Southeast Asia’s leading luxury yacht company, Yacht Solutions, has just secured a new superyacht refit facility in Bangkok Thailand. Responding to the need for more superyacht refit and repair facilities in the Asian region from both owners of superyachts based in Asia but also those travelling from Europe, Yacht Solutions has found the perfect site. This new facility was required to cater for alongside work and can take some of the largest yachts in the world.

Its location, being in the vibrant city of Bangkok and only one hour from Bangkok international airport (the transiting hub of Southeast Asia) works because it is extremely appealing to owners, captains and crew.

The facility (300 metres x 100 metres) comfortably caters for vessels up to 200 metres in length. The Yacht Solutions Bangkok facilities now boast a haul-out for a maximum of 85 metres and 1,500 tonnes as well as access to two 115 metre dry docks, alongside berthing, two floating docks up to 160m and 3000 tonnes lift capacity.

Gareth Twist, the Managing Director of Yacht Solutions comments that 'we have been in the marine refit and repair business in Thailand for 10 years and this seems the natural progression for our business. The superyacht industry in Asia is growing and recent trends show that there has been a year on year increase in the number of superyachts either in the region or transiting through the region and we are very keen to attract those vessels to our facility in Thailand for planned or emergency refits, repairs or conversion work'.

Mr Twist adds that 'we have a tremendous pool of talented craftsmen here in Thailand and our Yacht Solutions facility combines European management, standards and quality with the renowned finishing skills of Thai craftsmen. Our unique combination ensures international standards are maintained while owners receive exceptional value for money and service due to the efficiencies of operating out of Thailand. With this facility we are able to compete with the European yards but with the distinct advantage of a lower labour cost base'.

Yacht Solutions has successfully completed extensive refit projects on the 54m M/Y Pegaso, 40m M/Y Amoha, 35m M/Y Nymphaea and the 36m M/Y White Rabbit.

Yacht Solutions is Southeast Asia’s premier superyacht marine consultancy. Launched in 2001 in Phuket, the company offers exceptional services and is the parent company of Ruea Yachts, which hand-builds new luxury superyachts up to 85 metres using cutting edge European marine technology and design combined with the renowned finishing skills of Thai craftsmen. Yacht Solutions employs 120 experienced professionals and over 100 sub-contractors. Key company partners are award-winning UK architecture and design firms, BMT Nigel Gee and Design Unlimited, who ensure international standards are maintained while clients receive value for money due to the efficiencies of operating out of Thailand. Yacht Solutions is a founding member of the Asia Pacific Superyacht Association.
