KATA ROCKS SUPERYACHT RENDEZVOUS WRAP UP

Northrop & Johnson Southeast Asia (SEA) participated in the extremely successful Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous, December 6 to 9. This lavish boating extravaganza is held annually on the west coast of Phuket, Thailand, and it coincides with the famed King Cup Sailing Regatta, which starts the Phuket cruising season.

Northrop & Johnson was delighted to take part in the event with the proud new owners of XANADU of LONDON, which was sold by Northrop & Johnson SEA, who graciously allowed distinguished guests of Northrop & Johnson, Thai celebrities and media to join them on a private cruising brunch, which was set to follow the yachts racing in the Kings Cup Sailing regatta. While the wind did not blow in for the regatta — postponing the racing — guests were entertained by pianist Victor on board who played beautifully on the yacht’s newly installed baby grand piano.

The Thai chef and attentive crewmembers staff served Louis Roederer Champagne, oysters flown in from France and Andaman sea prawns. All on board were treated to a very relaxed and opulent occasion.

The success of the Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous, signals the strength and style of Northrop & Johnson SEA. The event also was a celebration of the second 30-meter-plus yacht sold by the team in six months.

Northrop & Johnson SEA anticipates this trend to continue as new owners and charter clients are
enjoying life on board with the team’s dedicated management.

Plans already are in the works for a bigger, better event next year.
