The Official Kick Off Party for the 25th anniversary of the Yacht and Brokerage Show will be taking place on Miami Beach on February 13th. The invite-only event will be held at the Sunset Harbour Yacht Club as Collins Avenue transforms into a multi-million dollar showcase of the world’s most impressive vessels. Food and drink will be provided by George Stone Crab, Tosca, Machiya, Kitchen 305, and the swanky Alba Seaside Italian which is owned by celebrity chef Ralph Pagano.
The celebrated chef Pagano, who has worked elbow-to-elbow with veteran Chef Gordon Ramsay on FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen, will be offering Italian inspired hors d’oevres such as his Super Italian Paninis and Short-Skirt Meatballs, which are a compilation of short rib and skirt steak accompanied with ricotta cheese. The chef will also delight guests with his signature dessert of Nutella Cannolis. VIP guests can pair their delicious small-plates with refreshing cocktails, courtesy of Grey Goose Vodka.
The Official Kick Off Party, co-hosted by Steve Sheer of Show Management, Dana Rhoden of The Dana Agency, and April Donelson of Haute Living Magazine, will feature yachts exclusively designed by the internationally leading boat builders and brokerage houses. All together, the event will showcase roughly $500,000,000 of yachts. One of the extraordinary vessels will be the 110 ft. Horizon Mega Yacht “After Hours.” Exclusively for the event, “After Hours” will include aboard an Emrujo Wine lounge, an art gallery and a display of luxury automobiles such as Lamborghinis and Ferraris.
