The Singapore Yacht Show will return this April, with an incredible line-up of the most luxurious superyachts, boats, international lifestyle brands and superyacht industry leaders.
Organisers have just announced that the 69-metre Australian-built M/Y Saluzi, the largest permanently based yacht available for charter in Asia, will be on display at the Show.
Recently refitted, the former luxury cruise ship, is the product of remarkable engineering and vision, designed to offer a truly unique floating vacation home for exploring Asian waters.
Named after the mystical warhorse of Tang Dynasty Emperor Taizong that, according to legend, despite being wounded in battle by an arrow amidst fierce fighting, the valiant super-powered horse unflinchingly delivered the Emperor back to safety.
The artwork of the horse on the exterior of the yacht has been specially created by the artist, Li Jiwei as a modern interpretation of the ancient tale and in his own words Saluzi is “an expression of both East and West, a blending of spirituality and materiality.”
She will be represented for charter at the Show by Yachtzoo, and tours of the yacht during the Show can be arranged by contacting the brokerage company.
“The Yachtzoo team is delighted to return to the Singapore Yacht Show after a successful first participation last year. This year we will present the 69m M/Y Saluzi for charter as we also believe in the future of South East Asia and the Indian Ocean as new and attractive destinations,” said Kirsten Ringsing, Founding Partner of Yachtzoo Monaco.
Inspired by the notion of an uber-chic floating Beach House, Saluzi is a truly modern sanctuary for family and friends that combines both the space and privacy essential for creating a relaxed atmosphere in which to recharge and reclaim time.
Saluzi’s 32 crew on board takes care of up to 32 guests who are lodged in cabins that are divided into 2 Masters, 7 VIPs and 7 Deluxe Cabins, spread over 1650sqm of guest space across 5 decks that also comprise landscaped terraces, spa, karaoke bar, nightclub and an open air cinema.
The result of the Miami based yacht designer Luiz de Basto and his team’s work is stunning. “The briefing for the Saluzi interior team was, from day one, to think different, to be original. Although we did not know exactly where this would lead, the owners knew exactly what they did not want. They did not want to play it safe, they were not afraid to take risks. It was a good time for us to be creative, to get inspired”, says de Basto who will also be present at the Show.
With an aluminium hull and superstructure, Saluzi features an ultra-modern stabilisation system to reduce roll motion effect and ensure ultimate comfort throughout one’s charter vacation. With a cruising speed of 12 knots, a maximum speed of 16 knots and a range of 1500 miles, she is the perfect combination of performance and comfort.
