This week, the Thailand Yacht Show returns. The largest maritime event hosted in the country, this year it has unveiled an innovative new format that splits the show into two parts over the year.

  • A more industry-focused show will take place this week from 9th – 12 June in Pattaya and

In November 2021, Thailand removed all travel restrictions to the country following the COVID-19 lockdown and has introduced several yacht-friendly legislations to allow the yachting industry to flourish in recent years.
