What our clients are saying …
“I met Marti some twenty five years ago. I have utilized her yachts for educational seminars, networking events, team member awards and for cruising the Bay during special events. Marti knows how to run a ship. Her crew has always exemplified the best in customer service, and her food presentations are amongst the very best! I can personally guarantee you will not be disappointed!”

“Our retreat yesterday couldn’t have been better. Everyone on the team felt privileged to spend the day in such a beautiful setting. When we finished our business, the captain took us for a cruise around the bay.. Our out-of-town guests were thrilled to get a waterside view of the Golden Gate bridge. Even the native San Franciscans in our group were rendered speechless while we cruised the shoreline viewing the iconic sites of our city. One colleague commented that he didn’t want to descend the steps to the main deck because then it would mean that our day on the yacht had ended. It was a magical day for us, both productive and inspiring. I can’t imagine a better venue and experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Director of Communications
“Our company plans many head-of-state visits and welcomes world dignitaries to the Bay Area. It is my privilege to recommend the services of Yacht Connections International. Our high-end clientele expect perfection and Marti McMahon and her crew have always exceeded our expectations. I have had the pleasure of planning many events over the years on all of Marti’s yachts, ranging from a group of Latin American Ambassadors, Presidents of Universities, The Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, to the Presidents of many countries. Every detail was capably and graciously managed. I hope you will have the pleasure of entertaining your guests on one of Marti’s luxurious yachts and creating memories that will last a life time! ”
President and CEO
“We would unconditionally recommend your services to anyone seeking an exceptional event encompassing five-star cuisine, impeccable yet unobtrusive wait staff and attention to detail, down to the sauces on the desserts and the centerpieces on the tables. All of the above could only be made better by the fact that it is all presented on board a luxury yacht.
That you and your staff exceeded the expectations of this sophisticated group is a testament to the outstanding event you provided. We are all eagerly awaiting another big birthday in the family so we can all relive the experience once again. Bravo and thank you again for a job well done.”

For over 6 months, I worked with you and your staff to plan an extra-ordinary event for our friends and that we did! Our guests were amazed!
