    This unique yachting extravaganza would showcase the latest yachts and boats to the growing class of Indonesian millionaires with massive dispensable income!

    The Global Wealth Report, by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, revealed that Indonesia’s total wealth increased by US$420 billion to $1.8 trillion from January 2010 to June 2011, and was among the top 20 highest contributors of wealth growth. Millionaires in Indonesia are also expected to increase from 112,000 in 2011 to 242,000 millionaires in 2016. (Source: The Jakarta Post, 21 Oct 2011).

Pantai Mutiara in Jakarta, which many of the rich reside, provides direct access to personal yachts and boats at their very own backyard and the “Yacht Friendly” initiatives by the Indonesian Government also helps to encourage more touring yachts to the country.
