By Rebecca Bradbury   3 January 2017

International exhibitors, leading brokers and an impressive line-up of luxury yachts are getting ready to descend on the Royal Phuket Marina in Thailand for the 2017 Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX).

The longest-running marine and lifestyle show in South East Asia, the Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX) will run from 5th to 8th January, ensuring the 2017 yachting calendar gets off to a fantastic start.

One of the highlights of this year’s edition will be a new Superyacht Event held on Koh Rang Noi, a nearby private island accessible from the award-winning Royal Phuket Marina via a 10-minute luxury tender ride.

A number of superyachts available for both charter and sale will be anchored at the exclusive island location, and interested clients will be able to step aboard for viewings and tours.  

Another new element for 2017 will be a unique focus on boat charters, with the top broker companies providing advice and information about charters in Thailand and the nearby waters of Myanmar and the Andaman Islands.
