Monaco May 30, 2016 – The Monaco Grand Prix, recognized as one of the most iconic social and sporting pageants in the world, and now in its 74thyear, saw My Yacht™ Monaco returning to the Principality to celebrate its 11th annual outing with an exclusive charity superyacht reception benefitting longtime charitable partner the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
The intimate evening was once again honored by the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, along with a delegation of distinguished guests. Other notable attendees included easyGroup founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, Hollywood actor and artist Billy Zane, NASCAR Champion Brian Vickers, Supermax founder Rocky Malhotra, former NBA player Jon Koncak, Rohullah Habibi of “Million Dollar Listing”, socialite and author Lady Victoria Hervey, model and actress Victoria Silvstedt, Olympians, Gold Medalists, and more.
An on board silent auction saw HSH Prince Albert II add his signature to two art works: “Excentric”, a large format photograph on aluminum by fine art photographer Johan Vandenberghe, depicting Peter Sellers’ (“The Pink Panther” series) Ferrari 500 Superfast, and “The Genie of Monaco”, a one-off sculpture of steel lacquered in Monaco colors by contemporary Monegasque artist Patrick Gibelli. 100% of proceeds from the auction benefitted the PA2F.
The international soiree saw global guests enjoying fine foods along with the finest wines and spirits: Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2006, magnums and double magnums of Garrus, Les Clans and the new Rock Angel from 2015 European Winery of the Year, Chateau d’Esclans, new Titomirov Vodka, that is alkaline (pH 8.88), gluten free, and maximizes hydration, plus luxury Neuschwansteiner beer that’s inspired by its namesake Bavarian ‘fairytale’ castle built by King Ludwig II.
This was the sophisticated beginning to a weekend of luxury hospitality and F1 race viewing aboard the 40m tri-deck superyacht M/Y Lady in Blue, moored in a coveted trackside berth on Quay Kennedy. High-performance Van Dutch tenders sped guests to and from the yacht daily, while a professional crew & staff ensured the highest level of service throughout as the cars raced past.
Each guest received custom, limited edition My Yacht Monaco gifts to take home along with an incredible weekend of memories from “the race that every driver wants to win.”
