I have been lucky enough to step foot on a yacht at least one time, but I have to say, that night was completely unforgettable. While I went with a large group of people at an event in Washington, D.C., private yachts can be rented for almost any and every occasion. If you’re like me, you might have thought that planning a yacht party was an uppity thing to do. But I’ve since learned that it can actually be a pretty reasonable venture, and it makes your event – whatever that event may be – so much more exciting for all of your guests.
The yacht I was on had a dance floor, a bar, and two decks that were packed with people having the time of their lives. The party went on late into the night, and the city lights reflected on the water gave the whole event a special glow. However, depending on what the occasion calls for, yacht events can be much more lowkey. For example, Anita Dee, a private yacht charter in Chicago, offers the use of their boats for weddings, corporate events, private parties, and other special events such as bar mitzvahs or quinceaneras. Customers can also rent out the boats at different times of the day, meaning that night owls and early birds alike can make their event everything they need it to be.
Each host would love nothing more than for their event to go smoothly and to be remembered fondly for years to come. That’s a lot more possible on a yacht than you might expect it to be. For example, some yacht charters will have staff present on-board to help with serving, while others offer recommendations for the other aspects of your special night, including flowers, music, or food. In fact, the yacht company may already have connections to other businesses that they prefer to work with, which are pretty much guaranteed to be top-tier.
If you are already planning to rent out space for your next event, renting out a yacht is worth considering. Depending on where you would end up on land, you may get more bang for your buck with the novelty of partying out on the water. My yacht experience was over five years ago, and I still think about how much fun I had. At the end of the day, you want your party or event to go down as a success, and that’s a lot easier to do when the venue is great, the service is provided, and the excitement is up. While we all know that what really makes a party special is the people who you’re sharing it with, it definitely doesn’t hurt to have some perks.Read More
