Sunsail, the world’s largest yacht charter and flotilla holiday company, was delighted to accept the award for ‘Best Asia-Based Charter Company’ at the Asia Boating Awards 2009 recently held in Shanghai.

Widely known as the region's premier event, the Awards recognize the efforts of boat builders, marinas, clubs and individuals in creating a diverse and exciting boating community in the region.

Judges chose the winners from a short list of nominees drafted by Asia-Pacific Boating reader votes. Sunsail's commitment to the region, selection of bareboat options, training options and brand building were all cited as reasons for its selection as Best Asia-Based Charter Company.

During the event, Olivier Burlot, publisher of Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines, told the audience:

"The Asia Boating Awards are unique in that they recognize the efforts being made in this part of the world to develop the leisure marine industry, and to create a new and exciting cruising ground for the world's yachtsmen."

Lex Raas, Sunsail’s President and Chief Executive Officer further commented:

"Sunsail pioneered the charter industry in this region, with our first base established in Thailand in 1991. This stunning cruising area offers an amazing diversity of landscapes, there are incredible rainforests, mountains, beaches and rivers to explore. Sunsail is proud to offer sailors such unique destinations in our worldwide vacation offerings."
