Raphael Sauleau, CEO of Fraser, commented: “Asia is an increasingly important and growing market for Fraser and we are seeing the region become ever more popular as a yachting destination. As the infrastructure and regulations improve, we want to be in a key position to respond to the growing local demand.”
The five new offices will join the already existing Sydney and Singapore Fraser offices in the Asia Pacific region, and are managed by Asia Marine’s CEO Eric Noyel (in Hong Kong, Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam) and Vincent Tabuteau (in Thailand).
“Asia Marine’s well established and wide network of offices made them an obvious choice to help expand our presence in the region,” added Sauleau.
“They are award-winning companies with a good range of yachts available in the area and we look forward to working closely with them to offer our services to new and existing clients.”
Noyel commented: “We are delighted to be joining forces with such a well-known brand as Fraser, our highly experienced sales, charter and management teams will be able to combine their local knowledge with that of the experts at Fraser and offer the best service to all of our clients.”
Tabuteau said: “Over the years, we have seen an increasing number of superyachts visiting Phuket where many are now based permanently.
“We are enchanted and honoured to be associated with Fraser for the future development of the superyacht market in Thailand and also the promotion of Fraser’s yachts in other worldwide destinations.”
