Comments from Exhibitors and Partners at the 2017 Show
This is the biggest show in Asia – we believe this this is a great platform, in the right location and it provides the audience with a fantastic show. We’re happy to be sponsor SYS and be a part of it!

The 7th edition of Singapore Yacht Show was the best edition that Simpson Marine has ever had. Our new location to a highly visible spot was well received and certainly increased our presence in the show along with our numerous evening activities over the 4 days. The show is without doubt the right platform for the launch of new yachts and products and we are looking forward to 2018!
Nick Stratton, Simpson Marine
"It's been a good show this year for Boat Lagoon Yachting - our biggest display of 13 luxury yachts attracted a huge amount of interest from both seasoned and first-time buyers, particularly the Princess S60 which made her In-Water World Premiere at the show. The event has certainly reinforced its standing as the best platform in Asia for yacht enthusiasts, and it was a truly a great opportunity to promote the leisure marine lifestyle."

We chose the Singapore Yacht Show as the launch platform for our Virtual Reality technology. We met with potential clients, partners and media and did product demonstrations to show off SW Interactive and its benefits. The response was very positive and quite overwhelming and it is quite clear that the yachting industry understood how Virtual Reality is changing the game.
Serguei Beloussov, SW Interactive
The Show feels very positive this year - there have definitely been more visitors, more serious buyers having more fun, and we like the new opening times.
Mahmoud Itani, Gulf Craft
A huge congratulations to the marina and the show organisers, SYS 2017 has exceeded our expectations. In terms of boat sales we have had stratospheric results, and have exceeded the number of sales from last year.
Kiran Haslam, Princess Yachts
Last year we had a stand on the Esplanade, but this year we were able to display a brand new Sunseeker Manhattan 55, which attracted a lot of interest. We are continuously strengthening our presence in the region, and the Singapore Yacht Show is a key part of our strategy. We will be back with a much bigger presence next year. The Singapore Yacht Show is the Show to be at – it is the focal point of the whole region.
Douglas Culverwell, Sunseeker
Leopard Catamarans has had an excellent Show, with two boats sold (so far), the Leopard 45 and the Leopard 48
Kit Chotithamaporn, Leopard Catamarans
We are extremely happy with SYS this year, attracting guests from across the region, and selling five boats throughout the weekend. Our booth had no downtime and we were overflowing from opening way past show closing every night. We are delighted by our growing Azimut family here in Singapore and we look forward to putting on an even bigger display next year.
Choppy Tan, Azimut
May I say thank you for a very good show; we saw plenty of good quality clients, and we are optimistic about a sale. Our competitors were also happy to be able to show a superyacht of superior quality - if we want to develop the Asian market, we have to let everyone onboard to promote the top end of the industry. I am delighted to have made SilverFast open and flexible in this respect, and I am sure it will pay back one day.
Guido Krass, SilverYachts
There was a really good feel to the place, a great ambience, we’ve had a fantastic four days here at the Singapore Yacht Show – lots of interaction with show visitors. We’ve seen it growing every year and this is the biggest so far. The region needs a boat show, and this is the one!
Peter Staalsmid, Sevenstar Yacht Transport
This year`s edition of the SYS was very successful for Sunreef Yachts. We had good visibility at the venue thanks to our location and our two catamarans on display, including Sunreef 62 Annette II which premiered and the Sunreef Supreme 68 Eagle Wings. We came back from the show with a number of potential buyers from around the region. The SYS is definitely growing and has become one of the most important shows in our global marketing calendar.
