SeaFair's Grand Luxe: Fine Art Yacht

Posted: Apr. 1st, 2008  |  By JustLuxe Team


Arts & Culture: The SeaFair's Grand Luxe is the world's first luxury-exposition megayacht. This soon-to-set-sail 228-foot vessel will display art, jewelry, and antiques from prestigious U.S. and European museums, art galleries, and jewelers. The exhibits will take place at ports in 34 affluent U.S. cities along the eastern seaboard and the Gulf Coast of Florida beginning this June. The premiere will be in Greenwich, Connecticut. The massive three-tiered $20 million Grand Luxe, is currently undergoing ship modifications, and marketing adjustments and enhanced dealer services for 2008 are also in the works.

The Grand Luxe will not be a cruising or passenger ship, as all events will occur portside only. Attendance to these prestigious affairs will be by invitation only through the SeaFair Society, the exhibiting galleries, the Gala Preview Charity partners, or the SeaFair partners. However, an invitation request may be submitted via the SeaFair's website. If accepted, membership to join the society also is extended.



Designer previews will precede each official showing. Exhibitors of fine art and jewelry applying to participate in these showings include ACA of New York, Cohen & Cohen of London, the Galerie du Post Impressionnisme of Paris, and Eckert of Naples. Twenty-eight exhibitors will participate in these lavish showcases. Cohen & Cohen of London will exhibit its Chinese porcelain and Oriental art collections. The full roster of exhibitors will be announced soon.

The SeaFair's Grand Luxe will also be available for private events, offering two five-star quality restaurants, open-air caviar and champagne lounges, and cocktail areas in conjunction with the exhibitions.Check out the SeaFair Society's website for details.
