To accompany the summer season, YACHT STYLE issue 35 celebrates sailing and everything that surrounds it. Indeed, during a season synonymous with breaking away with family and friends, what better occasion to pause, enjoy and cherish what Mother Nature has given us: sea, sun, wind.
In the new issue, YACHT STYLE features “Sails Over Asia” that takes a closer look at the development of sailing in the Asia-Pacific region. The feature explores how local governments are aiding the local heroes to excel at international competitions such as the ongoing Olympic Games. From launching various initiatives to encouraging investment in infrastructure and events, we get a chance to learn more about sailing in Asia. Rounding up the feature, is the now well-established year-round Asian regatta circuit.
An exclusive first in Asia, YACHT STYLE 35 also explores the ROYAL HUISMAN Sea Eagle that was recently sold to a Taiwanese owner. In addition, readers will be treated to the different facets of what sailing units have to offer, with the high performance ALIBI 64 that was built in a Thai shipyard. The coastline of the Philippines is explored, on board a JEANNEAU Sun Odyssey 409, while the DUNIA BARU, that is a 51-metre phinisi, brings us the scenic Komodo Island.
Looking ahead, YACHT STYLE issue 36 will showcase, for the first time, the top 100 Superyachts in the Asia-Pacific and review all the happenings from the international yachting season. The upcoming issue will be released during the highly anticipated luxury lifestyle event, SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS. Set at the Raffles Marina, the event will be held over four days from October 20 to 23.
The event promises an interesting line-up that includes fine art, luxury timepieces, yachts, vintage cars, delectable gastronomy, champagne and luxury charters. A highlight of the event, is the tall-ship ROYAL ALBATROSS which will sit on the water alongside other big names in the region’s yachting industry. For those who can’t wait to get behind the wheel, more than 30 units will be available for sea trials, sale and charter.
