How to organize a private party on a boat in LA?

The only thing that can make a boat party even better is having a good idea of how to organize one. But have no fear, because we’ve prepared a short guide on how to kick off a fantastic event on a boat that everyone won’t soon forget. Trust us, your planning will be short and sweet once you browse through our expert tips. So hop on board and start reading now!

Set a budget and stick to it.  Figure out the total costs you’d like to pay for the event organization. It’s easy to get carried away and spend more than you can afford. In order to avoid that, consider how much you’re willing to pay for everything: from food and drinks to decorations and entertainment. Once you’ve nailed the calculations down, make sure to write the total number down and keep it in mind when hammering other elements present on your planning list.

Pick the right boat.  When choosing the right private boat, make sure to consider its size, type, and whether it fits into your price range. We know that going for a big, spacious boat can be tempting. But if money is tight and you have a group of about 20 or less, why not pick a smaller one? You can organize a sit-down dinner and have more intimate conversations with each other, which can only add charm to your event! When it comes to types of boats available for private rental in Los Angeles you can find yachts, catamarans, and sailboats. Each one has its own pros and cons depending on what kind of private party experience you want, so we highly suggest researching on the Internet to find out which one would work best as the ideal setting for your unique private event. 

Decide on food options. The food you serve at your party should be as fun and unique as the event itself. You can match it to your party theme or serve your personal favorites like pizza and beer, or sushi and champagne. Truthfully, the possibilities are endless! But we can suggest picking something that is easy to prepare and eat — especially when you’re planning to rent a small boat that doesn’t have a dedicated area where everyone can eat together.

Pick a theme. Nothing elevates a party more than a great theme! Think of something personal that will show everyone that it’s your party and add some decorations here and there. Just make sure the theme you choose is something that everyone will enjoy and can actually pull off. Maybe your dream is to visit Hawaii? Then pull off your own Hawaiian party and ask everyone to wear tropical clothing. Everyone will be ready to say “Aloha” to your great boat party. 

Plan your space. Will the boat accommodate everyone invited? Do you need a space for eating and dancing? Make sure the boat has enough seats. If it doesn’t, check if you can rent folding chairs from an event rental company, or bring blankets and pillows so people can sit wherever they like.

Make sure you have the right boat crew. Your safety during the boat party should be your main priority! Make sure that the crew you’re hiring is professional and experienced with handling boats. They should know how to handle any emergencies that may arise during your party, including potential weather conditions or other unexpected occurrences. The safety of everyone on board is also incredibly important—the more skilled and knowledgeable they are concerning their responsibilities, the better off all guests will be!

No matter if you want to plan a private birthday party for one of your kids, throw a wedding reception on the water or simply kick back and chill, we hope these tips will come in handy and help you plan a great event on a boat without a fuss! And no such event happens without a great boat – lucky for you we’ve got a curated list of the best private party boats in LA. So book your ideal party boat today and get ready to set sail!

Booked 🛥️59ft Yacht 🎤Karaoke in LA at Island Boat MDR: Dock 55
I liked that the captain was very attentive to the current weather conditions and alerted us to heavy fogs that suddenly rolled in. He told us we had to dock but that we could still have fun.
