Boat Asia 2009, a fast growing leisure boat and luxury waterfront lifestyle event, is to be held for the second year running at the world-class Marina at Keppel Bay in Singapore from 23 April – 26 April 2009.

Targeted at boating enthusiasts in and around the region, Boat Asia 2009 will bring to Singapore shores the crème de la crème of luxury motor boats, sail boats, catamarans and mega yachts from leading brands including Maritimo, Riviera, Marquis, Leopard, Macgregor, Fountaine Pajot, and Riva amongst others.

The event will also see the debut of boating masterpieces such as the Riviera 4400SY, SportsRiva 56, Moorings – Leopard 47 Powercat, Marquis 420 Sport Coupe, as well as the Fontaine Pajot Salina 48.

 For those who prefer to stay on land, speed boats, jet skis, sailing yachts, marine equipment and accessories, luxury resorts and properties will also be exhibited on land.

In line with the luxury lifestyle theme, guests will  be able to enjoy a wide array of activities ranging from yoga and dance performances to an on-water fashion show.

Those who are more inclined to take advantage of the tranquil waters off Keppel Bay will have the opportunity to indulge in free sailing trials offered by Keppel Bay Sailing Academy and RSYC Sea Sports Academy.

Visitors who are looking for some excitement at the show can test their skills at maneuvering RC sailboats during the “RC Sailing Competition”.

Specially invited high-net worth individuals will be able to benefit from exclusive access to the Island Suite, a VIP lounge with a panoramic view of the marina.

Helping the less fortunate will the focus of the Charity Gala Dinner which will be held at the Shangri-la Hotel on Friday, 24 April 2009. Following the success of last year’s charity auction, funds raised from this year’s Gala Dinner will be donated to The Straits Times (ST) School Pocket Money Fund, which helps an average of 7,500 children annually pay for meals at school, bus-fare or stationery.

Herman Ho, Managing Director, TMX Show Productions, said, “Despite the less than rosy economic outlook, the response we have been receiving from exhibitors has been very encouraging so far. We also have some beautiful boats making their Asian and Singapore debut at Boat Asia 2009, so visitors are going to be in for a visual and sensorial treat. Therefore, I am confident that this year’s show will be just as or even more exciting that last years”.

Visitors to Boat Asia 2009 will also gain complimentary entry to the Asia Dive Expo (ADEX) 2009, Asia's longest running dive exhibition which will be held concurrently with Boat Asia for the first time this year. Showcasing the latest in dive equipment, resorts and lifestyle products, ADEX is set to add a new dimension to this year’s boat show.

Boat Asia will be open between 13:00 - 21:00 (Thursday - Saturday) and 12:00 - 19:00 on Sunday.
