After being a predominantly indoor show for many years, Boat Asia 2004 will enjoy a on-water venue for the first time in the show’s history. Mr. Warren Buckley, Chief Executive Officer of Suntec Integrated Media (SIM) said, “No better mooring could be chosen for Asia’s leading boating event. We’re excited about coming out onto the water since it opens up new opportunities to display boats in their natural element. We believe it’s a great occasion for checking out the best of what’s on offer in marine leisure today and confidently making a purchase,” said Mr. Buckley.


Said Tammy Gouldstone, Senior Project Manager of Boat Asia 2004, “Our message is that boating can be suitable for anyone, so we want to encourage those who merely dream of the marine lifestyle to ‘go for it’ and make Boat Asia 2004 their destination!”


According to Mr. Buckley, “Asia is still more or less underdeveloped as a boating region despite the large potential of this wonderful cruising destination. I am confident that Boat Asia will be one of the contributing factors that will help to put Asia more firmly on the boating world’s map.”
