Witness spectacles at the Thailand Yacht Show



PHUKET: The very first state-sponsored Thailand Yacht Show promises a whole lot of fun on the water, showcasing the latest luxury yachts available for charter and aquatic toys, plus the latest offerings from the region’s top boating industry specialists and suppliers at Ao Po Grand Marina today through February 14.

Additionally, there will be exhibitions and displays on the water, as well as parties and tours on board some of the world’s top yachts. Here are some of the highlights not to be missed.


One of the largest motor yachts available in the Burgess fleet, the 73m M/Y Titania is ideal for fun family charter with two master suites, a massage room and beauty salon staffed with professional massage therapists and beauticians, a large Jacuzzi with swim-up bar and beach club style seating.


With five voluminous decks the Saluzi is the largest charter yacht based in Southeast Asia with a full range of on-board entertainment including an open-air cinema and pro dive center. Her shallow draft allows her into smaller coves where other yachts would struggle, making her ideal for exploring small islands.


The futuristic 41-m superyacht designed by Norman Foster is a modern masterpiece of five spaciously designed suites for up to 12 guests, making it the perfect yacht for family adventure, parties and even corporate events.


From Boat Lagoon Yachting, the Wider 42 can expand at the flick of a switch, widening to comfortably hold 12. This slick Italian designed cruiser can reach up to 50 knots and has an average range of 350 miles at 40 knots.


Showcased by Simpson Marine, the MCY 70 designed by award-winning Nuvolari Lenard combines innovation and high-quality engineering with the classic elegance of teak, oak and grey sycamore trim and furnishings. Powerful twin MAN V8 1200 diesel engines give her a top speed of 32 knots.


With a top speed of 40 knots, the Pershing 92 from Lee Marine is the fastest fiberglass yacht of her size, perfectly combining speed and luxury with accommodation for eight guests and a crew of three plus a tender garage and various water toys.


From Boat Lagoon, the Princess Yachts 72 is a spacious party cruiser with an expansive fly-bridge, a large wet-bar, barbecue and generous seating. The cockpit doubles as an exterior entertainment deck and the foredeck has even more seating.


Watch the show from the comfort of this floating VIP lounge catamaran with finger food and drinks served to guests while live DJ vibes complete the trendy lounge ambiance.


Adventure on the water includes daily jet-surf, jet-ski and paddle-boarding demonstrations at the Demo Platform, where every night glamorous and vibrant social events are planned.

The Phuket Gazette and PGTV, along with our partner newspaper The Nation, are proud to be the national media partners for this show, Thailand’s largest and most lavish annual marine leisure event.
