New & Returning Superyachts at the Singapore Yacht Show 2016 Published: 13.01.2016
With the sixth edition of the Singapore Yacht Show (SYS) just four months away, the international yachting industry has shifted its focus to the Lion City. Leading the way is the 43m M/Y Triple 8. M/Y Triple 8, built by Royal Denship in 2009, has recently entered the superyacht market for sale, following an extensive voyage spanning the globe, from East Coast USA, to the Pacific Islands, Australia, and finally the serene waters of South East Asia.
Italian shipyard Fincantieri will join the growing list of SYBAss members exhibiting at the Singapore Yacht Show, building brand awareness and making valuable connections among Asia’s elite. Fincantieri made waves in 2015 with the launch of M/Y Ocean Victory, which was moored in Singapore during SYS 2015 and has since remained in the Asia Pacific region on the owner’s maiden voyage world tour. Upon her launch, M/Y Ocean Victory was the 9th largest yacht in the world, and the largest yacht to come from an Italian Yard. Who knows what new designs and concepts Fincantieri will present to a discerning Asian audience in April?
This year’s Show will also see the return of Australian yacht builder, SILVERYACHTS. Following the launch of the super-sleek and eco-friendly M/Y Silver Fast, SILVERYACHTS recently unveiled its latest build project, the fast and fuel efficient world explorer M/Y Silver Loft. Currently under construction, and scheduled for delivery in 2017, SILVERYACHTS will no doubt present this explorer yacht at the Singapore Yacht Show 2016.
Toys are often jewel in the crown of any superyacht, and this year’s show will present an impressive array of the latest yacht toys and tenders. Long-standing exhibitor Supratechnic will be back with a larger presence than ever, boasting an even greater array of jet skis, amphibious vehicles, and outboard engines. Asia will also be introduced to Quadrofoil for the first time, an eco friendly jet ski which is sure to turn heads as it slices through the water, raised on four hydrofoils.
