This year’s Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) has marked a very successful exhibit debut of the top Superyacht Agency in Asia Pacific, the Asia Pacific Superyachts (APS), as reported by a dozen APS agents from Asia Pacific regions. During the prestigious event, APS met old clients as well as future private and charter yacht visitors, and shared new information with superyacht owners, captains, superyacht managers, superyacht charter operators, as well as other industry professionals.
Captain Charlie Dwyer of APS Koh Samui, Thailand and Langkawi, Malaysia, said: “We were able to answer many of our clients’ questions. It was great to meet up with our old clients and future superyacht visitors to answer all their questions and tell them of new developments and destinations in Asia and the Pacific.”
Captain Charlie commented on successful features of participating at MYS: “APS was able to arrange private meetings on-site with superyacht owners and captains to draft custom itineraries of their regions by the APS network of superyacht experts. We were also pleased with the response to our APS Times annual newspaper and to the debuting APS comprehensive company brochure. They were a great success with current and future APS clients and, as well, distributed to all MYS exhibitors.”
Etienne Boutin from APS Tahiti team reported: “We know of at least two large yachts that have made the decision to change their itinerary from the Caribbean to two years in Asia Pacific regions.” Charlie Dwyer added: “We were impressed with the amount of interest in Asia Pacific Superyachts at the Monaco Yacht Show. It was terrific to share new itineraries, charter laws in service and destinations and to learn of new interest in visiting APS serviced destinations so we can better serve our superyacht clients.”
“We also enjoyed meeting up with superyacht owners and captains stopping by to express interest in our annual gathering of superyachts, the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, held Dec. 16-18 in Phuket”, said Captain Charlie, co-founder of the elite event with Gordon Fernandes of APS Phuket and Myanmar, celebrating the elite event’s 15th year in 2015.
So far, APS has taken care of 300+ private and charter yachts, representing 17 regions in 15 countries.
