Vicem Yachts holds Bahamian rendezvous


Vicem Yachts recently held its first rendezvous event as a fleet of 12 yachts carrying 75 guests converged last month on the Old Bahama Bay Luxury Oceanfront Resort on Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas.

A variety of water and land excursions, along with a traditional Bahamian barbecue kept guests busy during daylight hours, while a "White Hot Vicem Nights" white-dress party, complete with junkanoo band, and the "Turkish Treasures" poolside dinner rounded out the evening celebrations Friday and Saturday.

Broker Dave Mallach was recognized by the company for his years of service and achievement with a $10,000 donation made in his name to the Bodaire School in Haiti.

"At Vicem, we are not just owners, brokers, service technicians, managers or presidents, we are a family," Vicem CEO Alberto Perrone Da Zara said in a statement. "And this rendezvous was a wonderful way for us to get together as a family and celebrate Vicem's past, present and future."
