This year organizers are hosting a crew party at REKATA Beach Club on Kata Beach.

Sponsored by Sevenstar Yacht Transport, the event offers the perfect opportunity for the crews to mingle and let their hair down.

With over 25 years experience in worldwide yacht transportation services on a lift-on-lift-off basis, Sevenstar Yacht Transport utilizes its own global network of offices and exclusive agencies. The company is part of the Spliethoff Group based in Amsterdam which operates its own fleet of over 100 independent carriers and ships, transporting an average of 1,500 yachts every year through more than 100 ports in over 40 countries, the firm can handle yachts up to 60 meters and 650 metric tons.

The entertainment is an integral part of the overall event with sailing events during the day and parties in the evening. With nine confirmed entries and more sure to join, the waters around Kata Rocks look to be swarming with a whole host of exquisite superyachts.

Argo will be returning this year. At 34 meters, this beautifully crafted vessel will be a marvel to observe, gliding through the waters.

Also participating again at this year’s event is the 33-meter Maid Marian, a truly exceptional motor yacht, that was built in 1931, and wonderfully preserved throughout the years – she is a true masterpiece.

Moving on to the luxury sailing yacht; Sunshine is a 38-meter work of art whose fine craftsmanship is mirrored on both the interior and exterior of this stunning superyacht. Capricorn will also be joining; a 30-meter example of timeless styling, demonstrating incredible expertise that went into creating this wonderful vessel.

The event is also very lucky to have on board the wonderful motor yacht, Moonsand. This 41-meter luxury yacht was made by Sovereign Yachts in 2003. She was chosen to be the flagship of the Royal New Zealand Squadron during the last Americas Cup.

Participants are looking forward to seeing her and all the other superyachts at the event this year. Moonsand is for sale, so anyone looking to invest in a beautiful motor yacht should look no further.
