11 – 14th April 2019
ONE° 15 Sentosa Cove
It’s that time of the year again – with almost 90 brands represented and 90 yachts, boats and other watercraft on display – you can float your boat at the Singapore Yacht Show 2019; it’s 9th edition.
With over 20 superyachts expected, many of which have never before been displayed in Asia, the Singapore Yacht Show is one of the region’s leading players in developing the superyacht charter market in Asia.
Over the years, the mission and purpose behind the Singapore Yacht Show has changed. By working closely with various governments in the ASEAN economic community, the long-term goal is to promote South East Asia – and its stunning sailing grounds – as an alternative winter destination for the global fleet of 5,000 superyachts that currently call the Mediterranean their permanent homes.
The cost of bringing a superyacht half way round the world and running it in S.E. Asia for a season can run to several million dollars. Unless owners have the opportunity to rent their yacht out when they’re not using it, the majority of these stunning vessels will miss out on spectacular sailing grounds.
The goal is to allow foreign yachts to charter without the current import regulations, that would bring significant income and prosperity to local business and communities, as well as revenues for governments, job creation and inward investment.
