Set to take place from April 10 to 13, this year’s Singapore Yacht Show continues to gain international recognition, with a strong presence of an elite group of Superyacht industry participants. This year, they will be joined by leading service provider, Asia Pacific Superyachts.
Welcoming visitors to their stand will be yachting experts from regions throughout Asia and the Pacific, including: Borneo; Indonesia; Koh Samui, Thailand; Malaysia; Maldives; Myanmar; Phuket, Thailand; Philippines; and Singapore. The APS exhibit will be inside the tent – Stand B-25 North American Boat Services / Asia Pacific Superyachts.
Yacht and cruising information will be available for these regions as well as other APS regions, including New Zealand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Tahiti and Hong Kong. Many of the experts at the APS stand are Superyacht captains and all are happy to answer questions and share information of Asia – Pacific’s cruising and destination planning. The company invites registrants to stop by the APS stand for a cold beer and information of Asia – Pacific’s safe and fantastic cruising ground.
The Asia Pacific Superyacht Conference held prior to the Show will include Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia’s Captain Jimmy Blee, presenting Destination Indonesia ‘Why is it Worth It?’ The subject of the discussion panel with Captain Jimmy is an introduction to the cruising waters of the extensive archipelago of Indonesia on April 8 from 17.15 – 18.00. The session will be an overview of the highs and lows of cruising Indonesia; a follow on from his previously presented The Ying & Yang of Cruising Indonesia).
Blee looks forward to sharing his experiences, noting: “Indonesia is such a diverse country. Natural beauty and wonderful people mixed in with a historical bureaucracy which can test some visitor’s patience. The presentation will explore the good and the not so good aspects visiting yachts people and Captains can expect.”
Asia Pacific Superyacht Singapore’s Scott Walker coordinated the APS Stand at the Singapore Yacht Show, and notes, “As a member of AYSS and as a founding member of the Superyacht Singapore Association (SSA), my motivation and that of Asia Pacific Superyachts collectively, is to strongly support the Superyacht industry in Asia. From my vantage point in Singapore and that of my APS colleagues, many clients aren’t familiar with the area and have very specific needs and desires which are much different from what goes on here in Asia and the Pacific region. We want to share this input and information with our APS Stand visitors.”
