    The Velocity Art Tour is in essence a sampling of the most delectable luxury brands on the market today that, simply put, can’t be missed. Whether you’re craving elegant yachts, collectible jewelry, vintage cars or stunning artwork, this event has it all. The event’s sponsor, Vintage Yachting Club, was originally created to provide distinctive yachting and luxury amenities to a select crowd of lavish enthusiasts. This exclusive group is now extending that life of luxury by hosting the Velocity Art Tour event and helping guests achieve the good life while on the high seas.

    The Velocity Art Tour is meant to unite high net worth consumers with respected luxury brands in the perfect setting, and caters to forging supplier and consumer relationships that create an individualized shopping experience and unmatched level of intimacy. Guests and featured business partners get to build contacts and expand repertoire through receptions, banquets, private viewings, exhibits and, of course, yachting. Through this combination of incomparable events, sponsors get unparalleled brand exposure to some of the most sought after client bases.

    The highlight of this 2013 schedule is the striking commuter yachts designed by RetroModerne Yacht Design. These luxury pieces were inspired by two 1930s yachts designed by respected American naval architect John L. Hacker. RetroModerne blends Hacker’s classic 20th century design with a sleek modern sheen to create a commuter yacht that is the embodiment of Yin and Yang in the boating world.

    It’s easy to understand why this event is labeled for “velocity art.” The tour features some of the most desirable brands in automobiles, motorcycles and boats, and to top it off, much of this motorized eye candy is vintage—dating back to the 1920s and 1940s era. Other high quality vintage collectibles on display include jewelry, watches, paintings, instruments and other high-luxe, must-have accessories.

    The 1930s ambiance may have something to do with it, but the Velocity Art Tour feels like a time capsule to a different world. Surrounded by vintage automobiles and classic yacht designs, you’ll feel completely immersed in the life of luxury. Just the way we like it.
