The fifth edition of the Thailand Yacht Show (TYS) is taking place at Royal Phuket Marina from now until January 12, 2020.
Targeting yachting aficionados and wealthy lifestyle enthusiasts from all over the region, TYS aims to position Thailand “as the primary Asian destination in the global yachting arena” and attract foreign yacht tourism.
The show will feature an on-water display, which is a first-class array of luxury yacht models, including several premieres, from the region’s leading brokers and world’s biggest boat builders.
The exhibitor line-up includes renowned brands, charter agencies, high-end property developers and leading names in the automotive, hospitality and F&B industries. A mix of high-net-worth buyers and sellers, as well as aspiring yacht owners, will also be in attendance.
As well, Italian boatbuilder Azimut Yachts will display two brand-new models, while British brand Sunseeker will have a front-line showpiece yacht to demonstrate the ultimate in high-fashion luxury boating.
Visitors to TYS 2020 will find a whole host of new features, including interactive demonstrations, special Children’s Day events, art exhibitions and an artistic masterclass, live music, fashion shows and an array of F&B options, including a brand new Floating Bar in the heart of the marina.
The Show’s main draw remains the world-class selection of yachts and boats – from small sailboats to superyachts, RIB’s to jet-skis, navigation systems and chandlery to the latest water-sports toys – for visitors to admire, and to charter or purchase. TYS will also offer the opportunity for first-timers to try sailing a yacht from its Demonstration Platform.
The private island of Koh Rang Noi, situated a short ride from the main exhibition, will serve as the venue for TYS 2020’s Welcome Party on January 9, as well as the backdrop to the show’s Superyacht Hub, which will showcase a selection of international superyachts at anchor.
