Many of the world’s sleekest superyachts will set a course in December for the Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous (KRSR) in Phuket, a jewel of a magical Thai island in the Andaman Sea. KRSR is sponsored and hosted by Infinite Luxury, the development and management brand behind the elegant Kata Rocks boutique resort and residences. Open to sailing and motor yachts over 24 meters in length, KRSR is the inaugural event at Kata Rocks. Having participated in similar superyacht rendezvous events over the past few years in different parts of the world, Kata Rocks is now launching its own spectacular by invitation-only rendezvous designed to bring world-wide elite yacht aficionados together. And you don’t have to own a super yacht-yet. Kata Rocks villa owners are invited to join super yacht owners in a festive and enjoyable social environment. What you can expect in Phuket are exclusive dinners for yacht owners to meet each other, media exposure for charter yachts, and an opportunity for industry businesses to meet potential clients. In Southeast Asia, the charter season officially opens in December, and this will be celebrated with a Charter Season Opening Party.
We look forward to launching the inaugural Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous in Phuket. This Asian season opening event (Charter Season Opening Party) is complimentary for superyacht and Kata Rocks villa owners and invited yachting professionals.
