On June 21, Ferrari of New England and MarineMax of Newport offered connoisseurs of fine Italian machinery the experience of a lifetime. One of our most memorable events to date, ‘Italy on the Harbor’ was a select gathering of cars and boats held at the Newport Yachting Center in the sailing capital of Rhode Island. Stunning views, spectacular food and a gourmet coffee bar combined with beautiful weather to yield a social occasion that will be remembered for years to come.
In true prancing horse fashion, Ferrari of New England brought a collection of stunning Ferraris to this event. The incredible automobiles in attendance included the one-off “Yachting Edition” Ferrari FF with teak trim, a yellow 458 Italia complete with special “Triplo Strato” three-stage paint, a California, a 458 Spider and the incomparable F12berlinetta. With wonderful support from Ferrari North America, our clients experienced personalized test drives of the Ferrari FF on the cobblestone streets of Newport. With guidance from their very own professional drivers, participants enjoyed a first-class driving experience.
While the Ferraris took center stage on land, the Azimut flotilla took to the waves. This informal sea trial offered our clients an unforgettable experience and sublime views of picturesque Newport Harbor. Azimut Yachts displayed four of the most elegant examples of their collection. These included the 45, 54 and 70 ft “Flybridge” models, as well as the 55S sport yacht. Each one represented the essence of true Italian design with sleek, beautiful and modern lines, plus stunning on-water performance.

Also in attendance were the 2014 Dream Ride Experience team organizers from Bozzuto’s, Inc., and the Hometown Foundation. Their involvement served as a prelude to the upcoming Dream Ride event, to be held on August 23-24 at the Farmington Club in Farmington, Connecticut. The weekend includes motorcycle and car cruises, a modern and classic car show and other events that support New England Special Olympics chapters. We cordially invite our fellow motoring enthusiasts to attend this great event and support an incredible, worthwhile cause.
