Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia has appointed Thomas Taacjes as its new operations manager. Taacjes is familiar with the region having sailed there with his parents as a child.

“After finishing a refit job in Thailand as well as some captaining and crewing roles, this felt like the next challenge for me to take on”, Taatjes said. “I am just thrilled to be in Indonesia and part of the dynamic team that makes cruising such a huge archipelago possible. It is very exciting times for us.”

APS Indonesia was the first superyacht support agency in Indonesia and, over a period of six years, has brought more than 220 yachts to Indonesia; a number that is growing fast. “We are thrilled to have Thomas on board.” says APS GM Richard Lofthouse.

“On any given day we have works going on in five or six islands spread over an area bigger than North America so having a big and strong team is key to keeping our levels of coverage and support high.”

Indonesia has the largest archipelago in the world with more than 17,500 visit. Asia Pacific Superyachts specialises in the service and care of the largest  yachts arriving and cruising in Asia Pacific waters.
