Phuket, 10 January 2019: Café Del Mar Phuket hosted leading luxury yacht brands from around the world for Chapter One of the innovative two-part Christofle Yacht Style Awards 2019 on Wednesday evening (9 January), underlining Phuket’s role as a hub of the Asian yachting scene.
Many of Asia’s leading luxury yachting companies and the world’s top shipyards were among the 15 winners to lift an iconic Mood trophy by title sponsor Christofle at Café Del Mar Phuket, which provided a glamorous setting on Kamala Beach. Over 350 VIPs including yacht owners and key figures in the industry attended the spectacular evening, which included a fire show. Chapter Two in Singapore in April will feature another 15 categories.
Among the 15 winners of 15 categories, Yacht Sourcing came out as a Winner for the Best Asia-based Charter Company (phinisi). The Iconic Mood trophy was accepted by both of our founders, Xavier Fabre and Boumedinne Senous, who attends the Gala, as well as the Thailand Yacht Show, the following day.
“It is such a great honour to receive an award from an establishment like The Yacht Style. It means that our hard work bringing Indonesia’s pride -the Phinisi yachts- as a luxury means of exploration to Indonesia’s Eastern Island, has not been overlooked.” Quoted from Boumedienne Senous, acted as the Director of Operations.
Christofle, closely associated with yachting in Asia since 2005, embodies French Art de Vivre and elegance through its creations in silver, including Mood, the iconic egg-shaped cutlery holder that’s one of the most distinctive trophies in yachting. From tableware to home decoration and exceptional jewelry pieces, Christofle remains loyal to the spirit of its founders who cherished modernity and innovation in creation and production – all values celebrated in the Christofle Yacht Style Awards.
