A two-day industry conference and the Asia Boating Awards on Wednesday evening, April 5, will precede the four-day Show.
Organiser Andy Treadwell believes the Singapore Yacht Show has now established itself as Southeast Asia’s leading show, with the Hong Kong-owned Ambrosia (65m/213ft) by Benetti among many highlights for visitors. Another highlight is M/Y Ocean Emerald, designed by Norman Foster and recently featured in the remake of the cult film Point Break.
“We are very proud of what we have achieved in just seven years. We’re thrilled that so many of the industry’s most important players have identified SYS as the most effective platform from which to present their products to the Asian market,” said Treadwell, Managing Director of Singapore Yacht Show and Thailand Yacht Show.
