It’s eye-candy aplenty at the sixth edition of the Singapore Yacht Show, which kicks off Friday with vessels designed to appeal to the mega-wealthy.
The weekend-long event aims to be a platform to introduce high-net worth individuals to yachting professionals and owners in order to bolster Southeast Asia’s yachting culture.
The yacht industry hope to capitalize on the tourism potential of Southeast Asian islands, world-renowned for their beauty, as well as the region’s growing population of billionaires.
