In addition to the display of yachts there’ll be morning cruise trips, live demonstrations, interactive activities and parties allowing visitors to get up close and personal with the yachting lifestyle.

The stellar line-up at this year’s show includes some of the world’s biggest superyachts, including the 90m Cassens-Werft-built Lauren L, the biggest yacht ever to be exhibited at any show in Asia and presented by Titan Fleet Management and the Feadship’s 60m motor yacht M/Y Paraffin which will be presented by Fraser Yachts. She can accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms and has ample interior and exterior space for relaxing and entertaining. Her wine cellar (yes, a wine cellar!) is as enviable as the range of toys and tenders on board.

Multihulls will be a popular force at this year’s show due to their spacious interiors and deck space, as well as the great stability they provide while underway and at anchor. On display, Fountaine Pajot presented by Multihull Solutions, and Sunreef exhibited by Northrop and Johnson.
