An Exclusive Performance By International Star Lionel Richie Alongside 6 Premieres of Ferretti Group For Private Preview.

In kicking off the season of the most important international Boat Shows, Ferretti Group and Yacht Club de Monaco for the fifth year consecutively serenaded shipowners and specially invited guests in a one of a kind, magical and exclusive “Private Preview” appointment. This year, Lionel Richie – a pop legend with over one hundred million records sold to date, made the event a memorable one, enchanting the selected audience of the evening over the backdrop of extraordinary Monte Carlo alongside 25 yachts representing all the brands of the Ferretti Group. 

Lionel Richie, honoured with the Hollywood Walk of Fame star in 2003, Grammy winner, played all of his greatest hits, one after another “All night long”, captivating the audiences. From “Easy” to the timeless “Say you say me”, winner of an Oscar and a Golden Globe as best original song, from “Hello” to “Truly”, just to name a few of those hits. 

“Lionel Richie’s career is sprinkled with many incredible songs, listening to them and dancing one after the other moved us and our guests,” said Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “It’s the best start to the boating season ahead of us: our resounding boats are about to be presented at the most important boat shows also this year, we’ll be able to win the hearts and minds of shipowners and enthusiasts of beauty”.

It was a great pleasure for our president HSH Prince Albert II to host Tan Xuguang, president of the Weichai Group, and an audience of international personalities.All the most passionate boating enthusiasts were here this evening to celebrate the opening of the season’s big meetings, on the eve of the Cannes Yachting Festival, Monaco Classic Week and the Monaco Yacht Show”, said Bernard d’Alessandri, General Secretary of the Yacht Club of Monaco.
