The Rendezvous Returns to the Principality of Monaco
June 24, 2010
Today at the heart of Port Hercule in The Principality of Monaco, thirteen magnificent superyachts lined-up along the privatized Quai des Etats Unis for the largest ever edition of The Rendezvous in Monaco. Almost 700 metres of superyachts combined makes this the most significant collection of yachts ever to attend this exclusive event.
Four days of a fun-filled on the water and social programme began this morning with a small private Luncheon on board Feadship’s 65m M/Y Trident exclusively for owners. Bernard d’Alessandri, General Director of the Yacht Club de Monaco presented these special guests with temporary membership to the Yacht Club de Monaco.
The Rendezvous opened officially with a Champagne Welcome Cocktail hosted by Tony Harris, CEO of Boat International Media, Bernard d’Alessandri of Yacht Club de Monaco, Theo Hooning, Secretary General of SYBAss, Jim Simon, Executive Vice President of Oceana and Michel Bouquier, Director of Monaco Tourism who kindly sponsored the Welcome Cocktail onboard the magnificent 75m S/Y Phocea.
Tony Harris, CEO of Boat International Media commented: “We are so happy to be here and re-launch The Rendezvous under the ownership of Boat International Media. It’s a pleasure to be standing upon as famous a yacht as Phocea, looking as though she’s just come out of the yard. Enjoy the yachts, enjoy the champagne and enjoy the company.”
Guests over spilled into the SYBAss Design Gallery and along the dock to hear the welcome speeches, following which entertainment kicked off with live music by the Gypsy Queens, sponsored by Chopard. In true tradition, The Rendezvous Yacht Hop allowed proud owners to welcome guests on board their private yachts for drinks and hospitality as the sun set over Monaco. Excited to return to Monte Carlo, guests continued into the night at the iconic nightspots around the Place du Casino and later onto Jimmy’z.
