The APS team at their new Phuket headquarters Asia Pacific Superyachts
'Asia Pacific Superyachts Phuket is growing', reports General Manager Gordon Fernandes: 'We're pleased to announce our headquarters move to a brand new purpose-built office in preparation of the exciting times ahead as more yachts discover the amazing cruising available in South East Asia.' While the new offices offer increased facilities and staff to service their clients, Gordon notes the company will continue to keep their APS office at the Yacht Haven Marina, central to all the yachting activities in Phuket, Thailand. Recently relocated from Patong to the new larger premises, the purpose-built main office provides extra facilities and the finest of services to visiting and resident Superyachts. 'Our brand new expanded offices will allow the company to grow; we were running out of space in the old Patong office and we need to expand our charter and crew placement services. New staff are being recruited to support our new office which has been designed to feature extra conference, meeting and video conference facilities – all of which will make it easier for our clients to communicate to us and for our company to support our clients' needs', comments Gordon. Asia Pacific Superyachts is an established company with a worldwide reputation as the leading yacht agency for South East Asia and the Pacific. Representing Superyacht service and guidance for Phuket and Myanmar, the Phuket office has over 20 years combined experience in the superyacht industry led by the highly experienced GM Gordon with Thai owner, JoJo, providing a special relationship link with Phuket Customs, Immigration and Harbour departments. Superyachts of various sizes have been coming to Phuket for over 15 years, a major destination for yachts visiting the Indian Ocean. Basing their yacht in Phuket for the season, APS Phuket sets forth an itinerary with provisioning and all arrangements for Superyachts cruising to areas such as Myanmar (Burma), the Andaman Islands and beyond. While in Phuket, the island now boasts three marinas where superyachts can berth along with numerous anchorages while owners and their guests, captains and crew hugely enjoy the paradise island of crystal clear blue waters, stunning beaches, lush tropical ambience and world class onshore entertainment. The new Asia Pacific Superyachts Phuket headquarters will support the growing number of visiting yachts and new marinas being built to meet the increased interest from the yachting industry. Phuket, a great year-round destination with amazing cruising and sailing opportunities to the many wonders of South East Asia!
