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.

The inaugural  Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit is taking place in Hong Kong on the 5 and 6 of June, at the Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel. The summit aims to develop the Asian superyacht market in a bid to attract more yachts to the region. The two-day event will include a Networking Dinner on the first evening of the event, where attendees can network with colleagues from across the industry.

ASPS is looking forward to meeting members at the Singapore Yachting Festival (25-28 April), and the inaugural ICOMIA Boating Industry Conference (22-23 April) being held at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa, Singapore. With over 70 yachts on display, including several superyachts, there is plenty to engage both industry professionals and visitors alike. APSA is a Supporting Partner for the SYF, and APSA Committee member Alex Teji, (APSA Honorary Legal Counsel) will be attending the Festival, along with APSA Executive Director, Suzy Rayment. If you attending the conference or the SYF, we look forward to seeing you there.

Insurance is a necessary evil. A broker is offering an owner a product that both he and the owner hopes will never have to be used. Many believe that the likelihood of having a claim is very slim and therefore feel that there is little point in spending money on insurance. While it is true to say that claims are relatively rare, they do happen and when they do, they are complex and expensive, often leading to a significant amount of downtime for a yacht.

Just a week to go to the Singapore Yachting Festival (SYF), and this key event is a ‘must do’ on the Asian boating calendar. Organised by ONE°15 Events Management, in collaboration with SG Marine Guide helmed by Wade Pearce, the SYF brings together leading brands, yacht buyers and HNWI’s who are considering a yachting lifestyle.
