BOAT International hosted the Owners’ Club garden party event during the prestigious Palm Beach International Boat Show on 23 March. The event was supported by annual sponsor Bermuda Tourism Authority and event partners ABASK, Carla Guilhem Design and Ocean Alexander

The venue

The setting for this year's event was the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, a historic home and gallery and former home of celebrated sculptor Ann Weaver Norton. The two-acre property, which includes a botanical garden and collection of 250 rare plants, lies in the El Cid neighbourhood of downtown West Palm Beach on the Intracoastal Waterway. The event offered a unique opportunity for superyacht owners and industry professionals to come together in a relaxed atmosphere.

Guests gathered in the garden at sunset for a selection of drinks and canapés. A string quartet added to the elegant ambiance. 

Guests were greeted with a quintessential Dark ’n’ Stormy cocktail provided by Bermuda Tourism Authority, a signature Bermudian drink starring its famous local rum.

The setting

ABASK, the interiors mecca that specialises in a unique edit of handcrafted and one-of-a-kind pieces, created an elegant tablescape using elegantly mismatching china, glassware and cutlery, all with a colourful ocean theme. Each place setting was unique to each guest - what ABASK dubbed a 'soloscape'.
