“The luxury cruise boat Sumpaothong had a starting bid of B4 million, but it sold for B12.9 million. It was the top priced purchase of the auction,” said Theppasu BavornChotidara, Director of Amlo’s Financial Intelligence Division

“The second highest purchase was for the vessel Sumpaothong 1 which had a starting bid of B12 million and sold for B12.1 million,” he added.

Reporting on the overall amount taken at the auction, Mr Theppasu said, “Over all three days the action took a total of B166,944,000. B71,104,000 was taken on the first day, B37,300,000 on the second, and B58,540,000 on the third and final day.

“Overall, all 34 boats were sold along with 83 buses, however, there are 33 buses that remain unsold. Those buses will be auctioned at a later date which will be set by our office,” he added.
