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.

As everyone in the yacht industry now knows, yacht insurance has changed dramatically from where it was 18 months ago.

It’s difficult to keep track of the changes on the charter scene, but Burgess has compiled a summary of the different regulations affecting charter destinations around the world
