Are you throwing your best friend a bachelor party to celebrate their upcoming wedding? Levelling up a bachelor party by booking a private yacht is the best way possible to celebrate this next stage of life! You want to make this event as epic and memorable as possible for everyone, particularly the bride or groom. Being on a yacht in the open sea is a one-of-a-kind thrill that your best friend will never forget. With an island-hopping charter, you will be able to sail the waters of Singapore and Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Check out the different islands, take in breath-taking views, and bask in the experiences with your closest mates. Here are some tips on what you need to plan their bachelor party on a private luxury yacht. 1. Choose the best yacht rental company A trusted top yacht charter company would offer a great variety of packages so you can have the most memorable time celebrating your best friend’s last day of being single. Ideally, the company you choose should have experience hosting bachelor parties in the past for it to be a bang for everyone on board, the crew included! 2. Pick the best yacht that will fit everyone in the group You can book a luxury pontoon boat or consider a yacht rental, depending on the number of people you are inviting and, of course, your budget. You want something big enough for everyone to roam and party in comfortably. Keep in mind that you would be spending at least a day out at sea, which means that everyone’s comfort must be prioritised – the bride and groom’s in particular. 3. Plan an itinerary for the entire group Cruising to other islands means that you would be checking out local sceneries, going shopping, and enjoying a whole new journey with your squad. You can also consult the yacht charter company to help plan your itinerary to cover the most popular tourist attractions. 4. Think of some fun activities that everyone will enjoy onboard Aside from exploring the islands, it would be best to think of other engaging activities on board to keep everyone on their toes. These include board and card games, fishing contests, jump deck competitions, and many more. Of course, make sure the bride or groom is willing to participate in the activities. After all, this party is to celebrate them! 5. Make sure you’re fully stocked with food and drinks It is always a good idea to have snacks and drinks on board. While you can pack your food and beverages, save yourself the trouble and check with the yacht company for their catering services and offerings. Should they have none, seek their permission to hire a catering company to care for your provisions for you. Conclusion Being crowned the best maid of honour or best man is possibly the best thing you can do before your best friend moves on to their next stage of life. Since most bachelor parties are once in a lifetime experience, why not rent a yacht for a party in Singapore? That way, you and your closest friends get the chance to unwind, enjoy good food and unlimited drinks, and savour the cool breeze and open seas that only a yacht charter can offer.

You have been planning this yacht trip for months now, and as the day grows nearer, the anticipation fills you up to the brim. Since it may be a while before you can go on the next getaway, you have to prepare for this one sufficiently to make the most out of it. While yacht trips do not usually last for more than a day, there are still some items you ought to have with you aboard a private yacht, some of which are important while others are simply to help you have a grand time. 1. Extra set of clothes When travelling out at sea, do not just plan your outfits for the day of departure and arrival; always have an extra set of emergency clothes on standby. You never know if an accident may happen onboard or if your friends egg you on for an impromptu dive into the sea. Pro tip: Even though these clothes are technically spares, make sure that they are still Instagrammable because who knows, you might chance upon a magnificent sunset and would want to take a picture with it. 2. Ziploc bags If you indeed go for a swim, pack along a Ziploc bag with you to separate and keep your wet bathing suit or shorts from the clean and dry items and clothes. A regular plastic bag works fine, but aside from being tidy, a Ziploc bag works best to seal your wet wear from other things inside your bag. As always, having extra Ziploc bags will render you a saviour for your forgetful family and friends! 3. Sunscreen Since you are aboard a yacht, spending most of your time outdoors where the sun and the cooling sea is a given. Regardless of whether you plan to sunbathe or swim, bring along a bottle of sunscreen with you and lather it on every few hours. The last thing that anyone wants after an amazing getaway is painful sunburns and peeling skin! Pro tip: If possible, purchase a sunscreen that has an anti-jellyfish formulation that would protect you from painful jellyfish stings if it happens, which can easily ruin your trip. 4. Cash Regardless of whether you are planning your romantic weekend yacht getaway or a yachts party in Singapore, having extra cash on hand is vital because you never really know when a situation might call for it. While relying on your credit or debit cards is tempting and convenient, payment terminals are not always accessible; what more while you are out at sea. It is always a good idea to bring cash around for emergency purposes. Conclusion As cliche as it sounds, over-preparation helps, especially should you be going on a yacht with kids and other family members in tow. While planning for a fun itinerary is essential, factoring in the needs of other family members also helps to ensure that you pack not just for yourself but other miscellaneous items for your family members should the need arise. With Valencia Yachts, you can rest assured that our crew will take care of your and your family’s needs onboard to ensure a fulfilling and fun weekend out at sea. Our five-hour charter starts at SGD 1,200 for weekdays and SGD 1,600 SGD for weekends. Take advantage of this deal today!
