It is always a spectacular site when superyachts gather and when a fleet of stunning superyachts come together for the 17th annual Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup, it will be even more spectacular!

The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup, to be held again at the exclusive SALA Phuket Resort on pristine Mai Khao Bay, will be a weekend of excitement filled with sailing, camaraderie and parties in a friendly but competitive atmosphere in pursuit of winning the ‘ASR Cup’. There will also be a Corinthian Class for those who prefer non-competitive fun sailing.

A wonderful experience for owners and captains and crew, Captain Pascal Pellat-Finet of S/Y Tiara enthused after attending the last Cup, “Fair sailing with great people. An event not to miss”.

The prestigious, invitation-only sailing yacht regatta accompanied by an entourage of beautiful motor yachts will offer participating guests unprecedented luxury and deluxe services at the hosting SALA Resort Phuket. SALA’s Group Director of Business Development, Mr Nicolas Reschke, and Regional General Manager, Mr Jon Ashenden, reported: “Following our successful partnership last year, we are delighted to support the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous once again this year to create a memorable experience for all the attending superyacht owners, captains, crew and VIP guests”.

“Not only does this unique event associate the SALA brand with the luxury leisure sector, it also helps shine the light on Mai Khao Beach as a stunning tropical destination for visitors arriving by land or sea”, continued Mr Reschke, “the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous has strong synergy with SALA Phuket as we strive to offer our guests an exclusive, personalised experience with plenty of opportunities for fun exploration and inspiring adventures”.

The resort combines historical Sino–Portuguese architecture with luxury hotel facilities in one of the most dramatic settings in Phuket. Located on Phuket’s northwest shoreline, it’s only 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport, from nearby Blue Canyon Country Club and from the famed Phang Nga Bay.

Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup Organiser, Gordon Fernandes, noted, “As always, the ASR Cup is a fantastic chance to either market your boat with international media covering the event, or just to have some fun with friends old and new on the beautiful Phuket coastline. Yachts will be given valuable exposure, while owners’ privacy will be respected at all times. We look forward to welcoming all to the largest on-water gathering of superyachts in Asia”.
