Marina Pattaya Boat Show continues to grow each year,” said Dr. Tirachai Pipitsupaphol,

number of boats ever on display and onshore there is diverse range
of products from marine to lifestyle as well as luxury property.

showcasing Thailand's marine industry to the world, we expect to
see the region grow considerably in the coming years,” Dr. Tirachai
