Guests arrived by Denison Superyacht Tender Service to enjoy champagne and a tour of Matchpoint, a 49-meter Christensen yacht. The dinner was held during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Guests also enjoyed cocktails, a silent auction and live music by Strolling Musician. Support for the event was provided by platinum sponsors Bentley, C1 Bank, Marshall Islands Registry and Bradford Marine.

The newly launched SeaKeeper Drifter also was on display.
