Power and Sail Superyachts will be streaming into Phuket from the Mediterranean and other international seas for the prestigious and fun Asia Superyacht Rendezvous December 16-18, 2010 – the 10-year anniversary event is increased from two to three days – with a second race added and more time for relaxed socializing.

The first wave of Superyachts confirmed, include: the 50M M/Y Perseus built by Perini Navi in 2001; the M/Y Maverick II, built by Sterling in 1988; the 57M S/Y Montigne built by Aegean Yachts in 2009; the 40.3M M/Y My Lady Arraya built by Oceanfast in 1990 and based in Thailand; the 36.07M S/Y Vie Sans Soucis built by Kings Yachts in Taiwan; the 74M M/Y Silver Zwei built in 2009; the 30M S/Y Asia built in 1997 by Paul Johnson; and the 49.7M S/Y Silolona of Indonesia, a traditional wooden Phinisi schooner hand-built in 2004 by Konjo craftsmen from south Sulawesi.

The Superyacht Silolona will welcome Asia Superyacht Rendezvous guests aboard for the December 16 opening “Sunset Cocktail Party” on quiet Nai Harn Bay. The following day’s first race on December 17 will have sailing vessels accompanied by mammoth power ‘floating palaces’ on a course from Nai Harn Bay north to south to Pansea Bay. A second race will be held December 18, racing from Surin Bay and back, with course set forth by renowned Race Director, Andy Dowden. Evening social events including ‘The Challenge’ model boat races, the ‘Rolling Stock Crew Party’ and ‘Boat International Gala Dinner’ all all part of the fun!

Some vessels will continue on to enjoy an extended Andaman cruising holiday during the cold European winter. Those seeking to extend their holiday will be awarded an amazing treat, report organisers Gordon Fernandes, General Manager of Asia Pacific Superyachts and Captain Charles Dwyer of the Yanneke Too: “While enjoying a luxury yacht setting, some of the owners and captains extend their holiday and stream out for the distinctly different cruising on Thailand’s Andaman coast following our event. Owners, Captains and crew love visiting Phuket as South East Asia offers so much in diversity and adventure – stepping up to be the Monaco of the East!” Superyachts 30M or 100′ welcome to join as guest of organisers Captain Charlie Dwyer and Gordon Fernandes.
