Marina Nazario | February 22, 2022

Party Theme Ideas For Luxury Yacht Charters.

A memorable yacht charter is made possible by an excellent crew, exciting itinerary, and comfort on board. After choosing a top charter destination, contact your charter broker to find the best yacht for your holiday. They’ll provide you with a  preference sheet that covers dietary restrictions, your favorite foods, beverage options, and special requests.

If you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or crave an excuse to dress up, write that on the preference sheet so the crew can prepare for your charter. They’ll help you turn a modest night into a memorable event — here are 5 theme night ideas to get the party started onboard your next yacht charter.

1. Welcome To The Jungle

There’s a lot of room for creativity with a jungle-themed party. The sundeck can be decorated with plants, flowers, greenery, fairy lights, and stuffed animals. Limitless costume ideas may include dressing in cheetah print, snakeskin, tiger stripes, or zebra print, or dressing as explorers on a safari.

When it comes to food and drinks, the chef might prepare a mystery jungle juice cocktail, deviled eagle eggs, African meatballs, or elephant ear palmiers.

Best yacht charter for jungle theme party: SWEET EMOCEAN, a 116’ Azimut, which has an incredible amount of deck space to host an open-air party.

2. Hawaiian Luau

Hawaiian cocktails

You don’t need to be in Hawaii to enjoy a tropical luau. Host a traditional Polynesian party on your next yacht charter. With enough advanced notice, the crew may be able to arrange for hula dancers and live music to come onboard the yacht. The delicious menu for a luau may include laulau (meat wrapped on taro leaves), poke, or haupia (coconut pudding). Be sure to don your best grass skirts, flower leis, and coconut top.

Best yacht charter for a Hawaiian luau: IL CAPO, a 110’ Broward, which has a beautifully laid out wet bar on the flybridge and aft deck.

3. Martini Party

There’re different routes you can take with a martini-themed party. Traditionally, it follows a James Bond type of style with a black-tie attire and sophisticated decorations. The crew could turn an enclosed flybridge into a speakeasy with mood lighting and jazz music.

The menu may include oysters, smoked salmon canapes, and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. To get really into it, request a mixologist to come on board to shake/stir professionally crafted martinis as you enjoy the night with friends.

Best yacht charter for a martini party: VIVACE, a 102’ Alpha Yachts, which has an outdoor lounge overlooking the pool balcony that’s perfect for sipping a cocktail under the stars.

4. Disco Night

DJ on a yacht

Hear us out — the ‘70s rocked. The ultimate disco night onboard a yacht charter may include disco balls, strobe lights, neon balloons, metallic confetti, and lava lamps. And let’s not forget the best part — iconic music.

Request a DJ to come onboard and mix the best disco of the 70s (which should include Bee Gees, KC and the Sunshine Band, Jackson, and Donna Summer, of course). Costumes can get creative with one-piece jumpsuits, flared jeans, bright accessories, or anything that sparkles.

Best yacht charter for disco night: BUNDALONG, an 80’ Sunreef, which has a professional DJ setup with industry-standard Pioneer DJ deck, Bose L1 speaker system, and sound-sensitive disco light.

5. Arabian Nights

A Moroccan-themed party is colorful, elegant, and exotic. A dimly lit salon may be the perfect setting as the crew can decorate the room with gold sequence, fake candles, incense, flowers, cushions, gold silverware, and textured prints.

Additional requests may include hookahs, a henna tattoo artist, or belly dancers. With traditional Andalusian music on in the background, enjoy a Moroccan menu of zaalouk, chicken tagine, and couscous.

Best yacht charter for Arabian nights: PLAN A, a 130’ Westport, which has a spacious formal area ideal for elegant events.
