The regional boat show seasons begins with PIMEX - Asia’s favourite boat show - on 21 March. Recent additions to the line-up at PIMEX are a number of new and returning exhibitors bringing new and exciting products to the market.

Siam Royal View has added outstanding marina facilities to its award winning Koh Chang resort property venture. The luxury development now boasts a state-of-the-art marina, which finally opens the attractive eastern part of Thailand’s Gulf up to yachtsmen.

Krabi Boat Lagoon opened in 2011. The first premier marina complex in Krabi, they will be exhibiting in the Hall at PIMEX 2013. Krabi has become a marine hub and is the gateway to nearby islands such as Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Koh Kai and Koh Rok - all absolutely ideal for swimming, snorkeling and diving.
