16th Annual Asia Superyacht Rendezvous
Dunia Baru to attend Asia Superyacht Rendezvous and host opening party
Indonesian charter yacht S/Y Dunia Baru will be taking part in the annual Asia Superyacht Rendezvous for the first time this year and to help kick off the 16th annual edition of this highly anticipated event, the 51m phinisi style sailing yacht will also be hosting the opening cocktail reception. Running from 16 to 18 December in Phuket, the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous is one of the largest gatherings of sailing and motor yachts in the region, bringing together Asia’s large yachting community for three days of friendly competition, socialising and celebration of these beautiful cruising grounds.
“We are thrilled to be taking part in the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous for the first time this year and to be hosting the opening cocktail party on board Dunia Baru,” says the yacht’s owner, Mark Robba. “For me as a superyacht owner, there are few cruising grounds in the world as beautiful as those in South East Asia. 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.”
With a lively three-day schedule of racing and relaxed social events, this year’s Rendezvous will be hosted at the international award-winning SALA Phuket Resort and Spa, a five-star resort situated on beautiful Mai Khao Beach. Highlights over the three days will include the opening cocktail party on board Dunia Baru – a chance for guests to experience the yacht’s renowned hospitality, the famed ‘Rendezvous Challenge’ of model boat building and races, the ‘Pirate’s Booty’ treasure hunt and a lavish VIP Gala Dinner on the final evening.
“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 motor yachts. 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 a 51m Phinisi-style superyacht, which can accommodate up to 14 guests in one master cabin and six spacious and well-appointed guest suites. Painstakingly handcrafted from teak and ironwood over eight years by traditional Indonesian shipwrights, Dunia Baru is a superyacht with soul, built to international standards, that takes guests to some of the most remote and beautiful archipelagos on earth.
Dunia Baru is available for charter in Myanmar December to March through 37 South from US$94,500 per week plus tax, port fees, cruising permit and visa. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with enquiries.
