Boat Asia 2009, one of the region’s premier leisure boat and waterfront lifestyle events, got underway on Thursday afternoon with a stellar line-up of boats on display.

This year Asia Dive Expo is being held concurrently with Boat Asia at the world-class Marina at Keppel Bay in Singapore.

Something for Everyone

 Fashionistas can enjoy an on-water fashion show featuring the latest Spring/Summer 2009 swimwear collection from renowned Italian label, La Perla, as they sip on martinis from the floating Grey Goose bar.

Car enthusiasts can get up-close with the all-new Audi Q5 which will be available for test drives exclusively at Boat Asia. The Audi Q5 will be displayed within a floating iceberg. Utilizing the car configuration display within the centre, visitors can customize the internal and external components of the Audi according to their individual preferences.

Visitors can also enjoy a range of exciting fringe activities which include scintillating belly dance and band performances, beer-drinking contests, an “RC Sailing Competition” as well as sailing trials offered by Keppel Bay Sailing Academy and RSYC Sea Sports Academy.

And the Boats...

Aside from an on-land display of speed boats, sailing yachts, and marine equipment and accessories, Boat Asia will also showcase an on-water display of close to 50 luxury motor yachts, sail boats and catamarans from world-renowned boating brands such as Grand Banks, Ferretti, Fountaine Pajot, Leopard, Marquis and Riva amongst others.

This year’s Boat Asia show will also see the Asian and local debut of exciting new luxury boats. These include the sleek Macgregor 26, the innovative Four Winns SL262, the elegant Princess 42 Flybridge, and the contemporary Riviera 4400 Sports Yacht, which emerged as the “2008 Australian Boat of The Year”. The classy Fairline Targa 38, voted “2007 European Powerboat of the Year”, will also be showcased at Boat Asia for the first time.

“Over the past few years, waterfront living has really caught on in Singapore and the region. Not only are people choosing to live closer to the water but many of them are also beginning to see the joys a nautical lifestyle can bring. Moreover, given the current economic climate, now is actually a very opportune time for first-time boating enthusiasts to buy their first boat and for those looking to upgrade to bigger and better boats. There’s no better place than Boat Asia to get some good deals, “ said Herman Ho, Managing Director, TMX Show Productions.

The event, being held 23 - 26 April 2009 is open from 1:00pm - 9:00pm between Thursday and Saturday and then 12:00 - 7:00 pm on Sunday.
