Taken place in the fantastic Sardinia yacht charter destination – Porto Cervo, the recently concluded Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta was marked by a straight win victory for the Hoek-designed F-Class sailing yacht Firefly that has taken home the Boat International Silver Jubilee Cup. Superyacht Firefly could not have been beaten in Division A heading into Sunday’s final race, but a fourth and final bullet left her with a perfect score line, securing her overall victory at the event.
With faultless crew work for the entire regatta, the team on luxury yacht Firefly made each victorious race look effortless in all conditions. ‘We’ve been practicing for three seasons now and we stick together really well,’ said her owner. ‘We were very much aiming for our achievements, and I’m delighted not so much for myself but for the team who made it all happen. There’s much more to come! It’s brilliant that it was rewarded with a trophy but there was so much work done before and we’ve been getting better every time. It’s a very warm regatta, and I’ve really enjoyed the hospitality of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, and the organisers Boat International. It’s always lovely to be here and we hope we’ll get to stay here for as long as we can.’
The team at Hoek Design congratulates the Owner and crew of Firefly yacht for their superb performance and wishes them every success at the Palma Superyacht Cup later this month where they will compete along with 5 other Hoek Design yachts; luxury yacht Lionheart, sailing yacht Drumfire, charter yacht This Is Us, charter yacht Atalante and superyacht Heartbeat.
