Phuket's newest and most-exciting gathering of yachts, boats and luxury brands will open its doors in just over a month's time, hosting on-water displays, wine, cocktail and champagne tastings, as well as vibrant parties both on yachts and on-land.
For industry professionals, the Thailand Yacht Forum will take place the day before the show (Feb 10) at Phuket Yacht Haven, providing an update of the regulation changes, as well as presenting insight into the region’s cruising grounds and growing infrastructure.

Lee Marine will be presenting the biggest fleet of boats in its 18-year history. Representing top brands from the Ferretti Group (Ferretti Yachts, Pershing Yachts, Custom Line and Riva) Riviera, and Cantiere delle Marche, as well as a number of superyachts, gives a full picture of what Lee Marine offers yachting enthusiasts.
