Corporate Yacht Charters: Type of Events
A luxury yacht charter can be adapted to fit nearly any type of corporate event, including:
- Meetings & Conferences
A charter yacht provides the perfect environment for intimate client meetings and conferences. By hosting your conference on a charter yacht, not only will you be sure to make an impression, but you can also customize your itinerary for the day. Take your guests out for a day on the water, or entertain guests near a larger meeting or venue.
Larger superyachts can accommodate 100 guests or more, with an option for onboard lodging. In terms of entertaining, you have numerous options. All yachts provide interior and exterior spaces that are ideal for entertaining clients and guests with al fresco luncheons and sunset cocktail hours.
Plus, your yacht can be transformed into a working space, with onboard Wi-Fi, telephone access and onboard workstations.
- Product Launches
Hosting a product launch is all about creating buzz, and an A-list venue like a luxury charter yacht can help you generate social media mentions and positive PR. A yacht provides the perfect backdrop to showcase your product. Take influencers, journalists and other media on a sunset cruise before the “big reveal,” or host an afternoon luncheon for VIPs.
The onboard chef can design a menu that accentuates your brand or product, and the crew will be on-hand to provide excellent service to all your guests. Another option: Charter a yacht near a larger convention or trade show, and invite back influencers and journalists for your exclusive event.
- Corporate Afterparties
A glitzy afterparty can be a powerful marketing tool for your business, and a luxury superyacht is the classiest of venues. A private afterparty is perfect following festivals, conventions and tradeshows and sporting events.
For example, yacht charter afterparties are popular in Cannes after the Cannes International Film Festival, and in Monaco after the Grand Prix. A private afterparty can be a great way to attract clients, following trade shows and conventions, as well.
- Team Building & Employee Incentives
Want to reward your best salespeople, or host an unforgettable team-building cruise? A corporate yacht charter makes perfect sense. You can host a day- or weeklong cruise for an excellent team-building experience. Or host an intimate employee appreciation event on board like a cocktail hour, an overnight cruise, or upscale dinner.
Why Yacht Charters Are Perfect for Corporate Events
- Privacy & Exclusivity
A chartered yacht provides an intimate and completely private experience. Your guests will be the only individuals welcomed aboard, and the docking location can be selected for seclusion. Plus, you can take to the water for added privacy.
- Custom Menus & Service
No need to work with caterers! You’ll have access to an onboard chef who can craft a menu that fits your event perfectly. Whether you prefer an intimate dinner, or prefer hors d’oeuvres, your chef can make it happen. Plus, you’ll have an onboard crew to make your guests feel welcome.
- Comfortable Accommodations
Luxury yachts are designed for maximum comfort, and most are remodeled every few years. That means you can expect modern furnishings and décor. Plus, there’s plenty of spaces to entertain: Sundecks, aft decks, interior saloons, dining rooms, entertainment rooms.
Finally, if you’re hosting a multi-day event, the staterooms and cabins aboard a yacht offer the best-of-the-best in accommodations.
When hiring a yacht for your corporate event, you have a team in place that’s there to serve you: A captain to design your itinerary, a chef, interior service crews, and exterior crews. That means you don’t have to coordinate between multiple vendors to host your event.
Not to mention, every detail is flexible, from the yacht’s location to the menus and guestlists.
