My Yacht Group Superyacht Reception with Bank Vontobel AG

In partnership with the Ferretti Group, Vacheron Constantin, Perrier-Jouët, Martell Cordon Bleu and Davidoff Cigars

My Yacht Group's 2nd annual superyacht reception with Bank Vontobel AG took advantage of April's summery weather to host their top clients aboard a Custom Line Navetta 28 from Ferretti Group. Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors AG are a five-time brand partner at My Yacht Group's Art Basel receptions at Miami Beach, and have also collaborated with My Yacht Group at Monaco Yacht Show, the Monterey CA Concours d'Elegance, and USA F1 Grand Prix events, with a new event planned during San Francisco Fleet Week in October 2016.

The evening welcomed 50 of the firm's most important clients, some HNW guests, and members of some of the region's most prominent families. There were plenty of familiar faces and old friends among the guests, creating a relaxed and convivial atmosphere throughout.

On Board the Superyacht

Home for the festivities was an all-new 28.3m (92.1ft) Custom Line Navetta 28 from Ferretti Group. With unique exterior lines, Custom Line vessels are tailor-made to each owner's personal taste and style. This particular superyacht has had its on-board living spaces optimised, ensuring the owner the highest level of privacy. Guests explored the yacht's master suite and four cabins, and relaxed over its three decks, enjoying views of the Hong Kong skyline and the party below. The yacht's innovative design and layout create an incredibly spacious craft, and one that exudes the most luxurious Italian styling. Its combined floodable garage, diving platform and beach club is the largest available on a vessel of this size.

Signature Timepieces

Surrounded by luscious blooms, and shown by one of its master watchmakers, Vacheron Constantin presented a very special selection of signature timepieces from its Patrimony Perpetual Calendar, Historiques American 1921, Malte, Traditionelle Calibre lines, and more, along with vintage watchmaking machines, and unique artifacts.

Fine Wines, Champagne and Cigars

Continuing the Swiss theme, the evening featured some exceptional artisanal wines from one of the country's oldest family-owned and award-winning wineries, Jean-Rene Germanier, founded in 1886. The Swiss Wine Store of Hong Kong poured its Cayas, Petite Arvine du Valais, Syrah du Valais Reserve and its unique Champmarais Cornalin Reserve, (produced in very small quantities and only in good years), from a single vineyard of Cornalin, a rare Swiss indigenous grape.

Pernod Ricard was on board once again to pour some of its most prestigious wines and spirits. Guests enjoyed a tasting of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2006, along with its Grand Brut, plus Martell Cordon Bleu cognac, and Absolut Vodka. Guests were divided as to which of the bottles went best with the caviar: the Belle Epoque Rosé or the Absolut Vodka?

Riva Party Time

On the quayside, in between snapping photos of the yacht and fun selfies in the custom photobooth, guests enjoyed a fine selection of Davidoff Cigars including the Winston Churchill, Escurio and Nicaragua lines, while a DJ and live saxophonist set the mood. Those seeking a more intimate environment relaxed aboard Ferretti Group's timeless classic 33ft Aquariva Super.
