Plan on enjoying the soft balmy breezes of south Florida as you sail the beautiful blue waters overlooking the coast. Here is how you can plan your Fort Lauderdale party boat excursion in just three easy steps:
1. Select Your Luxury Vessel
The first step in planning your party boat rental is to draw up your guest list to see how many guests will be in attendance. Once your list is completed you can select which of our gorgeous yachts will host your party boat event.
If you have an extensive guest list, we recommend our stunning Grand Floridian yacht. This beauty can accommodate up to 550 guests comfortably, and easily serve a seated dinner for 240 guests all on one deck.
This 18,000 square foot beauty has four decks with a covered sky deck, two aft balconies and a forward sun deck. Other features of this fabulous party boat rental include: modern amenities, contemporary décor, a state of the art media system and 13 HD televisions, multiple dance areas, a custom full-service bar, elevator service, restrooms on each deck, and private suites with en-suites below deck.
Your guests can explore all four decks with indoor and outdoor lounge areas to relax, mingle, dance or get some sun. The Grand Floridian offers a true party boat celebration experience.
Our regal beauty the Summer Wind yacht can easily accommodate up to 60 guests and is the perfect venue for a smaller, more intimate affair. Boasting three decks, this lovely lady has multiple indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a custom full-service bar, a modern galley with on-board master chef, and multiple staterooms with en-suites below deck. You will feel like royalty with your very own private yacht for the day aboard the Summer Wind.
2. Choose Your Unique Theme
What is a Fort Lauderdale boat party without a theme? If you haven’t thought about a theme for your party our talented event planning team has plenty of ideas to assist you. You can select from a treasure-trove of ideas, such as a Mystery Night, a Dance Party, Fashion Show Luncheon, Costume Party, Tailgate Grill Sports, Casino Gaming, and so much more.

Whichever way you want to celebrate with your crowd is available to you with our party planning experts. You can select a DJ or a live band, and karaoke too. You can also choose from many music genres like Latin, Rock, Big Band, Alternative, Rap/Hip Hop etc.
