Comprehensive Guide to Event Charters
Event Charter Possibilities
When it comes to events, conferences and special occasions, there are few options more sophisticated than your own private yacht. Chartering a yacht for that special birthday, an unforgettable honeymoon or some of the most prestigious corporate events in the world offers new levels of luxury and comfort.
Experience total privacy, unrivalled luxury and exceptional service whilst on board - the ideal setting to wine and dine that important client, or entertain friends and family.
Whether for pleasure or business, event charters offer a floating front row seat to events such as the Cannes film festival and the Monaco Grand Prix, or an ultimate private party venue. Our experts organise charters for conferences, birthdays and weddings to name a few, and will be on-hand to advise you every step of the way. We can help to organise everything from catering, airport transfers, itineraries and security.
A few things to consider when planning an events charter:
- Yacht Capacity. Most yachts are restricted to a 12-pax maximum for cruising and accommodation. There are, however, a selection of events yachts with licenses to carry up to 30-40 guests for cruising and up to 350 for static events.
- Booking in Advance. If you're planning a corporate events charter for a conferences (such as Cannes Lions or MIPIM in Cannes) most of the yachts are booked in advance so it's best to get in touch 10-12 months ahead of the conference. We have a yachting event calendar of the major yachting events worldwide for your reference.
- The Berth. When planning a yacht charter for an event, it is crucial that you factor in the berth in the port in your planning. If you are organising a static birthday or celebration in the port your application for a berth is relatively straightforward, provided you're booking your holiday a few months in advance. If you plan to host a corporate event during the conferences, whether for a day or the full event, you will have to charter the boat and secure the berth for the full-duration of the conference. Applications for berths for corporate events, such as MIPIM, must be submitted to the Capitainnerie in Cannes upon the booking of the boat. We are here to help throughout and will help to make this happen!
- Catering. Whilst most yachts have permanent crew onboard, the demands of an event often mean extra helpers are required. Certain clients choose to organise their own catering, security, and entertainment, but should you require recommendations on local contacts our brokers are happy to advise.

In an increasingly competitive world, finding innovative ways to impress clients or inspire staff can be tricky. Luckily, we have the perfect solution! A luxury charter yacht offers the perfect setting to host corporate events in unforgettable locations. Once you get clients aboard the yacht, they'll never want to leave, giving you the chance to make your pitch and a lasting impression. Boatbookings offers numerous luxury motor and sailing yachts based across the globe perfect for hosting corporate events.
Beyond being primed for hosting opulent parties, these boats also offer complete privacy for confidential board meetings.
Our charters accommodate for experiences such as teambuilding as well as glamorous cocktail parties to reward staff or dazzle potential clients on glittering superyachts. With social media marketing on the rise, make use of your influencers platform by inviting them to exotic locations. What better way for them to spread the word about your brand than with a sponsored weekend on a yacht as the ideal background for picture opportunities that are sure to stand out!
The maritime law of a maximum of 12 people cruising, other than on event boats, does not apply to Static Charters - where the yacht is moored by the dock for the entire event. This allows for a longer guest-lists and more 'seeing and being seen'.
Promote your brand with a Super Yacht and use its impressive grandeur as your backdrop for corporate events. This is a common way of hosting functions and entertaining clients at conferences such as MIDEM, MIPIM, MIPCOM and Cannes Lions Advertising Festival in Cannes, or the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The outstanding crew will cater to you and your guests' every need. In the evenings, why not invite your clients aboard for a gourmet dinner, provided in an elegant private dining room. Alternatively, enjoy cocktails up on deck with breathtaking views of the port.
Your birthday comes back around and like every year, there is always the question of what to do! If you are looking for a truly unique birthday idea, particularly for those landmark birthdays, what could be more special than celebrating the next year of your life on a yacht with all of your loved ones?
The professional crew will pamper you and your guests with the finest cuisine and guide you to the very best beach restaurants, whilst making sure everything runs smoothly. Have a boogie on deck away from prying eyes or anchor in a vibrant port to hit the town after a day spent cruising and soaking up the sun along the beautiful coast. Entertain and amaze your friends and family with a special event to remember for the rest of your life.
A yacht charter is like your very own floating 5 star hotel with style and intimacy, as well as a professional crew. Unlike a hotel, a yacht allows for an intimate setting for you and your guests to enjoy your special day in total privacy. You have the freedom to navigate and anchor as you please. Picture celebrating your wedding on your private charter, as your guests sip champagne and sample delectable canapés.
Certain events yachts are for cruising only, whilst others can accommodate a select few guests on-board. After a night of dancing and celebrating the love of your life, it is only a short walk to your stateroom; another major advantage of a yacht wedding venue! To note however, most yachts are restricted to 12 guests maximum for overnight-stays. One of the most outstanding benefits of yacht weddings is the feeling of an elite adventure that nothing else quite provides like a yacht. Your dream venue may just be one click away - this wedding will be one for the ages.
Make the most of your honeymoon by choosing a yacht charter as your romantic getaway.
