FOLLOWING A RECORD-BREAKING 13th Phuket International Boat Show in 2016, Royal Phuket Marina will once again host the event in 2017 and Thailand Elite will be back on board as Presenting Sponsor.
Over 100 exhibiting participants are expected, including over 40 yachts in the marina and a new Superyacht Zone on a nearby private island featuring 10 yachts over 35 metres. As well as yachts of all types and sizes, marine suppliers with engines, electronics, chandlery, sportswear and accessories, dive equipment and watersport toys will add to the range of exhibits. Property projects and luxury goods together with exciting motor car brands are invited to give a great experience to all exhibitors and visitors alike.

Simpson Marine confirmed its participation with up to six yachts from its range of brands, including Monte Carlo Yachts, Lagoon and Beneteau. Multihull Solutions will also be back again for the fourth year since opening its Thailand and Southeast Asia branch.
The 14th edition will see the addition of complementary events and activities, as well as an expanded domestic and international marketing campaign. Fashion shows, live bands and cooking classes will enhance the visitor experience and more emphasis will be on Charter Cruising – a comprehensive Conference Programme – a Mariners’ Market and additional al fresco food and beverage outlets.
