At the heart of the show was an impres-sive multi-billion baht line-up of power and sail boats for sale and charter with almost 30 global and local boat brands represented ranging from dinghies, trailer boats and speedboats to larger luxury boats and superyachts. The largest in the show was the MCY96 from Monte Carlo Yachts, which was displayed by Simpson Marine and made its first appearance in Asia.
“We had one of the best line-up of boats and brands at the show this year. Showcasing the diversity of boating in Thailand, visitors were able to see some of the biggest global brands from Italy, France, the UK and around the world, alongside high quality locally built boats. In addition to the boat displays, there were more than 60 exhibitors on shore ranging from the latest marine products, water toys and accessories to lifestyle, technology and luxury property,” said Mr. Scott Finsten, Harbour Master of Ocean Marina Yacht Club, organizers of the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show
Onshore visitors enjoyed displays from Thailand's leading coastal property developers as well as home products, gadgets and gizmos, the latest marine products and technologies, watersports and much more.
In addition to the exhibitor displays in-the-water and onshore, highlights this year includes the in-water Demo Platform, free yacht cruises for visitors, a Jet Surf competition, a kids area with bouncy castle and a number of pop-up restaurants creating an unrivalled waterfront dining experience. A beer garden with live en-tertainment daily made for the perfect meeting point and enjoyable atmosphere for all.

For boat-lovers we have it all from the smallest gadget to superyachts, while for new-comers to the yachting lifestyle there's plenty of opportunity to learn from the many experts at the show. For families we had kids’ activities, lots of booths and activities and come sundown the waterfront pop-ups will make Ocean Marina
