The Thailand Yacht Show has two distinct sections: exhibition space on-land, and on-water show berths for day boats, cruisers, yachts and superyachts. Its hosting venue Ao Po Grand Marina is near the scenic islands of Phang Nga Bay and it can easily accommodate 50 or 60 superyachts up to 150m in length. Any one of them can easily slip its berth during the show to go for a trial run with a keen client.

The exhibition marquee will encompass an additional 30% of floor space that will cater for featured equipment demonstrations, the latest dive products, interactive simulators and the Thai Marine Business Association (TMBA) lounge. The on-water section will have an array of marine activities including the return of the well-received demonstration platform, toys and tenders, docking challenges and the hugely popular floating lounge by HYPE Boat Club. 

With all the leading regional dealerships and brokerage houses preparing to join the show, the organisers are anticipating over 60 boats, yachts, and superyachts on display, ranging from 15-metres to 80-metres and up, sprawled out along the newly installed superyacht docks at Ao Po Grand Marina.
