The sixth edition of Southeast Asia’s premier yachting event will host thousands of yacht enthusiasts and potential buyers to view over 100 boats, yachts and superyachts.
Exhibitors include local players Azimut Singapore, Hong Seh, Northrop & Johnson Asia, SG Boating, Supratechnic and Grand Banks, as well as international leaders Gulf Craft, Sunseeker, Sanlorenzo and Sunreef.
World-renowned yacht builder Amels is returning, following its highly successful debut at the show last year. The Dutch shipyard will display its stunning 55m M/Y La Familia.
The growing list of boats on display at the show has received a 50m boost as Fraser Yachts M/Y Sensation to its already impressive on-water fleet.
Benetti returns to the Lion City with one of its most revered yachts of the last few years, Lady Candy, a majestic 56m based in Hong Kong.
Hong Seh’s Ferretti Group will showcase its main brand Ferretti Yachts and brands Riva and Pershing, along with Cranchi, which will have an Asian premier of the Eco-Trawler 43 Long Distance, as well as new brand acquisition Boston Whaler.
Ever-present at SYS for each and every edition since it launched in 2011, Simpson Marine will present a wide range of vessels from its prestigious portfolio this year. There is something for everyone with the Asian Premiere of the Sanlorenzo 104, two Monte Carlo Yachts (MCY86 and MCY65) plus a Monte Carlo 4, three Lagoon Catamarans (Lagoon 630 Motor Yacht, 560 Imagine and 450 SporTop), and a Beneteau Oceanis 38.
Superyacht toys and accessories never fail to excite and delight serious buyers and gadget enthusiasts alike. This year will see new exhibits and returning favourites on display from Funair, Seabob, Quadrofoil, and U-Boat Worx, as well as SYS’ first-ever on-water demonstration platform.
US-based gyro stabiliser manufacturer Seakeeper will also showcase a range of products, as well as offering a free demo ride aboard Zycraft’s 17m Long Range Vessel.
The Singapore Yacht Show will, as always, provide a first-class platform for regional guests to meet yachting professionals, boat owners, supercar aficionados and a select group of invited participants keen to explore the luxury yachting scene.
This year’s events include the highly anticipated Gala Dinner, a series of supercar parades, fashion shows and live cooking demonstrations by MasterChef Asia Judge Audra Morris.
The prestigious Asia Boating Awards will also be held on April 7th during this year’s show. The event, held at ONE°15 Marina Club, will honour the best in Asian and international yachting and feature a select group of HNWIs, VIPs and key personalities of the yachting industry.
