We are thrilled to announce the details for the first edition of the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit 2024, marking a significant step towards the development of the Asian superyacht market and the aspiration to draw more yachts to the region.

Taking place on the 5th and 6th of June 2024, the inaugural summit will be hosted in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, showcasing its potential as a prime destination for superyacht enthusiasts. The Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong has been chosen as the venue for this two-day event, where key decision-makers from diverse Asian regions and global professionals from the superyacht industry will engage in crucial discussions.

The primary focus of the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit will be on fostering the growth of Asia as a prominent superyacht cruising destination and exploring strategies to attract Asian clients to engage in the construction, purchase, and charter of yachts.

“In recent years, there has been a waning interest from the superyacht industry in the Asian market,” notes Merijn de Waard, Founder & Director. “With the global market experiencing a slowdown, the superyacht industry must refocus its attention, and there is still a tremendous opportunity in Asia, home to over 950 billionaires according to Forbes.”

This summit aligns with our successful organization of a similar event in the Middle East, the Gulf Superyacht Summit. Together, these events aim to enhance the visibility of yachts heading eastwards.

This year’s event is sponsored by Damen Yachting as the Event Partner, YachtEye as the Gold Sponsor, and Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association (APSA) as the Supporting Partner.

Nigel Beatty, Chairman of APSA and head of Yachtzoo in Japan and Asia, comments, “APSA is very pleased to hear about the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit, which will help promote the region as a destination for superyachts and contribute to further market growth. We at APSA will support the event and look forward to working closely with the organizing team to ensure the success of this event.”

This summit offers an excellent opportunity to participate in discussions and make a difference in the uncharted but exciting market of the Asia-Pacific region. Expand your network by engaging with influential individuals within the region.
