Upcoming months of December and January will see Lee Marine, Thailand’s leading yacht sales and service company, deliver several new, luxury, Ferretti Group yachts to the lovely Thai yacht charter destination – Phuket. These will include superyacht Custom Line 112’ NEXT, motor yacht Ferretti 881 RPH, as well as two new, superfast Pershing 82’ yacht and Pershing 64’.
It is possibly the largest influx of such luxury yachts, including the stunning Custom Line 112’ NEXT, ever brought to Phuket at one time. All of the yachts will be domiciled on the island where their owners will use them for cruising and “having fun” around the Andaman Sea and elsewhere in South East Asia.
Lee Marine Managing Director, Josh Lee commented: “We are delighted to announce the arrival of these new models and excited for our owners. Phuket continues to see significant growth in the marine industry. This will create many more jobs for locals.”
Mr. Lee added: “Look out for these yachts sailing around Singapore and the Andaman Sea during the upcoming season.”
The Custom Line 112’ NEXT superyacht coming to Phuket is the largest vessel in Ferretti’s fleet, and will be one of the largest, if not these largest, yacht domiciled on Phuket. The yachts are made of composite materials (rather than aluminum) and capable of planing at up to 32 knots powered by twin 2, 735 hp MTU/DDC engines.
The triple deck layout includes a master, VIP and two guest staterooms plus four crew cabins. The yacht has a distinctive raised pilothouse to separate owner and guests from the operational side, underwent sea trials in recent months in Croatia, Montenegro and along the Italian coast.
A Spa Pool hot tub on the fly bridge, a dazzling array of electronic gadgets to open and shut everything and super luxurious furnishings are all standard. The Custom Line 112’ NEXT coming to Phuket has been extensively modified to meet the owner’s specific tastes.
The Ferretti 881 RPH super yacht provides beautifully comfortable accommodation for up to six guests in three cabinets, each with its own bathroom. It can reach a top speed of 31.5 knots powered by twin 2.211 hp MTU engines. A large garage aft with hydraulic opening can store a jet ski to speed over the calm waters around Phuket.
Pershings are known as the “Ferraris of the Seas” with good cause. The Pershing 82’ can hit 46 knots and the Pershing 64’, 48 knots, their wake throwing up a distinctive “rooster tail” effect which is already visible around Phuket from other Pershings based on the island. The Pershing 82’ is powered by twin MTU 16 V M93 engines and the Pershing 64’ by twin 2/1 550 hp, MAN V12 diesel inboard engines. Both come with the luxurious Pershing white and gray interior with furnishing from some of Italy’s top design houses. The standard specifications outlined here on all of these yachts can be altered to meet the owner’s individual requirements.
Said Mr. Lee: “We expect these yachts to become common sights around Phuket and beyond in Asia. Their arrival here testifies to the popularity of this region for cruising on some of the world’s best luxury yachts. Lee Marine is proud to be the Ferretti Group agent to have brought such beautiful yachts to this part of the world. Stay tuned for more news on our premium brand Riva.”
