Stewardesses Pick of the Month from RIALTO LIVING
Whether the yacht is cruising the remote and mysterious Scottish Hebrides or the turquoise waters of the Balearics, you can be sure that (on a number of occasions) lunch or dinner will take place while out for a sail, motoring to the next marina, or in a rough and rolly anchorage. Alternatively, you most likely will need to pack lunch for a day ashore or an afternoon on the beach: yet more scenarios in which the boat’s best Baccarat is just not going to cut it. But when the plastic glasses onboard are, well, clearly plastic, what’s a stew to do when the rest of the set-up consists of perfectly ironed linen and a tasteful arrangement of stylish shells?
You’ll be happy to hear that the last time we had a nosey around Rialto Living we were dazzled by their extensive collection of top-quality plastic glasses, which range from champagne flutes to water tumblers. They are not only available in anything from electric blues to emerald greens but are also strong enough to withstand the mother of all waves and the subsequent epic crash, which will send everything flying. Additionally, it would take a click of your fingernail, which will result in the telltale ‘tick’ of plastic, instead of a glass-like ‘ting’, to discern these synthetic stunners from the ‘real thing’.
Another item Rialto Living stock which are great for picnic baskets or meals-while-at-sea, are the genius napkins made by MYdrap, the only cotton and linen tear-off napkins on a roll. Rialto Living stock these stylish alternatives to paper napkins in a huge array of colours and in three handy sizes. What’s more, they are machine-washable, so re-usable and eco-friendly to boot. And what’s not to love about that?
Rialto Living, conveniently located on Calle Sant Feliu 3, is just a stone’s throw away from Palma’s STP and sells a wide selection of eye-catching super yacht must-haves. Have a snoop around and see for yourself. And if you make a purchase don’t forget to flash your STP (or other) entry card so you can relax in their leafy, oasis-like café and sip on a complimentary ‘cafe con leche’ before you head back to the boat.
