These yachts are available in Singapore for immediate purchase and delivery
The appeal of owning a yacht has skyrocketed since the onset of the virus. Borders remain closed, but we still have the luxury of escaping the concrete jungle to cruise around local islands, enjoy some watersports and even drop anchor and sleep under the stars. Not to mention, when we can finally travel again, owning a yacht (and jet) would be the safest way to get to your destination. Depending on requirements, it could take three years for a new build to be delivered. But fret not, there are a couple of new boats available in Singapore, which you can view and purchase immediately. Instant gratification has never looked this sexy.
F//Line 33, Fairline Yachts
Why we love it: This ultra-luxe sports cruiser can reach up to 32 knots in pure comfort. Despite its size – it’s just 10m long – there’s ample space for lounging with friends. Sit by the bow or head to the aft to enjoy a barbecue. There’s also a two-person cabin should you wish to spend the night. While it accommodates up to eight and sleeps four, we’d recommend having a maximum of six on board, lest it starts feeling a little crowded. For those with larger yachts, the F//Line 33 also makes a great tender.
Where she can travel to once international borders reopen: The east coast of Malaysia and private resort islands around Bintan and Batam.

Ferretti Yachts 720
Why we love it: Measuring 22.3m in length, and with a beam of 5.6m, this flybridge yacht is equipped to offer the comforts of a home. There’s much to love about it; the large rectangular windows that brighten the living and dining areas in the saloon; a 30-sqm flybridge that’s fitted with large sunpads, a grill and a table for eight. Then, there’s the four-cabin layout in the lower deck, which includes a full-beam master cabin.
Where she can travel to once international borders reopen: Following the monsoons, you can easily reach idyllic destinations in all three neighbouring countries: Phuket in Thailand, Anambas Islands in Indonesia and Perhentian Islands in Malaysia.

Seventy 8, Lagoon Catamarans
Why we love it: Catamarans are known for smooth-sailing on water, and this one adds a touch of class to it – thanks to its open spaces, pale teak flooring and complementing light grey furnishing throughout. Standout features include a retractable sunroof on the flybridge, sunken lounge in the fore, and skylights in the master bathroom. Apart from the VIP cabin and two guest cabins, you’ll find a 35-sqm owner’s suite that’s fitted with a king-sized bed, lounge, study, walk-in wardrobe, a large ensuite bathroom with his-and-hers sinks, and a hydraulic-operated platform which can be activated at anchor.
Where she can travel to once international borders reopen: Raja Ampat, Pacific islands, or The Maldives.

Princess 30M, Princess Yachts
Why we love it: It’s rare to see a relatively new superyacht (2017) on the market, and available for immediate purchase in Singapore. The 30.45m Princess 30M welcomes guests with a large saloon and separate dining area, and a feature wall separates the fully-equipped galley at port side and full-beam owners suite at the fore. Those with a larger family will also appreciate this yacht; apart from the four ensuite cabins in the lower deck, it comes with a gamut of water toys, including a waterslide, banana boat, jet board, an inflatable swimming pool, along with jet skis and seabobs.
Where she can travel to once international borders reopen: Explore the islands in Myanmar, The Philippines and even Japan.
