Following hot on the heels of a highly successful 2014 edition of the Singapore Yacht Show, the organisers have received a flurry of high-profile repeat bookings for next year’s event, which will be held 23 to 26 April 2015.
From superyacht builders and yachting lifestyle accessories to brokers and dealers of superyachts, multihulls, day cruisers and sportfishers, a wide variety of companies have already committed to returning again in 2015.
Bookings have been coming in from all over the world, including: Alloy Yachts, AXA Insurance Singapore, Axis Group Yacht Design, Funair, Kingship, Luxury Yachts, MarkAgain, Premium Nautical, Princess Yachts, Reel Torque, Rossinavi, SG Boating, Simpson Marine, Sunbrella and Sunseeker, with many more key players due to sign up in the coming weeks.
"It's really gratifying to see so much enthusiasm for this show from some of the biggest brands in the world, and so much anticipation for next year's event, which will be bigger and better again," said Andy Treadwell, MD of show organisers Singapore Yacht Events. "There have been some big sales in the region both during and after the Show. Asia is on a roll, and the whole industry is waking up to the future potential here.”
One of Asia’s most prolific yacht dealers and brokerage experts, with offices in 12 locations across the continent, Simpson Marine is again returning to exhibit a whole fleet of vessels at the Show in 2015. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the company announced its position as the official dealer of Monte Carlo Yachts in Asia at this year’s Singapore Yacht Show. Simpson Marine is also a regional dealer for Azimut, Beneteau, CNB Yachts and Lagoon.
Princess Yachts SEA will be displaying a range of British-built Princess superyachts at the Show’s 2015 edition. As well as sales of new vessels, the company works in the pre-owned market, charter and yacht management in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
SG Boating, one of Singapore’s premier yacht dealerships, will once again be participating in the Show for its fifth edition. The company offers a wide range of options on the water as it is the exclusive representative for Fairline, Chaparral, Robalo Boats, Meridian, Pursuit and Explorer Motor Yachts. With a particularly strong focus on after-sales care, the company also offers brokerage services and frequently organises rendezvous rallies for its clients.
A long established dealer in South East Asia, Luxury Yachts is the exclusive regional dealer for Marquis Yachts, as well as a dealer for Sanlorenzo and Dominator yachts, among others. On top of working with the above brands, Luxury Yachts offers yacht management, maintenance and brokerage services.
Alloy Yachts will be returning next year, its team having been delighted with their first appearance in 2014, co-presenting the largest superyacht at the Show, 67.2m S/Y Vertigo. The New Zealand-based builder of sailing yachts and motoryachts added to its collection of industry awards in recent months, as 39.2m M/Y CaryAli took home trophies for the ShowBoats Design Award for Best Exterior Design and Styling (Displacement Motor Yacht 30-59.99m) and the World Superyacht Award for Best Displacement Motoryacht (Below 500GT).
Having also made its debut at the Singapore Yacht Show this year, Italian superyacht builder Rossinavi will be returning in 2015. The company recently completed and delivered the second of its Prince Shark 49 vessels, the 49m M/Y Polaris. The semi-planing motoryacht reaches impressive speeds of up to 23 knots with accommodation for 12 guests and 11 crew. The third in the Prince Shark 49 series is due for delivery in 2015.
Visitors at the Singapore Yacht Show 2014
Building world-renowned vessels between 12m and 47m, Sunseeker is one of the strongest brands in the world to combine expertise across this range. Having exhibited at the Singapore Yacht Show since its inception, Sunseeker Asia will return in 2015 to showcase the choice of impressive motoryacht acquisitions that are available to visitors at the event.
Another longstanding supporter of the Singapore Yacht Show, Kingship, the leading superyacht builder in China, will once again be exhibiting in 2015. Kingship has a busy year ahead, with the 44m Green Voyager energy efficient ‘green’ motoryacht project due for completion and a refit project on its debut launch, M/Y Star, underway. At this year’s Singapore Yacht Show the company announced a custom-built multihull concept, the Kingship 55 Catamaran Motoryacht, which will no doubt be popular with the Asian market, as multihulls offer generous space and stability due to their hullform.
Having exhibited at the Show in 2014, Axis Group Yacht Design will be returning in 2015. The Italy-based company specializes in technical aspects of yacht design for vessels of 40m and above, including exterior design, naval architecture and engineering. The company recently announced a new shallow-draft yacht concept range in partnership with Rossinavi, called the Bahamas Series, with vessels of 48m and 40m currently in the line. Although originally conceived for the Caribbean due to its remarkable 1.8m draft, the series would be beautifully placed to cruise remote shallow waters of archipelagos throughout the Asia Pacific.
Also set to return in 2015, Singapore-based yacht dealer Premium Nautical will be representing a number of new vessels from marine brands Fountaine Pajot Catamarans and Motor Yachts, Four Winns and Outremer. The company also sells a wide range of pre-owned yachts from various leading brands from around the world.
As South East Asia’s exclusive dealer for CABO and Hatteras Yachts, Reel Torque will once again be representing the sportfisher and motoryacht brands at the Singapore Yacht Show in 2015. With operations in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, Reel Torque has a strong network of dealerships throughout the region and a strong emphasis on service and after-sales care.
The second largest insurance company in Singapore, AXA Insurance Singapore will once again be on display at the Show in 2015. With over a century of presence in the city-state, Axa offers specialist yachting solutions as well as a full spectrum of insurance services.
Having enjoyed a very successful Singapore Yacht Show in 2014, Funair will also be on display next year. The company offers a wide range of inflatable accessories for superyachts as well as residential use, including custom inflatable slides, work platforms, climbing walls and swim platform extensions that provide the perfect parking spot for jetskis.
Markagain is an innovative Italian company that provides buyers an opportunity to buy or sell pre-owned luxury goods, including yachts, premium cars, luxury real estate and private aircraft. A service of Cerved Credit Management, Markagain capitalises more than EUR 10 billion of distressed credits and goods. In 2015, the company will be returning to Singapore Yacht Show again to showcase its exciting range.
Sunbrella will also be returning to showcase its range of upholstery, awning and marine applications. The brand, which was established in 1961, has made a name for itself in yachting and boating for the durability, fade resistance and ease of cleaning for its custom performance fabrics.
