Marina Ibiza launches with Maserati the ´Sail & Drive Experience. Marina Ibiza-Maserati´

On 30th June and 1st July owners of moorings at Marina Ibiza, along with some privileged clients of Maserati Barcelona, will enjoy a unique experience going sailing on board Racing Yacht Maserati and test driving the Italian firm´s exclusive models, one of which is being presented for the first time in Spain before the first models reach the showrooms.

Seven Maserati models in all will drive around Marina Ibiza. In addition to the GranCabrio Sport and the GranTurismo Sport, the two-seater Stradale and the GranCabrio will be on show in the Marina Ibiza Boulevard. Racing Yacht Maserati, a 21-metre maxi which in February set the first time-reference for the monohull category between Cádiz (Spain) and San Salvador (Bahamas), will be moored on Marina Ibiza´s main pontoon.

This fascinating experience will be led by advanced driving instructors and by the yacht´s racing crew, with support from Marina Ibiza´s team of professional sailors – so it promises success and excitement. Taking to the waves on board speed-optimized Maserati and test driving some of the Italian firm´s most iconic models will be as exciting as enjoying the facilities of the Mediterranean´s most exclusive and modern harbour, whose Concierge Service will be available to guests. A spectacular dinner will be laid on to end the experience on a high note – until next time, which the organizers hope will be soon.

Marina Ibiza: More than a marina, a lifestyle
The Mediterranean´s most exclusive and modern harbour is visited by super- and megayachts of up to 120 metres. The magnificently rigged, sleek and graceful craft which glide in each year make the harbour a splendid sight. With a Concierge Service providing the services of a personal assistant to the harbour´s clients, it´s the go-to marina for all who sail to Ibiza in search of a very special lifestyle.

Maserati Barcelona: Europe´s most iconic Official Dealership
Maserati has opened in Barcelona its flagship showroom for Spain: 4,500 square metres showcasing the latest Prancing Horse (Ferrari) and Trident (Maserati) symbol models.
The new showroom is part of Cars Gallery Barcelona, Spain´s biggest official high-end vehicle site, totalling 5,500 square metres. This site provides an exclusive end-to-end service for its customers: showroom, sales and after-sales, the best trade service, workshop, panel beating and merchandising.

In addition, Cars Gallery Barcelona provides a fully secure and private storage and maintenance service by the day for clients with Premium vehicles, as well as a range of complementary services personalized for each client.

Maserati vehicles: Italian excellence in automotive engineering
Guests at the event will have the chance to be amongst the first to test drive the new GranTurismo Sport, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show with enhanced features and restyling which accentuates its sporty lines.

Racing Yacht Maserati: First to set a time-reference
Maserati is a spectacular 21-metre VOR70 (Volvo Ocean Race) yacht that previously participated under a different name in the 2008-2009 round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race. It features a carbon mast over 30 m. high and a canting keel. It has spent three months in dry dock shedding some 10 percent of its weight in a bid to become the fastest in the world. In February Giovanni Soldini skippered Maserati over the 3,884 nautical miles from Cádiz, Spain to San Salvador, Bahamas in under 11 days, setting the first North Atlantic Challenge time-reference in the monohull category.

For both Marina Ibiza´s and the Italian firm´s clients it will be a real adventure to join Maserati ´s highly-trained crew as they feel the pulse of the wind and set the sails.
