Heading to Porquerolles !
FOUNTAINE PAJOT held its 3rd Motor Yacht Owners’ Meeting on the island of Porquerolles from 7 to 10 May 2015.
In all twelve Trawler and Motor Yacht catamarans were present. The fleet of owners explored the island and its surroundings with their families and friends, enjoying the island’s magnificent moorings.
The weekend was interspersed with photo contests and a Rally co-organized by the Neptune Yachting Moteur magazine, visits to the nature reserves and special evenings at the Mas du Langoustier. It came to an end with a preview of a concert to be performed at the “Jazz in Porquerolles” Festival.
The whole range was represented among the catamarans taking part, from our first models, such as the MARYLAND 37, to the latest models, with the Summerland MY 40 LC, the CUMBERLAND MY 47 LC, and the QUEENSLAND MY 55, not to mention the all new MY 37.
“Welcome drink on the Yacht Club lawn” :
To get the 2015 meeting off to a great start, the Fountaine Pajot team decided to hold the opening evening event on the Porquerolles Yacht Club lawn, with all the participating owners, as well as the journalists present for the MY 37 sea trials.
With tapas, local drinks, and a beautiful sunset on the harbor, all that you could ask for to present the weekend program and get to know each other in a friendly atmosphere was united.
“The Neptune Rally” :
The Fountaine Pajot team worked in collaboration with the Neptune Moteur Yachting magazine, the event’s partner, to organize the Neptune Rally. A magnificent day at sea was had by all. It was divided among cruising and mooring off some of the island’s stunning sites.
Departure: We headed westward in the direction of the first “Grand Ribaud” marker, and then the “Jaune Garde”, mooring on “La Plage d’Argent” (Silver beach) for lunch. We returned to sea at around 2 pm and headed eastward to the Mèdes rocks, the island’s quintessential historical rocky outcrop, then moored on Plage Notre Dame, considered to be Europe’s finest beach.
Mas du Langoustier evening :
This day ended with a fabulous evening at the Mas du Langoustier, with a wine tasting by the Domaine de L’île organized by Sami Aburabi, followed by a dinner by the Chef Julien Le Goff and the Pâtissier Valter Ribiero.
To bring the evening to a close, our team showed a preview of the demo-film for the new Motor Yacht 37, before the prize giving to the five winners of the photo contest, in collaboration with the Neptune Yachting Moteur magazine, the VOLVO PENTA brand, PORTS TOULON PROVENCE, as well as the TINTAMAR V.I.P bag brand.
