THE 16TH AN­NUAL THREE-DAY IN­TER­NA­TIONAL ASIA SUPERYACHT REN­DEZVOUS (ASR) WAS HELD AT MAI KHAO BEACH ON PHUKET’S NORTH­WEST SHORE­LINE, and com­menced with wel­come cock­tails aboard the unique phin­isi-style sail­ing superyacht, Du­nia Baru.

Bring­ing to­gether dis­tin­guished guests com­pris­ing own­ers, cap­tains and crews, the event was hosted at the award-win­ning five-star Sala Phuket Re­sort and Spa. For the first time, ASR in­tro­duced a cup with the two days of Superyacht Rac­ing cul­mi­nat­ing in an Asia Superyacht Ren­dezvous Cup award.

This year’s par­tic­i­pat­ing su­pery­achts were Du­nia Baru, Vie San Soucis, Af­ter 8, Azul A, Tiara, Bliss, Aphrodite and Dallinghoo — the lat­ter a stun­ning full-keel top­sail gaff-rigged schooner com­bin­ing the clas­sic de­sign and ro­man­tic feel of a tall ship with all the com­forts of a mod­ern yacht.

Friendly but com­pet­i­tive sail­ing races high­lighted the event held from 16th to 18th De­cem­ber
