Every year, usually the first week in December, 70,000 contemporary art patrons gather in Miami for Art Basel spending millions of dollars buying artwork, meeting artists and friends, and of course, partying with the rich and famous. When the sun goes down, the world’s most interesting people come together aboard the 165-foot, Miss Moneypenny V for the 9th annual charity superyacht reception in partnership with Bank Vontobel, a private banking and investment management group headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. The invitation-only, guest list hosts an assortment of international “ultra-high-net -worth” individuals, known as the 1% of the 1% where millionaires become billionaires, ranging from business leaders and celebrities to heads of state and art collectors.
The guests of honor, the world famous Estiatorio Milos four-time astronaut and three-time Space Shuttle Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria, shared the future plans of Axiom Space offering individuals the opportunity to become Axiom Space Tourists training as astronauts, launching into space and spending ten days aboard the International Space Station; truly a life-defining adventure.
The exclusive “Floating Party” featured the charity partner, YachtAid Global providing humanitarian aid, disaster relief and conservation to coastal communities around the world. With generous on-board pledges and a silent auction featuring items from Axiom Space, Dream Hotel Miami, Gallery 221 and YAG superyacht captains, the fund raising was successful.
The guests came together not only for the fine dining, signature cocktails and live entertainment, but mostly for “Connecting the World’s Most Interesting People”, the trademark for My Yacht Group. Conversation flowed as freely as the champagne and caviar.
