Boat Party Ideas

If you are looking for a way to make your next event an unparalleled success, move it from the regular ho-hum party venues and turn it into an exciting charter yacht boat party!  Boat parties are the ideal way to celebrate any event, as they epitomize the elegance and sophistication that makes our South Florida lifestyle so sought after by citizens from around the world. Our glorious Florida weather means winter months are no object; you can enjoy a boat party any time of the year, rain or shine. Choosing a South Florida party venue is easy with Charter One’s fleet of charter party yachts: you just select the vessel that fits your party size, and our dedicated staff takes care of all the details for you, with expert boat party planning services, five-star cuisine prepared by our award-winning chef, and trained staff to cater to your every requirement. Throwing a South Florida yacht party is easier than it seems; you just start with a great boat party idea and our planners do the rest! Here are two of our favorite boat party ideas to get you started:

Afternoon Tea on the Sea Boat Party
For your next charity fund raiser or social organization function, bring a bit of British sophistication and understated elegance to the occasion with an Afternoon Tea on the Sea boat party aboard Charter One’s Summer Wind charter yacht. Once the private yacht of the Bacardi family and now restored to her former glory, she provides the perfect setting for up to 65 guests to enjoy the finest Earl Grey or Oriental Black, served on fine bone china resting on crisp linen tablecloths. Our accomplished chef can prepare a full tea with finger sandwiches, crab quiches, and other savories, and tempt you to indulge in sophisticated sweets with scones served with clotted cream and jam, fresh baked Madeleines, and delectable fruit tarts. Soak in the scenery as you pass the private estates bordering Fort Lauderdale’s intracoastal waterways, with the lush stylings of a live string quartet filling the air.

Viva Las Vegas Boat Party
Bring back the glamour of Las Vegas in her heyday with a Viva Las Vegas Boat Party! Whether you are hosting a corporate event, private party, birthday bash, or charity fundraiser, guests will love the sophisticated fun of a floating casino night aboard a luxury yacht. You have your choice of vintage Vegas eras; recreate the suave 50’s sophistication of the Rat Pack’s glory days or go for the glitz with Elvis in rhinestones and leather. Guests wear their black tie best to experience the exhilaration of a night spent gambling in a Las Vegas casino, with none of the agonizing losses since no real money changes hands. Charter One brings Vegas to vivid life, with casino tables, professional dealers, and an on-site casino manager running all your casino favorites: Texas Hold ‘em, blackjack, poker, craps, roulette, slots, video poker, mini-baccarat, and Big 6. Guests stay cool during even the most heated betting action on the air-conditioned decks of Charter One’s Floridian Princess; when it is time to take a break from the gambling action, guests can enjoy the crooning melodies of Dino and Frank look-alikes as they nosh on a seafood buffet and sip Martini Royales and Cuba Libres at the ultimate yacht bar.

Make sure your next event is a certified success by turning it into a boat party on a Charter One party yacht. Whether you use these boat party ideas or incorporate some South Florida boat party ideas of your own, our dedicated boat party planners will bring your exact party vision to glorious life to make sure your event is the best boat party in South Florida this year!
