Are you looking for a new way to host a party that’s going to be fun and safe for everyone? Something that your guests would talk about for a long time even after? In that case, you might want to consider yachting as a viable option.
There are many advantages to hosting your party on a yacht, setting a luxurious ambiance first and foremost. Aside from this, however, it’s also a great way to deliver a new experience to your guests by cruising down the waters and enjoying the sights from a unique perspective. It’s also a certified way to make your party feel exclusive.
It’s also very convenient because you’ll only need to get on board, and the staff and crew will take care of the rest. Of course, there are other factors to consider, and elements to take care of; check out some of them below.
Determine the Guest List
The limited space offered by the yacht can work as a double-edged sword in the sense that you can make your guest list as exclusive as possible, but on the other hand, can be a limitation for you in case you would like a bigger party.
The key here is to first determine how many people you actually want to invite and then choosing a yacht size that can accommodate your party. Keep in mind that vessels like yachts have to abide by strict safety regulations, including limiting the number of passengers on board to a prescribed number, staff and crew included.
So if you want a big party, make sure you have the budget to get a bigger yacht to fit everyone; otherwise, you’ll have to trim down your guest list.
Set a Budget
Speaking of which, you should have a budget set to plan your event properly. The headcount of guests will also dictate how much food and drinks you’ll need for the event. Yachts used for parties usually come with styling, at least, and of course, there’s the fantastic view awaiting you on the deck.
Fortunately, yachting companies do have options for packages, depending on the type of event you have. Also keep in mind that the yacht runs on a limited number of hours, much like hotel function rooms do, but you may have the option to add hours for a fee, and prior agreement with the company.
Party with Good Weather, Stay Safe on Board
Weather conditions will play a huge role in the success of your party on a yacht because it will go out on the waters. Safety should always come first, so consider the weather on the day of the party. If you know that rain is more probable around that season, you might want to host your party another day when the skies are clearer.
Last but not least, ensure the safety of your guests. Safety guidelines will be provided by the yacht staff and crew, but your guests should also take it upon themselves to adhere to these for their own safety.
These basic considerations should help you set up a yacht party or event worth remembering for many days to come after. Tick all the boxes and you’re off to sail on your most perfect party event yet.
