Princess Yachts prepare for Phuket’s international boat show



PHUKET: Boat Lagoon Yachting, the sole distributor of Princess Yachts SEA, is giving away a free yacht charter at the annual PIMEX boat show.

Having served the boating community since 1995, the company is probably best known as the exclusive authorized dealer for prestigious Princess Yachts.

Joining in the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Phuket International Marine Exhibition (PIMEX), Princess South East Asia will raffle off an exclusive yacht charter for eight people on the exciting Princess 60 Motor Yacht.

Joining the raffle is as simple as it gets. Fill in one of the forms distributed throughout the show or visit the Boat Lagoon’s “yachting on water” display to get one. Then hand the form to one of the Boat Lagoon Yachting Staff (who can be recognized by the Princess marque on their shirts), or drop it in the collection box provided and you could find yourself on a state of the art luxurious motor yacht in no time.

The draw will be held by the owner of the yacht a few days after the show and the winner will be contacted directly as well as through the Phuket Gazette.

Jeremy Tutt, General Manager of Boat Lagoon Yachting, is looking forward to this year’s PIMEX with excitement and anticipation. With a mere three weeks to go, the preparations are in full swing.

“PIMEX has always been one of our favorite shows because of the opportunity to connect to the local yachting community, and this year we have prepared an especially exciting display,” Jeremy said.

Princess South East Asia will display at least five yachts out of the 13 in the Flybridge range. These include, the Princess 78, two Princess 72s, the Princess 64 and the Princess 60. The often talked about grey hulls offer a variety of different interiors, including light oak, serotina cherry and walnut.

Another first from Princess during the show will be the Asia launch of the new Princess 56.

If you are in the market for a yacht in this range, you shouldn’t miss this yacht. According to Jeremy: “The new 56 combines a spacious and exquisitely finished interior with exhilarating performance, and is destined to become the new benchmark for her class. As with all Princess craft, the interior is crisp and contemporary and finished to the highest quality to create an interior ambiance of a much larger vessel.”

The largest yacht available for viewing to select clients at the show will be Moon Sand, a 41 meter (135ft) Sovereign Superyacht built in New Zealand.

Completed in 2003, her recent interior design reflects the endowment of the design work of Deus Design and gives this yacht her very own character.

Another big fish is the Astondoa 102 GLX. Known for their high level of customization, the 90-year-old Astilleros Astondoa shipyard is building truly exceptional yachts. This particular model is in excellent condition and awaiting visitors to marvel at her.

No lineup of yachts would be complete without the opportunity for charter guests to choose their next holiday home on the water. Between the Astondoa 102 and a wide variety of Princess Yachts there is a charter for everyone.

To cater to the ever increasing number of return guests, Boat Lagoon Yachting recently appointed Mr Rico Stapel as the dedicated contact person to cater for the wishes and needs of every charter guest. Rico has come from Northrop and Johnson, where he acted as Charter Manager for Asia.

The Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX) is proudly sponsored by the Phuket Gazette, PGTV and the nationally televised ‘Phuket Today’ show on True Visions.

‘Phuket Today’, co-produced by PGTV and MCOT World, will be covering this event. The weekly half-hour show runs eight times a week, every week, on channels 99 and 58.
