Striking Yachts, Superyachts And Catamarans on Display

Ferretti 780, part of the Tai He Ban collection – a special new range with design customisation aimed specifically at the Asian market.

Recently crowned winner of the 2017 World Yachts Trophies’ “Most Achieved” Trophy in the 80’ to 125’ category, it features the use of carbon fibre, a construction choice that allows volumes and surfaces to be increased in size, while keeping the same weight maintaining excellent levels of dynamic stability.

The Australian and Thai company Multihull Solutions will also be unveiling French-built Fountain Pajot MY 44 – a spacious brand-new motor catamaran powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 350 pod drives delivering exceptional handling over a 2,000-nautical mile range.  This motor catamaran has a combined living and accommodation space of over 50 sqm, more than most inner-city apartments.

Sunreef will debut the Sunreef Open 40 in Asia – a dynamic, sporty day catamaran with a focus on fast cruising and lifestyle. Naturally balanced, this yacht doesn’t require stabilising systems and provides a fast and safe navigation experience.

Joining this year’s Asian premieres, include Absolute 58 Fly – the perfect union between ergonomics and technology, ensuring low consumption, manoeuvrability, silent movement and reliability; and Maritimo 51 – a genuine long-range luxury motor yacht for those looking for space, comfort and power.
