The world-class Marina at Keppel Bay in Singapore will be the venue for Boat Asia 2008, a premier leisure boat and luxury waterfront lifestyle event, to be held from April 24-27, 2008.
Exclusivity will be the order of the day with specially invited High Net-Worth Individuals (HNWIs) being driven to and from the event via luxurious Audi limousines. Upon arrival, they will also enjoy personalized tours of the show and exclusive access to The Island Suite at Marina at Keppel Bay. Specially equipped with Miele appliances, The Island Suite will offer all-day first-class service and fine cuisine. Visitors to Boat Asia will also be able to enjoy a fashion-show on the “high-seas” which will see models sashaying along floating platforms showcasing the latest creations from the Island Shop. In addition, they will also have the opportunity to take complimentary boat rides provided by SunSail on a two-hourly basis.
Boat Asia 2008 will feature an exciting array of boating products and merchandise as well as high-end luxury products. Boating enthusiasts and potential boat owners will get to view the latest on-water displays of luxury motor yachts, sail boats, keel boats, catamarans and mega yachts by about 100 exhibitors from around the world.
This year’s show will see the Asian debut of the Hanse 400, voted “European Yacht of The Year”, which delivers an exciting fusion of breathtaking sailing performance with a cruising orientated interior. The Salina 48, produced by the world-renowned Fountaine Pajot, which features a luxurious space and unsurpassed seaworthiness, will also be making her Asian debut. In addition, the Chaparral Sunesta 264 will also get adrenalin pumping with its revolutionary Wide Tech hull design which caters especially for active water-sports enthusiasts, along with the Zodiac Medline III, the flagship of Zodiac’s Medline fleet and the personification of comfort and style.
Those who prefer to stay on terra firma will also be treated to a showcase of speed boats, jet skis, sailing yachts, marine equipment and accessories, luxury resorts and properties as well as high-end consumer lifestyle products from brands such as Audi, Miele, Island Shop and Philips Consumer Lifestyle, just to name a few.
Herman Ho, Managing Director, TMX Show Productions, said, “We have added many fine touches to this year’s show to give the event a more exclusive feel. Visitors will feel special and yet at home irrespective of whether they are a HNWI in search of a good investment opportunity or a boating enthusiast browsing for the best deals. These combined with the exciting line up of boats will definitely make this year’s event the best yet.”
