Singapore is well known as one of the most exciting and busy cities in the Far East. Home to a great marina, and some fantastic sights, a charter to host a corporate event is not only a great idea for the experience, but a great idea for your company as you can show your colleagues and clients some extraordinary sights whilst enjoying a meal and drinks from the splendour of the seas.
Events held on luxury yachts are far more impressive than just hiring another hotel meeting room. Luxury yachts are a fantastic way to entertain clients and to make a brilliant impression. During the day, yachts can act as an office and conference venue for meetings and presentations. In the evening, yachts are perfect for cocktail parties, formal dinners and other events. Not only do they give your corporate event that extra great feel, but it relieves stress on the client, as we organise the placement of the yacht, and help you to organise a smoothly run charter.
Singapore is well known for its cultural diversity, colonial history, world-class shopping and fantastic beaches, especially those found on Sentosa Island. It is also home to numerous high-class restaurants and the world’s only “Night Safari”, which houses more than 1,000 wild animals. A sailing cruise around the southern islands of Singapore, which offer spectacular views of the city skyline, is ideal for a corporate event yacht charter. Luxury yachts also offer a range of activities such as fishing, snorkelling, swimming and diving.
Chartering a yacht for corporate entertainment at the Singapore Grand Prix is becoming very popular. Many of the greatest yachts in Asia make their way to Singapore just for the race. The race circuit is just over 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) long, running adjacent to the harbour in the Marina Bay area. Only three other races in Formula One (the Monaco, Abu Dhabi and Valencia street circuits) run past a marina. However, Singapore stands out as the first night race in Formula One history. The timing of the race means that it can be broadcast live at a convenient time for European audiences.
Singapore is the perfect destination for a corporate entertainment event on a yacht, whether you want it during the Singapore Grand Prix, Chinese New Year, or just during the year for a conference meeting or to meet and greet with your colleagues and clients. To see the yachts we have listed for corporate entertainment in Singapore, please see here.
Chartering a yacht in Singapore during Chinese New Year is a fantastic opportunity and promises to be a fascinating experience for everybody involved. Whether you are interested in large fireworks displays, street festivals, carnivals, live music, or the lighting of thousands of Chinese lanterns, Chinese New Year on a luxury yacht is an experience not to be missed.
Chinese New Year (also know as Lunar New Year) is one of the biggest events celebrated by the Chinese community in Singapore. Around 75% of Singapore’s resident population are of Chinese origin, making them by far the largest ethnic group in Singapore. The next New Year (which will bring in the year of the snake) comes in on February 10th 2013.
The festivities begin on first day of the first month of the new Lunisolar calendar and last for 15 days. The Reunion dinner on the eve of the New Year is arguably the most important part of the celebrations. All of the family members will come together for a lavish meal with multiple courses, and the streets of Singapore come alive with parties and traditional music. During the festival, Chinatown and Boat Quay are full of street decorations, night markets, parties and dazzling lights. There are also plenty of dragon and lion dancers, and female dance groups in the main Kreta Ayer Square.
Check out one of our favourite Luxury Catamaran Corporate Event yachts for charters in Singapore is the Lagoon 450, which can take up to 27 guests. She would be the perfect companion to take your close friends and family on a day charter and to celebrate the New Year in style. Her exterior is second to none, providing lots of space to relax and take in all that Singapore has to offer. She offers great flexibility to her guests and can do half day, as well as full day charters.
The Chingay Parade is the largest carnival in Singapore, with fantastic floats and thousands of dancers. Since 2009, it has been held in the pit area of the Marina Bay Grand Prix circuit, which is right on the marina waterfront, This allows the parade to accommodative maximum spectators in the Formula One grandstands and to include a long waterway that allows performers to show off their spectacular aquatic stunts. An estimated 150,000 spectators attended the Parade in 2009.
The River Hongbao, which takes place on the floating platform at Marina Bay and the Esplanade Waterfront Promenade, is another extremely popular event. This event is famous for being one of the largest displays of Chinese lanterns in Southeast Asia, and includes performances from both foreign and local artists. It is suggested that the lanterns symbolize the people letting go of their past selves and starting fresh for the New Year.
