Thailand Yacht Show
The Thailand Yacht Show (TYS) 2016 will be held from 15 to 18 December and will showcase a line-up of premier yachting, boating and luxury brands at Ao Po Grand Marina, Phuket.
The event is supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), in partnership with the Ministry of Transport and the Marine Department, along with many other important officials and key business leaders. It is hoped that the Thailand Yacht Show will promote marine tourism and boost the kingdom’s reputation as a quality leisure destination.
Visitors will have a chance to view and even try out boats and yachts presented by Lee Marine, Boat Lagoon Yachting, Simpson Marine, Asia Marine, Multihull Solutions, Leopard Catamarans and Burgess Yachts, among many others.
The potential economic impact for Thailand as a result of the improved marine infrastructure is huge. It is proven that yachting tourists spend far more than any other tourism sector. On average, a super yacht owner will spend between US$1 million and US$2 million (35.45 million-70.9 million Baht) in the country in which the yacht is based for a season.
