Boat Lagoon Yachting Co., Thailand’s largest importer and distributor of luxury yachts, has made history by bringing in the largest single shipment of luxury yachts ever.

The 1.4-billion-baht shipment comprises nine luxury yachts manufactured in the United Kingdom by one of the world’s leading builders, Princess Yachts, with sizes ranging from 62 feet to a superyacht of over 100 feet.

“This very large shipment helps further solidify Boat Lagoon Yachting’s position as Thailand’s leading importer of luxury yachts and one of the largest in the region,” said Managing Director Vrit Yongsakul. “It adds to the 200 boats we already have in the water throughout the region, giving us the economy of scale to further invest in the most comprehensive after-sales and maintenance facilities.”

“We are seeing surging interest in the yachting lifestyle, especially in Thailand,” Vrit added. “It’s largely being driven by the appeal of the absolute privacy that luxury yachts provide an owner together with giving the owner an ability to reach beautiful and uncrowded beaches, and at any time at the owner’s pleasure. Because of the level of comfort and luxury of modern yachts, it’s like taking your own condominium with you, complete with living room, kitchen and bedrooms.”

He said that yachting was also a very social sport where friends and family take several yachts out together to go cruising to islands in the way that owners of luxury sports cars or motorcycles will go out in groups during weekends, helping to cement long-lasting friendships.

The fleet of new arrivals includes a Princess 62, Princess 64, two Princess S65s, a Princess 68, two 80-foot Princess 75 Motor Yachts, an 88-foot Princess 88 Motor Yacht, and a 100-foot Princess 30M superyacht with prices ranging from around 80-450 million baht.

“The Princess 62 is the newest addition to the Princess line of luxury yachts and incorporates the latest ship-building technology to make the yacht lighter, stronger and more fuel-efficient and with an interior design that is bright and airy,” Vrit said.
