Opening Asia To Superyachts

About Us

Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association (APSA) is the leading professional and regional yacht industry association for Asia; and the first ever cross-country association established in Asia.


  • We work to actively promote our members who are Asian yacht businesses and for worldwide yacht businesses that want to do business in Asia.
  • We promote the South, South East and Eastern Asia region to the global superyacht community as one of the world’s three main cruising regions.
  • This is achieved through collaborative promotional activities, sponsored social events and international yacht shows such as Monaco, Fort Lauderdale, Singapore and Thailand Yacht Show; and direct promotional activities year round to proactively connect our members with Captains and Owners.

This is our second newsletter in March, and increasingly members are taking full advantage the APSA news channel to get their news out to the global superyacht community. Again, we have a surplus of news (which is all on the APSA website) but the newsletter is restricted to a dozen stories; if your story is not in this newsletter, then it will be in the next in a couple of weeks’ time.

The APSA Grand Tour 2021, Season 2 will start in the South Pacific on Tuesday 13th April 2021 atn1700hrs HKT (GMT +8).  The panellists for the first webinar of Season 2 are Manoa Rey (Tahiti), David Jamieson (Fiji) and Katrina Matheson (Cook Islands).

The Cook Islands Yacht Squadron (CIYS), an incorporated society, was established in August, 2006 to further the recreational and competitive sailing objective of Maritime Cook Islands, the flag state administrator of the Cook Islands register for ships and yachts.

Asia-Pacific Boating (APB) is a leading source for news and features on luxury yachting, and marine environment and conservation in Asia-Pacific both in print and online.
