Kata Rocks Super Yacht Rendezvous
The annual Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous takes place in the luxurious Kata Rocks Resort located at the south end of Phuket. The invitation-only event welcomes a fleet of super yachts and a guest list of prestigious industry leaders including UHNWI, brokers, business owners and yacht manufacturers.
Sun, cocktails and caviar, brunch cruises and private dinners fill this three day celebration making it one of the most exclusive yachting events of the year.
CEO of Infinite Luxury (the company behind Kata Rocks), Richard Pope took over running the event in 2016. He hopes Kata Rocks Rendezvous will encourage more super yachts to Asia, away from the more traditional destinations of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
These events showcase the lifestyle and allow super yacht owners to envisage themselves exploring these new territories. Attracting an up-market clientele to these regions is beneficial for the growth of the economy and with an increase in yacht orders by 0.7% between 2016-17, it is an industry that continues to flourish.
Asia, with its untapped potential is predicted to become the next big thing. Incredible food, beaches and crystal waters make it an ideal destination for the ever explorative super yacht industry.
