2014 Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show - Thailand's largest showcase of marine and luxury lifestyle opened yesterday in Pattaya with 105 businesses and products exhibiting in 14,000 sqm of space at the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show. Running from 27th to 30th November at the largest marina in South East Asia, Ocean Marina, record numbers turned out for the first day to enjoy the displays and activities at the third annual Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show.


The USD40 million line-up of luxury sail and power boats in the water ranges from small day trip boats to those for extended cruising and the largest in the Show, the 115-foot superyacht Phatsara. Attracting a lot of attention on the first day was the world's first solar-assisted luxury catamaran, the Heliotrope 65. Designed in Thailand and built at the Bakri Cono Shipyard in Ocean Marina, the Heliotrope team were busy fielding enquiries from visitors and media alike today.

Many of the world's top boat brands are on display and represented at the Show, including Princess Yachts, Azimut Yachts, Cranchi, Beneteau, CNB Yachts, Lagoon Catamarans, Monte Carlo Yachts, Carver Yachts, Century Boats, Boston Whaler and more.

Onshore, the top yachting brands are joined by leading auto marques Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, Porsche and Ducati while elsewhere in the Show visitors can enjoy everything from boat accessories, services and insurance, to charter, water sports, marine toys and gadgets, luxury real estate, fashion and jewellery.


'Now in it's third year, the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show has grown to become Thailand's largest exhibition of marine and lifestyle. The number of exhibitors this year has increased and the quality is the best yet. The depth and diversity of exhibitors shows that Thailand's marine and lifestyle sector is robust and has a bright future,' said Mrs. Supatra Angkawinijwong, Deputy Managing Director of Ocean Property, the organisers.

Extended this year to be held over four days, organisers introduced the Boat & Yacht Thailand 2014 Conference on 28th November – a first of its kind in Thailand – and with the theme of 'Green Boating' as well as the two-day International Fishing Boat Competition held 29th and 30th November.

Highlights for visitors include free yacht cruises, luxury car test drives, kayak and paddle boat experiences, an open-air drinks and food festival with live band, jetpack flying board and radio control power boat demonstrations, games and much more.

The Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show is open Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th November from 11:00 to 19:00, and from 11:00 to 18:00 on Sunday 30th November. Entry is free.
