Singapore Yacht Show 2013, twice in size the 2012 edition
At already twice the size of the 2012 show, an increasing number of market leading companies have signed up to participate in the 2013 edition of the Singapore Yacht Show held at ONE°15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove between 18-21 April. Now in its third year, the show is achieving what it was always asked to deliver – an event with the vibrancy, quality and reputation of the world’s best marine shows, providing a genuinely meaningful marketing platform for the international industry in Singapore, the gateway to the Asian market.
Opening on 18 April for four full days this year, the show will welcome the award-winning, 57.5m sailing yacht Twizzle, designed by Dubois Naval Architects and built by Royal Huisman in Holland, who will make her international boat show debut at the Singapore Yacht Show. In addition, Aquariva by Gucci will be unveiled in Singapore for the first time through a collaboration with Officina Italian Design in a limited edition model customized by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini. The unique collaboration between two of Italy’s most renowned design houses celebrates the era of La Dolce Vita, when a joie de vivre, glamour and elegance defined an attitude and a lifestyle.
British builder Sunseeker will be exhibiting some of their world-leading range of production yachts for the first time at the event, including their 40m flagship motoryacht Tanvas, built especially for an Asian client in 2010, and a newly-launched 20m model. Another hugely popular British brand joining the lineup for the first time this year is Princess Yachts, part of LVMH’s luxury brand portfolio, who will be exhibiting no less than seven vessels.
They join other world-renowned builders such as Riva, Fairline, Grand Banks, Hanse Yachts, Sealine, Cranchi. In addition, the innovative Wider Yachts will have smaller boats on display for those looking to explore their coastline by day boat. In the superyacht spectrum, Palmer Johnson, Benetti, Royal Huisman, Westport, Kingship, Azimut, Aycer Yacht and Gulf Craft will all be represented, while leading local dealers and brokers such as Simpson Marine, Luxury Yachts, Premium Nautical and SG Boating will all be participating.
The Singapore Yacht Show has added a number of complementary lifestyle elements to the visitor experience. Private aircraft manufacturer Embraer joins the list of exhibitors in the Luxury Pavilion alongside BMW M-Cars and Lamborghini together with leading contemporary fine art galleries.
