The ONE15 Marina Club, one of Asia’s finest marina clubs, proudly announces its co-presenting sponsors DBS Insignia Visa Infinite Card and W Hotels, and supporting sponsors Puteri Cove Residences & Quayside, and Lagardere Sports.
The ONE15 Christmas Boat Light Parade™ is an iconic event held at the Sentosa Cove, and is a ONE15 Marina Club initiative which underscores the Club’s commitment to growing the yachting lifestyle in Singapore. Forming a flotilla of approximately 25 to 30 boats of all shapes and sizes each night, the Christmas Boat Light Parade is a stunning display of Christmas-lighted themed boats which will set sail from ONE15 Marina Club each night around 7.45pm towards the Sentosa Boardwalk in an effort to win the top prize of “Best of Show”. Along the parade route, the festive yachts will pass by Siloso Beach, Fort Siloso, Resorts World Sentosa, and will finally be judged along the Sentosa Boardwalk in front of the HarbourFront and VivoCity area between 8.30pm and 9.15pmon both nights of the parade. The panel of judges will be selected from the event’s sponsors.
“It is indeed exciting to be a part of Singapore’s first and only boat light parade. It is certainly unique and is a true celebration in style,” said Mr Chew Yung Jin, Senior Vice President and Head of Card Products, DBS Bank. The DBS Insignia Visa Infinite Card, strictly by invitation only, bears the personal insignia of the cardmember on its card face. Designed to draw instant recognition to the bearer’s name, the Card places the cardmember at the centre of every experience.
“Come 20 November, we anticipate a marina glistening with a myriad of lights and colours, adding a new vibrancy to the delightful sight of the marina,” said Mr Stephane Fabregoul, General Manager of W Singapore – Sentosa Cove. A magnificent view frames every luxurious accommodation in the hotel, while signature W touches such as the delightful Munchie Box, enchanting mood lighting and a myriad of at-your-fingertips entertainment options promise never a dull moment.
Participating boats will be decked in a display of festive lights and decorations in the theme of “A Tropical Christmas on Water”. Based on a set of criteria, the boat with the most original and creative use of the decorations depicting the theme in each of the six categories will win attractive cash prizes totalling over S$18,000.
