We are pleased to announce that both Luxaviation and MTU have confirmed their return to this year’s Singapore Yacht Show as sponsors. As leaders in their respective sectors, each company represents the excellence that the Show continually strives to present to visitors.
Having become a valued partner to the Show in 2014, following the opening of its offices in Singapore and the introduction of its services in Asia, private jet operator Luxaviation will be returning once again with exclusive offers to bring special guests and VIPs to Singapore for the Show.
“We are thrilled to be back at the Show in 2015. As a business aviation operator, our services complement the luxury lifestyle of the yachting world and thus the Show is ideal for showcasing our services to the wealthy private individuals of South East Asia who are attracted by new lifestyles choices.” says Patrick Hansen, co-CEO Luxaviation Group.
APYC sets sail for world class
MTU will once again be a major support to the event, as title sponsor of The Captains’ Lounge – Powered by MTU and co-sponsor of the Asia Pacific Yachting Conference, both located in the ONE°15 Marina Club adjacent to the Show.

With complementary food and beverages available to invited crew and industry professionals, there will be extended opening hours to allow for greater educational and networking opportunities, all made possible by the hospitality of MTU.
