Monaco Yacht Show 2017
So in a previous post, I attended a Luxury Lifestyle Event for Lexus which was primarily to showcase their new model, the LC500. I was invited not because I’m wealthy enough (!), but because my company developed the website and I had previously reviewed two of their cars; the Rx450h and the RC300h. While there I met a number of other companies involved in the event including The Cheshire Watch Company/The Diamond Suite and West Nautical.
West Nautical were running a silent auction to raise money for the Stoke Community Trust, which included a trip out on their €1,000,000 yacht called the Silver Rabbit in Cannes. I took a punt on it, and unbelievably won – I never win anything! The timings for the trip were tight, we could choose any date until the end of September 2017. Because we had recently booked an annual family vacation and had a few weekends booked up, the only date we can make was the last weekend in September. This just so happened to coincide with the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show!
West Nautical were great; they took us out for around 4 hours along the coast and we drank champagne and enjoyed the ride and views. They then dropped us off back in Monaco with passes to attend the Yacht Show. Of course, I couldn’t resist an opportunity like this so I filmed a short video which you can see below!
