Phuket International Marine Expo 2006

With just 30 days to go until the fourth Phuket International Marine Expo (PIMEX 2006) opens its doors at the Phuket Boat Lagoon Marina, from 7 10 December, Thailand's only international waterside boating and lifestyle show looks set to exceed expectations, according to Andy Dowden of PIMEX organisers, Image Asia.

December's PIMEX follows on from October's first-ever Bangkok Preview held at All Season's Place in the City's main business district. Demonstrating that boat shows are about more than just straightforward product sales, as a direct follow-on from their participation at PIMEX Preview, Land Rover Thailand and leading yacht sales brokers Max Marine Asia announced yesterday an exciting new partnership.

Max Marine Asia or Land Rover customers will be entitled to special discounted pricing on luxury Sunseeker charter boats in Phuket, while would-be Land Rover buyers will get the chance to sample one of the four models displayed at PIMEX. And, exclusive to PIMEX visitors, Max Marine and Land Rover will be offering an unbeatable boat-plus-vehicle package deal.

Among the new faces are Silkline Asia, builders and designers of the Silkline 510 Series of performance catamarans. Silkline also operate a chandlery and sourcing business in Phuket. Other newcomers in the air-conditioned halls include Powerlink, HBH Marine, Sunnav and Blue Lagoon Shipyards. In the property sector, Shinhome's new luxury development, Daalaburi and Baan Talay join regular exhibitors Raimon Land and SEA Property, both regular supporters of yachting in the region.

Bringing boats into the show for the first time are Dean Catamarans, NavAsia, Funsail and Mustang Cruisers joining PIMEX stalwarts such as Bavaria Yachts, Beneteau, Grand Banks, Horizon Yachts, Ferretti, Pershing, Riviera, Sunseeker, Azimuth and more.
