Around 14,000 public and trade visitors from all over Asia attended the event, which featured a total of 96 watercraft, from jet skis and tenders to luxury motorboats and elegant super yachts, covering a total area some 50% bigger than last year’s show.

Managing director of organisers Singapore Yacht Events, Andy Treadwell, said, “These numbers clearly demonstrate that people in this region are increasingly enthusiastic about boating. The feedback we have had from our exhibitors and sponsors shows that everybody now sees the Singapore Yacht Show as Asia’s number one event for the global yachting industry.”

Brokers, builders, marine industry brands and lifestyle exhibitors alike all reported having a truly excellent show with impressive numbers of highly qualified visitors expressing serious interest.

Charlie Birkett, CEO of first-time exhibitors Y.CO, which jointly represented the 67m S/Y Vertigo, told SuperyachtNews he was very pleased with the interest they had received over the event. “This show is fantastic and we are very happy to be here. We’ve seen a lot of people who have shown interest in S/Y Vertigo, the star of the show, which we are presenting here for charter. We take this region really seriously.” Birkett said.

Mike Simpson, CEO of Simpson Marine, Asia’s largest and longest-established yacht broker and dealer, agreed: “The sun has been shining on a fantastic show that is packed with boats. It’s very interesting to see how the show has developed over the last few years since it was started. We see this as the key show for the region.”

Many of the biggest and best-known yacht builders in the world were in attendance. Michael Breman, Sales Director of Lürssen Yachts, builder of M/Y Azzam, at 180m the world’s biggest yacht, commented: “Singapore is the hub for a larger region so it is a good backdrop to have an event like this where you can show your brand to the affluent. For Lürssen, the Singapore Yacht Show is the cornerstone in the building of [our] brand awareness in Asia”.

Other world-leading shipyards echoed Breman’s views. Burak Akgül, managing director of Perini Navi Group, was also enthusiastic about the potential for the big yards in Asia: “This first occasion that we’re at the Singapore Yacht Show is a great opportunity. We’ve had some interesting appointments made, with some very recognisable names, [for] introducing the Picchiotti and Perini Navi products.”

While the superyachts draw much of the attention, being highly visible and inspirational, and therefore a seriously important part of the “educational” aspect of developing the industry in Asia, it is in the smaller production boat sector that the builders can expect to see most rapid growth and uptake. Leading players in this arena were also highly impressed with SYS 2014. “I have been to many boat shows all around the world, and this particular show has grown tremendously in size and there is huge potential here. We have been very happy with the clients that we have been talking to”, commented Alister Brunksill, Princess South East Asia.

The show organisers also ran the Asia Pacific Yachting Conference (APYC), a yachting industry forum, as part of the event, as well as a ‘Captains Lounge’, where business to business networking was the order of the day. Chief Executive of Superyacht Australia MaryAnne Edwards, which sponsored both of the aforementioned, was impressed: “Over four years, the Singapore Yacht Show will have quadrupled and I think that now, it is really becoming the superyacht show in Asia.”

Alexander Tesch, MD of MTU Asia, which co-sponsored the APYC and Captains Lounge with Superyacht Australia and Sevenstar Yacht transport, added: “For MTU, the Singapore Yacht Show is a very good showcase for what we can offer here in this region. The event has grown every year and we believe it is the strongest show here in Asia. We are very happy to be part of it and we hope to see it continue to expand over the coming years.”

Complementary lifestyle and industry services exhibitors also commended the quality of visitors at the show. Andreas Arnold, head of key account management at Luxaviation Group, one of the show’s main sponsors this year, said: “We have had great feedback, especially in charter, but also in aircraft management solutions from the whole of South East Asia.” His CEO, Barth Foucart, Luxaviation, added: “The reason we partner with the Singapore Yacht Show is that the public looking for this type of boats, is the same market we are targeting for private jet flights”.

While yachting and boating was naturally the main focus for the show, it would be impossible to ignore the enormous enthusiasm for supercars and fashion in Singapore and the wider region. Making special appearances over the weekend, local car owner clubs for Ferrari and Lamborghini put on crowd-drawing convoys of over 30 and 20 vehicles respectively. And the complementary luxury lifestyle elements continued with fashion shows from Camilla by Wattletree, JOG Swimwear and White Moon. To ensure VIPs arrived and departed in style befitting the show, BMW provided a courtesy car service, taking guests practically from doorstep to passarelle.

Karl Hamman, Singapore CEO of insurance provider QBE said he had thoroughly enjoyed his first year of partnering the Singapore Yacht Show: “The show has completely surpassed expectations and is a true testament to the growth potential in the industry.”

SYBAss Pavilion at Dubai Boat Show 2014 to reinforce UAE’s status as a hub for superyachts

February 18, 2014

As stated by the leading trade organisation Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss), the Middle East represents one of the most significant superyacht markets, with the highest growth as owners of luxury superyachts in the region continue to increase swiftly. The SYBAss Pavilion at the upcoming Dubai International Boat Show 2014 is expected to reinforce the UAE’s status as a hub for superyachts as yacht enthusiasts conduct business with the world’s best superyacht manufacturers.

The 22nd edition of Dubai International Boat Show organised by Dubai World Trade Centre, runs from 4-8 March 2014 at Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi, and will capitalise on the Middle East’s position as one of the world’s leading luxury superyacht destinations with superyacht ownership continuing to rise.

Robert van Tol, Operational Director, Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss), said: “While traditionally, Western Europe and North America are the major markets for superyachts of 40 metres and above in numbers, due to the many ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWI) in these regions, the penetration percentage of each area – the number of UHNWIs versus number of superyacht owners – provides a much more interesting insight into the markets.”

“The 2013 SYBAss Economic Report, developed in cooperation with Boston Consulting Group, reveals that the Middle East has the highest ‘propensity to buy’ a superyacht, at 48%. This means that nearly half of the UHNWIs in the Middle East are likely to own or buy a superyacht – higher than anywhere else in the world,” he added.

The largest yacht in the world mega yacht Azzam and around a third of the other 200 largest yachts globally are owned by the residents and nationals of the Middle East, according to a 2013 market analysis conducted by Boat International.

These figures are further validated as the superyacht industry plows full speed ahead, with 2014 slated to be the first year for an increase in superyacht builds since 2009, according to the 2014 ShowBoats International Global Order Book.

The Dubai International Boat Show will host 19 superyachts on water this year, including the largest boat to be displayed in the history of the show, which is built by Oceanco.

Key buyers and visitors will have the chance to network with some of the world’s most celebrated superyacht builders at the SYBAss Pavilion including Azimut-Benetti, CRN, Fincantieri, Heesen, Mondo Marine, San Lorenzo and Trinity.

With the Dubai International Boat Show slated to attract more than 26,000 visitors, including 5,000 High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI), SYBAss Pavilion exhibitors are eager to tap into the market. Luxury yachts were recently named the most popular luxury acquisition for billionaires, according to research organisation Wealth-X, which provides intelligence on ultra-high net worth individuals.

The recent World Ultra Wealth Report, based on findings in the  Wealth-X and UBS Billionaire Census 2013, states that the Middle East’s billionaires – with a combined net worth of USD354 billion – hold a higher percentage of total wealth than in any other region in the world. Forty percent of the Middle East’s Ultra High Net Worth wealth is held by the region’s 157 billionaires, compared to 28% in Europe, 22% in North America and 18% in Asia, according to the report.

Property consultant Knight Frank predicts that the number of US dollar billionaires in the Middle East will grow by 45% over the next decade with the HNWI population (individuals having net assets over USD30 million) in the region growing by 58% in 2022. The report also forecasts that the UAE HNWI population will grow by 53% in 2022.

“The Dubai International Boat Show has anchored the UAE as the key market for companies to showcase their dynamic superyacht products and services to leisure marine enthusiasts and HNWIs in the Middle East who value high standards of craftsmanship in their luxury purchases. Featuring the most advanced yachting design and technology from exhibitors and companies around the world, the SYBAss Pavilion is set to achieve new standards and inspire yacht enthusiasts of all backgrounds,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President of Dubai World Trade Centre, organiser of Dubai International Boat Show.

Demonstrating the far-reaching demand for superyachts as well as leisure marine craft and services, the Dubai International Boat Show is expected to draw visitors from more than 70 countries, and will host 840 exhibitors and brands from 50 countries, with an expected 35% growth in US companies confirming floor space this year.

World-renowned superyacht manufacturer Lurssen returns to the show for the 10th year and is among the makers of the world’s largest yachts, including the 180-metre mega yacht Azzam, which was delivered in October 2013.

In addition to being the largest yacht in the world, with a length of 180 metres, and with a top speed of 30 knots, motor yacht Azzam adds another record in terms of building time: less than three years from steel cutting following one year of engineering.

“Dubai International Boat Show is among the best platforms to showcase our latest models and inform visitors about the recent developments and innovations in shipbuilding. We have a strong track record of delivering yachts to our customers in the Middle East, where we will deliver three yachts between 66 and 104 metres long in 2014. The exhibition allows us to meet the demand for our luxury superyachts within the Middle East region, with a key focus on the rapidly-growing GCC market,” said Michael Breman, Sales Director, Lurssen.

Rob Luijendijk, CEO of AMELS is pleased with the ‘superyacht life culture’ of HNWIs in the region and beyond and revealed plans for the Dutch master shipbuilders at the show: “The Middle East has always been very important for us – some of the largest superyachts are owned by ultra-high net worth individuals from this region. We’ve experienced a significant increase in enquiries this year, and at the moment our yard is busier than ever with nine new construction projects and two refits.”

“The Dubai International Boat Show is the ideal platform to reveal our scale model of the new AMELS 272 yacht to the region, the largest Amels ever with an impressive exterior design from Tim Heywood,” Luijendijk added.

Beyond the SYBAss Pavilion, Dubai International Boat Show visitors can attend this year’s show sectors: Marina Display, Outdoor Display, Luxury Supplies and Services, Equipment Supplies and Services, Dive Middle East Exhibition (DMEX), and the Supercar Promenade.

Key returning partners include Italian luxury watch brand Officine Panerai as Supporting Partner, Mercedes-Benz as Official Car Partner, and ART MARINE as Marina Display Partner. Bombardier, the world’s only manufacturer of both planes and trains, is the exclusive sponsor of the LSS indoor pavilion.

The 22nd Dubai International Boat Show at Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi is open to trade visitors and the general public from 2pm – 9.30pm daily from 4-8 March 2014.

Sailing yacht REICHEL PUGH – NAUTA 155′ concept by Nauta Yachts and Reichel Pugh

June 17, 2013

The all-new sailing yacht Reichel Pugh – Nauta 155′ concept is a 47-metre large dimension sloop, developed by Nauta Design, in partnership with the world-renowned naval architects, Reichel-Pugh. The breath-taking superyacht Reichel Pugh – Nauta 155′ concept represents the largest sailing yacht ever designed by Nauta, while the 180-metre mega yacht “AZZAM” is their largest motor yacht project, as well as the largest private motor yacht up to date.

The preliminary studies, GAP, are in an advanced stage, being inspired by the request of a client for a super performing 150’. Water lines, appendages and sail plan were developed, as usual in the Reichel-Pugh / Nauta co-operation, by the California based Naval Architect office, while the general design, the outline, the deck and the interior design were developed by the Milan based design firm.

The hull is a last generation fast sailer with a very rearward max Beam. The water plane B max is conventional, not to increase wetted surface. But close-hauling, the boat is taking advantage of all the water line length with a reduced total wet surface. The summed area of the two rudder blades is similar to a single rudder blade one, but the efficiency is much higher since when the boat is leaning, the downwind rudder blade works vertically in a perfect laminar flow, as if the boat were horizontal on her lines.

The final result is a very aggressive profile with an extraordinary favourable LOA/Displacement ratio, thanks to high tech pre-preg carbon construction, outputting a light displacement of only 120T in dry conditions. To further improve the performances they adopted the lifting keel solution that allows to improve righting moment for super upwind and reaching performances.

The very high aspect ratio of the fin keel will considerably improve its lift and eventually will crucially participate to the high performance of the boat. The VPP is foreseeing a 16.5 knot speed on displacement and up to 26/28 knots on planning attitude.

The style of the Reichel Pugh – Nauta 155′ yacht concept is defined by a very sleek outline, where the deckhouse profile is kept very low and is fairly hidden by the gunwale, which is 1’2” (35cm) high over the deck, offering a safe foothold when walking in leaning attitude. The gunwale is also 1’ (30cm) thick forming at the same time a practical and comfortable seat while sailing and at anchor, using the handrail as a backrest.

Beside the elongated deckhouse windows, lightening the salon, the gunwale profile is cut and lowered for 13’1” (4m) to allow looking outside, and at the same time performing as large scupper for more safety. The deckhouse seems “floating” on the deck thanks to a darker inner spacer splitting it from the deck.

On deck the key point of superyacht Reichel Pugh – Nauta 155′ concept is the shape and the design of the stern. A wide low platform on the water level becomes a sea lounge for the owner whose master is just linked through an angled glassed companionway with sliding door.

The social life centre of the 47m luxury yacht Reichel Pugh – Nauta 155′  is the outside dining / resting area, easily convertible to the different functions of dining table, coffee tables, sunbathing area, all in the scale of a 155’ flagship.
