The fifth edition of the Thailand Yacht Show was a huge success. Held at Royal Phuket Marina from 9-12 January 2020 during the island’s peak visitor season, the event brought together a large number of yachties, exhibitors and VIP guests.
Highlight of this year’s yacht show was the debut of the all-new Princess Y85 Motor Yacht. Launched in Thailand by Boat Lagoon Yachting, Asia’s premier provider of a luxury yachting experience, the company was once again the largest exhibitor at the show, bringing in an array of luxurious yachts, suited for all lifestyles.
Mr Vrit Yongsakul, Managing Director of Boat Lagoon Yachting, mentioned, “We are delighted to be a part of Thailand Yacht Show 2020. Phuket is becoming Asia’s hub for marine leisure and yachting. Over the years, it has attracted more marine-related businesses, ultra-high-net-worth individuals, yachting enthusiasts and lifestyle-seekers from all over the region to the area. We are proud to launch the Princess Y85 at this show.
