Singapore Yacht Show 2013: something for everybody Published: 27.02.2013
The 2013 edition of the Singapore Yacht Show is gearing up to be a must-see event, that will showcase the latest, greatest and best that the yachting and luxury worlds have to offer. Whether you are a novice to yachting, or have been boating all your life, there really is something for everyone at the show.
Held on 18 – 21 April the Show is set at the ONE°15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove. These beautiful surroundings, in the heart of Singapore’s yachting hub, offer the perfect setting to enjoy the world of luxury yachting.
For those looking to explore the idea of owning a yacht, why not consider a charter on a yacht to really get a feel for what the world of superyachts entails? Charter is well established as the best introduction to yachting and as an entry point to ownership. A meeting with one of the Show’s exhibiting brokers should be your first point of call if you are considering charter or buying a yacht of your own.
Choosing the right type of yacht - for purchase or charter

Whether for charter or purchase, a key point of consideration is whether to go for a sailing yacht or a motoryacht. Sailing yachts are growing in numbers, but motoryachts are still the most popular option. When making a decision there are lots of points to consider: motoryachts make for a spacious entertainment platform, with plenty of speed and power, whereas sailing yachts appeal more to those looking for a purer form of yachting, with a wide range and peaceful cruising. Size is another choice, and every type of boat is catered for at the Show, whether it is a smaller day boat for coastal cruising or a superyacht.
Options for design and style are endless, and the Show offers a range of the world’s best builders and designers able to advise on the best yacht to suit your lifestyle. Big names like Sunseeker, one of Asia’s most popular yachting brands, will be exhibiting along with other popular builders including Princess Yachts, Westport and Palmer Johnson.
Premium Nautical is a first time exhibitor to the Singapore Yacht Show and will be able to speak with guests about the eight luxury boat brands they represent in Singapore. As with many of the exhibitors, they have diverse experience in sailing boats, catamarans, motor boats and yachts as well as brokerage services for those selling a boat in preparation for their new vessel.
The jewel in the crown's fleet
With an impressive fleet of yachts on display at the Show there will be plenty of options for visitors to look at as food for thought. The jewel in the fleet’s crown is the spectacular 57.5m sailing yacht Twizzle, built by Dutch yard Royal Huisman in 2010. As one of the biggest yacht registered to exhibit so far, Twizzle is not to be missed and is sure to turn heads. Available for charter around Asia, she could be the perfect option for those considering charter for the first time.
Of course, there is plenty on offer for those who are well established in yachting as well. Whether you are considering a new purchase or an upgrade, or just want to discuss the latest designs and innovations or speak with the industry’s leading players, the event should be firmly in your diary.
Partnering this yachting spectacular is a complimentary range of bespoke products including private jets, jewellery, art and high-end properties. Together they offer an unsurpassed showcase of the world of luxury.
