Chairman's Message 22 September 2021

It is a great shame that the APSA 10th Anniversary Superyacht Night event was not able not able to happen this year, but hopefully 2022 will be different.  Two of the Committee Members will be at the Monaco Yacht Show (22-25 September) this year, and if you would like to catch up with either Gordon Fernandes or myself please contact us via APSA Executive Director, Suzy Rayment on and she will relay any messages.

I am aware that a number of our APSA members will be at the MYS and they include: Maritime Cook Islands/Cook Islands Yacht Squadron, Tahiti Tourisme, Hill Dickinson, HFW, Benetti Yachts, OCEA Yachts, Super Yacht Logistics, YACHTZOO, Azure Yacht Crew Health, Brookes Bell, Burgess, Fraser,  Rosemont International, Sevenstar Yacht Transportation, M-Yachts,, Northrop & Johnson, SYBAss, Superyacht UK, The Superyacht Life Foundation, Water Revolution Foundation, The World of Yachts, YACHTNEEDS, and Yachtstyle.  We hope to meet as many members as possible but given the social distancing measures in place it may be difficult to catch up personally with everyone. APSA can assist you in networking with any of these APSA members, and again you can contact Suzy and she will try to get the connections happening (Suzy in based in HK so please remember the time differences (GMT+8)

In the meantime, we continue to celebrate APSA first 10 years, and there will be a bit of a splash on that topic later this week. If you have any good tales, photos or reminiscences please do share them with us and they can be added to the APSA History that is being collated.

APSA has achieved a lot over these last 10 years, but we need to continue our engagement with the superyacht community, and remind them that there is so much more to the Asia-Pacific cruising grounds than they ever imagined.  Gordon and I will be here flying the APSA flag and we plan to give you some first-hand sound bites from this year’s show… stay tuned on the APSA social media channels to see APSA live at the MYS.

Stay safe!
