Choosing The Right Yacht For Your Party Needs

Max 2 3At Valencia Yachts, we have 5 yachts for your chartering needs – Valencia, Victoria, Maximum 1, Maximum 2 and Star Of The Sea. They are all able to serve with your party needs. Depending on the size of the party audience, the different vessels cater to different group sizes.

Choosing which yacht to use for party hosting is one of the most important factors when planning a yacht party in Singapore. Here are some tips on how to choose the right yacht for your party, taking into consideration the number of guests, amenities, and budget:

Consider the number of guests

The first step in choosing the right yacht is to determine the number of guests that will be attending your party. Make sure to choose a yacht that can comfortably accommodate all your guests. You don’t want your guests feeling cramped or uncomfortable during the party. Try to get at least 30 to have the minimum atmosphere of party mood onboard. Star Of The Sea Superyacht can hold up to 150 guests for a dockside party as the capacity is larger.

Look for amenities

Make a list of amenities that you want on the yacht, such as air conditioning, sound system, karaoke system, barbecue, gathering spaces, bathrooms and cabins for resting purposes. Check with the yacht charter company to ensure that the yacht you’re considering has these amenities.

Consider the budget

Yacht charter prices vary based on the size, type, and amenities of the yacht. Determine your budget and choose a yacht that fits within your budget. Keep in mind that there may be additional costs, such as fuel, food, and beverages. Normally the charter costs for about 30 persons start from $3,000 onwards.

Type of party and entertainers

Is it a more friendly personal with social gatherings of family and friends, or is it a corporate type? Besides the party music DJ, will there be a show host (in the likes of a stand-up comedian), or even a specially invited famous entertainer onboard? There are yacht charters which have done magic shows before. 

For best practices of party organising and hosting, try to hold the party from 6pm to 10pm. The night time atmosphere is most favourable. And it’s the time of the day when it’s least hot.

Planning The Guest List And Invitations

This guest list and invitation process can be quite a lengthy process. This process of pre-event onboard the yacht involves a timeline of planning, calling, emailing, and even live publishing online (unless the party event is totally private and out of bounds to public).

Here are some tips on how to plan the guest list and create invitations that match the theme of the party:

Plan the guest list: Determine the number of guests you want to invite to your party and create a list of potential guests. Consider your budget, the size of the yacht, and the type of party when planning your guest list.

Choose a theme

Decide on a theme for your yacht party and incorporate it into your invitations. Whether it’s a nautical theme, a tropical theme, or a glamorous theme, make sure your invitations reflect the style and ambiance of the party. It can also be for Halloween party celebrations. It’s possible to charter a yacht for party boat music with Halloween costume decorations.

Create the invitations

Once you have chosen a theme, design your invitations to match the theme. Use colors, graphics, and fonts that reflect the theme of the party. Include important details, such as the date, time, location, dress code, and RSVP information.

Send out the invitations

Send out the invitations at least two to three weeks before the party to give your guests enough time to plan and RSVP. Send them through email, social media, or traditional mail, depending on your guests’ preferences.

Follow up with guests

Keep track of the RSVPs and follow up with guests who have not responded. Make sure to inform the yacht charter company of the final guest count at least a week before the party.

Attire of guests

The attire standards for a yacht music dance party has no standard requirements. However, shorts, shirts and slippers are the typical attire. Afterall, you are not allowed to put on your shoes when you are inside the yacht. You’ll be asked to keep your footwear in the shoe boxes provided by the crew. Also, wearing jeans can be up to you but usually we would not really advise it as it’ll be uncomfortable for a sunny weather (even rainy one) in Singapore. There is no 4 seasons in Singapore where cold weather is highly expected outdoors.

Important note

This is a yacht party held in the waters. It’s no longer on land anymore, so it’s important that guests don’t show up late. Just like a bus charter to Malaysia, the host who organises the party must ensure everyone who have RSVP and made payment to confirm their places are present at the dock or marina punctually.

Planning the guest list and invitations is an important part of organizing a yacht party in Singapore. By following these tips, you can create invitations that set the tone for your party and ensure that your guests have a memorable experience on the yacht.

Create The Perfect Party Atmosphere

Creating a perfect party atmosphere in the boat helps guests make their experiences very unforgettable.

Here are some tips on how to transform the yacht into a party venue and set the mood for the party:


Choose decorations that match the theme of your party and add a festive touch to the yacht. Use balloons, banners, and streamers to decorate the yacht’s interior and exterior. You can also add flowers, candles, and other decorative elements to create a more elegant atmosphere.

Important note: Make sure before the yacht docks again after being out at sea, you must ensure that balloons are removed from the exterior. Some marinas may fine you for not doing so. One15 Marina has strict criteria for this and will impose a fine if you don’t comply.


Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood for the party. Use colored LED lights to create a fun and festive ambiance, or opt for softer lighting to create a more intimate atmosphere. You can also use string lights to add a romantic touch to the yacht.


Choose music that matches the theme of your party and appeals to your guests’ tastes. Create a playlist that includes a mix of upbeat and slower songs, and make sure to have a sound system that can accommodate the size of the yacht and the number of guests.

By incorporating these elements into your party planning, you can create the perfect party atmosphere on a yacht in Singapore. Remember to consider the size of the yacht and the number of guests when planning decorations, lighting, and music. By doing so, you can ensure that your guests have an enjoyable and memorable experience on the yacht.

Organising The Activities

Is it going to be a music party all day or all night long? Is it going to be a totally private entertainment event, out of bounds to other uninvited? Or will there be comedy talk shows or magician tricks shows in addition to dance music?

Of course, this is dependent on the scale of the event – the budget of party planning and the planned ticket prices you are going to sell for. There can be some estimation of ticket sales too.

Choose activities that match the theme

When planning activities, make sure to choose ones that match the theme of your party. For example, if you’re hosting a beach party, consider water sports such as kayaking, paddleboarding, or even setting up a beach volleyball court on a nearby island.

Add games and competitions

Games and competitions are a great way to keep your guests engaged and entertained on a yacht party. Choose games that match the theme of your party, such as trivia or scavenger hunts, and award prizes to the winners.

Host a themed dinner party

Consider hosting a themed dinner party on your yacht to add a touch of elegance to your celebration. You can work with the yacht charter company to arrange a gourmet dinner with a menu that matches the theme of your party. When it comes to yacht food and drinks, you can either do your own packeted food or food catering, or you can do a BBQ food party as well.

Planning the refreshments

Planning food and drinks is important for any yacht party. Create a menu that matches the theme of your party and takes into account your guests’ dietary requirements. Consider the number of guests and plan for enough food and drinks to last throughout the party.

Yacht Party Etiquette Considerations

Yacht party etiquette is an essential aspect of ensuring that your guests feel comfortable and the party runs smoothly on a yacht in Singapore. Here are some tips on yacht party etiquette to keep in mind when hosting a yacht party:

Safety First

Safety is of utmost importance when it comes to yacht parties. Make sure to brief your guests on the safety rules before the party starts. This includes the location of safety equipment and procedures in case of an emergency. Please avoid jumping into the sea if the captain and crew do not permit. In case of drowning, there will be lots of consequences to bear. The captain and crew staff are always on standby should any occurrences ever take place.

Respect the yacht

When hosting a yacht party, it’s important to respect the yacht and keep it clean and tidy. Make sure your guests do not leave any trash behind, and avoid wearing shoes that can scratch or damage the yacht’s surface.

Consider your guests’ comfort

Make sure your guests feel comfortable on the yacht. Provide ample seating and shade if necessary, and ensure that there are enough snacks, drinks, and refreshments available. Also, consider the weather and prepare for changes in temperature or weather conditions. That’s why it’s so important to check the yachts for the amenities available. Valencia Yachts allow viewings to be done beforehand so you can decide whether which yacht is suitable.

Be mindful of noise levels

Be respectful of other boats and yachts in the vicinity and keep noise levels under control. Remember that loud music or shouting can disturb other boaters and yacht owners.

Don’t overdo it

While it’s tempting to go all out on a yacht party, it’s important to remember that safety and comfort come first. Avoid over-serving alcohol and ensure that your guests are not too intoxicated to enjoy the party or handle themselves safely on the yacht.

By following these tips on yacht party etiquette, you can ensure that your guests have a comfortable and enjoyable experience on the yacht party in Singapore. Remember that safety, respect, and consideration for others are key to making your yacht party a success.
