The Singapore Yachting Festival (SYF) is set to return 25-28 April 2024 alongside the two-day Southeast Asia Yachting Conference (SEAYC) 23-24 April 2024, both being held at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove. The annual event is expected to feature the latest boat models on display from the world’s best-known yachting brands - especially superyachts, following the addition of new berths and superyacht moorings at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove. The format of the annual event not only promotes the boats on display, but also the wider boating lifestyle activities which were a highlights of the 2023.

The second edition of SYF will be organised by ONE15 Events Management, a subsidiary of SUTL Enterprise, in collaboration with SG Marine Guide helmed by Wade Pearce, with the aim of bringing together more boating enthusiasts, lifestyle seekers, mid-range buyers and high net worth visitors - especially the young and affluent - who are considering a yachting lifestyle.

A prelude to SYF 2023 will be SEAYC 2024, a conference featuring an experienced line-up of speakers from across Asia Pacific, who will share insights on dynamic market trends, innovations in technology, and best practices, as well as facilitate networking sessions for local, regional and international professionals congregating in Singapore for the week long festivities.

Mr Arthur Tay, CEO of SUTL Enterprise, said: “This year, the inaugural SYF saw the participation of 9,250 visitors, 52 yachts and 72 businesses. As hosts, we were thrilled to receive such a huge turnout from the yachting community. The robust reception showed that there is a strong demand, passion and even curiosity about the yachting lifestyle in Singapore and in the region.” ? “We are looking forward to an even bigger and more exciting SYF in 2024, and are announcing the dates early so that everyone can mark their calendars. The longer runway will also enable us to deliver another successful festival and establish SYF as an important yearly affair in the yachting industry.”

Wade Pearce, founder of SG Marine Guide, said: “The level of interest in the first Singapore Yachting Festival was incredible, and took us by surprise. it showed that more and more people are keen to explore the boating lifestyle in this part of the world, especially from the local community. Boat ownership has become more affordable and better understood. We look forward to supporting ONE15 Marina to build on the success of 2023 in making the Singapore Yachting Festival the leading event in the region and an event for everyone.”
