The delights of the annual Phuket Rendezvous are already well known to quite a number of Feadship owners. This year’s event, which ran from 4 to 7 January, was given an extra sparkle by playing host to the first Christofle Yacht Style Awards.
Launched to celebrate the tenth birthday of Yacht Style magazine, the awards represent an exciting step forward for the Asia-Pacific boating industry. Some 300 VIPs, yacht owners and key personalities from the yachting industry were present at the ceremony and gala dinner hosted by Phuket Boat Lagoon.
The audience applauded enthusiastically when Feadship won the prestigious award as Best International Superyacht Builder. This was accepted on our behalf by owner’s representative Hans Doodkorte and Joshua Lee from Lee Marine, Thailand’s leading luxury yachting company. Having been closely involved in the build of the Feadship Samaya, launched last year for a family which spends a lot of time exploring diving spots in Asia, both understand Feadship quality first hand.
“Samaya is a good example for us of the rapidly increasing interest in motoryachts in the Asia-Pacific region,” says Feadship marketing & brand director Farouk Nefzi. “We are very pleased to have been recognised as the finest international motoryacht builder and to see more and more Feadships sailing in this part of the world."
