Singapore Yachting Festival 2024
After a highly successful inaugural event in 2023, the Singapore Yachting Festival (SYF) will take place from 25th – 28th April 2024 at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove. With over 70 yachts on display and an abundance of F&B, entertainment, and immersive activities on offer, guests will be able to fully immerse in the distinct yachting way of living.
The 4-day event will showcase spectacular yacht displays and stunning entertainment. With a concerted effort to showcase the full spectrum of the unique yachting lifestyle, the 2024 edition will launch a Lifestyle Festival market; visitors can expect experiential activities, pop-up lifestyle stalls, demonstrations, live music, roving entertainment and much more. Arthur Tay, SUTL Enterprise CEO, said, “ONE°15’s acquisition of the Singapore Yachting Festival signifies a transformative journey towards elevating our brand influence in the marine industry. With curated unique experiences, SYF aligns seamlessly with our vision to propel yachting into a lifestyle embraced by a discerning, aspirational audience.”
As the world’s leading brands converge in Singapore, the Singapore Yachting Festival (SYF) will showcase an extensive line up of over 70 yachts. This marks a remarkable 45% increase compared to last year. Visitors including yacht buyers and boating enthusiasts have an unrivalled opportunity to explore some of the latest models from the leading names in the industry including Sanlorenzo, Ferretti, Azimut, Princess, Fountain Pajot and Leopard to name a few. An awards dinner produced by Yacht Style magazine, will showcase the best and the brightest in recreational boating industry.
In partnership with International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) and Singapore Boating Industry Association (SBIA), SYF will be preceded by the inaugural ICOMIA Boating Industry Conference from 23rd – 24th April 2024. Focused on sustainability and decarbonization, the event will host global speakers sharing insights on industry topics, covering the latest research and innovation including propulsion systems and infrastructure development, Asia’s growing markets, and industry-driven efforts in Grow Boating.
The Conference and Festival will see opportunities for networking sessions between local, regional, and international trade professionals. Singapore is Asia’s key hubs for yachts and superyachts, and the SYF plays a pivotal role in creating an event platform for world-leading yacht builders and suppliers, water-sports toys, and lifestyle brands to showcase their products for the ever-increasing appetite of Singaporeans and Asian audience.
In 2024, Simpson Marine will celebrate several major milestones including their 40th anniversary campaign that will be officially launched at the show and further deployed in Asia Ewa Stachurska, Simpson Marine’s Group Marketing Director said, “We are delighted to confirm our presence at the Singapore Yachting Festival 2024 with a spectacular fleet on display featuring several Asia Premieres of yacht and superyacht models as well as our portfolio of yacht services including superyacht brokerage, yacht charter and yacht management. Following a strong post pandemic re-activation and unexpected high levels of attendance from across Asia in 2023, our team is looking forward to yet another successful edition. We are planning something truly special for our customers this year and more details shall be unveiled in due course.”
Going beyond the typical boat show experience, SYF is set to incorporate a variety of captivating fringe events tailored for both trade and public visitors; key highlights will include wine tasting sessions, on-water demonstrations with electric surfboards and underwater scooters, private yacht tours, roving entertainers (including jugglers and face painters), and live entertainment. The newly-launched Lifestyle Festival Market will showcase an eclectic mix of pop-up retail and F&B booths, including bars and artisanal cuisine. The weekend will also incorporate a supercar display, which will see some of the hottest cars in Singapore make their way to Sentosa for an epic motor display.
