The third day of Singapore Yacht Show is well underway with a record number of high-quality visitors expected to attend over the weekend. Simpson Marine has already announced the sale of two boats at the show, and many other exhibitors have reported significant leads.
Mike Simpson, group managing director of Simpson Marine said: "We've already sold two boats within the first two days of the Singapore Yacht Show and we are pleased with the quality of visitors here at the show. It is heartening to see that our yachts have great appeal to the Singapore market. With a fabulous start like this, we fully expect to achieve more sales at the show this year than last."
Tony Hambrook, managing director of Alloy Yachts, which is jointly presenting the show’s largest yacht, S/Y Vertigo, said: “We have been very pleasantly surprised by the size and depth of the show and we look forward to coming back.”
This is Alloy Yachts’ first time exhibiting at Singapore Yacht Show, and Mr Hambrook said the team had seen a number of “qualified customers”.
Filippo Ceragioli, international marketing and communications manager of first-time exhibitor Rossinavi said: “Given the current global climate it made sense for us to participate in this year’s show. Over the past two days we have met some interesting contacts and we would like to come back.”
