This is Asia’s largest invitation only gathering of superyachts where the fun of luxury yacht ownership is celebrated.

This year’s lineup consists of S/Y Lamima, a stunning 65-meter gaff rigged Indonesian Phinisi; S/Y Aventure, one of the largest wooden yachts in the world at 29 meters; S/Y Lady Thuraya, a high performance Dubois; S/Y Bliss in at 37 meters; S/Y Arabella, a 20-meter new build Fountaine Pajot; 32-meter sleek cruiser M/Y Antares by Maoira Yachts; high performance M/Y After 8, a beautiful German built custom at 33 meters; and the contemporary sharp lines of M/Y Darling a 21 meter new build Monte Carlo courtesy of the Royal Phuket Marina and Gulu Lalvani.

The exclusive event brings together some of Asia’s most active, influential business leaders and society luminaries to celebrate its 15th year in Phuket, and has not strayed from the roots planted by founders Gordon Fernandes and Charlie Dwyer.

Event organizers view the Rendezvous as a unique ambassadorial event that, not only displays yachts in all their glory, but is a great opportunity to promote the region and help develop Phuket into a yachting hub and viable long-term home for yachts.

“A luxury yacht hub is one of the many industry spokes connected to the wheels of regional economic development that can propel a country to further success and offer opportunities to its citizens,” said Event and Business Development Manager Andrew Davies.

“At the Rendezvous, we are firmly committed to our host nation, and in 2016 onwards, we will be supporting local charities,” he added.
