Over 200 guests invited to the exclusive weekend event organised by AZIMUT YACHTS DEALER V Marine, in conjunction with some extraordinary partners, were treated to an experience characterised by luxury, fun and a passion for yachts. For their entertainment, guests were offered some unique experiences, including a gala dinner prepared by multiple award winning Starchef Carlo Cracco, exclusive test drives of the magnificent range of Azimut Yachts and the new Pirelli tenders and, finally, a trip to the Comsubin Military Base at Le Grazie, which guests were exceptionally allowed to visit by the Italian Navy to mark the occasion
Held on the weekend of July 7, 8 and 9 in the magnificent setting provided by Porto Venere near La Spezia, this was the third event organised by V Marine, Azimut Yachts’ exclusive dealer for northern and central Italy.
For Vincenzo Soria, Owner and Founder of V Marine with Valerio Tesei, Rendez-V represents an opportunity to share the pleasure of the sea with customers and enthusiasts. “Our intention,” he explains, “is no longer exclusively that of selling a specific product. What we want to do is offer our customers a new motoryacht-related entertainment experience. We are committed to welcoming them in an exclusive atmosphere with a unique family feeling, one that enthusiastically brings together the Customers and friends of the V Marine Owners Club. The people who contact V Marine join an exclusive club, one that unites lovers of yachting, sophisticated luxury and fun”.
In an exclusive arrangement, guests were given the chance to visit the Comsubin Military Base, which is usually out of bounds for civilians, to learn about the points of excellence of one of the Italian Navy’s most storied Units. The day was brought to a close by an entertaining barbecue “captained” by Chef Carlo Cracco.
At the event, joining the 25 sporty, sophisticated Azimut Yachts models, were the latest tenders in the Pirelli collection and all the thrill of the Seabob range. The nautical sector was also represented by stalwarts Volvo Penta and Raymarine.
Guests were welcomed in a series of elegant spaces, including the port promenade, which was transformed by the sophisticated, edgy furnishings provided by Talenti into a luxurious outdoor reception area, embellished with decorations by Fendi Casa, while Swiss International Air Lines fitted out an entire lounge to welcome guests.
Completing the experience were presentations of creations by Damiano Gioielli and Venini, with the elegant jewels by Rocca, in addition to Acqua dell’Elba fragrances, fabrics Made in Italy by APR, and carbon fiber masterpieces by Teknomonster.
Finally, Isaia and F.lli Tallia di Delfino worked together to offer Rendez-V Marine guests exclusive made to measure suits.
V Marine also took advantage of the event to present the recent partnerships signed with Italian community catering leader Elior and with S.Pellegrino, which created a special bottle dedicated to the event exclusively for V Marine. This is a privilege so far reserved for brands and personalities of the calibre of Missoni, Vogue, Bulgari and Pavarotti.
Numerous entertainment opportunities were organised throughout the weekend, including dinner on Saturday evening prepared by Starchef Carlo Cracco, followed by a DJ set by “Nick the Nightfly” from Radio Montecarlo.
Finally, Collina dei Ciliegi and Pommery Champagne organised a tasting of their products for guests, to raise a toast together to the success of the third Rendez-V Marine.
