The Asia Pacific Superyacht Summit was a great success

The inaugural Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit was a great success. YachtEye was a proud sponsor of the two-day event, which aimed to develop the Asian superyacht market and attract more yachts to the region.

The inaugural Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit recently drew to a close, with around 200 delegates registered from Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Europe. YachtEye was a proud sponsor of the two-day event, which aimed to develop the Asian superyacht market and attract more yachts to the region.

Organised by SuperYacht Times, under the patronage of Simpson Superyachts, the groundbreaking event serves as a catalyst for fostering collaboration and innovation within the superyacht sector, paving the way for enhanced opportunities and growth across the Asia-Pacific region.

The event started with opening words from Merijn de Waard, followed by an in-depth presentation of the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Report by SuperYacht Times' Head of Intelligence Ralph Dazert.

Day one included talks such as managing & operating yachts in the Asia-Pacific, building a yacht charter fleet in Asia, how to get more yachts in Asia-Pacific and develop a charter market, how Dubai became a hub for UHWNI superyachts and selling superyachts in Asia.

Like our successful Gulf Superyacht Summit, the two-day event included a Networking Dinner on the first evening of the event, where attendees were able to connect with colleagues from across the industry.

Day two provided more insightful topics and discussions from expert panellists, with a welcome coffee event in the morning, before attendees and panellists took their seats for the first discussion.

Talks included the Business of Marinas: How to build a successful marina in Asia, how European yacht builders try to attract more Asian clients, creating a charter market in Indonesia with phinisi yachts, the future of yacht construction in Asia, navigating the new-build journey and travelling off the beaten track. 

The two-day event then concluded with event partner Damen Yachting’s Managing Director, Rose Damen providing a keynote interview on the value of the Asia-Pacific region, the yard's strategy over the coming years and the changing landscape of the superyacht construction sector.

“With over 200 people registered, we welcomed around 170 attendees today, with an excellent mix of participants from Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Europe, ” explained SuperYacht Times Founder & Director Merijn de Waard.“

“The balance of panels, speakers, and the allocation of speaking time versus networking time has been spot on, with many attendees reconnected with people they hadn’t seen in a long time or met for the first time, which was wonderful to see.”
