Sailing superyacht 131-foot (40-metre) La Numero Uno, the first Perini Navi vessel ever built, has been announced as the host and venue for the opening night cocktail party.
Organisers have promised that superyacht owners and their guests, captain and crew will enjoy charming Thai hospitality in a relaxed and sociable environment on and off the water during the exclusive event, which runs from 19-21 January 2018 at the Sala Phuket Resort, Mai Khao Bay.
Long-time ASR Cup organiser Gordon Fernandes said, “We are very excited that La Numero Uno will to be the host yacht for this year’s Rendezvous Cup opening night cocktail party. She is the first yacht to be constructed at the Italian high-class shipyard Perini Navi, which became world-famous for its elite superyachts, such as The Maltese Falcon.”
The luxury yacht was completely refitted in 2014 and can accommodate 12 guests in five staterooms. She has all the latest in technology, accommodation and toys for a world-class sailing experience.
“Unlike other superyacht events and regattas, the ASR Cup is a very private gathering and all about having a jolly, fun atmosphere where participation is encouraged, but not required – where it is about having a great time and putting the sails up in hopes of winning the cup. We look forward to welcoming all to the largest on-water gathering of superyachts in Asia,” concluded Fernandes.
The rendezvous will close with a dress parade of the stunning sailing yachts and accompanying motor yachts, followed by a gala dinner.
