Luxury Yacht CharterEmployees are an organization’s best assets. Any highly experienced business owner will tell you that it’s crucial to maintain not only a good working relationship with your employees, but to keep them happy and relaxed. These simple yet effective ideas do a great amount of help to maximize morale while keeping productivity at its peak. Hence, many corporations have incentive programs in place to reward their staff from time to time. Incentives can come in many forms such as gift hampers, tickets to sporting events or other shows, yacht cruises, travel programs, and more. Usually rewards are for duration of service, quality of performance, and for concocting initiatives or ideals which are innovative or beneficial to the company.

Rewarding a Department or Top Performers

One of the popular incentives is a luxury yacht charter with all the extras. It’s typically a day or evening outing but sometimes a trip lasting for a week. Yacht charter companies have various programs on offer and can also customize them as per your firm’s special requirements. Group sizes can range from 10 to 100 or even more, and the tour may be aboard more than one yacht depending upon the options available. You do not have to worry about the planning since genuine yacht charter companies have their own staff who specialize in organizing such events. The only thing you’ll only need to clarify is a specific budget while giving a rough outline of what activities or add-ons should be included in the yacht charter.

An All-Inclusive Spectacular Treat

There are some great benefits of holding corporate incentive programs onboard yachts as compared to cruise ships. For one, it promises more personalized attention since there will be a ratio of one crew member for every 5-15 passengers. You can choose what activities or ports of call you want included in the trip. All the meals during your trip can have gourmet dishes of your choice from pre-designed specialty menus, including everything from a range of hors d’ouevres to cool and colorful cocktails. And since most luxury yacht charters are all-inclusive, you don’t have to worry about paying extra to truly indulge.

Cost-Effective with Good Taste

Additional attractions aboard the yacht may include live entertainment such as live bands with dancing, casino games, comedy, DJ’s and more. Another excellent and popular idea is to have theme parties at your corporate yacht charter events.

In general, employees will welcome a chance to kick back and have some fun while employers will find it more cost-effective than providing individual rewards. Figures also indicate that the savings can be a whopping 30 percent when compared to events held at a resort or other such venue. Along with luxury, the yachts afford full privacy and add charm to the event. Just be sure to research and compare quotes well ahead of the event’s scheduled date so you can assure availability and value. Many companies offer complete tours of their luxury charter yachts prior to booking, allowing the clients to experience the vessel  and it’s amenities.
