In 2009, 88m Asean Lady topped the list with other new additions including Fox and Lady D. As the world of boating continues to turn its gaze towards Asia, more and more yachts are looking to stay in Asia’s available marine options. With the growth of marinas in the region, and a continued interest in Southeast Asia’s fantastic cruising waters, the 2010 list is likely to include many new surprises.
The prestigious Shanghai Travelers’ Club is also promoting yachting VIP events for its wealthy Chinese members, and has a strong role in promoting the yacht luxury lifestyle for rich Shanghainese.
With the industry slowly but surely picking up since 2009, the Asian yacht market has been steadily on the rise. To qualify as Asian, the yachts have to be either based in the region, or stationed in the region for at least one year as of the time of list’s publication.
Also featured in this coming edition of Asia-Pacific Boating are reviews of the Kingship Columbus 90 and the Princess V85.
