We are thrilled to announce that Dunia Baru will be taking part in – and hosting the opening cocktail reception for – the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, which will be held in Phuket from 16 to 18 December this year. This is the first time that Dunia Baru will be involved, and we are really excited to be a part of an event that celebrates yachting in this beautiful part of the world.
So often South-East Asia is overlooked as a destination for yachting, which is surprising considering the exceptional natural beauty of the region’s archipelagos. From the phenomenal marine diversity and dramatic landscape of Raja Ampat in the far east of Indonesia, to the wonderful sense of peace and isolation in Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago, there is so much to experience. Events like Asia Superyacht Rendezvous help give the Asian yachting and charter market a good boost by bringing all it offers to the attention of brokers and the yachting community at large.
“For me as a superyacht owner, there are few cruising grounds in the world as beautiful as those in South East Asia,” says Dunia Baru’s owner, Mark Robba. “Every day is an adventure and an opportunity to escape and experience something new. I’m glad we can join the other yachts, owners, VIP guests and crew at the Rendezvous in its celebration of yachting in this region before we make our way to Myanmar for some new adventures and charter.”
The Rendezvous is one of the largest gatherings of sailing and motoryachts in the region, bringing together Asia’s large yachting community for three days of friendly competition, socialising and celebration of these beautiful cruising grounds.
“As the organisers of the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, we are very excited that Dunia Baru has agreed to be the host yacht for this year’s opening cocktail party,” says Gordon Fernandes, one of the event’s longtime organisers alongside Captain Charlie Dwyer. “All phinisi yachts offer guests an unrivalled experience due to the charm of their traditional build, but Dunia Baru takes this to the next level. We’re very happy the invited guests will have the chance to view Dunia Baru in all of her glory while at anchor outside Rendezvous host hotel – SALA Resort & Spa Phuket.”
The opening party will be a precursor to the start of the following morning’s superyacht sailing races, which will be on a course marked by participating motoryachts. Following the Rendezvous, Dunia Baru will make her way to the stunning cruising grounds of Myanmar, where she will be available for charter through 37 South.
Dunia Baru is available for charter in Myanmar
from December 2016 to March 2017. For more
