Property Here - Thursday, April 18, 2013
By Andrew Batt:
Boat Asia 2013 kicks off today at Singapore’s Marina and Keppel Bay, and will showcase a stunning array of luxury yachts and the best that the leisure marine industry has to offer.
More than 30 yachts, ranging in size from six metres up to 50 metres, will form the centrepiece of the show. Participating brands include Bavaria, Beneteau, Carver, Cabo, Fairline, Grady White, Grand Banks, Horizon, Lago, Odyssey, Princess, Prosail, Raymarine, Riviera, Silvertrone, Stealth, Zar and others.
Marine infrastructure is well represented and supporting marinas of Boat Asia 2013 include Marina at Keppel Bay, Changi Sailing Club, Raffles Marina, RSYC, Yacht Haven and Nansha Marina.
Tango 5, the latest Horizon EP115 from the EP Series, Horizon’s much-praised long-range expedition series of ocean-going vessels will make its maiden appearance at Boat Asia 2013. Commissioned by a Singapore-based client, the yacht was designed with ocean adventure in mind with five state rooms, an extended cockpit for fishing and a customised dive area.
This year, Boat Asia will also feature a brand new hosted programme for high-net-worth visitors from China and Indonesia. There will also be a gala event for the cream of Asia’s boating high society and the leisure industry.
Held at the award-winning Marina at Keppel Bay for the sixth consecutive year, the premium waterfront precinct of Keppel Bay provides a smooth launch pad to the leading boat show in this region.
Officially launched at the Cannes Boat Show in September last year, Boat Asia 2013 has grown and played a central role in developing the boating industry in Singapore and the region, with a firm commitment to promoting the business of yacht dealers and their brands, as well as marinas. Exhibitors at Boat Asia 2012, which last year attracted a crowd of 12,000 visitors and more than 100 exhibits from the Asia-Pacific, Europe, US, Middle East, and China, routinely transact business worth in the tens of millions of dollars.
Boat Asia runs until April 21 and is open between 2pm and 10pm on Thursday to Saturday, and from 2pm until 8pm on Sunday.
