PERFECT FOR A PROFESSIONAL EVENT
The majority of the boats we provide have state of the art audiovisual equipment so presentations can be shown easily, and versatile layouts to accommodate guests in different configurations. After being in business meetings all day it’s always would be nice to experience something unique with your invitees by getting a change of scenery: a dinner cruise on a smart comfortable modern yacht will always be the highlight of their trip to S. Florida.
As mentioned before we can plan and accommodate board meetings, sales meetings, breakfast, lunch, or dinner cruises, product promotions, team building, and even reward ceremonies. A when boarding one of our boats, begins with a “welcome aboard drink”, and then shown to the (in most cases) open top deck where you can get a view of the beautiful scenery with the spectacular back-drop of the city of Miami.
After that, the guests are invited to the other decks where you can mingle and have some drinks with your colleagues, usually about an hour long. And of course you have the option of doing presentations or team building exercise, then dinner will take place. After dinner is when you can relax with the people around you, a great advantage of having your corporate meeting on one of our boats is the atmosphere can be relaxing, and you have a captive audience.
Some groups prefer a morning brunch or lunch cruise with non-alcoholic beverages. This is a preferred business-type cruise when there are a lot of business topics and material to cover. Business sessions can be held both in the morning, followed by a light lunch and other topics in the afternoon, etc. As we mentioned before, the advantage is that you have a captive audience and great scenery during the break-outs.
The cruises typically stay in the Intra-Coastal waterway and its extensions and tributaries and also in Biscayne Bay all of which are in protected or semi protected waters. So everything is calm and there are no waves, no rocking and no sea-sickness. The corporate party yachts that we provide range from 25 guests to 600. For larger capacity can use more than one vessel.
All the commercial party boats we provide are inspected annually by the US Coastguard and have an up-to-date USCG Certificate of Inspection. All are covered with their own liability insurance of up to $1,000,000 although many corporations prefer to supplement this by purchasing insurance of their own which is relatively inexpensive to do.
