It will be full steam ahead from the opening “Boat Hop” with cocktails, where guests can get to know the different boats on an individual basis.

And what a line-up it is – ten jaw-dropping superyachts will be anchored in Kata Bay including motor yachts M/Y Maid Marian 2, M/Y Moonsand, M/Y Maverick and the 50m M/Y Sapphire.

These stunning motor yachts are really a sight to behold; beautiful engineering mixed with elegant interiors make these vast yachts truly exquisite.

Six breathtaking sailing yachts join them: the magnificent S/Y Argo and the beautiful S/Y Capricorn will join for the first time, as well as the dazzling S/Y Intrigue along with the stunning S/Y Schooner Sunshine – and the hosts are honored to have the luxurious S/Y Yanneke Too, as well as the very powerful S/Y Shamoun, returning to the prestigious event.

Activities over the three days include two days of friendly but competitive sailing races, the “Feadship Challenge” model boat-building and cocktail party, pirate treasure hunt and ending gala dinner.

All participating yachts have also been offered a week’s free berthing at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi. Just another one of the many reasons many stunning Superyachts continually choose to participate at the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous.
