Here is a list of some of the fabulous features of getting married on a boat:

1. The views!

You and your guests can enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views from a variety of decks aboard one of our luxurious yachts. Our stunning vessels have air-conditioned indoor lounge areas and also outside lounge areas to enjoy the sun and surf.

2. We’ll help with all the details.

Our talented event planning team can assist you in creating that special wedding that you always dreamed of having. Our staff will help customize your special day to make it truly your very own, and they have a treasure trove of great ideas and suggestions to make your wedding a fabulous affair.

Marriage on a boat is so romantic, with family and guests together for the marriage ceremony. You can hold your ceremony outside on deck or inside in a themed atmosphere. When you get married on a boat you can decide whether to have it during the day or at twilight. Either way, marriage on a boat is always a magical event.

5. The food is [almost] as good the view!

Getting married on a boat means that you and your guests will get to enjoy our fabulous cuisine. We offer a large assortment of menu options for you to select from, and menus can be customized to suit your preferences, taste and pleasure. Some of our many selections include Asian, Italian, American, and Thai cuisine. You can choose from various dining style options that range from a luncheon, cocktail party, buffet-style dining, or formal sit-down dining with all the trimmings. Our excellent cuisine is known to satisfy even the most discriminating palates, and our gourmet chefs are particularly diligent when preparing food for guests with specific dietary needs and allergy restrictions. You can also opt for add-on stations as an extra treat for your guests, with such delicious offerings as: Viennese Table, Café/Cappuccino, Assorted Fruits and Cheeses, and much more.

6. Whether it’s an intimate event or an elaborate extravaganza, we’ve got the perfect yacht.

You can choose from our incomparable luxury yachts once you have decided on the amount of guests that will attend your fabulous wedding. For a small, intimate affair with less than 60 guests, we recommend the beautiful Summer Wind Yacht. For larger affairs we recommend The Grand Floridian, which can accommodate 550 guests, can hold formal seated dinners for 240 guests all on one deck.
