The Singapore Yacht Show (SYS) is a four-day event providing nautical lifestyle seekers with an opportunity to discover some of the world’s finest motor yachts and best-known boating brands in a highly social, fun-filled setting. The 2019 edition runs from 11–14 April.
After last year’s record-breaking SYS, organiser Verventia promises visitors to this year’s show a showcase of more yacht premieres than ever before, as well as a luxury lifestyle extravaganza and a vibrant social calendar. With more than 16,000 visitors expected over the show there will be something for everyone, with a wide range of activities for couples, families and groups of friends.
A show for yachting newbies and seasoned sailors alike, there will be plenty to see, try out and enjoy at SYS. At the Floating Leisure Hub, more adventurous visitors will have a chance to participate in demonstrations of the latest toys including jetskis, submersibles, inflatables, day boats and fishing equipment.
Companies from the Australian marine industry who will make the journey over include Rivergate Marina and Ahoy Club, while the Marina Industries Association will represent a number of Australian marinas. The marina will come alive each night as stylish soirées and yacht parties get underway.
The countdown to SYS 2019 is on, and the yacht line-up contains new additions of the latest models on the market to headline the show this year. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Style, design and innovation come together in the Azimut 66. At 28 square metres, the prestigious Azimut Yachts Hong Kong presents, in the 66, one of the largest flybridge areas of its class and offers owners themed interior and customisation options.
ALEGRIA 67 FOUNTAINE PAJOT
A first to be unveiled in Asia at the Show is the Alegria 67 presented by Fountaine Pajot. This 20-metre catamaran is a one-of-a-kind beauty featuring an ocean terrace on the expansive flybridge and a stylish forward cockpit which can accommodate a Jacuzzi.
PALM BEACH GT50
The Palm Beach GT50 makes her way to the show in her Asian debut following her launch in February this year. Building on the success of the recent launch of the GT50 Salon Express, the GT50 Open carries the same formidable power as her predecessor and extends further with an expansive main-deck layout to maximise a sun-lover’s enjoyment.
