The International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) has confirmed the Thai Yachting Business Association (TYBA) as a full member. TYBA organised the inaugural Thailand Charter Week last November.
Founded in 1966, ICOMIA is the international trade association representing the global marine industry. ICOMIA brings together marine industry associations from across the world in one global organisation and represents them at international level, presenting a strong and united voice when dealing with issues challenging the industry.
The Thai Yachting Business Association, formerly the Thai Marine Business Association, was founded in 2014 and is a non-profit marine leisure industry association serving yacht builders, yacht charter operators and brokers, yacht sales brokerage and dealerships, marinas, yacht repairs and refit, yacht management and other yachting-related companies throughout Thailand.
The primary objective of the TYBA is to promote Thailand to the global yachting community and introduce its cruising grounds from the Gulf of Siam to the Andaman Sea, network of top-class marinas, and quality refit and marine services.
“TYBA is honoured to joining ICOMIA and looking forward to expanding the superyacht and charter horizons in Thailand with ICOMIA’s support,” TYBA stated.
