Since almost everyone goes barefoot on yachts, experienced crews work hard to minimize the presence of breakables onboard. But how do you stay safe while making sure that your uberprivileged guests feel pampered?
The secret, for countless A-listers like Steven Spielberg, Valentino, Roberto Cavalli, and Prince Albert II and Charlene of Monaco, is a new kind of acrylic glassware that looks and feels like crystal, but doesn’t break.
Developed by Italian designer Mario Luca Giusti, it’s so stunning that even seasoned yacht-setters are often surprised when they hear it’s not crystal. And paired with the latest in unbreakable dinnerware, they make an irresistibly smart combination.

Time for a dip. Cheers (Lente acrylic tumbler in white)!
