Singapore Yacht Show 2017 Seals Position as Asia’s Premier Boat Show
As the horns blew to signal the end of the 2017 edition of the Singapore Yacht Show, the mood was jubilant amongst exhibitors. Over the course of the four-day event, SYS welcomed a total of 14,286 visitors through its doors for what was widely considered its best ever edition. In addition to the 94 yachts on water, visitors were treated to a glamorous programme of supercar parades, fashion shows, yacht parties, gourmet food stalls and an array of pop-up bars.
The SYS 2017 line-up hit new milestones with the largest ever yacht on display – the 77m Silver Fast, and a record number of World and Asian premieres. Prominent brands such as Boat Lagoon Yachting and the Ferretti Group chose SYS as a platform to debut their newest yachts and concepts to the Asian market. Boat Lagoon Yachting had the largest exhibit, with a total of 13 boats on display, including the first ever in-water showing of the sporty but elegant Princess S60, and the Asia premiere of Jeanneau’s Sun Odyssey 349. In partnership with Hong Seh Marine, the Ferretti Group showcased five yachts, three of which – Ferretti Yachts 450, Pershing 5X and Ferretti Yachts 700 – made their regional debut.
