Monaco September 28, 2016 – My Yacht® Group returned to Port Hercule to host its exclusive charity reception on the opening night of the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show aboard the newly refitted 55m superyacht M/Y Turquoise. 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.
Following six years of partnerships at Art Basel Miami Beach, two years at Art Basel Hong Kong, plus events together in Monterey, CA and Austin, TX, this was the debut Monaco event for presenting sponsor Bank Vontobel AG, with board executives and clients aboard. Zurich-headquartered and family owned since 1924, Vontobel specializes in active asset management & tailor-made investment solutions, providing responsible and forward-looking advice.
A long time exhibitor at the show, Crestron – the world-leader in the design & installation of control & automation technology for over four decades – showcased its products aboard and gifted guests with its device-charging Smart Powerbank, as well as the device-finding ‘Tile’, thus ensuring continuous charge and connectivity throughout the evening, and beyond! Franck Dubarry timepieces, in a world premiere, added some extra sparkle, with the eponymous watchmaker on hand to discuss the collection that includes the Revolution, CrazyBalls, and CrazyColors series.
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. Set to open its new Clubhouse in November, and currently accepting membership applications, it will create a new and exclusive meeting place in the heart of Gustavia while promoting social and sailing activities on the island and beyond.
The Riviera’s hottest 5-piece strolling band, Garcons Chics, provided a playful accompaniment as guests enjoyed fine foods and wines. Caviar Franceserved 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.
A television crew shed some light – literally – on subjects Nicholas, and twin sister Annabelle, as comedienne and presenter Katherine Ryan, filmed a ‘day in the life’ special for a new 6-part series on self-made entrepreneurs. The segment is set to air on Channel 4, one the UK’s leading broadcast networks, this autumn.
