Asia’s premier boating and luxury lifestyle showcase, the Singapore Yacht Show, returns to ONE°15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove from April 10-13 2014.
Amid a glamorous round of elite parties and high-end entertaining, the world’s leading yacht and boat builders, as well as many major luxury brands, are converging on the region’s equivalent to the Monaco Yacht Show in Europe and the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in the United States.
As well as latest superyachts and sports cruisers, this year’s event also launches a separate expo of supercars and classic cars – with the line-up of prestige brands extending to fine art, specialist timepieces and hand-crafted jewelry, premium wines & spirits and luxurious waterside properties.
“In Southeast Asia’s most vibrant and exciting city, this exclusive event truly epitomises luxury lifestyle, showcasing some of the world's best-known brands and ultimate experiences,” said Andy Treadwell, managing director of organiser Singapore Yacht Events.
The Singapore Yacht Show has practically doubled in size at each edition since being launched four years ago, and this year’s event is “shaping up to be the best yet”, he said, with more than a hundred luxury brands including around 100 world-class boats – including over 20 superyachts, some measuring up to 70 metres (230ft).
Organisers expect a new record in visitor numbers, exceeding the 11,000 who registered last year, to the boardwalks of Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove – complete with lively bars, restaurants and the cool W Singapore hotel. Entertainment has this year been extended to private VIP dinners, fashion shows, live entertainment and DJs.
Headlining the boat line-up are the breathtaking, award-winning S/Y Vertigo - at 70m, one of the world’s most celebrated sailing superyachts; the contemporary 50m explorer M/Y Exuma; and the elegant 60m cruiser M/Y Cloud 9.
More and more of the industry's biggest players are attending, with world famous brands exhibiting for the first time including Alloy Yachts, Lürssen, Edmiston & Company, Fraser Yachts, Perini Navi/Picchiotti, Philippe Briand, Porto Montenegro, Rossinavi Yachts, Sunreef Yachts, Y.CO and Yacht Zoo.
The show’s dramatic growth reflects Singapore’s unique position as a genuine, first-class regional hub, and it's ranking as the third-highest city in the world for resident multi-millionaires at the epicenter of Asian wealth management.
Single day admission tickets to the Singapore Yacht Show are priced at SG$50 with multi-day passes for SG$80.
