MGC-Marine, a subsidiary of Master Group Corporation (Asia) Ltd., the sole authorized dealer of AZIMUT Yachts in Thailand, welcomed guest-of-honour H.E. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Minister of Tourism and Sports, and VIPs and celebrities to an exclusive SEA, SAND, SKY party at Canapaya Residences to officially mark the launch of the leading luxury yacht brand in the Kingdom.
The event, hosted by Dr. Sunhavut Thamchuanviriya, Group Managing Director of Master Group Corporation (Asia) Ltd., celebrated the company’s recent Bt.300 million purchase of AZIMUT yachts and the construction of the ‘AZIMUT Lounge’.
Commenting on the launch Dr. Sunhavut Thamchuanviriya said, “MGC-Marine is delighted to be partnering Azimut Benetti, the billion-euro luxury yacht manufacturer led by Dr. Giovanna Vitelli, the daughter of Azimut founder Paolo Vitelli. Azimut is a world leader in terms of the design and construction of luxury motor yachts and serves well-heeled discerning customers at over 130 sites worldwide. We are pleased to become one of those exclusive sites and we look forward to growing the Azimut brand in Thailand and contributing to the local economy and tourism sector.”
“Thailand is recognized internationally for its great potential in tourism, much of which centers on the richness of our natural maritime resources – our beautiful coastlines and islands, and our diversified flora and fauna. We are also well positioned with international-standard boatyards and marine services.
In addition, the government has set a policy to support Thailand as a hub for yachting in the region. This is why we have allocated a significant investment of Bt.300 million for the purchase of luxurious Azimut yachts and the construction of two ‘Azimut Lounges’, one in Pattaya, and the near future in Phuket. Azimut yachts range from 50-86 feet in length and start at Bt.50 million. Prices vary depending on the yacht’s size and specifications, but all come with a guarantee of exclusive luxury. Our first ‘Azimut Lounge’ officially debuted at Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Pattaya, and we are on schedule to launch the second lounge in Phuket shortly.”
A further highlight of the launch event at Canapaya Residences was 3 brand new elegant Azimut yachts. These were a big draw among guests and celebrities who enjoyed exclusive cruise parties and music provided by world-class DJs.
