Other celebrities including Pakho Chau, Shiga Lin and Zelia Zhong also showed up at the event.
“I’ve always loved to spend my time onboard with my family and everyone knows I am a big fan of sports car. That’s why I’m very honoured to be here to celebrate the Hong Kong product release of the revolutionary Azimut Grande 27 Metri and Apollo IE,” said Cheung.
Designed by Stefano Righni and Achille Salvagni, the all-new streamlined megayacht has a 7m beam and five cabins including a master cabin located on the main deck.
The use of carbon fibre on superstructure, deckhouse, transom, roll bar and hardtop allows volumes and surfaces to be increased in size while keeping the same weight.
Fitted with twin MAN 1,900mhp engines, she will reach speeds up to 27 knots.
Azimut Yachts Middle-East Area Manager Enrico Chiaussa said,” Asia is our crucial market. We are honoured to present and introduce here our Azimut Grande 27 Metri designed by world-renowned architect Achille Salvagni in Hong Kong.”
Managing Director of Azimut Yachts Hong Kong, Thomas Woo said, “Thanks all for joining us. We’re happy to bring the modern Grande 27 Metri to all of you.”
Azimut Atlantis 43’ and Azimut Grande 100 also shone at the Victoria Harbour at the party.
Representing Apollo Automobil, the flagship hyper-car Apollo IE combines the aerodynamic efficiency and mechanical grip of a GT1 / GT3 / LMP race car with the thrill of a V12.
“This is the first time for us to release Apollo IE in Hong Kong. We hope to share our passion for the art of automobile and anticipation on fighting for the best performance with all the car lovers,” said Norman Choi, CEO of Apollo Automobil.
