The Monaco Yacht Show opened September 23, bringing together the global yachting and superyacht community and industry to the greatest show of its type in the world. The superyacht show and exhibition of superyachts is where visitors can meet up with leading industry experts to discuss their next yacht voyage, learn what changes are underway and when future yachting destinations might become available.
A unique and tailor-made visit experience into superyachting, the Asia-Pacific Superyachts Association (APSA) Chairman, Nigel Beatty, and Asia Pacific Superyachts (APS) Co-Founder & APSA Committee Member, Gordon Fernandes, are on hand at MYS to discuss the growing popularity of the Asia Pacific area for unique adventure superyacht cruising.
During the Monaco Yacht Show, Gordon Fernandes is actively involved in supporting the APSA Chairman and organisation in promoting Asian yacht business members and for worldwide yacht businesses that want to do business in Asia, promoting the South, South East and Eastern Asia region to the global superyacht community as one of the world’s three main cruising regions, explaining:
“Though we cannot have a Stand this year due to Covid-19, it is important to us to have an APS representative in place to meet face-to-face with our past and future clients and provide answers to owners and captains directly about cruising destinations and new regulations and restriction lifting. I am also passionate about supporting APSA and the organisation’s goals.”
Fernandes further comments, “We are the leading Superyacht agency in the Asia and Pacific region and I’m excited to share new Asia Pacific itineraries, growing services for superyachts, and current status and future country openings in the Asia Pacific. I’ve been busy meeting Superyacht Owners and Captains interested in new cruising grounds and those seeking new adventures away from the crowded Med and Caribbean, during the cold European winter”.
Bringing the latest updates of cruising the Asia Pacific as well to charter specialists, managers and other industry professionals, Fernandes says, “We are proud of our reputation in offering streamlined arrival and departure modes, representing an extension of the close cooperation between APS agents and local government and marine authorities”.
New information about marinas and yacht clubs in the Asia Pacific and the now fully developed “Asia Superyacht Hubs” meet all the needs of currently arriving superyachts in the Maldives, Thailand, Langkawi (Malaysia) and Indonesia, Fernandes adds, noting, “Other Asia Pacific countries are already beginning to open as we head toward the backend of the pandemic”.
