5 Superyachts to see at the Singapore Yacht Show

From the Norman Foster-designed Ocean Emerald, to the custom-built Benetti Ambrosia, this year’s line-up is set to impress.

1.       Ocean Emerald

A celebrity in the yachting scene, Ocean Emerald starred in the remake of 1991 cult classic Point Break. The 41-m contemporary motoryacht was built in 2006 by Rodriquez Yachts and features timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating throughout for an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. Designed by Lord Norman Foster, the superyacht sleeps up to 12 guests in five rooms and is also capable of carrying up to nine crew on board. With a cruising speed of 14 knots and a top speed of 18 knots, the vessel also boasts a range of leisure and entertainment facilities that’s ideal for socialising and entertaining.


2.       Ambrosia

One of Asia’s biggest superyachts, the massive 65m Ambrosia was custom-built in 2005 by Benetti Yachts in Viareggio, Italy. The yacht’s traditional elegant lines, six deck levels and sleek exterior lines make it a standout. Ambrosia offers accommodation for up to 12 guests and 20 crew members. The top deck features a helicopter pad and outdoor sundecks with a spa pool, while the upper deck is fitted with entertainment and VIP staterooms. At the stern is the world famous “Stargate” dining room. Water activities are well-catered for in two huge garages (that come with a retractable roof), which houses a Vikal limousine tender, a Tresco tender and two Kawasaki jet skis.


3.       Charley

The 46.6m custom-built motoryacht Charley was built by Echo Yachts in Australia last year. Her elegant exterior and interior styling are the work of New Zealand’s LOMOcean. The interiors have been designed to comfortably accommodate up to five guests in three cabins and two twin cabins, whilst also carrying 12 crew. Powered by two Cummins 2,700hp diesel engines Charley comfortably cruises at 16 knots to travel a maximum range of 3,000 nautical miles. This superyacht is also the largest-ever vacuum-infused and GRP vessel ever built in Australia.


4.       Princess 32M

With her elegant profile and unparalleled sea-keeping abilities, the 32M by Princess Yachts sets new standards of style, sophistication and personalisation. Its spacious exterior and interior shows attention to detail, thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship, while its full-beam master suite and VIP cabin have been created to deliver opulent comfort. The garage on board houses two jet skis, with the main tender stowage being on the hydraulic swim platform or up on the aft flybridge deck.


5.       Azimut Grande 95RPH

Making her Asia debut at Singapore Yacht Show, the Azimut Grande 95RPH features an innovative exterior design by Stefano Righini, with interiors created by Studio Salvagni Architetti. The vessel is also equipped with a flybridge that comes with a 10-seater dinette, a mini bar, spa pool and sunbathing area, while its stern boasts a garage with pivoting platform to house a 4m tender jet. Internally, the superyacht fits up to 10 guests in five cabins, including a master cabin on the main deck and four VIP cabins on the lower deck. Its twin MTU 16V2000 M84 diesel engines powers the vessel to a top speed of 26.5 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots.
