Vancouver Yacht Charter Costs, Corporate Party Themes & Other FAQsPosted on 29 Aug 18
As one Vancouver’s most popular corporate event and wedding venues, we get many questions about our luxury yacht. Of course, most questions lead to, “how much is it to charter your yacht”? and “how does it compare with other event venues like yours?” Today we asked our team to compile a short list of frequently asked questions to give you more information about chartering our yacht.
5 FAQs on Yacht Rentals for a Party or Event
1. What are common events happen on the Pacific Yacht?
Pacific Yacht Charters hosts corporate events such as client appreciation charters, company holiday parties, employee recognition, and networking events. Consider our Yacht as the most private meeting space for a board meeting, or a training session; with full service for meals and beverage service throughout the charter time.
2. How many people can you accommodate on board?
There are three different styles of food service that work well on board: buffet, plated, or cocktail style. For buffet and plated meals, we can seat up to 120 guests. For a cocktail style event, we can accommodate up to 264 guests, but like to cap the count at 240 so there is comfortable room for all guests.
The Yacht is also available for dockside events; this would mean the Yacht stays moored at dock throughout your event in beautiful Coal Harbour behind the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Our yacht comes alive similar to a rooftop bar and lounge, where your guests are free to come and go as they wish. Throughout a dockside event, we can accommodate up to 400 guests as people come and go through an evening. We still cap our count at 264 at any one time.
3. What are the various sailing routes?
We have 3 incredible sailing routes available. Route one takes you and your guests on a 3 or 4 hour tour of Deep Cove and Indian Arm’s raw natural beauty. Route two features a 3, or more hour, venture out to Point Atkinson, also known as Lighthouse Park. Guests get incredible views of the Lions Gate Bridge, North Shore Mountains, and the famous harbourfront architecture of West Vancouver. Last but not least, we have our 3 hour Vancouver harbour tour that boasts the best views of Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, Granville Island, English Bay, and False Creek.
You are always welcome to add additional hours to allow the right amount of time to achieve your event goals and activities.
4. What are some of the successful themed events you’ve had onboard?
We often theme events to compliment a corporate brand or message to provide subtle cues to guests about the hosts. We have had casinos, Hippy parties, Hawaiian themes and Cigars and Scotch on the water. One of the funnest themes was a pirate theme, and yes, guests dressed up in pirate garb. Also check out our Christmas party article for ideas as well.
5. How much does a typical yacht charter cost?
During peak season (April 1 – October 14th), our Yacht Charter has two pricing tiers based on the day of the week. Monday through Thursday, charter fees start at $4995.00 for a minimum 3 hour engagement. For events taking place Friday through Sunday, charter fees start at $6595.00 for a minimum 4 hour engagement.
