Set against the idyllic backdrop of Phang Nga Bay, the second Thailand Yacht Show will once again turn its attention to superyachts and charter clients as well as the marine industry in general.
The event aims to provide a platform to support and develop business in Thailand and the wider South East Asia region. As such, it is seen as a key tool for continuing the campaign to enable foreign superyachts to charter in the country’s waters, as backed and promoted by the Thai government.
The inaugural event took place just three months ago, but the dates for the second edition have been brought forward to December in order to coincide with the start of the winter charter season and attract Mediterranean-based yachts considering a visit to Asia.
Once again the Thailand Yacht Show will feature an on-water display of yachts, including an impressive line-up of superyachts, and an on-land pavilion housing luxury and boating brands from across the world.
Show Director Wade Pearce promises an even bigger and better event. He said, “We will have even more sea-trials and equipment demonstrations in the marina, and we are planning two or three ancillary events alongside the show, which will turn TYS into a mayor festival of yachting and boating that is not to be missed.”
The Ao Po Grand Marina can host around 260 yachts and is even able to accommodate superyachts in excess of 100 metres.

Last February’s show saw the likes of Lurssen’s 73m superyacht TITANIA, the Narasaki Shipyard-built 51m superyacht ‘Northern Sun’ and the 41m superyacht ‘Ocean Emerald’ grace the Andaman waters, and the event organisers will soon start revealing yachts signed up for the upcoming edition.
