Full house for Blue List Expedition in Phuket


The Zeavola Resort and the Phi Phi Islands play host to the second edition of the three-day event, which features 100 guests, 14 yachts and a packed calendar of watersports, beach barbecues and parties.


The 106ft charter yacht Demarest is the flagship of this year’s Blue List fleet

This year’s Blue List Expedition is sold out, with 100 people attending the second edition of the three-day, two-night escapade, which will be held from December 18-20. The first edition was held in Koh Lanta in April 2017 and was a forerunner to the first Phuket RendezVous in January 2018.

This year’s event starts with a bubbly brunch sponsored by Royal Phuket Marina, the event’s starting and finishing point. Yachts and guests will cruise to Zeavola Resort in the Phi Phi Islands, where they will spend two nights. The event is organised by JAND Events and supported by Yacht Sourcing.

Built of wood in Thailand, the 90ft Maha Bhetra was designed by the late Ed Tuttle

“We are now 100 per cent full,” said Nicolas Monges, Partner and Managing Director of Yacht Sourcing Thailand. “We have 14 yachts signed up and 100 guests, which is our capacity.

The 106ft Demarest – whose charter guests have included John Legend and Chrissy Teigen – is the biggest yacht in the event and was designed by long-time Azimut designer Stefano Righini and built by Falcon in Italy.

The Princess Y75 Sanook is among Blue List’s stylish fleet
