Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous Returns

Asia’s most exclusive superyacht event from 6-9 December 2018, Phuket
Sponsored by Infinite Luxury, and in collaboration with luxury Thai Resort Kata Rocks, this unique event will see some of the world’s most iconic superyacht brands come together on Phuket.


November 2018

The KRSR, now in its third year, welcomed over 16 superyachts and 6 yachts to last year’s event confirming its elite status as one of the fastest growing and most impressive superyacht gatherings in Southeast Asia.

By invitation only, the KRSR aims to bring superyacht enthusiasts together with a curated guest list that includes owners, industry professionals and a mix of media from all corners of the globe. The event reflects why many deem Thailand to be a world-class superyachting destination, offering exotic scenery and culture, renowned hospitality and first-rate marinas with excellent infrastructure for larger yachts.

Richard Pope, CEO Infinite Luxury said, “We are thrilled that guests and superyacht owners enjoy the bespoke activities, glamorous parties and social events. The KRSR is fast becoming the must-attend event on the Asian Yachting calendar.”

Kata Rocks are delighted to welcome back world-leading luxury yachting brands, prestigious shipyards and the most respected brokerage houses, with support from brands including Royal Husiman, Hemisphere Monaco, Burgess, Benetti, Camper & Nicholsons, Lee Marine, Princess Yachts South East Asia, Northrop & Johnson, and many more to be announced soon.

The organisers are also delighted to welcome Oceanco to the KRSR, marking the first time it has officially joined the leading superyacht event in Asia. Oceanco will host an exclusive owner’s dinner in a Kata Rocks Penthouse pool villa. This great partnership comes following a highly successful 2018 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) attended by The KRSR team.

Oceanco Group Marketing Manager, Paris Baloumis said, “Oceanco is pleased to be joining the Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous for the first time. Oceanco yacht owners are known to cruise extensively aboard their yachts and we understand that Thailand has become an increasingly popular destination.”

Oceanco’s award-winning pedigree features some of the most sophisticated yachts on the water today. It is a world leader in building prestigious custom yachts from 80 to 140 metres, integrating timeless Dutch craftsmanship with sophisticated new world know-how and the technology of tomorrow. Oceanco’s 295ft yacht, DAR, was recently launched and was turning heads at MYS 2018.

Guests can expect a curated programme of experiences and plenty of luxury. Other highly anticipated events include: the Superyacht Captain’s dinner, presented by Benetti and Hemisphere Monaco, a Champagne media breakfast presented by Benetti, a Camper & Nicholsons and Royal Huisman cocktail party, an exclusive cocktail event presented by Princess Yachts South East Asia, the private beach BBQ at The Surin Phuket and many more.

This year, Kata Rocks will launch the Rendezvous with an exclusive reception inspired by the unique Peranakan culture and Sino-Portuguese heritage of old Phuket Town.

“Phuket is a magnificent destination for yachting – not just because of the scenery but also because of the amazing Thai people, their hospitality and, of course, the food. People are often not aware of the unique cultural heritage of old Phuket Town, combining colourful Sino-Portuguese architecture, art galleries, cafés and authentic cuisine. We want to foster this cultural heritage and share this unique legacy with our guests,” said Michael Nurbatlian, Director of Marketing Infinite Luxury.

Further events and partners for this year’s KRSR are still to be announced. For more details on the event visit:
