Ocean Club Concierge – an exciting new luxury concierge service – was unveiled at a glittering cocktail event on Sydney Harbour in late February to overwhelming support.
Over 130 yacht owners and special guests attended the exclusive function at the Empire Lounge in Rose Bay to celebrate the launch of the new service that can take care of anything you desire. From travel styling, private dining and chauffeur services to personalised gifting, there is nothing that cannot be accommodated.
A pair of shining McLaren GTs provided by major sponsor McLaren Sydney greeted guests as they arrived for the sunset soiree overlooking Rose Bay, the venue for the following day’s spectacular season opener for SailGP.
Befitting the occasion, cocktails, champagne and caviar were de rigueur. Simon Johnson Providore provided the caviar bar experience complete with premium Absolut Vodka Elyx served in stunning Waterford Lismore Diamond shot glassware.
Three different types of fresh caviar, all sustainably sourced from Europe, were presented in a parallel tasting by the expert caviar team – Oscietra caviar, which is produced by the Russian sturgeon; Oscietra Gold that is also produced by the Russian sturgeon but presents with a rare shade of gold; and a superb Siberian caviar.
Ocean Media Managing Director Hillary Buckman explained that the Ocean Club Concierge originated from the plethora of requests she has received over more than 16 years of involvement in the luxury yachting scene.
“People look to Ocean Media to support their lifestyle in a comprehensive way. With the Ocean Club Concierge service, we can make that dream come true, bringing back your most precious resource: your time.”
“As an international service, no matter where you are in the world, we can take care of anything you desire,” said Hillary Buckman.
By definition, concierges are highly skilled professionals who add real value to your life by taking care of life’s details – those little luxuries, special moments and personalised requests that make life memorable (or just easier).
Ocean Club Concierge can provide whatever your desire. From exclusive experiences and services to restaurant bookings, private dining and catering to accommodation and travel. In fact, the list is endless. Concert tickets, private charters, taxi and chauffeur services, flowers and gift concierge are just the beginning. There is nothing that cannot be accommodated.
A membership-based exclusive service, all plans come with a dedicated Lifestyle Manager who communicates directly with the client on a one-to-one basis. Providing the ultimate in personalised service, the Lifestyle Manager take cares of each client’s individual needs.
The launch evening was declared a success thanks to the support and participation of Elite Sponsors McLaren Sydney, Burgess and Sydney Sea Planes, who each featured their signature marques; Ocean Partners Benetti Yachts, Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard, Opsis Designs, Harbour Classic by Whitehaven and Coral Sea Resort & Marina in-conjunction with the 2020 Australian Superyacht Rendezvous; as well as charter sponsor Sydney Harbour Yacht Charter.
