Small Boats to Superyachts at Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show

Following recent improvements to the rules for international yachts visiting Pattaya Thailand's marine tourism industry is poised for dramatic growth.

 The 5th edition of the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show, taking place until 27 November 2016, has an expanded line-up of 28 boats in-the-water and more onshore. Some 6,000 people are expected to visit the marine and lifestyle festival.

Ranging from small day boats up to superyachts, the three largest boats on display at this year's show include the Monte Carlo Yachts 86, Princess 88 Motor Yacht and the largest of all – the 41-metre Ocean Emerald, which stared in the Hollywood movie, Point Break (2015).

 International boat brands from Europe and the USA are on display alongside the best local builds from Thailand's boat building industry, a sign of the increased interest in boat ownership, and a driver of future charter market growth.

“It's very encouraging to see how the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show continues to grow each year,” said Dr. Tirachai Pipitsupaphol, Managing Director, Ocean Property. “This year we have the largest number of boats ever on display and onshore there is diverse range of products from marine to lifestyle as well as luxury property. Over the four day show there's lots for visitors to do and Ocean Marina is a great place for families and friends to meet and relax by the sea.”

In addition to the impressive boat line-up, there are all manner of marine products, accessories and services, as well as charter, insurance, marine toys and gadgets, and water sports.

 Onshore some of Thailand's finest properties are exhibiting as well as a collection of lifestyle products and services that complement the nautical lifestyle.

 “Pattaya is already Thailand's domestic marine leisure playground. With the Gulf of Thailand opening up to visiting international yachts and the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show showcasing Thailand's marine industry to the world, we expect to see the region grow considerably in the coming years,” Dr. Tirachai added.

Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show is open daily from 11:00 to 19:00. Entry to the event is free.
