In pictures: Singapore Yacht Show 2018

Cocktail parties, networking events, and VIP dinners marked the eighth edition of the show.

ONE ̊15 Marina in Sentosa Cove welcomed over 15,000 potential buyers and charterers from all around Asia from April 11 to 15. In line with the yachting lifestyle, visitors were treated to a programme of glamorous yacht parties, networking events, gourmet food and jewellery stalls, pop-up bars and high-end entertainment.

The Floating Leisure Hub, a dedicated area for boating enthusiasts and watersports fans located in the heart of the show, was packed with the recreational watercraft and luxury retailers.

Here, visitors joined a packed schedule of live demonstrations, sea trials, prize giveaways, and evening networking events. The Interactive Demo on Demand – with SUP, kayaking, fishing simulator and boating basics demonstrations – was also a major draw.

Complementing the show was a social calendar which included cocktail parties on-board superyachts, a floating lounge bar, the Boardwalk Retail Village, supercar parades, wine and gin festivals, and even wellness workshops from spa resort Chiva Som.

Other land-based activities included the Lamborghini and Ferrari Rendezvous, wine and gin festivals, a cigar and whisky party, and the VIP lounge which pulled in high rollers who were into town for the show.

Meanwhile, an “All That Glitters” Sentosa Ball opened the social proceedings on Thursday evening which was held in the Grand Ballroom of the W Singapore - Sentosa Cove. At the gala dinner, a silent auction took place with proceeds going to the Biosphere Foundation.
