Having provided an amazing view on fabulous Bang Tao Bay during the elite Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, the ‘Parade Formation’ featured 458m of superb sail and motor Superyachts. The 2012 event took place in the beautiful Thai yacht charter destination – Phuket.
The sociable gathering of Superyacht owners, captains, crew and guests hosted at the Angsana Laguna, Phuket was the 12th annual December event held in Phuket and featured friendly but competitive races – with the opening kicking off at an evening cocktail party with crew entertainment aboard the beautiful charter yacht Silolona.
“Other fun events included famed ‘Feadship Challenge’ model boat building & races, land & sea ‘Pirate Booty’ treasure hunt and the closing VIP Boat International Gala Dinner”, report Asia Pacific Superyachts Phuket Gordon Fernandes and Asia Pacific Superyachts Samui Charlie Dwyer – organisers of the prestigious global event.
The closing Boat International Gala Dinner came complete with a baby elephant at the pre-dinner cocktail party. On the beach under soft tropical skies, owners and captains and their guests wined and dined with gusto before sending up the ‘Floating Chiang Mai Lanterns’ to the stars.
