From 7-10 April, ONE° 15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove is hosting the premiere of some of the world’s most prestigious yachts for the sixth edition of Singapore Yacht Show. International power brands, such as Sunreef and Princess Yachts, unveil their luxurious yachts for the first time in Asia, displaying quality craftsmanship, precise engineering and, not to mention, refined elegance in interior styling.
The 21m (68ft) sailing catamaran, Sunreef Supreme 68, is however not the only shining star of the show. As hard as it is to compete with the superyacht that boasts luxuriously furnished cabins, vast lounging space, and a breathtaking front terrace with large sun pads and Jacuzzi, international yacht brokerage company, Fraser Yachts, up the ante by showcasing no less than three captivating superyachts. Marine lifestyle enthusiasts and boat cognoscenti can indulge in the beauty of the 50m Sensation which features five well-appointed staterooms that provide ample accommodation for up to 12 guests or marvel at the impressive 43m Triple 8 and 34m Azul A from this stellar line-up.
Singapore Yacht Show provides just as many entertainments on land as well as on board, in case visitors get weary from the yacht parties at the scenic sun decks and mesmerizing terraces. Visitors can watch on-water demonstrations of a range of water toys. Long standing exhibitor, Supratechnic, is spoiling visitors with a great array of Jet Skis, amphibious vehicles and outboard engines. U-Boat Worx also returns with its C-Explorer 3 personal submarine that can carry passengers to a depth of 1,000 m, all while being pampered in a full air-conditioned interior and a 360-degree undersea view.
The extravaganza doesn’t quite end there. Visitors can participate in a free yoga class on the Esplanade, tune in for a public cookery demonstration dockside at ONE° 15 Marina Club by Masterchef Asia Judge Audra Morrice or watch parades of supercars from Lamborghini and Ferrari.
Looking at the caliber of brands and dealers presenting at the show, Singapore Yacht Show seems to be set for another success this year. Speaking at the press conference, Managing Director of The Singapore Yacht Show, Andy Treadwell, is expecting 10,000-15,000 visitors. But, Treadwell is not quite satisfied with the number yet. He’s still looking to attract more visitors and potential buyers from Malaysia, Indonesia, and other neighboring countries. He added that although the market right now is slowing down, it’s still optimistic.
