The Singapore Yacht Show 2014 which took place from 10-13 April was truly a luxurious event with around 90 yachts on display to entice both enthusiasts and the super-rich, as the yachting culture in Singapore picks up.
My favourite yacht on display was of course the Vertigo by Alloy Yachts.
Record numbers attended the Singapore Yacht Show today to soak up the festive atmosphere, attend the fashion shows and browse the many supercars, boats and superyachts on display.
Some of the most prestigious yachts, valued at half a billion dollars in total, are on display at the Singapore Yacht Show.
A major highlight of Saturday’s show was the arrival of the fleet of Ferrari from the Ferrari Owners Club of Singapore.

Besides the super car showcase, there were also two fashion events – showcasing some local brands – Camilla (with Wattletree) and White Moon.
There was also a Boaters Bar which was open for guests to eat , drink and be merry
According to the organizers, this is the most successful event so far with record number of visitors
Andy Treadwell, managing director of event organisers Singapore Yacht Events, said he was overwhelmed by the turnout.
“The swelling numbers we are seeing this year prove there’s a tangible appetite for the yachting lifestyle here in Asia. Many of our exhibitors who are new to the market in this region have been delighted by the reception they have received…
At the end of the day, time on the water is about having fun and the visitors here are really starting to understand how their time with family and friends can be uniquely enriched through owning boats and yachts.”
When the exhibition closed at night, we had an awesome after-party at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove:

One of the highlights of this party was the performance by DJ Klaus and Ameet ‘El Bongo’ Jugnauth.
Klaus de Macedo and Ameet Jugnauth, originally from Brazil and Mauritius respectively, make up the legendary duo London Beats.
The duo is renowned for putting on performances that are ‘unconventional’ and representative of the cosmopolitan vibes of London, mixing deep electronica drops with the use of live percussive instruments.
I really liked the performance very much because it was highly energetic and brought smiles to plenty of people’s faces..
This is me and the Digital Marketing Manager at W Singapore. Speaking to her reminds me very much of my travels in Southern France two summers ago!
