(Phuket, 4 January) – In celebration of YACHT STYLE’s 10th anniversary, the inaugural CHRISTOFLE YACHT STYLE Awards 2018, presented at Phuket Boat Lagoon on the first night of Phuket RendezVous (4-7 January, at next door Royal Phuket Marina), is an exciting step forward for the Asia-Pacific boating industry.

Industry trend-setter YACHT STYLE successfully launched the premier 2018 CHRISTOFLE YACHT STYLE Awards recognising the best of the yachting industry in Asia and internationally, and reconfirming Phuket as an epicentre of the regional yachting scene.

The CHRISTOFLE YACHT STYLE Awards ceremony was held during a lavish gala dinner hosted by Phuket Boat Lagoon on the first evening of PHUKET RENDEZVOUS 2018 – gathering a fine audience of close to 300 VIPs, yacht owners and key personalities in the yachting industry.

“Our idea is to take a fresh approach to the way such accolades were presented in the past, and to seek out truly innovative ways in which owners can choose to go down to the sea in sailboats or motor yachts”, YACHT STYLE’s CEO & Publisher Gael Burlot told the star-studded gathering.

“Congratulations to this year’s Awards winners and nominees in the 25 categories. They are helping to power the rapidly-increasing interest in boating in Asia-Pacific waters, and many others will be recognised for their valuable efforts in the years ahead”.

YACHT STYLE Associate Editor Bruce Maxwell, who has been a judge in prior Asian, European and American boating awards, co-ordinated the new-look formula. “I hope the dossiers compiled, and owners and experienced reviewers consulted, will provide an enhanced level of credibility to this Christofle event”, he said.

Christofle Yacht Style Awards were designed to showcase excellence and creative flair in the latest motor and sailing yacht models presented in the Asia-Pacific region by leading builders here and beyond. Innovation across the industry was specifically encouraged. Recipients receive Christofle Yacht Style citations marking their achievements which led to the Award.

Christofle, closely associated with yachting in Asia since 2005, embodies French Art de Vivre and elegance thanks to its creations in silver. From tableware to home decoration and exceptional jewellery pieces, Christofle remains loyal first and foremost to the spirit of its founders, who cherished modernity and innovation in creation and production.
