Boat International Media to be exclusive media partner of Asia Superyacht Rendezvous
Boat International Media are delighted to announce our support of the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, acting as the exclusive Media Partner of this very special tenth anniversary edition of the event to be held on 16 – 18 December 2010.
The idyllic tropical island of Phuket in Thailand, dubbed the “Superyacht Hub of Southeast Asia” will once again host both motor and sail superyachts from around the globe at the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, the longest-running superyacht event in Asia and the largest gathering of superyachts in the region.
Returning as Principal Sponsor of the event, Bas Nederpelt, Director Sales and Marketing at Feadship De-Vries commented, "Feadship has a long-established presence in Asia and has committed to being the principal sponsor of the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous for the tenth year. We are convinced that there is a great potential for yachting in the area, and for Phuket in particular, as a yacht hub. Today, too few yacht owners explore the beautiful Asian waters and the event supports bringing more superyachts to this region."
Joining Feadship are Co-Sponsors Rolling Stock, Merle Wood & Associates and Asia Pacific Superyachts along with Host Hotel Sponsor, The Chedi Phuket.
Co-organisers Gordon Fernandes and Captain Charles Dwyer comment, "We are delighted to once again organize this landmark 10-year anniversary superyacht event in Phuket. Our objective is to bring together invited owners and captains from around the world to the only event in Asia which hosts both motor and sail superyachts; the only stipulation being all yachts participating must be over 100 feet LOA."
Captain Charlie of the participating yacht Yannekee Too, continued, "We look forward to more superyacht owners and captains discovering the amazing tropical cruising waters of the Andaman seas and the warm hospitality of the Thai people and culture."
This year the event programme has increased from two to three days of activities including sail racing accompanied by motor yachts, sunset cocktail parties aboard moored superyachts and at The Chedi Phuket, “The Challenge” team boat-building contest, a Crew Beach Party BBQ and the grand closing VIP Gala Dinner hosted by Boat International Media.
The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous is an opportunity for both motor and sailing yacht owners, captains and crew to enjoy fantastic social functions and fun on the water in the beautiful setting of Phuket and Southeast Asia; a growing superyacht community recognized as the world's next superyacht playground.
