Los Angeles, April 28, 2011 – My Yacht™ Monaco will welcome a host of luxury brand partners aboard at its annual 3-day hospitality and race-viewing event during the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, May 27th – 29th, 2011.
Asprey will showcase a broad selection of fine jewelry, sterling silver bar ware, leather goods, watches and cufflinks throughout the weekend. Spyker Cars, returning for a second year, will display their all-new Aileron supercar at the 6th annual My Yacht™ Monaco Friday night party. Prince Albert II of Monaco is expected to attend. Weekend guests will also have the rare chance to do a “hot lap” of the closed Grand Prix circuit in the Aileron, with a professional driver at the wheel, between racing sessions on Saturday and Sunday.
Exclusive champagne house Luxor will be pouring its 24k gold-flecked Luxor Brut premium champagne and will also entertain guests with a “Gold Emotion” show, painting a model from head-to-toe in gold leaf. Guests will have the chance to receive temporary gold leaf ‘tattoos’ for the evening.
Returning for a third year, premium wine maker Chateau D’Esclans will be pouring a selection of fine rosé, white and red wines for party and weekend guests including its popular Whispering Angel.
Through a partnership with Parton Yachting, My Yacht™ Monaco weekend guests will be transported via high-speed water tenders – using both Wahoo and Goldfish boats – directly to and from the yacht over the weekend. These race-spec boats will also be giving ‘hot laps’ outside the harbor, water conditions permitting.
Nicholas Frankl says, “Given the testing economic climate, securing luxury brand partners, even for events at the highest level with the most exclusive guests, is challenging. However, it is clear that the strength of the My Yacht Monaco platform, and its proven track record of mixing experiential marketing with a guest list of high net worth individuals and influencers, resonates with brands who seek an exclusive way in which to communicate their message to current and potential clients.”

About Spyker Cars:
Spyker Cars is a manufacturer of highly exclusive hand-built super sports cars. In 1914 Spyker merged with the Dutch Aircraft Factory N.V. From that moment on the Spyker logo consisted of an aircraft propeller and a wire wheel. The axiom “Nullatenaciinviaest via” – for the tenacious no road is impassable – has held true for Spyker ever since.
The racing and aviation heritage of the early cars has been carried over to the contemporary Spykers, their design being heavily influenced by airplanes and aerodynamics. Their uncompromising engineering developed for racing. Hand-crafted in the same tradition as the earlier Spykers by the best craftsmen of our time using bespoke materials only. Built with passion for the most passionate drivers, for those discerning connoisseurs who do not just buy a car but have one built for them, to their exacting specifications.
Spykers are the ultimate statement of individuality: a creation of timeless beauty in the form of a state of the art technology package with spectacular performance. Every Spyker is as much an individual as its discerning buyer. For more information, go to: spykercars.nl
