Smooth Sailing Celebrations – Your Special Day Your Way!

While many aspects of a yacht wedding are similar to land weddings, such as a festive atmosphere, there are some differences to be aware of.


Since all yachts have minimum and maximum head count requirements, the first step is to be as close as possible to your final guest count when starting your yacht search. A common mistake to avoid is that “Ghost Ship” feeling that happens when selecting a yacht that’s too big for the group.  And you don’t want to be on a yacht that’s too small either, packing your guests in like sardines. Give your nautical event planner an accurate guest range from the start so that the correctly sized yachts are discussed and toured.

When narrowing in on the specific yachts that best suit your needs, have on hand the preferred date for your event.  Your nautical event planner will need this date to check on availability of the yachts. And although you may feel like you have fallen in love with the first yacht you see, it’s important to take the time to shop around. Ask your nautical event planner to “hold” your preferred date while you visit other yachts.

The only way to know for certain that the first yacht option is best for you is to comparison shop. Every yacht features a distinctive layout and décor and has its own policies. You should look for an event planner that will keep your date on hold for about a week while you tour the yachts. If your nautical event planner refuses to accommodate you during this critical time, this is a red flag. Consider jumping overboard to a different planner if necessary!

Although your nautical event planner should email you a variety of pictures of yacht options, be sure to take along a camera to take pictures of each yacht that you tour. This will help you remember the yacht’s layout so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. 

Have a ready list of standard questions to ask about each yacht. And bring along pen and paper to take notes on the yachts and jot down your planner’s answers.
