14th Annual Superyacht Rendezvous to hit Kata [video]

PHUKET: The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, which takes place in Phuket every December 16-18 is one of the most famous gatherings of motor and sailing superyachts in the world.

This is the one hotspot event of the superyacht world where owners, captains and VIP guests can congregate around beautiful luxury superyachts, both sail and motor powered, for three days of fun racing and relaxed socializing in a paradise setting.

Perched overlooking Kata Bay, host hotel sponsors Kata Rocks welcomes Rendezvous Superyacht owners and captains, and their guests and crew, to a unique resort of infinite luxury in a private paradise setting.

Now in its 14th year, Asia Superyacht Rendezvous springs into gear on opening night with a luxurious cocktail party hosted aboard a private superyacht. Several days of friendly but highly competitive sailing races will follow with the sleekly beautiful vessels racing on a course set forth by Captain Andy Dowden, marked by mammoth power vessels, with VIP guests avidly following the racing boats.

It’s party time with unique events every night at Kata Rocks for Rendezvous guests as they gaze out over an amazing array of “floating castles”. While kicking back in friendly camaraderie and enjoying the finest cocktails, wine, food and service, yachting enthusiasts have the opportunity to catch up and sea stories can be exchanged.

Happily returning for their 14th year as the principal sponsor, Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyards – famed for building some of the world’s most desired superyachts – once again will judge the excitingly cutthroat Feadship Model Boat Construction & Competition, featuring a dozen enthusiastic yachting crew teams led by their spirited captains.

On the last day all of the superyachts will come together to present an unforgettable spectacle on Kata Bay, a magnificent, one-of-a-kind “Superyacht Dress Parade”. This memorable event will be followed by the famed “Pirate Treasure hunt” – a big hit with yachting families and crews. A lavishly sumptuous VIP “Gala Dinner” will provide a stylish end to this year’s rendezvous.

Normally, luxury yachts will anchor right alongside Kata Rocks without leaving their spots except for the races, with all coming ashore as participants are collected by event dinghies and ferried to a private dock throughout the event. The sheer magic of the location and the stunning vista of moored superyachts will provide a most memorable experience for all attending.

To experience this exclusive event and enjoy the yachting fellowship and ultimate in luxury accommodation an invitation to the celebrated event is extended to Superyachts of 100′ or over.
