Thailand Yacht Show attracts elite

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: The inaugural edition of the Thailand Yacht Show, to be held February 8-14 at the Ao Po Grand Marina, continues to attract the elite of the superyacht industry.

Burgess Yachts, one of the world’s largest and most internationally renowned brokerage and charter companies, is using the event to showcase an exciting and diverse range of yachts.

The distinctive 73 meter M/Y Titania is not only one of the most voluminous yachts available in the region, but also one of the most luxurious, designed for both indoor and outdoor living. Perfect for family entertainment, guests of all ages will enjoy the yacht’s incredible water park, which includes an inflatable slide, trampoline and climbing frame.

The 50m M/Y Northern Sun is a high-class, long-range expedition yacht with extensive cruising experience in Southeast Asia. Her interior design has been heavily influenced by Asia, resulting in elegant and sleek living areas.

To take advantage of the warm seas in which she cruises, Northern Sun is packed with toys and is sure to keep guests entertained.

At 69m, the iconic M/Y Saluzi is the largest charter yacht based permanently in Asia. With accommodation for 32 guests, she features two master suites, a spa, gym, vast open-air cinema and a karaoke bar.

Completing Burgess Yachts’ line-up will be the 32m M/Y Nanou, from Italian builder Benetti Yachts. A fantastic acquisition for those wishing to combine traditional design and craftsmanship, Nanou is impeccably maintained with a spacious interior.

The impressive line-up complements the recent opening of Burgess’s Asia-based division, which has already made a significant impact in the market.

“I believe that this show will be a key driver for sustainable economic growth in all aspects, ranging from promoting the tourism sector, to creating inspiration and a vibrant atmosphere for the marine tourism industry and other services,” said Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith.

The Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports (MOTS), the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Marine Department have all demonstrated their support for the show.

“I am confident that the Thailand Yacht Show 2016 will meet government policy excellently, particularly in terms of marketing and public relations… The promotion of the show will definitely provide tremendous benefits to the Thai economy and society as a whole,” said MOTS Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul.

Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha will officially open the event on February 11.

This event is proudly sponsored by the Phuket Gazette and PGTV’s nationwide ‘Phuket Today’ show, which broadcasts daily on True Visions channels 85 and 59.
