Singapore, Singapore is the city address for the hottest luxury destination. Which may also be the reason superyachts are so popular in this luxurious city. The second annual Singapore Yacht Show is attracting worldwide attention and the new home for the most wanted luxury yachts. Think in terms of the bigger the most wanted.

Some of the highlights include Feadship’s brand new 45 metre Helix, which is making its debut in Southeast Asia; the 45-metre powerhouse Vantage from Palmer Johnson, and Sanlorenzo’s stunning 35.5-metre Onyx. The Westport 130 Sea Bear, formerly owned by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, is also on display and is now available for Singapore charter. The 40 metre superyacht is managed by Aqua Voyage, the nautical arm of KOP Hotels & Resorts, and forms part of its fleet of luxury yachts. Other debuts also include MY Phatsara and Singapore-built 39m Megaway both presented by Northrop & Johnson; a Cranchi 64 presented by Hong Seh Marine; and celebrating Year of the Dragon is the Torpedo, by J-Craft.
