The legendary F1 Monaco Grand Prix is over for another year, with Sebastian Vettel taking the title and extending his championship lead over Lewis Hamilton by 25 points. Teammate, Kimi Raikkonen, joined Vettel on the podium for a Ferrari 1-2 finish, while Red Bull Racing driver, Daniel Ricciardo, took his second podium for the season with third place.
As can be expected of such an internationally acclaimed sporting event, the Monaco Grand Prix 2017 delivered its trademark electric atmosphere, roaring crowds, and adrenaline-inducing entertainment as the cars tore through Monte Carlo’s meandering city streets. As always, the best place to watch the F1 action was from a luxury yacht docked in Monaco’s prestigious Port Hercules. Over one hundred of the world’s most spectacular superyachts lined the marina for the race, enjoying exceptional viewing as the F1 cars screamed along the port, before flying around the Rascasse bend.
The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most exclusive events in the luxury yachting calendar, with the top yachts and Monaco berths extremely sought after for private and corporate event charters. A corporate yacht charter on a superyacht is the ultimate way to impress VIP clients with a sophisticated race-day event held on the yacht, with guests catered for by the yacht’s private chef and crew. Nothing spells ‘success’ like a corporate superyacht charter.
Corporate Yacht Charter
There are many events at which a corporate yacht charter can showcase your brand with maximum impact. Hosts can hold meetings onboard, enjoy elegant lunches on deck, and make an impression on industry leaders with glittering cocktail parties on the sundeck. Companies can treat their valued clients by inviting them to stay onboard, and also accommodate key staff, thereby avoiding logistical complications that can arise from corporate functions.By chartering a luxury yacht, companies effortlessly secure an event venue, meeting space, and private chef and staff as well as accommodation of exceptional luxury.
At static superyacht charters, such as those that will be available for the upcoming Cannes Lions event, companies also have the opportunity to heavily brand the superyacht with their banners, flags and bunting – thereby increasing their brand visibility and making a strong impression on potential clients attending the show.
Chartering for the Cannes Lions 2017
The Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity 2017 is the next major event for corporate yacht charters, taking place between the 17th and 24th of June. Featuring a star-studded line-up of over 600 speakers – including Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Ian McKellan, and Alexander Wang – the festival celebrates the best of global creativity, innovation, and collaboration across the branded communications, entertainment and advertising industries. The Cannes Lions Festival will be held at the famed Palais des Festivals, and, as in other years, the creative brands that everyone will be talking about will be chartering yachts in the port. Once you’ve experienced the Cannes Lions Festival, enjoy a French Riviera yacht charter to explore exotic destinations with colleagues and clients.
