Miami, November 28, 2021 – After a ‘virtual’ hiatus in 2020, the renowned art week sees My Yacht® Group (MYG) return to Miami to host another in its exclusive “Night Before” Astronaut dinner series, plus its 10th charity superyacht reception, with an incredible selection of returning and new partners aboard.
Following a decade of impressive growth in the USA, and celebrating 10 years as title sponsor, Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors AG, the globally operating financial experts with Swiss roots, will host key clients and art world guests, with board executives in attendance.
MYG continues its series of curated “Night Before” private Astronaut dinners with Axiom Space, at which it has hosted (U)HNW guests from London to Monaco, Los Angeles to St. Bart’s, and more.
2-time astronaut Mike Massimino will speak to guests of his 23+ days in space, that included over 30 spacewalk hours, while on Hubble Telescope missions STS-109 and STS-125. The first person to tweet from space, he is now a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University, an NY Time best-selling author, and had a recurring role playing himself on “The Big Bang Theory.”
Soon-to-be 5-time astronaut Commander Michael Lopez-Alegría is in-the-midst-of an intense training schedule ahead of his historic launch at the helm of Ax-1. February 21, 2022, sees three private astronauts venture with him on the world’s first 10-day private mission to the ISS. MLA, plus two of those astronauts – Eytan Stibbe and Mark Pathy – will attend MYG’s charity yacht reception.
The 10th charity superyacht reception will be aboard 40m M/Y ROCK13, fresh from a total 2020 refit. With luxurious accommodations for 10 guests in 5 cabins, a full-beam owner’s cabin sits forward of the light-filled saloon on the main deck. Featuring stunning interior design throughout, the yacht is for charter in and around Miami Beach.
Aboard as a new partner is Ocean Residences Development and its show-stopping M/Y Njord. “The finest address, everywhere in the world”, Njord is the world’s largest private super yacht and one of its most exclusive clubs.
With renowned yacht builders Meyer Werft and a team of preeminent superyacht, naval architecture, and interior designers on board, the 118, 2- to 6-bedroom exclusive residences, including 14 duplexes and 2 triplexes with private elevators, will range from 1,475 to nearly 9,130 sq. ft. Available in 20 different configurations, residences start at $8M, with the cost of ownership maintenance to be 4-5% of the purchase price.
The yacht’s 13 decks will be home to a discerning global community of like-minded individuals sharing a passion for travel, adventure, discovery, and philanthropy. Equipped to undertake scientific and oceanographic research as she circumnavigates the globe, her remarkable amenities, including a Chenot health and wellness center, inflatable marina with a vast range of watertoys, 6 restaurants, and an observatory, plus curated on- and off-yacht experiences, will bring an enthralling new world to life.
New partner ZERO-G is the only commercial opportunity on Earth for everyday people to experience true “weightlessness” without going to space! Aboard its specially modified Boeing 727, G-FORCE ONE®, weightlessness is achieved by doing aerobatic maneuvers known as parabolas. ZERO-G’s passengers can float, flip and soar just like Astronauts do in space. The Zero Gravity Team will embark on its next weightless flight on December 1st, out of Miami-Opa locka airport.
MYG is once again raising awareness for its chosen charity partner, YachtAid Global (YAG) and highlighting its incredible relief efforts. YAG provides humanitarian aid, conservation, and disaster response leadership, with work encompassing global programs, logistics management and consultation for superyachts which want to contribute to the world around them.
The evening will feature a DJ and live music, hand-rolled cigars, and exquisite food, plus libations from several long-term partners: the world’s number one rosé Whispering Angel, plus custom Enchanted Rock and Peach vodka cocktails from Rebecca Creek Distillery.
A distinguished guestlist is set to include Art Basel VIP Collector’s Circle members, Institute of Contemporary Art Board of Trustees, Founders and Patrons, plus international art collectors, artists, gallerists, superyacht, private jet and supercar owners, and international and S. Florida (U)HNW guests.
