Choosing The Right Yacht
First and foremost, it’s important to choose the right yacht for your event. Consider the size of your group and the duration of your trip, as well as any additional amenities you may want on board, such as a karaoke lounge, BBQ pit or sun deck. It’s also a good idea to research and compare different yacht charter companies to find the best fit for your budget and needs.
Food Catering Options
Once you’ve chosen your yacht, it’s time to start thinking about catering. While many yacht charter companies offer in-house catering options, you may also choose to bring in your own catering team or even have the event catered by a local restaurant. Be sure to consider any dietary restrictions or preferences of your guests and communicate these to your catering team.
Type Of Corporate Activities
Entertainment is another important aspect of your corporate event on a yacht charter. Will you have a DJ or live music? Will there be any team-building activities or games? Consider the theme and atmosphere of your event and choose entertainment options that align with this. It’s also a good idea to have some backup options in case of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
In addition to entertainment, consider incorporating some team-building activities into your event. A yacht charter provides a unique setting for activities such as scavenger hunts or sailing lessons. These can help to foster a sense of camaraderie and teamwork among your team members.
Besides the above, you can also do simple team bonding activities or other water sport activities like kayaking, stand up paddle board, or even fishing together. The activities can come from some informal interest groups within the company.
Decor and theme are also important considerations for your corporate event on a yacht charter. Will you go for a more formal, elegant vibe or a relaxed, beachy theme? Choose decor and theme elements that match the overall atmosphere of your event and make sure to communicate these to your yacht charter company and any vendors you may be working with.
Which Time Of The Day
Another factor to consider is the timing of your event. A morning or afternoon charter may be more suitable for a business meeting, while an evening charter allows for a more social atmosphere. Keep in mind that Singapore can be quite hot and humid, so it’s a good idea to have plenty of shade and hydration options available for your guests.
Yacht Capacity Limit
Corporations are mega in size in Singapore. Many are multinationals hailing from USA, UK, Japan and even local corporations like DBS. A department can be huge.
However, do ensure that you plan the headcount properly and that the yacht complies with the people capacity limit, which also includes the crew and captain onboard. It may only be half of the department that can come onboard the yacht. Or it can split into separate event days.
Finally, don’t forget the logistics of hosting a corporate event on a yacht charter. Make sure you have a clear itinerary for the day and communicate this to your guests in advance. Consider any necessary transportation arrangements and be prepared for any potential delays or issues that may arise.
By following these tips, you can plan a successful and memorable corporate event on a yacht charter in Singapore. Whether you’re looking to host a business meeting, team-building retreat, or client appreciation event, a yacht charter provides the perfect setting for any corporate occasion.
