Whether you’re looking to impress clients with a Monaco Grand Prix event or using the yacht as an function venue for a trade show or conference, corporate yacht charters are the ideal way to maximise the visibility (and memorability) of your brand.
Imagine your VIP clients mingling on the sundeck in Monaco, drinking champagne and eating canapés as the F1 cars roar past, or dressing up for a themed yacht party during the Cannes Film Festival. Yacht parties are an extraordinary branding opportunity.
Done right, your brand is the one people will be talking about at the end of the event, due to the incredible yacht party you hosted in extraordinary surrounds.
Choosing the Right Corporate Charter Yacht
It’s really important to choose the right luxury yacht for your specific corporate needs. That’s where your yacht charter management company comes in.
For instance, if you’re planning a glittering yacht party to showcase your corporate brand, you’ll want a yacht with large deck area and a glamorous interior, as well as state of the art entertainment systems and impressive features like a deck Jacuzzi. The effectiveness of yacht parties as a branding exercise depends very much on making a spectacular impression.
If you have high numbers of guests, you’ll need to talk with your charter yacht broker about passenger licences and accommodation on board. Charter yacht management companies are also on hand to assist in the organisation of your corporate yacht charter, from yacht branding to catering and entertainment for yacht parties.
Those chartering a yacht during a conference such as MIPIM or TFWA will probably want to have a ‘static’ yacht charter whereby the yacht doesn’t move from the dock. Such a charter enables you to festoon the yacht in your company branding and invite large numbers of guests onboard for yacht parties. The berth you choose will also directly impact your visibility and success during the event, so talk to your broker early to secure a high-impact berth.
Alternatively, if you really want to wow a select group of clients, you can plan a spectacular cruising itinerary. Here, factors such aswatertoys, alfresco dining, and yacht Jacuzzis become particularly attractive.
The logistics of a corporate yacht charter can be daunting if you’re trying to do it all on your own, but it’s made extremely easy by choosing a reputable charter yacht management company.
