|Simpson Marine shines in Thailand|
As a vibrant 2011 season draws to a close in Thailand, Simpson Marine celebrates with the delivery of five Lagoon catamarans and launch parties for their new owners at the Royal Phuket Marina.
Simpson continued their 8-year history of active support for yachting in the Kingdom by sponsoring the superb Swan 42, which bore the Simpson Marine colours during the King's Cup Regatta, the country's most prominent sailing event held last December 3 to 10.
If that wasn't enough, a yacht owners Rendez Vous took place in the beautiful and pristine Andaman islands on December 16 to 17 which enabled Azimut and Lagoon owners to get together. These immensely popular events allow owners to share their yachting experiences and enjoy an amazing week-end break in convivial company.
Also the PIMEX Phuket Boat show is just coming over the horizon from March 29 to April 1, where Simpson Marine will feature the latest yachts on offer from Azimut, Beneteau and Lagoon.
Mike Simpson, Managing Director and Founder of Simpson Marine, commented "with its many islands and outstanding coastal scenery, Thailand offers some of the best cruising in Asia and the development of world-class marinas in Phuket and Pattaya now provides the necessary shore facilities to encourage more owners to come and visit from other parts of Asia. Simpson Marine provides service support and gardiennage, meaning owners of yachts sold by Simpson Marine anywhere in Asia can cruise and leave their yachts in Thailand under our management. We, at Simpson Marine, have been promoting this destination and will continue to do so given the substantial potential for yachting and yacht chartering". Simpson Marine is offering yacht buyers in Thailand the whole range of Azimut models as well as Beneteau sailing yachts and Lagoon catamarans. It caters to all needs, from performance driven customers to the more family oriented. It also provides yacht charter opportunities in some of the world's most beautiful waters. The company now has offices in Phuket and Pattaya with yacht brokers as well as all-important service teams in the two locations.

The Phuket Simpson Marine team recently held a launching ceremony of the new Lagoon 560 at the Royal Villa private dock in Royal Phuket Marina. The ceremony began with a christening of the catamaran; fittingly French Champagne for a French boat. It was then followed by a Buddhist blessing ceremony and the traditional firecrackers. This was a nice opportunity for the proud owner to show his new purchase to his family and friends. Simpson Marine as the Lagoon catamaran dealer in the region was also proud to present the first Lagoon 560 to reach Southeast Asia.
