iTravel Exclusives attended the inaugural ‘Thailand Yacht Show 2016’ held from 8-14 February and attracted more than 2,000 visitors. The event is an important part of a broader strategy implemented by the Thai government to position Thailand as the ‘Marina Hub of ASEAN’ and to boost Thailand’s credentials as a world class, quality leisure tourism destination.
Many of the world’s best yacht makers were on-hand to show off their products, with a total of 50 yachts being showcased at the event. Among the show’s many highlights was a 73-metre super yacht called “Titania”, made by Burgess, one of the world’s premier shipyards. It features 2 master cabins, a gym, jacuzzi and even an elevator. It can be chartered for a week at US$600,000.
