The second edition of the Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous (KRSR) drew to a close yesterday after a successful three-day programme of superyacht displays and bespoke social events in Phuket, Thailand.

Running from 8th to 10th December, the invite-only Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous got South East Asia’s yachting season off to a fine start, showcasing some of the finest superyachts set to be cruising in the region over the upcoming months.

Turning heads all weekend was the 70m/224ft motor yacht ‘Lady Christine’ from Feadship, as well as the 51m/167ft expedition yacht ‘Northern Sun’ from Narasaki Shipyard. These were joined by a variety of other motor and sailing yachts.

There was also a strong turnout of luxury phinisi, vessels constructed using traditional Indonesian boat building methods but equipped with modern day amenities. Standing out with her graceful lines and sails was the 53m/175ft luxury phinisi ZEN.  

The event opened with the King’s Cup Superyacht Experience, where guests were invited to watch the thrilling racing of the King’s Cup regatta aboard one of the yachts in attendance. This was followed by champagne tasting, a cocktail party and the KRSR opening reception.

Day two began with an exclusive cruise, where guests were treated to a private beach barbecue. A Feadship cocktail party aboard Lady Christine and dinner then followed, alongside a dinner hosted by Benetti and VistaJet in a Kata Rocks’ penthouse.

On the final day, there was a Royal Huisman private brunch as well as water toy demonstrations and trials and a vodka and caviar tasting session. A ‘Kata Rocks Charter Season Opening Party’ then served as the event’s grand finale in the evening.

Only in its second year, the rendezvous is fast-becoming an important fixture in the international yachting calendar and is helping Phuket transform into Asia’s top yachting destination.

The rendezvous is designed to bring together like-minded people from a personally curated guest list that features Kata Rocks villa owners, superyacht owners and discerning travellers interested in yachting and luxury lifestyle.
