About the Show
Created by the organisers of the Singapore Yacht Show, the Thailand Yacht Show (TYS), in partnership with Thai government, combine the best aspects of yacht charter, boating industry and luxury lifestyle events. The Show attracts industry and consumers alike, and has become the focal point of the luxury charter yacht business in Asia Pacific.
With the launch of the first edition in February 2016, the Thailand Yacht Show has the objective of driving the Prime Minister's project to make Thailand the principal destination for yachting in Asia, and the winter destination of choice for superyacht owners and charterers from around the world.
The Thailand Yacht Show is a superyacht charter show with facilities for much larger vessels than have been on display at other industry events in the region; Superyachts in excess of 100m are even able to come into the Marina. It is also a key platform to showcase all range of boats and yachts including smaller boats from local and regional dealers, either for sale or charter.
The second edition of the new Thailand Yacht Show took place in December 2016 and provided visitors with an arrange of experiential opportunities, including sea trials and glamorous parties on superyachts, fashion shows, supercars and the very latest in on-water toys.
With 60 exhibitors, and 55 vessels on display - including 18 superyachts - the second edition of TYS, once again in partnership with the Thailand government was most certainly ‘bigger and better’.
Phuket and South East Asia are the perfect locations to engage for the first time in this lifestyle. Phuket is a mecca for a whole host of people who have the financial means to charter a yacht but have had little exposure to the lifestyle so far. As charter is a recognized means to yacht ownership, We believe that the TYS formula is the right way, and in the right place, to bring together the boating industry and new boating consumers.
