Thailand scales up International Boat Show


BANGKOK, 12 September 2023: The annual Thailand International Boat Show, set to take place from 11 to 14 January 2024 at the Royal Phuket Marina, will feature an expanded format to attract over 6,000 visitors.

Aligned with the Thai government’s policy to stimulate yacht tourism, organisers JAND Events are working closely with the Thai Yachting Business Association, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, as well as industry stakeholders to promote Thailand as a world-class boating hub.

“The excellent marinas and maintenance facilities, combined with the world-class cruising grounds right on its doorstep, make Phuket a leading light in Southeast Asia’s marine playground,” said the show organiser JAND Events’ CEO David Hayes.

“Thailand’s onshore-offshore appeal continues to grow amongst international boaters, and we are also seeing increasing interest amongst Thais keen to charter and explore boat ownership, further strengthening the importance of Thailand’s marine tourism.”  

The 2024 Thailand International Boat Show will showcase the latest boats, marine products and luxury lifestyle offerings to visitors and igh wealthy individuals across Asia.

Industry response has been positive, with over 80% of the in-water space at the 2024 show already booked. Brokers confirmed to exhibit in-the-water include Simpson Marine, Boat Lagoon Yachting, V Yachts Asia, Derani Yachts, Lee Marine, Asia Yachting, Go Boating, Extreme Marine, The Yacht Sales Co, Leopard Catamarans and Northrop & Johnson who collectively will be representing sail, power and superyacht brands from around the world.

For the 2024 show there will be a new purpose-built air-conditioned exhibition space onshore, which will better connect the in-water, onshore and social spaces for visitors and will house a range of businesses from marine products and services to tech and lifestyle, including Hull Co. Ltd, SEA Yacht Sales, FLS Yacht, the ASA Group, Thailand Privilege, Nava by Thaicom, Flexiteek and Marine Services Asia, to name a few.

Also new this year is the Thailand Yachting Conference and the Robb Report “Best of the Best” Yachting Awards, which will take place on 10 January before the show opens to the public. The Thailand International Boat Show will run from 11 to 14 January 2024 at Royal Phuket Marina.
