The Ultimate Luxury Yacht Party Guide - Singapore
Here's the brutal truth about planning for a yacht party:
It is REALLY stressful to plan a celebration and gather people together on land, let alone planning a party on the seas!
Even though you'll get to spend quality time away from the bustling Singapore crowds, together with your friends and family enjoying the privacy from the deep blue..
Most people just give up and plan a simple celebration near a shopping mall and blow candles with a cake..
If only planning for a yacht party were that easy..
If you're serious about hosting the ultimate yacht party for your loved ones, you need to be very clear with what you want and understand what is required to plan one..
Well today, I’m going to share with you the 3 Steps to Planning a Successful Yacht Party.
1. Choose The Right Yacht
With so many yachts available to charter, the choice is often mind boggling.
Firstly, you need to know how many guests you plan on inviting.
Most yachts can host numbers in port way and above those they are permitted to cruise with.
Our most popular yachts are SunRise - 18 Pax and Homeaway - 8 Pax with 2 crew on board.
For a party of under ten, you should easily be able to get away with a very small yacht or a terrific sail boat like Homeaway.
If you enjoy being in a spacious accommodation with fully air-conditioned settings, equipped with 3 shower rooms, you will appreciate a Catamaran like SunRise.
Secondly, Budget is an important factor for any party, especially complicated when it comes to yacht chartering.
Costs like service crew fee, fuel, utilities are usually included in the yacht charter fee, you have to make sure you find an operator that ensures all of the associated costs are discussed in advance.
Our partner, WhiteSails, the yacht charter fee includes (Captain, Service Crew, Fuel, Utilities, Kayaks, Snorkel Kits, and Fishing rods).
The 10 pax Floating Bar Rental and BBQ Pit Rental and Grilling Service are available in addition.
Thirdly, Book the boat you want as far in advance as you can.
This is especially true when you plan on having a boat party on or around a major holiday like National Day, as the boats tend to get booked out quickly during these times.
Why, you may ask?
What could be better than having your own exclusive floating venue to host your celebration with all the leisure equipment you need to enjoy life on the water including kayaks, snorkeling gear, fishing rods, and banana boats.
2. Entertain your guests
You can't gather a group of people together and expect them to entertain themselves do you?
To help guide the planning process, make sure you figure out a theme and inform your guests prior to the party.
If you can, come up with a theme that you and your group are interested in.
Need some ideas? Marina Bay Sands Casino Night, Murder mystery, Masquerade ball and Beach Style are just some of the more popular ideas.
3. Don't forget the Food
