Your Holiday Party – Yacht Club Style
Are you growing tired of the same old house parties with only a few guests and family members showing up? While it certainly is the easiest way to throw a holiday party, you can make it far more exciting by changing things dramatically. One idea that may appeal to you and your potential guests is to throw a holiday party on a yacht.
Not only is it an exciting opportunity, but your friends will be more than willing to show up for the affair! If this sounds like something you would like to do but are not quite sure how to plan one or even book a yacht, don’t worry. Here are several tips to help you set up your holiday party—yacht club style!
Choosing a Yacht
Before you even think about the theme or what food you want to serve to your guests, you first need to pick a vessel to host your holiday party. If you are one of the lucky few who own a yacht, then you are all set and can start planning your party. What if you are not, or your yacht is too small or not in great shape?
That is when hiring a local yacht can fulfill your needs. One way to go about things is to reach out to a local yacht club to see what vessels might be available for hire, and then you can work your way through the list to find a vessel that is large enough to accommodate the number of guests you expect to have.
Pick a Location
Once you have your yacht picked out, the next item on your agenda should be deciding on a location. Part of the appeal of throwing a holiday party on a yacht is the change of scenery, but the best part is: yachts are not limited to just one location. If you have an ideal spot along the port or out at sea, or several for that matter, you can have your party wherever you want. Of course, if you prefer to stay at the port and remain docked, that is an option as well that won’t be any less fun! Just be sure to consult with the owner of the yacht in case some of the locations you have in mind are out at sea!
Essential Things to Bring
One important thing to keep in mind if you plan to throw a yacht party is that once you set sail, what you bring is all you will have. When it comes to food and drinks, you need to consider how many guests you are expecting and how long you plan to spend aboard the yacht.
You can then work on buying enough food and drinks to last for the duration of the party—it will be a good idea to have extra! Additionally, you will want to ensure there is sunscreen in case you are hosting an afternoon party, and it would be a good idea that your guests bring warm clothes for the evening and any other necessary garments: whether that be themed costumes for the party or swimsuits if anyone wants to take a dip.
Include Water Sports
If you are going to spend time at sea, you should include some water sports to liven up the day and excite your guests. Snorkeling, kayaking, and jet skiing are a few ways to spend an afternoon with your guests and take advantage of the opportunity at sea!
