Swiss yacht sales, management and charter specialist Ocean Independence has announced the opening of a new office in Singapore. The new location will enter operation in May 2015.

Toby Maclaurin, commercial director of Ocean Independence, comments: “With the addition of a new Singapore office from May 2015 we add a strategic 17th location to our in-house network, offering clients a new point of contact in one of Asia’s most affluent areas.”

Singapore already has a sound base of high-net worth individuals and an enthusiasm for yachting culture which, “with our new partners who are already in the luxury accommodation and travel business, we will be building on to bring dependable and world class superyachting to clients in South East Asia”, Maclaurin concludes.

The company will launch the new office at the 2015 Singapore Yacht Show.
