Jan Maarten Boissevain, Sales Director Sevenstar globally, says: “Sevenstar is a long-time supporter of yachting in Asia by opening and guaranteeing yacht shipping routes and sailings. Although Asia is not an easy market, we are happy to notice a slow but steady development in the region and we are learning together with our clients. “Dialogue” is key for us in doing business. That is why we like to be instrumental in the exchange of ideas and cooperation in the Region, a perfect reason for us to sponsor the Asia Pacific Yachting Conference.

Peter Staalsmid, Area Sales Manager, will be presenting a session on patterns of yacht migration, influencing factors and will include a case study of how governments and the marine industry can work together to create favorable conditions for developing and promoting new yachting destinations.

Martin Redmayne of the Superyacht Group is chairperson and the Conference is looking into interactive and constructive work forms to bringing true value and exchange of ideas. All from the perspective of what we can learn from each other, how things can work and what needs to be done.

“Much is happening in Asia, both in the development of the internal Asian market, as well superyachts elsewhere considering the Asia Pacific as a future destination”, comments Marieke Derks, Sevenstar Thailand and Malaysia. “There is so such beauty and variety of experiences to offer. Destination marketing, sustainable tourism growth and favorable regulations are key for building the market. We need to be inclusive to make it work and I fully endorse APYC’s focus on facilitating cooperation between industry and government stakeholders.”
