W Asia has won the PR remit for Princess Yachts in Southeast Asia.

The PR firm is tasked with building Princess Yachts’ brand in the Southeast Asian luxury lifestyle markets, through a series of PR initiatives and partnerships.

Princess Yachts’ exclusive Asian dealership is owned by Boat Lagoon Yachting, the leading yachting company in Southeast Asia.

W Asia will manage the PR activity around Princess Yachts’ presence at the forthcoming Singapore Yacht Show. 

The win consolidates W’s relationship with Princess Yachts internationally, as the W London office has held the brand’s account for more than two years.

“We are very excited to be working with such a prestigious British brand in Southeast Asia,” said Annabel Fox, managing director of W Asia. “It is also the first lifestyle client that we will represent globally, giving Princess Yachts a wide reach across two continents.”

The win further bolsters W’s lifestyle division, which includes Bawah Island in Indonesia, CÉ LA VI, global dating app happn, and The Parallel Art Group.
