Why is a boat show important?


There are many and varied reasons for attending the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show, to be held from 21 – 24 November at Ocean Marina Yacht Club.

First off, if you are in the leisure marine business, it’s a great way to keep up with pricing in the industry. In short, to know what costs what, especially when it comes to yacht brokerage.

The show also provides an excellent 4-day long networking opportunity for not only industry players, but also consumers. Many of the major players in Southeast Asia’s yachting industry will be at the show and what better way to get insight into the best buys, latest trends and more than direct from the experts!

While many are complaining about the strong value of the Thai baht these days, there’s never been a better time for a Thai national (or resident who’s finances are in-country and in baht) to buy a boat. You can simply get more value for your baht right now and that puts you in the driving seat when shopping around and negotiating the best deal.

And if you’re thinking about getting involved in or buying a boat for the first time, that’s great news. The show can give you an idea of the costs involved and the boat best suited for your needs. You can also learn how to navigate and operate a boat as there are a number of sailing schools that operate out of Ocean Marina.

The show will also give an insight into new innovations and products as leading boat brands, chandleries and manufacturers will be displaying their latest models, gadgets and gizmos.

If you are contemplating buying a boat and keeping it at Ocean Marina, you should know that Ocean Marina is the largest marina in Southeast Asia offering over 455 superior quality and modern floating berths for boats up to 65 metres. The marina is designed to accommodate all boats from day runabouts to superyachts, with power and water utilities on the dock.

Whether it’s a marine product or specific service you’re looking for, you can find them all in one place. There are over 30 tenants who open their service shops daily within the Ocean Marina complex including boat builders, boat dealers, boat parts, water sport accessories, yacht charter, mini-mart, sailing instruction and more.
