The Singapore Yacht Show 2017 returns next month, and is gearing up to be a spectacular one with its line-up of outstanding yachts and luxurious leisure activities.

Held from 6 to 9 April 2017, the event takes place at the scenic ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove. Guests can look forward to the Asian premiere of several new yachts from reputed names such as such as Simpson Marine, Hong Seh Marine and Sunreef Yachts. They will also be among the first in the world to step onboard Charley, a massive tri-deck catamaran which is built by Echo Yachts, and will make its debut at the show.

The Singapore Yacht Show 2017 will also take the action onto land, where you’ll find Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley car owner clubs parading their supercars. Leading drinks importation and distribution company, Singapore Beverages Pte Ltd, will also be at hand to ensure your glasses never go empty, with its wide range of brands from Lanson champagne to Singleton whisky at the event.

Pershing 5X

A collaboration between Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department and architect Fulvio De Simoni, the 16.5m-long Italian sports cruiser retains the same styling identity as the previous Pershings with its very sleek lines. The vessel is fast too, with a maximum speed of 45 knots if you choose the twin CAT 12.9 engines producing 1,000hp each. The X letter in the name recalls the aeronautic code, evoking high performance and technological evolution. The main deck features a spacious lounge and plenty of outdoor space, while the lower deck has two en-suite cabins and the galley.

Supreme 68 — Eagle Wings

Sunreef Yacht’s Supreme 68 is the mother of sailing cats. It’s wide and spacious with a ton of cool features. There’s a swanky bar in the saloon, a jacuzzi in the bow, and a large aft garage, which contains room for a 5m-long boat and two jetskis. Great for entertaining, the yacht features four cabins and crew quarters, enabling you to travel with friends and family comfortably for long periods. Constructed out of composite materials, this futuristic and lifestyle-oriented 20.5m yacht is a must-see at this year’s show.

Princess 75 MY

Launched last year, the Princess 75 shows off the level of quality and refinement Princess Yachts has come to be known for. Owned by L Capital of the LVMH Group, this near 81-foot yacht features designer trims and materials throughout, allowing the owners to tick off options — such as a Fendi sofa  if their heart desires. The largest and most powerful engine option, the twin MAN 1800, offers excellent performance and ensures guests on this luxurious four cabin motor yacht are able to travel from one exotic destination to the next, quickly and comfortably.

Ocean Emerald

Designed by Norman Foster and built by Rodriguez Yachts, Ocean Emerald  featured in the film Point Break  will be on display at the Singapore Yacht Show this year. The 41m floating sculpture offers an unmistakable design unlike anything else before it. Offering five suites with room for 12, this state-of-the-art superyacht features amenities and toys to keep everyone on board occupied.  From a gym and jacuzzi to a home cinema, you’ll never want to leave — unless it’s to hop on a jet boat, or one of the jet skis, and have some fun in the sun. For such a large yacht, the Ocean Emerald is surprisingly quick and can hit a top speed of 18 knots. And with a range of 2,600 miles, it will take you just about anywhere you’d want to go in the region.

Charley

We’ve saved the best for last. Making its world debut from Australian manufacturer Echo Yachts, the 46m-long, twin-hulled Charley is built of infused composite resin, the largest vessel to undergo this process in Australia. This boat features everything from diving decompression chambers to a helicopter pad, and can fit up to 10 watercrafts. Interestingly enough, in case you thought Charley was the star of the show, it’s actually only a shadow vessel — it’s meant to support the larger 84m White Rabbit Golf that’s currently being built. This floating garage also has room for your friends in its three guest cabins, as well as crew quarters for up to 13 people. Charley is a must-have accessory for any superyacht owner, and is definitely worth exploring at this year’s show.
