Corporate yacht charters are a distinctive and thoughtful way to show employees how appreciated they are, no matter what the main premise may be for the event. Whether serving as a venue for a product launch, motivational sales meeting, or simply to boost company morale, yacht cruises offer endless possibilities for creating an exciting and innovative event that will resonate with your business associates long after the event takes place. Charter One Yachts is a leader in the yachting industry that specializes in corporate yacht events. They employ professional event coordinators that will work with you in developing your corporate event by utilizing their vast experience and creativity. Perhaps you are unsure what theme will convey the message that your company wishes to articulate. Fortunately, our team of coordinators will offer inspiration and insight with your company’s vision in mind to bring your event to life. Here are some exciting corporate event theme ideas that Charter One has utilized in the past with great success:

  • Grand Casino Theme – Perfect for a corporate anniversary, sales incentive or employee reward celebration, this theme is casual and fun. Decorate with a balloon archway using company colored balloons at the yacht entrance. Use company-inspired centerpieces on the tables that will get people talking. Offer Blackjack, slot machines, roulette and a craps tables. You can even reserve a DJ to keep it energized and lively; if a live band is more appealing, Charter One has a variety of energetic entertainers and musicians. To cap the night off, you can have an auction that guests can participate in using their casino winnings.


  • It’s a Jungle Out There Theme –   An original approach to the sales meeting. Each guest gets a ‘Jungle Kit’ at the ship’s entrance, which includes a bamboo note pad and banana pen for taking meeting notes, and party favors in animal print bags. Baskets of fresh tropical fruits serve as table centerpieces and guests can have fun photo ops with Tarzan and Jane characters. Serve delectable Caribbean cuisine and be entertained during the lunch break where guests compete to win prizes through jungle-inspired games (Pin the tail on the Monkey might be fun!)
  • Starlight Ball Theme –Show your employees/clients they shine using special decorative effects that will have the yacht radiating an elegant, starlit atmosphere. Use star luminaries as tabletop centerpieces and dress the tables in metallic linens of silver or gold alternating with black. This party tends to incorporate formal attire, but can still be fun by incorporating a glamorous “Old Hollywood” dress theme. Serve gourmet cuisine with white glove dinner service. Let Charter One’s event coordinator reserve a live band to provide music throughout the night. End the night by incorporating an awards ceremony for the employees that are the true ‘stars’ of the company. This elegant theme is sure to leave an impression.


  • Island Luau Theme – A perfect idea for an end of the year celebration. Hire some Hula dancers, decorate with Tiki statues, incorporate Birds of Paradise centerpieces and Palm trees. Be sure to inform guests that Luau attire is required! Present each guest with a tropical flower and gift bags filled with palm tree sunglasses, leis, and seashell necklaces. Serve tropical drinks in coconut mugs, and offer a menu consisting of Charter One’s renowned tropical island fare, like Mahi Mahi, Coconut Shrimp, and Roast Pork. Hire a Ukulele player and enjoy this island-inspired event!
