The 5th Singapore Yacht Show took place between the 23rd and 26th April at One 15 Marina Club, and Boatbookings were on hand to see view the finest yachts for charter in southeast Asia.
As the show opened on Thursday afternoon, the heavens opened to give visitors a traditional welcome to Singapore! But the weather wasn’t going to stop the show. In among the usual lifestyle exhibitors of fast cars, jewellers, property developers and private jets, the local and international Southeast Asia charter yachts were on display in order for the Boatbookings Team to step onboard and get to know these yachts and their crews inside out.
If you are heading to Monaco at the end of September then pay attention! Following up on our previous blog about the Monaco Yacht Show, here at Boatbookings we have put together a list of boats to look out for.
Walking around Monaco’s Port Hercules, you will be genuinely astounded at the size of these majestic machines. Expect to see yachts featuring jacuzzis, 40 foot tenders and possibly even a helicopter or submarine! These beautiful beasts of the sea exemplify the very best in craftsmanship and design.
First on our list is GIORGIA, a 37 metre luxury motor yacht from the esteemed Benetti label. A name that exudes understated elegance, style and comfort, Benetti have spared nothing in the build of this boat. Accommodating up to 10 guests in 5 luxurious and beautifully appointed en-suite cabins, she is ideal for family vacations around the French Riviera, Italy and Croatia. Her features include a top deck jacuzzi, bar and barbecue and zero speed stabilisers which make her one our favourite charter yachts around. Benetti have a range of stunning yachts at this year`s event – be sure not to miss LATITUDE or OCEAN PARADISE – at 52 metres and 55 metres respectively it would be pretty hard to!
Secondly, keep a look out for is WHISPERING ANGEL – a 5 cabin ISA 120. Having been built in 2008 it may seem surprising she has been included in this year`s show, however her full refit last year has made her the floating paragon of luxurious comfort. With a gorgeous al fresco dining area, splash pool on the flybridge, state of the art entertainment system and huge array of water toys, she is a great family or event boat for charter.
Finally, powerhouse Oceanco will be showcasing and unveiling several of their 80 metre and upwards range, including brand new Tim Heywood designed DANA and Nuvolari & Lenard designed RIALTO. These gorgeous Goliath’s of the ocean measure in at 105 and 110 metres, and will most likely steal the show.
Come and experience the splendour of the Monaco Yacht Show 2013!
