In preparation of the 17th Asia Superyacht Rendezvous to be held in Phuket, Thailand, the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup has announced that the very first sailing yacht from Italian shipyard Perini Navi, 39m/127ft LA NUMERO UNO, will host the opening night party.
S/Y LA NUMERO UNO (ex.CLAN VI) was built in 1983 and last refitted in 2017 in preparation for her public appearance at the start of 2018. The interiors are the work of Studio Sforzi and while cruising she has room aboard for 12 guests across 5 cabins, who will be served by a crew of 6.
“We are very excited that LA NUMERO UNO will to be the host for this year’s Rendezvous Cup opening night cocktail party,” ASR Cup organiser Gordon Fernandes commented. “She is the first yacht to be constructed at the high-class Italian shipyard Perini Navi, which became world-famous for its elite superyachts, such as S/Y MALTESE FALCON.”
The invitation-only gathering draws professional and amateur sailing yacht owners, captains and crew from around the world for a celebration running from the 19th-21st of January 2018. This year, sailing and motor yachts above 21m/70ft are invited to attend the event and participate in the races.
“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 ASR Cup!”
