Celebrating life on board a charter yacht

Celebrating life on board a charter yacht

A vacation is not the only reason why people charter yachts. What about a wedding ceremony, a birthday celebration or an engagement party?

For a moment picture the following image: the watch shows it’s almost that long-awaited midnight, you and your loved ones dressed in the evening gowns are standing aboard gorgeous charter yacht and expecting when the New Year finally arrives. In front of you there’s one of the most magnificent views with the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Just in few minutes, the giant steel construction will become a starting point to one of the most expected performances of the year – the New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Tourists from all over the world arrive to Sydney every year to watch this mesmerizing show, without even mentioning Australians from different parts of the country. New Year’s fireworks against the background of Sydney Opera House are globally broadcasted by various TV channels.

During this festive night Sydney Harbour becomes a base for the lucky ones, as it’s one of the best places to watch the fireworks. And you can expects the space is quite limited for those who want to get access to exclusive view.

One of the most luxury options is to charter a yacht and place it in the harbour. For example, you can charter the spellbinding INFINITY PACIFIC. 24-hour special rent offer for the New Year’s Eve is AUD 120,000 (catering & drinks for 10 passengers and GST included).

Fireworks isn’t the only highlight of the New Year’s Eve in Sydney Harbour. There is also the Light Parade going on when each vessel participated in the event is decorated with special lights. All reminds a dance of yachts and ships that takes place from Goat island to Cockatoo island and vice versa.

The question of price is of course quite an important matter. However, celebrating any significant event or holiday aboard a yacht is a unique experience. It is steeped in the spirit of adventures, romantic atmosphere and inimitable mood. It is impossible to replicate such combination of emotions and feelings in any other location. On land it’s totally different. For those chartering a yacht, the memories will be simply unique.

New Year party in the harbour of Sydney on board a splendid yacht is an undoubted luxury, which is being fully booked quite fast. However, this is by far not the only way how to celebrate life. There are so many special and important holidays and events to celebrate during the nautical bliss.

An anniversary, a birthday, Christmas, Independence Day, or a wedding – it is wonderful to celebrate each of these events in fantastic decorations of a cruise, and to keep wonderful memories for life.

Often our clients charter yachts to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary during an exclusive cruise. Of course it is better to start planning and organizing such trip ahead of time, approximately 6-9 months before the important date. It is because good yachts with great crew and excellent condition are booked very fast when summer is still so far away. For example, if you plan a trip to Croatia, it is really better to take care of the booking in fall. If we’re talking about Greece and catamarans, the situation is similar. In April it is already not an easy task to find a free yacht.


For a day to remember there is a little organization to go a long way.

There may be some amount of formalities and organizational moments before you actually reach the yacht. But once you step on board, all that will disappear leaving you with the sea bliss, fresh air, sunny weather, islands and ancient ports, yacht enthusiasts, canvases of sails and much more. It is all like a balm for the soul that allows you to forget about all the worries.

Indeed, aboard the yacht there’s only one care, and it is to relax. Yes, all you need to do is to turn yourself off from the exterior world and lose yourself in the pleasure of hedonism. Professional crew will take care of everything and will create festive atmosphere with catering, decorations, artist’s or DJ’s performances, dancers, fireworks.

Many charter yachts, especially sailing ones, boast of large deck space. The higher yacht’s level, the more probably it features all necessary equipment for an excellent celebration. If no, then it’s always possible to rent it. So for the yacht it is not a problem to organize an event, but it’s a task, which is easy to fulfil.

Nowadays people are in a constant search of new impressions, as it becomes more and more difficult to feel surprised with the availability of experiences and different opportunities. And despite all that yachting is still able to impress.

If by any chance you plan such an important event as wedding or engagement, and search for a perfect location for a ceremony, think of a charter yacht. Some vessels have a license to host up to 50 guests on board for the parties. You may have a ceremony onboard a charter yacht and then dock to one of beautiful seaside restaurants or waterfront hotels and continue your celebration over there. And when the party comes to an end, the newlyweds can board the yacht and sail to a quiet and marvelous bay for their honeymoon.

One of the beautiful yachting destinations, which would be perfect for such scenario, is Gocek bay in Turkey, with pristine nature and gorgeous ambience. Another one is Santorini in Greece, which is a famous wedding and yacht charter destination. Also think of Hvar island in the Adriatic covered with pine trees, villas with terracotta roofs and lavender fields, the coast of Sardinia or Amalfi in Italy.

Indeed, there are so many perfect yachting locations for such special charter experience, so you’ll definitely choose your dream place. You should also think whether you want a loud and colorful celebration or a quiet and atmospheric event.
