The Singapore Yacht Show was launched in 2011, having been identified as the best location in Asia to capitalise on the burgeoning economy and growing appetite for luxury pursuits, including those on the water. The Lion State was attractive because of its ease of access for both visitors and exhibitors, its supportive government, outstanding marina infrastructure and, most importantly, the fact that it is a destination that the region’ wealthy want to visit. The first Singapore Yacht Show, a preview event, welcomed 12 superyachts, 40 exhibitors and 3,800 high-quality visitors. Over seven years, with significant investment and effort, the Show has grown in size and stature, it now welcomes in excess of 80 yachts and boats, over 100 yachting brands and 14,000 visitors from all over the region.
