Is it the holidays? Or have you taken leave to embark on a mini vacay? Either way, it calls for a lovely getaway! And this time, you can make it a lil different by having this escape out on the open waters with your loved ones. Honestly, what sounds better than a private boat charter, the sun, the ocean, the people you love, and delicious food? It’s time to take off on a lovely marine adventure on a yacht and create everlasting memories together. So, to keep the trip enjoyable, out of the many key aspects to look out for – one of the most important ones is the food. No outing is ever satisfactory if the food isn’t up to par with the rest of the experience. Thus, to help you enhance the culinary experience of your yacht adventure, we’ve listed down 4 excellent dishes that you can request from the kitchen crew or cook up yourself! Shellfish Pasta Salad You can’t ever go wrong with serving seafood in the middle of an aquatic getaway. Imagine you’re by the waters, taking in the sights, as someone serves you some fresh shellfish pasta salad. Admit it; it sounds wonderful even in your head. Shellfish itself makes for a gorgeous sea-based meal. Pair it with some pasta and toss it into a salad. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? You will have on your hands an incredible dish that will have people wanting for more. The best part about this dish is that it can be served separately with seasonings ranging from mild to spicy, allowing people with different flavour palettes to enjoy it without worries! Iced tea and Fish crackers We have to admit, our mouths are watering just thinking about this one. Iced tea and fish crackers might seem like an odd and unusual combination, but in reality, the flavours of both perfectly complement each other. The cool, rich taste of the iced tea, juxtaposed with the hot, salty flavour of the fish crackers results in a flavour palette that would be nothing less than heaven for your taste buds. For the most part, this dish would make for a perfect entrée. It will be light yet flavourful, and it will leave enough room in your guests’ stomachs so that they can still chow down on the dishes that you’ll serve after. Chicken with Tapenade This one gets us excited, that’s for sure. If you’re not familiar with what tapenade is, it is a flavour rich condiment that you can whip up with some fresh olives and some spices. It is super quick and easy to make, and one batch should satisfy a fair number of guests. Now, of course, you can’t serve tapenade on its own, even though it tastes heavenly by itself. The common thing to do would be to pair up this lovely condiment up with various meats. It pairs well with a juicy beef steak or duck, and it could even make a good vegetarian option if served with some nachos or pita bread. However, nothing beats the classic chicken with tapenade combination. You can cook your chicken any way you want it, but it’s recommended to grill them for the best taste. Top it off with some delicious tapenade and you are bound to satiate and delight everyone’s taste buds! Fish and Chips For our final recommendation, we want to go back to a classic. When you feel slightly homesick on your yacht adventure, nothing will remind you of home quite like a nice, hot plate of fish and chips. You can even make things interesting for … Read More

Throwing a party to celebrate special occasions is now an everyday occurrence to most people. And when you’re the host of the party, it’s your duty to take care of each small detail and make sure all your guests are having a swell time. Eventually, nothing will make you more happy than knowing that your party was a success! Even if it means hosting one aboard a yacht, with the right steps – you are sure to put together an exciting party. If that sounds good to you and you’re now keen on the idea of holding a yacht party in Singapore, then there are some tips you need to know in regards to hosting one. While it may take a bit more effort given the change in venue and setting – we’ve put together a couple of tips to guide you on how you can perfectly host a yacht party. Hand out personal invitations One of the most important aspects of any party is its beginnings - the invitations. A big part of being a good yacht party host is to personalise the invitations you send out to your guests. This is because although you can just send out invitations via text or online chat, that wouldn’t guarantee that your guests will actually show up. However, by putting in the effort to invite them to your planned get-together and make it sound more exciting than any regular party, you’re guaranteed to receive your invitees on the day of the event. In other words, you need to engage with your potential party guests. Call them up. Ask them to show up and tell them how much fun it’s going to be. And when you make your guest list, make sure to invite everyone you hold dear (or until you hit the maximum passenger limit of your private boat charter). Serve good food This one can’t be stressed enough. Although it’s a given that the drinks you serve (especially those of the alcoholic kind) typically take priority in a modern party, a night of partying on a yacht charter in Singapore is sure to make some stomachs hungry come morning. Therefore, it’s important not to skimp on the food just so your guests will have a lot more to drink. When it comes to your offerings, your only concerns are the following: There should be enough for everyone. It should taste good. There needs to be sufficient variety to satisfy all palates. Keep the music and entertainment popping Music is the cornerstone of any good party. As such, you must amply prepare in this regard to ensure that the good times keep on rolling for your guests. If you’re musically inclined, you can mix your own songs and play them during the event. Otherwise, you could hire a DJ to your party for entertainment. Besides the inevitable partying activities, it’s recommended to plan other entertainment activities in your itinerary. A few excellent suggestions would be a movie marathon to relax and unwind or party games that make the most out of being on open waters. Give your guests party favours It’d be remiss of you as a host to let your guests leave empty-handed. Thank them for coming to your yacht party by giving out little gift bags that commemorates the time you spent together. These trinkets don’t necessarily have to be pricey. A souvenir can either be a small sea-themed keychain, figurine, or mayhaps some shells you picked up along the way -anything’s fine as long as it reminds the guests of the wonderful time they had at your party.

4 Delightful Ideas To Make Boating More Fun For Your Kids

Private Boat Charter, Private Boat Charter Singapore

Whether they’re still at a wee age or already nearing adulthood, it’s important to always be involved in your children’s lives before they set out for the world. This usually entails family outings to make up for the lack of bonding time during the weekdays. To add a twist to your get-togethers and make it more exciting, why not try out a private cruise at sea? The sound of it alone is sure to perk up your kids no matter their age and even excite your significant other to boot! But to make it memorable for your little ones, it’s important to note that you still need to come up with some ideas to keep the journey entertaining for them. So, we lay down four fun ways boating can be the time of your life for your family. Do a movie marathon Watching a movie at home or the theatre is sure to be a regular concurrence for your kids at this point. But since they’ve never experienced watching one whilst at sea, this suggestion is anything but. If your kids have an all-time favourite movie that they just can’t get enough of, or they’d like to watch a new one that’s available online, why not play them during the trip? All you’ll need is a projector, a serviceable white sheet, and the movies that they’d like to watch. When the time is right, grab some popcorn, sit back, and relax in the viewing pleasure with the backdrop of a setting sun. Bring in some binoculars and monoculars No matter if you’re on a boating trip or just out at the mall, it’s not uncommon for kids to get bored in no time. So, before embarking on your private boat charter – to spice things up, you can bring along a pair of binoculars and let the kids have fun with it! If available, you can also opt for monoculars instead and let them play as pirates while the ship is moving. A simple gadget such as these is often enough to keep them preoccupied for hours on end. Go adventure fishing No aquatic getaway would be complete without fishing! Therefore, setting some time solely to fish with your little ones is essential to make some memorable moments. As a tip, it’s important to keep in mind that their enjoyment takes first priority in this activity, whether you fish for a hobby or not. This means that whether you score big or end up with a few small catches, what matters most is that they have fun. Since fishing inherently involves a lot of waiting, it’s crucial to keep them entertained while passing the time. One thing that you could do is to research ahead of time educate your kids about the different species of fish that can be found in the waters you’re traversing. Another suggestion would be to let them choose the locations they want to fish. Doing so allows them to feel in charge of a great expedition with the goal of bringing back the biggest catch man has ever seen! Don’t forget their toys and snacks during downtime Going out boating is typically a way to enjoy a relaxing and slow day. As such, it’s necessary to have some downtime after your children have had their fun playing at sea. Bring along their favourite snacks and toys to ensure that they can still enjoy themselves while talking a breather amidst the calm of the waves. Ideally, you should also limit their access to technology since it could prevent them from thoroughly enjoying the trip’s experience. Conclusion  An … Read More
