J Craft and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars hosted guests for the inaugural Riviera Runabout event in July. Taking place over the course of a weekend between Monaco and Saint Tropez, more than 30 guests enjoyed a relaxing and luxurious programme. This included the chance to test drive the full range of Rolls-Royce cars, from the Phantom to the Ghost, as well as sea trial of J Craft Torpedos.
After a welcome breakfast at Café de Paris, Casino Square, Monaco, guests departed in the waiting fleet of Rolls-Royce cars on a wonderful road route that took in some of the incredible sights of the Cote d’Azure, including the medieval town of Eze. After an hours driving, the party arrived at Beaulieu where the J Craft fleet was waiting, as well as a number of customer owned Torpedos. With everyone on board, the boats headed down to Cannes to rendezvous for lunch onboard the super yacht Element. Moored between Île Sainte-Marguerite and Île Saint-Honorat, guest enjoyed a sumptuous lunch followed by the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear water, relax or explore the area by J Craft.
To get the blood pumping again, the party took off in the Torpedos for a sprint down to Saint Tropez after lunch. At around 45 knots, the journey took just over an hour, the sight of an entire fleet of speeding J Craft boats attracting much attention from passing helicopters and super yachts along the way. The party arrived in Saint Tropez in time for sunset cocktails – the perfect end to the day. Rolls-Royce were once again on hand to provide elegant passage back to Monaco.
Speaking in Saint Tropez, J Craft’s Johan Attvik said, “It was another amazing event and I would like to thank our friends at Rolls-Royce for joining us on the Riviera. A natural synergy exists between us, with our products complementing each other perfectly. Our thoughts have already turned to next year’s Riviera Runabout and how we can further enhance the programme. We are looking forward to being joined by more J Craft friends and owners in the South of France.”
J Craft will be exhibiting at the Monaco Yacht Show (21-24 September) and can be found in the Tender Show area on stand TS10.
