Last Wednesday the 14th of August, with an exquisite cocktail on the Paseo del Mar of the Marina Casa de Campo, IBI Yachts celebrated the addition of Chris Craft to their portofolio of brands.
Flanked by the Caribbean sea, and row upon row of yachts of all shapes and sizes, IBI Yachts could not have chosen a better location for this truly nautical occasion. Guests were welcomed to the gathering by 2 ravishing models dressed is fashionable sailor-style dresses and who handed out cute boating theme bracelets to everyone as they arrived – a simple touch but something that proved so popular they actually ran out by the end and were somewhat “in demand” by those who arrived later in the evening!
As the sun started to set, the sky glowed upon the special occasion and invitees sipped on Perrier Jouet champagne, while enjoying a delicious selection of typically Dominican hors d’oeuvres. Classical Son music, perfectly in line with the essence of the Chris Craft style – reminiscent of 1950’s nautical elegance – only served to enhance the ambience.

As host and hostess, Mauro Caslini, President and CEO of IB Nautica and Alice Caslini de Moriconi, Owner and Director of Sales and Marketing at IBI Yachts were pleased to find Chris Craft enthusiastically received. “Guests were impressed by the beauty, practicality and above all price of this celebrated brand,” they told Casa de Campo Living. Also in attendance was Bastien Bonnet, Director of International Dealer Development for Chris Craft.
Chris Craft yachts offer all sea-lovers, a small, fast, sleek and beautiful option, perfect for the Casa de Campo yachting lifestyle. Chris Craft makes the ideal “entry level” yacht, with boats starting from 20 ft, enabling IBI Yachts to be able to offer the ideal yachting options for all clients.
For IBI Yachts, part of the IB Nautica Group, who have been based in the Marina Casa de Campo for more than 15 years and are the representatives in the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean to brands such as Atlantis, Azimut, Benetti and BlueGame, the occasion was a fitting celebration to welcome Chris Craft – yachts which we have no doubt will soon be seen all over the Marina Casa de Campo… and Palmilla!
