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.

There is a good deal going on in Asia, and it was good to see so many APSA members at the Singapore Yachting Festival 2024, which was bigger and busier than last year, and saw the return of superyachts to the festival. APSA’s schedule continues to be busy with the ASMEX 2024 Conference (21-22 May) and the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) (23-26 May) and the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit (5-6 June) at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel, Hong Kong.
