large superyachts already based in Asia. At SYS, Amels will unveil
the brand-new 55m M/Y Papa to the region for the first time.
Only just delivered to her owner earlier this year, Papa’s exterior
is designed by Tim Heywood, and offers guests the ultimate
in luxury with a beach club at sea level and a sun deck with a
cinema, 8-person jacuzzi and a Teppanyaki bar.
Presenting a brand-new cruise experience in the pristine
East Indonesian Archipelago, Aqua Blu will add a compelling maritime
statement to the line-up at SYS 2020. A long-range explorer

Komodo National Park, Spice Islands and Raja Ampat, Aqua Blu
recently underwent extensive refurbishment bringing the 15 cabin
vessel up to world-class cruising specifications.
Another major superyacht builder ever-present at SYS since
its very first edition, Westport Yachts will introduce their brand new
38M raised pilothouse motoryacht, an Asia premiere that retains all
of the Westport standards of quality yacht construction, finish and
design but advances the use of space and cruising capabilities.
One of SYS’ founding partners; Simpson Marine will be making
its tenth appearance at the Show, presenting its largest line-up to
date with more than 15 yachts across the Sanlorenzo, MCY, Aquila
and Lagoon brands. Unveiling several Asia premieres, the Simpson
Marine fleet will include the Lagoon 46, Sanlorenzo SX88 and the

box concept that perfectly represents Sanlorenzo’s impressive
design capabilities, maximising yacht spaces by expanding and
rethinking traditional layouts.
Epitomising the best of British manufacture and design,
Plymouth-based Princess Yachts will return with one of the largest
on-water exhibits. Making its Asian debut, the Y78 is a brand-new
model known for her flexible deck layout with a walkthrough foredeck,
U-shaped seating and a sunbathing area, whilst her flybridge
aft has space for free standing furniture or can accommodate a
crane and a tender.
Renowned Italian yacht builder Ferretti Yachts will introduce
two Asian premieres at the Show, the Ferretti 670 and 720, both
products of a partnership with esteemed architect Filippo Salvetti.
Measuring 20.24m and 22.3m respectively, the yachts offer amenities
typically found on larger vessels and boast an aerodynamic
exterior revel in clean shapes and sinuous lines.
“It’s been phenomenal to witness the continued growth of
the Singapore Yacht Show and the development of the industry
here over the last decade. As we gear up for the 2020 edition,
both old and new partners are coming together to offer the most
dynamic programme yet – we’ve already confirmed several major
superyachts, and all the production builders are bringing bigger
line-ups than ever,” says Andy Treadwell, CEO and Founder of the
Singapore Yacht Show.
Working with a variety of partners to add new dynamic
dimensions to the next decade of SYS, the 2020 Show will be more
family-friendly, offering truly immersive and educational experiences
for those looking to discover the yachting lifestyle - and a more
sustainable one, at that.
Families are invited to join a series of child-friendly activities
and workshops to keep the kids engaged throughout the day.
Showcasing a wide range of lifestyle exhibits, and activities such
as upcycling workshops, health & wellness programming, interactive
art displays and hands-on fun for all the family, the newly
created programme sets out to further enhance the existing visitor
“SYS 2020 will offer a host of dynamic experiences in our new
Lifestyle Pavilion, developed for our visitors to be both entertained
and educated. With a focus on a cleaner ocean, the Show will spark
conversations about the need for industry stakeholders to tackle
sustainability, addressing the issue of plastic waste in the ocean
and also introducing interactive art displays, exhibits and upcycling
workshops,” adds Treadwell.
