Marina Ibiza's clients go sailing on Racing Yacht Maserati, a world time-reference setter
This weekend a privileged few clients of Marina Ibiza and Maserati enjoyed the unique “Sail & Drive Experience. Marina Ibiza –Maserati”, when they were able to test drive the latest Maserati models and put the Italian firm's maxi yacht through its paces during the daytime, and enjoy the magic of Ibiza by night.
The participants went sailing on spectacular Racing Yacht Maserati, a VOR70 (70-ft. Volvo Ocean Race) that aspires to become the fastest in the world, along with its racing crew, headed by one of the best skippers, Giovanni Soldini. They reached 25 knots thanks to its high-tech 20-metres-plus hull, its carbon mast over 30 metres high and its canting keel.
They were also able to take a turn at the helm so as to experience high-level yacht racing at first hand. Racing Yacht Maserati will sail this month to the United States to beat the world record, after setting an exceptional monohull time-reference of under 11 days on the 3,884-nautical-mile route from Cádiz (Spain) to San Salvador (Bahamas) in February. The “Sail & Drive Experience. Marina Ibiza – Maserati” concluded with a most enjoyable dinner and show at the Lío, the cabaret restaurant which the Pachá Group opened last year at Marina Ibiza. The spirit of adventure that filled the day was transformed into magic and glamour by night in an unforgettable event which it is hoped to hold again very soon.
