Thailand Yacht Show (Jan 2019)
On its fourth year, the Thailand Yacht Show is back at the Royal Phuket Marina with some exciting line ups and rendevouzs. Naming itself the 'pearl of the Andaman Sea', Thailand has put itself on the luxury yacht industry's map, excitingly taking part in revealing new builds and making strong connections with shipyards based in Europe. Ranging from starring mid-ranged superyachts to Stand-up Paddle boards and other megayacht toys, the show integrate an immersive experience, balancing fun and glamor. Activities on the water and ashore will include wine tasting, dinner parties, and sea trials from jet-skis, sailboat manufacturers and megayacht builders. The exhibitor line-up includes all the best-known yacht brands and brokers, charter agencies, high-end property developers, bespoke travel organizers and leading names in the automotive, hospitality and food and beverage industries.
To mark this special occasion and start the new year in style, Simpson Marine will be having nine impressive line-ups, including six Thailand premieres at the show:
- Sanlorenzo SL 78 – Thailand Premiere
- Monte Carlo Yachts 70
- Monte Carlo Yachts 65
- Beneteau Gran Turismo 50 – Thailand Premiere
- Beneteau Gran Turismo 46
- Lagoon 50 – Thailand Premiere

- Aquila 44 – Thailand Premiere
- Flyer 8.8 – Thailand Premiere
Richard Allen, General Manager of Simpson Marine, says “We are very pleased with our confirmed line up at the 2019 Thailand Yacht Show & Rendezvous. To have nine yachts with six Thailand premieres is a great achievement and a showcase of Simpson Marine’s rich portfolio of the world’s best brands. There will be something for everyone starting with Sanlorenzo, Monte Carlo Yachts, Beneteau power, Lagoon Catamarans and Aquila Power Catamarans. As every year, the show is a great chance to meet our owners and buyers, and with this year our largest display to date and the biggest display at the show, we are sure it’s going to be a great event. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
It will be a fun-filled yet insightful event, calling for the Western world to peel their eyes open to the challenge of South-East Asia and the Middle East opening their doors for new winter destinations. The superyacht and luxury yacht market has plenty new oceans and bays to indulge in, in the upcoming years, calling for the maritime industry to excitingly and rapidly expand.
