Sunreef Yachts is returning again this year with the custom Sunreef 62 Anette 2. This year together with the Sunreef Supreme 68 Eagle Wings, the premiere of the custom Sunreef 62 will also take place with a special VIP guest.
Azimut Singapore will return with a central location in the marina to display a range of yachts from 43ft to 95ft.
Benetti Yachts will be showcasing the superyacht Ambrosia. At 65m in length, she is as long as the wingspan of a 747 jet.
Visitors will have the opportunity to be one of the first to step onboard the 46m tri-deck catamaran Charley, making her world premiere at the Show.

Film buffs will recognise the 41m M/Y Ocean Emerald, designed by Norman Foster, from the cult film, Point Break. The Princess 32’s main saloon, featuring vast windows on each side, showcases spectacular views of the sea that contrast the rich dark colour palate used in the interiors.
Water toys to be exhibited at the show will be from Triton Submarines, U-Boat Worx, Funair and Marine Commerce with their DeepTrekker ROV.
The on-water Demo Platform will enable experience with a large range of fun toys and yacht accessories. This year’s activities will include FlyBoard demonstrations, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking.
SYS 2017 will also welcome the Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley car owner clubs for the Supercar Parade on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Other leisure highlights at this year’s Show will include The Lawn, a vibrant pop-up lounge which will feature one bar pouring Pimm’s cocktails, and a second bar pouring Tanqueray cocktails to keep you refreshed. ONE°15’s Boater’s Bar will be transformed into a Lanson Champagne Lounge. And visitors will also be able to try out The Singleton Sensorium’s virtual reality experience in the Show’s new Whisky Bar.
