The Thai Yachting Business Association (TYBA) proudly announces the Thailand Charter Week. A business to business event offered exclusively to bona fide charter brokers, central agents, luxury travel agents and tour operators. The TYBA is keen to give international industry professionals the opportunity to discover some of South East Asia’s finest cruising grounds on board some of the region’s best charter yachts. The program starts with a 3-day "yacht hop", to inspect yachts on display in the world-class Phuket Yacht Haven marina, followed by a 3-day “familiarisation cruise” aboard one of the yachts. The 3-day charter yacht display will also include panel discussions and destination seminars with local companies. Visiting charter brokers will be able to consult and learn about the destination, making this event the perfect experience to help them sell Phuket to their international clientele. During the final 3 days visiting brokers will be on board several yachts to discover the spectacular Phuket cruising grounds and indulge in the finest sailing experiences Phuket offers. During the 6 days of the charter show, participants will be entertained with a variety of activities, parties and lifestyle events which are put together for a unique experience.

Participating Yachts

The Thailand Charter Week will welcome a wide range of charter yachts offering charters in various daily , weekly and budget ranges. Most are based in the South-East Asian region for several years in destinations such as Phuket (Thailand), Mergui Archipelago(Myanmar), Langkawi (Malaysia) or the Indonesian Islands. We will match charter brokers and agents with the right type of yacht and crew. Invitation to the familiarisation trip will be sent to established charter brokers via charter broker associations overseas.
