With previous editions in Europe and USA, the Yachtmaster has set sail for Singapore, making port in the exotic and beautiful destination. The event opened with a Benetti welcome speech followed by talks from both RINA and the Gold Coast City Marina, an Italian aperitivo and a luxurious dinner.
Benetti Yachtmaster events symbolise not only an opportunity to socialise and have fun, attendees also have the chance to interact with key figures in the yachting community, with new ventures and partnerships typically stemming from the gathering.
In particular, the Singapore Roadshow offers a series of insightful talks regarding cruising regulations in APAC and the marina status in Australia, as well as team building activities for all attendees.
The significance of selecting Singapore as the host venue for this Yachtmaster event should not be underestimated. Singapore is a key destination for the global elite and the yacht community.
As the rise of the region’s economy remains so strong, the decision to host the Benetti Yachtmaster in Singapore is a clear nod to the community’s aspirations in the area.
Peter Mahony, General Manager of Benetti Asia, said “Singapore conveys a natural affinity for the highlife, for prestige and for appreciation of quality and design.
This synergises well with Benetti’s expertise and capabilities, alongside the elements which encapsulate the Benetti brand.
Furthermore, the strength of Singapore’s economy is a positive sign that encourages the development of these terrific cruising grounds for international luxury yachts.”
Ocean was in attendance for this event, talking to key members of the superyacht industry.
