TMX Show productions has announced a stunning array of luxury yachts showcasing the best that the leisure marine industry has to offer at Boat Asia, which will take place from 18-21st April 2013 at Marina at Keppel Bay, Singapore.

Over 30 yachts from 6m to 50m will form the centrepiece of the boat show, exhibited both on and off the water. This year, participating brands include Bavaria, Beneteau, Carver, Cabo, Fairline, Grady White, Grand Banks, Horizon, Lago, Odyssey, Princess, Prosail, Raymarine, Riviera, Silvertrone, Stealth, Zar and others. Marine infrastructure is once again well represented and supporting marinas of Boat Asia 2013 include Changi Sailing Club, Raffles Marina, RSYC, Yacht Haven and Nansha Marina.

Taking centrestage at Marina at Keppel Bay this year will be ‘Vava II’, a 97-metre superyacht commissioned by a Swiss-Italian entrepreneur for his wife. Built by Devonport Yachts at Plymouth, England, the hull was subcontracted to Appledore Shipbuilders and launched in 2009, at which time she was claimed to be the largest British-built superyacht.

Also putting in an appearance at the boat show venue will be Benetti’s stunningly opulent 213ft yacht ‘Ambrosia’, a six-deck triumph of yacht styling by Stefano Natucci with interiors by yachting classicist Francois Zuretti.

‘Tango 5’, the latest Horizon EP115 from the EP Series, Horizon’s much-praised long-range expedition series of ocean-going vessels will meanwhile make its maiden appearance at Boat Asia 2013. Commissioned by a Singapore-based client, the yacht was designed with ocean adventure in mind with five state rooms, an extended cockpit for fishing and a customised dive area.

New this year to Boat Asia, Reel Torque Yachts will be presenting the impressive Cabo 52, flagship of Cabo’s Express fleet of sleek flybridge sports fishing yachts. Adventourous visitors with a hankering for big game fishing will enjoy viewing her large, beamy lines, huge fishing cockpit and full customization options.

This year, the Boat Asia will also feature a brand new hosted programme for high net worth visitors from China and Indonesia. There will also be a Gala event for the cream of Asia’s boating high society and the leisure industry.

An impressive line up of charter yachts ranging from power boats to sailing boats and catamarans with full crewing and catering services will be presented from such established charter specialists as Azurea Luxury Yacht Charter, Lloyd Marine, SG Yachting and Sunsail. Meanwhile the engineering and supply side of the boating industry is represented by leading brands such as Aquila-Nova, MAN Diesel, Maggie Catene and YMC Marine amongst others.
Held at the award winning Marina at Keppel Bay, this premium location exuding style and sophistication provides a smooth launch pad to the stunning marine parks around the region. Engage the marina’s charter services or sign up with Keppel Bay Sailing Academy if you’re looking advance your sailing skills.

As always, Boat Asia redefines luxury not only on the water but on land too, with its lifestyle exhibitors and sponsors. This year, Boat Asia has put together one of the most impressive set of lifestyle brands ever seen in a boating setting. Corum is the Official Timepiece with classic nautical chronometers on display. 'Priceless' moments can be savoured with MasterCard, who host Boat Asia’s VIP Island Suite and will be tantalizing members’ palates with a world-class gastronomic spread from Gaggenau in conjunction with renowned star chef Ryan Clift, culinary impressario from Singapore’s renowned, award-winning Tippling Club.

McLaren Automotive is this year’s Presenting Sponsor of Boat Asia. Land Rover, meanwhile, makes an appearance as Official Car of the boat show. For those prefering to take things at a slower pace there is the Mumm Champagne Floating Bar, another new attraction this year, as well as waterfront fashion shows by Sophie Martine of Paris. Those wishing to capture their precious Boat Asia moments for posterity should watch out for premium camera manufacturer Leica as well as premium luxury mobile phone maker Vertu. Paul and Shark return as Official Yachting Wear sponsor.

Officially launched at the Cannes Boat Show in September last September, Boat Asia 2013 has grown and played a central role in developing the boating industry in Singapore and the region, with a firm commitment to promoting the business of yacht dealers and their brands, as well as marinas. Exhibitors at Boat Asia 2012, which last year attracted a crowd of 12,000 visitors and over 100 exhibits from the Asia-Pacific, Europe, US, Middle East, and China, routinely transact business worth in the tens of millions of dollars.
Whatever your taste or pleasure in yachts, whether you’re a long time boating aficionado or a newbie looking to get into the past time, there’s something for you this year at Boat Asia 2013.
