SUMMER 2017 - MYKONOS, GREECE
THE 2017 OFFICIAL INAUGURATION OF THE RIVA PRIVATE DECK
IN MYKONOS BY EKKA YACHTS AND FERRETTI GROUP
On June 24th 2017, EKKA Yachts, exclusive dealer for Ferretti Yachts, Riva Pershing, Itama, and Mochi Craft brands in Greece, celebrated together with Ferretti Group the opening of the Riva Private Deck, at the illustrious Nammos Mykonos, at Psarou Beach, in the heart of the Mediterranean.
THE RIVA PRIVATE DECK
In an unprecedented collaboration, Ekka Yachts and Ferretti Group have created an elite hub for yacht and superyacht Owners in the Aegean Sea. The Riva Private Deck, an exclusive destination space located within Nammos Beach’s newly-launched ‘’Cabana Concept’’ features an office space, a resident team, lounge and bar, all located just a stone’s throw from the Nammos dock, and perfectly sheltered from the Meltemi: undoubtedly one of the world yachting scene’s most desired destinations.
THE LAUNCH EVENT
On Saturday, June 24th, Ekka Yachts and Ferretti Group hosted the official inauguration of the Riva Private Deck by welcoming over 200 invitees from all over the world to its new premises for a truly special evening. More than 20 yachts from all the Mediterranean representing the Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Riva and Custom Line brands were moored in front of the beach, enhancing with their unique beauty the breath-taking sunset of Mykonos. With customised cocktails, exquisite canapés and a specially assembled oyster bar on the beach, guests had the chance to enjoy Nammos’ renowned culinary excellence and impeccable service whilst admiring the crystal waters and arriving yachts.
UNPARALLELED SERVICE IN A UNIQUE LOCATION
From the beginning of the 2017 summer season until the end of October, Ekka’s dedicated resident team at the Riva Private Deck is available to offer clients a wide variety of services, including sales of new and used yachts, official Riva Boutique accessories, jet tenders and water-toys, technical support, and proposals on its crewed charter motor-yachts.
Visitors of the Riva Private Deck will have the chance to enjoy the true Mykonos experience, either through the adjoining exclusive cabanas with private outdoor jacuzzi, or by dining at the world-renowned “Nammos Restaurant by the Sea”.
Speaking about the unrivalled initiative, EKKA Yachts Managing Director Dimitris Kyriazakos explained how the idea for this initiative was born: “We wanted to create a ‘home’ for our exclusive brands in an unprecedented location, such as a Mykonian sandy beach. When the management of Nammos talked to us about their new Cabanas project, there was no hesitation, as there could not be a better setting than the majestic bay of Psarou in Mykonos.”
“Ferretti Group is happy to be partner of Ekka Yachts and Nammos in the heart of Cyclades, one of the golden destination for our Owners in the Mediterranean - stated Stefano de Vivo, Ferretti Group Chief Commercial Officer. “We are in ‘the place to be’: one of the most exclusive and beautiful Summer settings, together with our trustful dealer and through our most iconic brand, that in 2017 is celebrating its 175° anniversary: this is a true ensemble of luxury excellences.”
