Singapore Yacht Show Doubles In Size

The number of visitors attending the third annual Singapore Yacht Show, on April 18-21, 2013, more than doubled, according to the event's organizers, who lauded its success and the significant deal activity reported by exhibitors.

Thousands of high, and ultra high net worth visitors turned out at Sentosa Cove for the first three days of the Singapore Yacht Show 2013, and exhibitors were reporting expectations that promising discussions would translate into sales.

Commenting at the event, Mark Cavendish sales director at Heesen Yachts said: "Compared to last year, I see enormous changes as first of all there are all these mega-yachts out in the marina, which is very encouraging for us. And the number of visitors, from the feeling of it is much, much higher than before."

William Schick general manager of Premium Nautical said: "This is the best and biggest crowd I have seen at any boat show in Singapore in the nine years since I arrived."

Along with attendance this year from larger boatyards, the number of exhibitors from outside the yachting sphere markedly increased, and included automobile manufacturer BMW, and numerous fashion brands.

Superyachts M/Y I Dynasty and S/Y Twizzle made their boat show debuts at the Singapore Yacht Show, while Italian brand Wider Yachts used the event to debut a number of day cruisers to the Asia market.
