Verventia, the organiser of the Thailand Yacht Show, has announced that the 2021 event has been postponed following an outbreak of coronavirus in the country that has resulted on restrictions on inter-provincial travel, and visitors entering the country from the 12th of January must now undergo a 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
The Thailand Yacht Show 2021 was originally scheduled to take place from the 11th – 14th February but will now take place later in the year. CEO Andy Treadwell commented on the situation:
“We have discussed the options with our principal stakeholders, and all agree that we have no choice in the matter. With only six weeks to go to show opening, and travel restrictions seeming likely to become more widely enforced over the next few weeks, it would simply be irresponsible to continue with plans to stage the show over the Chinese New Year period in February, even if it were allowed. Despite the financial hardships this will cause for our suppliers, our exhibitors, and for ourselves too, we are in full agreement with the government’s anti-Covid safety measures, and we will just have to wait for the situation to ease.”
Phuket and the surrounding islands within the Andaman Sea have proven a popular destination in Southeast Asia for beaches, water sports and nature tours as well as luxury shopping and sensational nightlife.
The new show dates will be announced as soon as possible, with June/July and November being the most likely months for alternatives.
2020 was certainly a year that will be remembered, and one of its best family-sized vessels to be launched onto the Florida and Bahamas charter market should not be forgotten: The 22m/72.2ft luxury yacht RECORD YEAR.

Reach the best snorkelling spots and reefs thanks to the shallow draft, then as sunset approaches watch from the seating or sun pads on the foredeck as the first evening stars emerge.

A pair of MAN V8-1200 engines give an excellent top speed of 32 knots and a fast cruising speed of 20 knots, giving your group more time at the best beaches and fishing spots, and less time in transit.

Elements found in classic cars inspired exterior designer Clifford Denn to create a masculine profile with sharp angles, as evidenced in the raked bow and reverse sheer. There is also the sturdiness of modern vessels that gives an added sense of safety and endurance, while space is efficiently used to make the most of every alfresco social area on board. Current concept images reveal a Jacuzzi on the sundeck, an abundance of sun loungers and outdoor seating across the decks, and tenders stored on the bow to make space in the lower deck stern for a beach club.
The steel displacement hull is designed with a bulbous bow by the Dutch shipyard’s highly experienced naval architects and engineers, granting a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots using her twin MTU 8V4000 M63 engines.

The skylounge above can host up to 100 pax at dockside events, or your group can savour the space and make use of the wet bar facilities and games table in peace.
The outdoor areas give guests the perfect opportunity to marvel at the white cliffs of Long Island, the Blue Hole, the Bight of Acklins and the pink shores of Harbour Island. The infinity pool Jacuzzi on the sundeck has a swim-up bar, and there are plenty of sunpads and sun loungers to unwind and enjoy the moment.
