Your guests are sure to be impressed by the quality of the yachts and the fine food and service we can offer you.

For that less formal occasion, we can offer smaller boats for a daytime outing or evening sail. A boat party is so much fun. Why not consider a private boat charter for your next occasion?

There are so many packages with a wide variety of menus and bar offerings s to choose from. Outside caterers are also welcome aboard to provide special food for various ethnic groups. Our mega yachts are perfect to cater to the needs of our indian clients who typically have large guest count for their lovely events—especially for the indian weddings and Sangeets.

If private or deck charters are above your budgetary constraints for a particular occasion, you might want to consider reservations for lunch ,brunch, or dinner aboard one of Francesca’s mega yachts for a general public cruise with on -board entertainment.  For something less formal and lots of fun with onboard DJ, open bar and light food fare, she can present you with options for the Live After Five cruises departing from South Street Seaport almost every night,
