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.

Objectives:

  • 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.
