Next week will see the Asia Pacific Superyachts Phuket attend the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) for the very first time, promoting the fabulous Phuket yacht holiday destination and the significant changes for luxury charter yachts in the region.
“This will be the first time that APS Phuket will be an exhibitor at the Monaco Yacht Show and it will be great to be able to tell owners, managers and captains about the significant changes which are currently taking place in Phuket”, comments Gordon Fernandes, one of the founders of Asia Pacific Superyachts and heading up APS Phuket and APS Myanmar. “The new Thai Charter rules mean that for the first time yachts over 30 meters will be able to charter legally here and this means Phuket will have more visiting yachts and the region as a whole will benefit from this. Yachts will have a viable alternative to the Caribbean winter cruising season.”
APS is known throughout the region for handling the biggest superyachts. Richard Lofthouse of Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia and APS Philippines, comments: “100m+ yachts tend to stick with the company with the name you can trust and only one to move from the Maldives, through Asia and onto NZ and the Pacific with APS offices as their support. However, APS also supports smaller yachts with the same levels of care and professionalism. When you have dealt with ships in the 80 to 120m range, you have the systems and networks in place to deal with anything.”
So far, APS has achieved great results as witnessed in the feedback from clients. Captain Egbert of SY Houbara wrote: “Just dropping a note to thank you enormously for all your kind help. You all have made cruising Indonesia a lot easier. I will be sure to get in touch with you again upon my return, hopefully very soon.” Captain Enrico of charter yacht Plum has also expressed his great satisfaction: “We are leaving from Sorong after one of the best experience in our life. You were right, Raja Ampat is one of the best places in the Planet! I wanted to thank you very much for your impeccable service also for the great staff here in Sorong.”
APS is proud to provide good support for big and small alike throughout the region. The quality service mixed up with the positive changes for Superyachts, including the new rules for superyacht charter in Thailand, promises unforgettable journeys for visiting Superyachts.
Superyacht agency management from Thailand and other Asia Pacific regions will be on hand at Stand No. QA31 at the Monaco Yacht Show 2015.
