Boat International Media and Yacht Club Costa Smeralda are delighted to welcome Fitzroy Yachts as Gold Sponsor of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2009.

Fitzroy Yachts has been acknowledged for the quality and innovation of their builds at the prestigious World Superyacht Awards, with 44m fast cruising sloop Salperton taking home the prize for Best Sailing Yacht in 30m to 44m size range in 2008.

41m classic sloop Inmocean is also selected as a Finalist at this year’s Awards, which will take place at London’s Guildhall on Saturday 16th May.

Rodney Martin, Managing Director of Fitzroy Yachts Limited anticipates a spectacular event in Porto Cervo and comments: “In partnering with Boat International Media as Gold Sponsor of the 2009 and 2010 Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, Fitzroy Yachts demonstrates a commitment to the superyacht world and the people in it.

We celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2007 with the delivery of the multi-award winning 44m Salperton, have since launched the 41m Inmocean and we are about to deliver Salperton’s sister ship – the 45m Salperton IV.”

Mr Martin continues: “We look forward to competitive racing on the water, great social events hosted by Boat International Media and the opportunity to discuss our capabilities with the superyacht owners, captains and leading industry professionals who will be joining us in Porto Cervo.”
