Singapore Yacht Show | Asia’s Number One Boat Show
The sounding of the horns of nearly 100 yachts and boats at 8pm on Sunday 15th April signalled the close of the most successful run of the Singapore Yacht Show (SYS) yet.
In its 8th edition, SYS welcomed over 15,000 visitors over the course of the four-day event at ONE˚15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove, all of whom were potential buyers and charterers hailing from all around Asia.
Andy Treadwell, CEO and Founder organisers of Singapore Yacht Events, explained, “Singapore is the geographical hub of an enormous region that is poised to become the third destination for the yachting and superyachting world, after the Mediterranean and Caribbean. The potential for a burgeoning yachting industry in a space stretching from Phuket to the Pacific is almost limitless. Asia has the cruising grounds and the scenery, and a whole rainbow of different cultures, that can be marketed to existing yacht owners as a new destination, and to potential yacht owners from Asia as a new lifestyle. All it takes to make it happen is support from the various regional governments.”
In addition to the yachts and superyachts on water, visitors were treated to a glamorous programme of yacht parties, networking events, gourmet food and jewellery stalls, pop-up bars and high-end entertainment. The Show was a sparkling affair which proved conclusively that yachting in Asia is on the rise and that SYS continues to be an unrivalled event in the region.
