The seventh instalment of Asia’s premier boat show promises to impress with regional premieres on water, lifestyle events and glamorous parties on water and on-land. Excitement and anticipation for the seventh edition of the Singapore Yacht Show (SYS) is already building despite being three months away.
From 6-9 April 2017, some of the industry’s most important yacht builders and brokers will once again showcase their vessels at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove.

As the Show organisers draw the curtain on last December’s successful Thailand Yacht Show, they now shift their focus to Singapore. The second edition of the Thailand Yacht Show, held in partnership with the Thai government, took place from 15-18 December 2016 in Phuket’s Ao Po Grand Marina. With 60 exhibitors and no less than 55 vessels on display including 18 superyachts, the offering was certainly ‘bigger and better’ than any before. In addition to the sparkling displays of yachts and superyachts presented along the pontoons of Ao Po Grand Marina, the Demo Platform by Java Yachting offered live demonstrations of dinghy sailing, SUP, dragon boating and kayaking. Luxury lifestyle brands were also on land at the Exhibition Pavilion, to feature the very finest in Phuket property, fashion, cars and nautical ancillaries. The social scene at TYS was electric, with parties every night both on land and on board. TYS is set to come back with its third edition, which will take place between 14-17 December 2017.

Looking onward to SYS 2017, Andy Treadwell, Managing Director of both shows said, “We are very proud of what we have achieved in just seven years. We’re thrilled that so many of the industry’s most important players have identified SYS as the most effective platform from which to present their products to the Asian market. We are working flat out with a whole raft of important new local partners in all the strategic countries in the region to get the right kind of visitor coming to Singapore next April”.

Catamarans are King
Multihulls have long been popular in South East Asia, and have been particularly well received at SYS. Not only do they offer expansive interior and exterior spaces, they also provide great stability while underway and at anchor. SYS 2017 will welcome a new exhibitor, HH Catamarans who builds state-of-the-art, carbon fibre, high-performance catamarans for a discerning clientele seeking an exceptional experience.
