Phuket has long been considered one of Asia’s most popular Yachting and Marina destinations. There are also many other areas around Thailand where ocean activities are popular with investors and tourists alike and now Azimut-Benetti, the renowned Italian luxury Yacht brand, has decided to come on board to join in on the fun.
Due to increased interest in maritime activities in the coastal regions of Thailand, special benefits have been given to yacht enthusiasts in recent years. In 2004, import taxes for yachts and other types of boats were revoked in an attempt to give investors an incentive to build marinas and waterside residences. Since then the government has been extremely supportive with a large variety of water travel ventures within the Thai tourism industry.
Azimut-Benetti obviously saw the many benefits of bringing their services to the land of Smiles. Using MGC (Asia) as its sole distributor of yachts in Thailand, Azimut-Benetti’s aim is to spread joy across the seas. MGC (Asia) is also the distributor of such reputable brands as BMW, Rolls Royce and Aston Martin, so Azimut-Benetti is sure to be in good hands.
Azimut-Benetti has a long history in the nautical industry so its reputation is sure to grab the attention of sailing enthusiasts across the country, especially in Phuket. Since 1969 Azimut-Benetti has been providing top quality vessels to 68 countries across the globe. The company’s models have won many awards in recent years, including the 2014 Motor Boat Awards and the 2013 Asia Boating Awards. With such a rich history behind them, Azimut-Benetti is sure to thrive in Thailand.
