The evening did not disappoint! A curated guest list of international and local superyacht owners and users, plus select Monaco residents, renowned industrialists, Olympians, F1 drivers, artists, and more mingled aboard while several production elements elevated the party above the usual MYS broker-laden affair.
Twelve models, brought in especially from Milan, were bedecked in timepieces and stunning high jewelry valued in excess of €25m, including the Festa Delle Principessa necklace in platinum with 1 cushion cut 180ct Burma sapphire and 28ct of diamonds. Creating a Carnivàle-style fashion show, the models danced through the yacht, led by strolling band Odd Socks International, with a finale on the helideck, surrounded by guests. Longtime partner Vontobel joined once again with board executives and top clients, as well as Bermuda Business Development Agency with a government delegation and VIP guests in attendance, as well as the Commodore, board and founding members of the Gustavia Yacht Club. Vast amounts of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé, Titomirov Vodka alkaline vodka, plus double magnums of 3 types of Château d’Esclans rosé (Whispering Angel, Les Clans, Garrus), plus a Perlita Caviar station, kept guests in a festive mood, and everyone was gifted a signature scent Bvlgari candle upon departure.
Presented at the show by IYC, the SOLAS compliant 78m, 3,000 tonne M/Y Legend attracted an inordinate amount of attention thanks to its unique layout
and capabilities. Winner of the “Best Rebuilt Yacht” at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards, it sleeps 26 guests in 13 cabins including an owner’s suite on a private deck, a 16-person waterfall-fed Jacuzzi, plus a 3-man submarine, a 14-seater cinema, a Balinese spa, numerous water toys, and a helideck.
Raising both awareness and funds, a portion of the proceeds from the evening benefitted MYG’s longtime charitable partner, Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
