Renting a Yacht for a Party - Your Dream Party Guide

With your own private yacht, you can have the ultimate VIP party

There can be no better party than a party onboard your own exclusive yacht. With superyacht party guests largely arriving by helicopter or tender, and a closed off passarelle, you can be assured of the utmost discretion and safety for all on board.

Party away from prying eyes, let days drift into nights and days again, and impress your close-knit friends or VIP guests with exciting showstopping features.

If you are thinking of renting a yacht for a party, then you’ll want to consider two main aspects: location and atmosphere. Perhaps you want to invite your guests to a dusk-to-dawn yacht party at anchor in a secluded bay where there will be no curfew, no outside interferences and certainly no noise restrictions. Maybe you want to dock in a superyacht hotspot like Cannes or Monaco and host a fashionable pool party – you might even decide to coincide it with one of the season’s big events, such as the Cannes Film Festival or the Monaco Grand Prix. Or perhaps you are looking for a more intimate gathering in which you can reconnect with your family and friends under a canopy of unparalleled privacy.

Why organise a party on a yacht?

For unrivalled levels of luxury, total privacy and overall control, there is simply no better way of ensuring your guests have an unforgettable experience than on a party on a yacht.

By chartering a yacht for a party you can tailor the whole space and ambience to your exact requirements. Large outdoor decks can easily convert to dancefloors, with state-of-the-art lighting and surround sound, and with your own DJ, you can be sure that the playlist is always on point. For a more relaxed vibe, order cocktails to the sun deck while you enjoy the pool or Jacuzzi. For event charters, a Champagne reception on the pontoon is a great way to welcome guests on board. You can make sure the bars are fully stocked on every deck with the drinks you know your guests like, while your personal chef can prepare canapes or fine-dining feasts.

With an experienced crew planning for every eventuality, your hosting skills will be effortless, and guests will be delighted to be in the heart of luxury.

The best yachts for parties

When it comes to choosing the right yacht for your party, you’ll need to consider the elements that are essential to you. A mix of indoor and outdoor areas are great for creating individual spaces and making sure guests can break away from the crowd when they want to. Sun decks with Jacuzzis and pools are ideal for when guests want to cool down or take things easy, while sun loungers and sunpads are perfect for catching up with friends or family over drinks.

It also depends on how many guests you want to invite as to what yacht will be best for you. If your plan is for everyone to stay on board then make sure there are enough cabins for everyone, and you’ll want to consider the capacity on board for cocktail parties and after-parties too.

Renting a yacht for a party with Edmiston

Edmiston’s experienced brokers will work closely with you to find the best yacht for your party. Below are just three of our charter yachts currently available to rent for a party.

HIGHLANDER, the 49m 1986 Feadship, which sleeps 12 across seven cabins, was once the official yacht of Forbes magazine and epitomises high glamour and success and is a popular yacht during the Cannes Film Festival. Fully refitted in 2014, her dark hull makes her a head-turner in port and her colourful contemporary interiors with Pop Art on the wall, make for a fun venue to host a party.

Out on deck, HIGHLANDER’s beautiful and vibrant winter garden is a nice space for small parties – she has capacity for up to 70 guests at quay. The LED-lit Jacuzzi is ideal for night-dips and your guests will be following in the footsteps of Robert De Niro, Elizabeth Taylor and HRH Prince Charles, who have all been welcomed aboard.

ANDREAS L, meanwhile, is an impeccable example of Benetti’s popular 60 metre series and is one of the most coveted superyachts to charter, sleeping 12 guests across six cabins. Following an extensive 2018/2019 refresh, ANDREAS L is in pristine condition and her timeless and tasteful interiors offer a blank canvas for your party vision.

Her expansive sun deck with illuminated Jacuzzi is just the place to kick off your shoes and get in the party mood and she can accommodate 50-150 guests.

And, as you’ve probably guessed from the name, PARTY GIRL is a fabulous base for hosting events and sleeps 12 guests across eight cabins. The large beach club, with numerous water toys and the water slide from the upper deck, are great fun for anyone hosting a family-friendly yacht party, or even corporate events where staff can let off some steam. There’s a Jacuzzi on the sun deck and plenty of room for dancing.
