Organizers and Sponsors are in their final days of preparation and the anticipation of the 12th Asia Superyacht Rendezvous is all-consuming. Most of the yachts have arrived, captains, crew and VIP guests are getting revved up for some sun, sailing and socializing.
The buzz in Phuket is growing daily with Christmas around the corner and Phuket’s beaches are bustling with families, honeymooners holiday makers and friendly locals. Asia Superyacht Rendezvous hosts Angsana Laguna and Xana Beach Club have everything from mouth-watering cuisine and delightful wines to a welcoming atmosphere and breathtaking setting and they are all set for takeoff on December 16th.
This year’s Rendezvous will have 8 jaw-dropping Superyachts anchored in Bang Thao Bay. The Rendezvous will have three Feadship’s, Callisto, Samax and Helix. 44 meter Helix is the 5th F45 Vantage series Feadship and was launched in 2011 and she is currently doing a tour of Asia. Royal Huisman’s elegant 57 meter S/Y Twizzle is the first vessel completely styled by the shipyard themselves by their talented team of Redman, Whiteley Dixon, with the interior scheme from Todhunter Earle Associates and the naval architecture by Dubois Naval Architects. Also joining will be the exotic Phinisi, S/Y Silolona, luxurious S/Y Yanneke Too and M/Y Maverick, as well as the very powerful S/Y Shamoun.
Phuket is continuously playing host to more and more yachts each year and this season it is proving to be an extremely popular destination for the festive season. The region as a whole is seeing a massive growth in the number of Superyachts for short visits and some are now calling Asia ‘home’.
The Rendezvous will kick off early evening on December 16th and all will be full steam ahead from start to finish. S/Y Silolona will welcome many new faces aboard and will without a doubt impress all eyes that look upon her. Two exciting days of sailing have been arranged and sailing yachts will eagerly race one another whilst motor yachts follow in suit.
Off-shore and at sea, day and night, from 16-18 December, Bang Thao Bay will be filled with smiles, laughs and superyacht’s and those passing by will wish they could join in on the excitement of this exclusive event.
