March 9, 2017, London – My Yacht® Group is featured on the new Channel 4 series that sees Canadian comedienne, writer and presenter Katherine Ryan hosting and asking the question originally made famous by the late Joan Rivers, “How’d You Get So Rich?”
The 6-part, 30-minute series sets out to discover how self-made entrepreneurs achieved their success, with Ryan lending her charming brand of tongue-in-cheek humor to each episode. Filming with twins Nicholas and Annabelle Frankl in Monaco during the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, in episode 2 (“From Plumbers to Yacht Parties”, airing on Channel 4, Monday 13th March at 10pm GMT) Ryan gets a whirlwind tour of the glamorous Principality, and goes behind the scenes of My Yacht’s exclusive reception aboard the 55m superyacht M/Y Turquoise.
As the cameras rolled, guest of honor HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco joined the festivities mingling with a global selection of HNW guests that included yachting ‘royalty’ Peter Lürssen, easyGroup founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, Lornamead founder George Jatania, Turquoise owner and Knox House Group founder Douglas Barrowman, plus VIP guests of Monaco Private Label, and more.
Presenting sponsor Bank Vontobel AG, with board executives and clients aboard, was joined partners Crestron, that gifted guests with its device-charging Smart Powerbank, as well as the device-finding ‘Tile’, plus Franck Dubarry with a selection of timepieces, in a world premiere, that added some extra sparkle to the evening.
Sir Stelios chatted with guests about his latest venture, the all-new, not-for-profit Gustavia Yacht Club on the Caribbean island of St. Barts, while the Riviera’s hottest 5-piece strolling band, Garcons Chics, provided a playful accompaniment as guests enjoyed fine foods and wines. Caviar France served generous portions of its premium, sustainable Siberian Sturgeon from an ice sculpture by award-winning sculptor Mario Emegee, while Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2007, Martell Cordon Bleu cognac, plus magnums and double magnums of Chateau d’Esclans Rock Angel 2014 and Les Clans 2013, were the perfect libations for the balmy evening that saw a portion of proceeds benefitting My Yacht Group’s chosen charity partner, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
“How d’You Get So Rich” debuted on Channel 4 on Monday 6th March, 2017. My Yacht® Group, Nicholas and Annabelle Frankl will feature in Episode 2 “From Plumbers to Yacht Parties”, airing Monday 13th March, 2017 at 10pm GMT.
