The Essential Checklist for a Miami Yacht Party
Once you have become a yacht owner, your boat instantly becomes the place to be. All of your friends and family will want to party on board and it won’t take much convincing for them to accept your invitation. In fact, one of the main reasons that so many Florida residents aim to become owners is to be able to entertain in style on the water.
So, what exactly should you have on your list in order to prepare an unforgettable Miami yacht party?
Planning the menu can be tricky because you will want snacks that can stand up well to the Florida heat and humidity. And, of course, they should be delicious any time of day and long into the night.
Wraps can be a valid alternative to complicated sandwiches which tend to fall apart and be difficult to eat on a yacht. Plus, the ingredients can be adjusted to fit your guests’ taste. Spicy dips can be easy to refill throughout the day. Plus, dishes with fresh fruit and vegetables tend to be more appetizing on hot cruising days. On the Astondoa 65 Top Deck, for example, you can delight your guests with a menu of gourmet grilled items.
What would any yacht party be without a cool cocktail? Select a drink that fits the season and your guests’ preferences, but also think about making it a tasty signature. There are endless recipes out there for yachties’ favorite Caribbean cocktails and Miami-inspired drinks. And remember, plan to have a lot of ice on hand!
Think about giving your guests something to remember this amazing party by, and feel free to get creative here. We suggest a personal touch, such as customized champagne flutes, scented candles with the yacht’s name embossed in the wax or a take-home bartending kit with all the ingredients for the party’s signature drink.
Another great idea is to have monogramed flip flops or deck slippers made for the party. guests will be comfortable even when they take off their regular shoes before stepping onboard. Plus, they can take the specialized footwear home as a memento.
Be sure not to overlook the music, floral arrangements and fresh table clothes. For friends from out of town, consider organizing transportation or accommodations for guests after the party has wrapped up.
