#EventProfs 6 Key Planning Factors to Keep Your Event Afloat

Tips From: http://theeventu.com/6-key-planning-factors-keep-event-afloat/

1) Size Matters: Make sure to match the size of the group to the right boat. Having a firm handle on the guest count as early as possible is essential. Yachts and boats are not the best venue options for groups that have the potential to fluctuate a good deal in size. Unlike land options, where you can get some extra space for overflow, there are no options for extra space on a yacht or other smaller vessels.

Yacht Connections Note: Here at #YachtConnections we do request your final guest count 10-business days in advance of your private group Boat Cruise #YachtCruise in #SanFrancisco & we have two Yachts to accommodate your group size… from 12-guests to 130-guests…California Spirit  | Yacht Lady

Plan A Boat Event San Francisco

2) Know Your Guests: Boats are wonderful event spaces…for the right kinds of guests… You must know that your guests are perfectly fine with being afloat for several hours.

Yacht Connections Note: If guests are concerned about being seasick on a Boat, rest assured that the California Spirit and the Yacht Lady were built for the sea! And in the San Francisco Bay the waters are very calm in comparison and our President who gets seasick on other Boats does not on hers per her customization’s, read about it here.

4) Factor in Parking
Also, make sure you still have enough parking for your guests… So make sure you provide a shuttle service or another way for guests to find a nearby place to park.

Yacht Connections Note:  We are happy to assist in arranging transportation to our Dock at Pier 40 or there is many area Parking Lots & Metered parking that are accessible to your guests. Directions and Parking Info Here.

California Spirit Yacht San Francisco

“It was a magical evening and I sincerely appreciate all of your efforts to create an amazing experience for everyone that attended. The food was fantastic, the staff attentive and the boat absolutely stunning.” Stephen Revetria – Vice President & General Manager, Giants Enterprises

Yacht Dining Menu San Francisco

“The cruise was fabulous! Many thanks to you and the entire staff for all you did to make this a successful event for our group. Keith and the team took excellent care of us, and the food and drink were delicious. It was a pleasure working with the team on the arrangements; everyone was so helpful and responsive every step of the way, and all your suggestions were spot on.” Karen Rihs, Oracle

Yacht Dining Menu San Francisco

I received nothing but great feedback on the food, drinks, and staff. The weather couldn’t have been any better and the yacht was perfect. There is plenty of space and restrooms.

Our banquet was San Francisco Favorites, while it wasn’t a sit down dinner it was very filling, satisfying and tasty. Everyone I worked with at YCI really went above and beyond. Highly recommend.” – Maritza 

Yacht Dining San Francisco

“Just celebrated my 40th birthday aboard California Spirit and it was the best birthday ever! Phenomenal boat, amazing service and fantastic food and drinks. I couldn’t have been happier with my decision to have my party here.

YCI is not only very easy to work with and responsive, but they are also very professional and friendly. Once on-board the boat, it’s 5-star service with top-notch food and handmade cocktails. Amazing Ahi taco appetizers, gorgeous Mediterranean spread with fresh veggies (and not just your typical veggie platter – fresh asparagus and many others too!), beautiful fresh fruit platter, delicious hummus, yummy Flatbreads, super cute Chinese chicken salads in little to-go Chinese food boxes, mushroom sushi (for my vegan guests)….everything was delicious and it was easy to provide options for the various dietary restrictions of my guests. They freshly squeezed limes for our margaritas too!

I looked at other boats and California Spirit is, by far, the nicest. Definitely tour their two boats if you are considering renting a boat for any reason. Originally, I was a little concerned that my group was only 30 people and that the boat was so big, but it was perfect! The 3 hours on the bay goes by way too fast; everyone wished we had more time.

You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with YCI for a charter! In fact, you’ll find yourself looking for another reason to get back on one of their boats!” – Jenna G.

“The YCI was a beautiful boat! Excellent staff, who were just the kindest people looking to make your experience as authentic as possible. It didn’t feel too packed or stuffy. There was always a place to sit. Open bar. A live band upstairs, and a full spread of food including two different kinds of noodles made with whatever you wanted on the spot, bread bowls for clam chowder, sourdough rolls, and much more. It was a phenomenal evening that we talk about every chance we get. YCI is absolutely a flawless experience.” – Whitney

“Thank you for creating such a memorable and special experience for us on our wedding day. We are so grateful to you and all of your staff for welcoming us aboard the California Spirit and being so hospitable. It was a gift.  The food was exquisite, the service was first-class, and the ambiance was incredible.” – Dilon & Adrian

Yacht Connections Fresh Food Cooked Aboard Yacht

“We booked Yacht Connections for our Company outing. This outing was especially important for our staff since it was organized to appreciate all of the work our staff has done since 2006.

Yacht Connections was INCREDIBLE.

– Wait staff was attentive, polite, professional, cheerful, helpful
– Wait staff were always refilling glasses (wine, beer, champagne always refilled promptly)
– We were greeting on the yacht perfectly and were made to feel important and welcomed
– The yacht itself was beautiful, clean, fancy and amazing
– Food was GREAT
– Drinks (premium wine/beer/champagne) were amazing

After the event and an amazingly happy company outing, we decided to send an additional gratuity to the wait staff.

We can’t wait to book again. I highly recommend them, without a second thought. Thanks Yacht Connections. You’ve exponentially exceeded my particularly high expectations for myself and for the well being and care of our Company’s highly valued staff. We thank you” – Olivia

*ask about our “special” Décor upgrades.

Signature Buffets

We always recommend our Signature Buffets so that guests can enjoy the views of San Francisco – with a seated meal they don’t feel like they can move about to take photos.  At night they will have the opportunity to see Alcatraz a glow, going under the Golden Gate bridge and the SF Skyline lit-up.  We don’t skimp on quality for the buffet, and actually add our house décor and action stations at no extra charge.

If your event requires a Seated Meal and/or your having a presentation, we suggest upgrading the 3 hr. min. cruise to 4 hrs. so that your guests don’t miss out on the World Famous San Francisco views

Captain Bill Yacht Connections

“The boat is just beautiful…the food was delicious and it was wonderful to be able to have everyone seated downstairs comfortably together.  Your crew could not have been more helpful throughout our trip.  Captain Bill even honored my request to go by AT&T Park which our guests really loved…a unique experience.”  Leticia Avalos  Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company

McCovey Cove Yacht Connections Private Yacht Charter

“My husband and I had our wedding aboard the California Spirit and had an AMAZING experience from beginning to end.   They also worked within our budget without any hassle at all.  The yacht was absolutely beautiful and clean and perfect for an intimate wedding and super-fun celebration afterwards (we fit 70 people total for the cruise with dinner/dancing and it wasn’t overcrowded at all).

Captain Bill married my husband and me in a short sweet ceremony.  The staff was so nice and hospitable and were able to keep our celebration ON SCHEDULE which I’m so grateful for.

I highly highly highly recommend using YCI for any special occasion- I guarantee it will be a worry free experience.” – Candice

Captian Bill Wedding

Peter and I had been widows for nine years and when we decided to marry again, we wanted our celebration to be elegant, memorable and fun.  Thank you YCI for exceeding our expectations.” – JoAnn

More about our Captain:

Bill Nadauld, Captain

Captain William “Bill” Nadauld is the perfect poster Captain. His life-long interest in boats began at the tender age of ten with the construction of his first motorized vessel. He has been operating cruise vessels on the San Francisco Bay for many years and has been Port Captain for Yacht Connections for several years. His professional sea time includes commercial fishing in Alaska, charter vessels off the Washington coast, and as a riverboat Captain on several U.S. inland bay, sound and river waters.

He brings nearly 45 years of direct, hands on experience with marine engine, navigation, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and emergency fire and life saving systems. Guests are awed by his nautical experience and his knowledge of historical facts of the Bay and beyond. Brides request for him to officiate their on board wedding. Knowing that maintenance is second only to proper crew training, Captain Bill shares a large dose of common sense and real world experience essential in extracting the best possible performance from all of us at Yacht Connections.

We appreciate this lovely unsolicited email from one of our clients, in regards to the Yacht Connection Director of Sales:

Jeanavive Janssen Yacht Connections

Hello!

I am writing this as a humble note of appreciation for the outstanding customer service recently provided to me by your team member, Jeanavive Janssen. She was a great help to me in my research about your gorgeous yachts and unprecedented service. Her knowledge of the process is wonderful and her remarkable ideas and pragmatic communication skills are to be applauded.

Jeanavive is an impressive professional who actually seemed genuinely interested in helping answer my many questions in an informed manner while always being swift to respond via email and phone. Unfortunately, we both know that is a rare commodity these days. Hence we are extremely grateful for the time and effort she exhausted on our behalf. We are still trying to sort out dates, however I am very grateful for the accommodating and delightful experience thus far, no matter if we engage or not. That said, we certainly are hoping to see you all soon on one your magnificent floating paradises.

Thanks again!

What is the definition of Luxury?

Industry leaders gather in San Francisco to define luxury in the 21st century.

“Is the definition of luxury a matter of semantics? Americans imbue it with concepts of authenticity, freedom, customization and comfort, while Europeans focus to a larger extent on craftsmanship, materials, taste and scarcity. Words — or more to the point, positioning and spin — matter, especially when it comes to selling luxury in a world in which consumers are spending less, thanks to thrifty habits formed in the recession, and in which Millennials, the audience of the future…favor…acquiring experiences over acquiring more stuff. Those were the big takeaways from the Financial Times’ Business of Luxury conference May 23-24, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco”

“Luxury, is not what one pays, but “a state of mind” and “authentic self-expression.” – Levi’s –  President James Curleigh

Picture yourself on a Yacht, is it your authentic self-expression? it may be! We have seen so many guests transform aboard our Yachts for a few hours in blissful moments, without a care in the world and leaving with lasting memories provided by a private Yacht excursion on the San Francisco Bay.

Yacht Connections Crew San Francisco

“I booked California Spirit for a corporate event where we hosted some local employees as well as our international partners.

I called Stephanie early in the day prior to our charter to let her know we had a really bad experience with a walking tour the night before and that we were really looking forward to our event that evening to close our time together and hopefully erase the walking tour from our memories. Oh yea, I also told her we needed to add 10 to our group!

Stephanie was very reassuring everything would be great and it was! I received nothing but great feedback on the food, drinks, and staff. The weather couldn’t have been any better and the yacht was perfect. There is plenty of space and restrooms.

Our banquet was San Francisco Favorites, while it wasn’t a sit down dinner it was very filling, satisfying and tasty.

Also, YCI is very reasonable with their rates. I initially worked with Jeanavive and I let her know my budget and she was able to make it work.

Everyone I worked with at YCI really went above and beyond. Highly recommend.” – Maritza

“We’re so glad we picked California Spirit as the venue for our wedding!!  We got so many compliments from guests on how gorgeous the scenery was and how it was one of the most memorable weddings they have been to.

…the captain and the super dedicated crew were all amazing!!!   They really helped to make my wedding vision come true.  Thank you all!” – Dee D.

“It was a magical evening and I sincerely appreciate all of your efforts to create an amazing experience for everyone that attended. The food was fantastic, the staff attentive and the boat absolutely stunning.” Bordoux Jane Adams

“I threw my boyfriend a surprise birthday party on the California Spirit back in September 2012. Over 50 of our closest family members and friends were in attendance. I have nothing but great things to say about the experience. It was phenomenal! We cruised around the Bay, going around Alcatraz and under the GG Bridge.

The yacht was an absolutely amazing ship that is even more gorgeous and posh than the beautiful brochure photos. Although the affair was somewhat pricey, it was well worth the cost. It was nothing less than swanky and first class. We received VIP treatment, for sure.

The yacht staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The planning process was easy, stress-free and enjoyable.

If you’re looking to plan a 5-star event that both you and your guests will never forget, look no further.” – Carah

“My fiance and I had a 100 person party celebrating our engagement on the California Spirit and we adored our experience. What a fabulous night! Our out of town guests loved the tour of the Bay including the Alcatraz drive by and going right under the Golden Gate Bridge – there were cheers galore when we went under! Even the lifelong Bay Area residents were gushing about the trip – many said that even thought the grew up here they’d never been on a cruise.

The decor of the ship was gorgeous, the staff was thoughtful and helpful, and the varied rooms and seating of the ship made for excellent party flow. The whole experience was so classy and, somehow, cozy. We felt at home.  I recommend this heartily!” – Lauren G

“I booked a 30 person cruise on the California Spirit to celebrate my 40th birthday and the whole event was spectacular!  The YCI staff did an amazing job throughout the initial planning stages and setting my expectations for the event, what they would do, what to consider, etc.  The service and attentiveness of the yacht staff was top notch and really allowed my birthday event to flow extremely well, keeping everyone focused on the party and not on unnecessary matters.  The food was excellent and the bar staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Everything was just seamless and so well executed.  I highly recommend YCI and the California Spirit to anyone for a social event, wedding or birthday!” – Tim H.

“I joined the YCI for the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, for which they threw the classiest 1930’s party. I thought it would be the perfect occasion to have a mother daughter evening, so my mom and I as well as our favorite mother daughter friends all dressed up in vintage 1930’s dress and joined the yacht for an evening of cole porter, dancing, Manhattan’s, exquisite food and a fireworks show that won’t be forgotten.

The YCI was a beautiful boat! Excellent staff, who were just the kindest people looking to make your experience as authentic as possible. It didn’t feel too packed or stuffy. There was always a place to sit. Open bar. A live band upstairs, and a full spread of food including two different kinds of noodles made with whatever you wanted on the spot, bread bowls for clam chowder, sourdough rolls, and much more.

“I want to commend the staff for making my Mother’s surprise 75th birthday party a tremendous success. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event that she and all of our guests will forever treasure.

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.

The elegantly appointed California Spirit cruising effortlessly around the San Francisco Bay was a perfect venue.  The sunset framed by the Golden Gate as the backdrop made for a truly world-class experience.

Our guests ranged from seasoned travelers who flew in from all over for the weekend festivities to “locals” who have experienced much of what the Bay has to offer…the common and recurring feedback “Wow!”.  That you and your staff exceeded the expectations of this sophisticated group is a testament to the outstanding event you provided.”  – Jon Lewis

“We wanted to thank you for all of your tremendous help on our wedding. Thank you for making our visions come true on our special day. Everything turned out as beautiful as we had imagined.  We really appreciate all your hard work to ensure everything went smoothly. It was a pleasure and an asset having such a dedicated crew on our side on our special day.  Our special thanks to the Captain for reading our vows in the most beautiful and touching way.” – Jie & Dominque

“The Cruise was the BEST, the Chef was great, very accommodating, very talented and the service was perfect. – Terri O’Connor

“I can not thank you enough for all of your hard work that went into hosting our party on your 100′ California Spirit. For over 6-months I worked with the YCI Team to plan an extra-ordinary event for our friends…and that we did! our guests were amazed!

The Yacht was stunning and the crew made us feel like royalty. When YCI says it is their pleasure to have our business; they mean it! from the top on down…Unbelievable! your company left such an impression on me. It is so rare to find the impeccable customer service you and your staff offered to both me as the host, as well as our guests. Everything about your company is top-notch professional. – Christy

“What a FANTASTIC experience! My boyfriend and I found out about YCI through the concierge at the W Hotel.
Boarding this beautiful yacht, every last detail was attended to: from the warm welcome from the captain, and crew, to the coat check, to the impeccable service of passed hors d’ourves and dinner service, to the tasty drinks at the 2 premium bars….everything was so first class!  The yacht itself is beautifully appointed, and Marti was such a gracious host.  There was even some wonderful jazz entertainment upstairs!

The highlight of the night was when the yacht positioned itself close to the Golden Gate Bridge for the 75th anniversary Fireworks show!  It was the most impressive display of fireworks I have ever seen!  But to top of the ENTIRE night, my boyfriend PROPOSED to me during the fireworks show!  It was a moment I will never forget and I cannot say enough great things about the incredible experience we had upon the California Spirit!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ANY EVENT YOU ARE PLANNING!” – Emmeline

Yacht Connections: Boat Bathroom; why is it called the “head”?

“The bathroom of a maritime vessel is known as the head because of its location aboard vessels in the bow or fore of the ship, as explained by the Naval Heritage and History Command. The term first appears in 1708 in Woodes Rogers’ book, “A Cruising Voyage Around the World.” Source Ask.com

“Now, with various forms of engine power plus holding tanks and manual or powered pumps, the “head” can be anywhere. But the name stuck”. Source Toilet-Guru (who knew someone would think so much about toilets, there is a whole website dedicated to them!)

You may think it is funny or wonder why a Yacht company would be writing about Boat toilets aka Heads…well it is funny…and many people post their boat experiences on YouTube…like Spud Hilton’s experience of the Bad Latitude blog at SFGate.com.

Did you know there is foldaway toilets on some boats…and there is even instructional videos on using boat heads…

So next time you are taking a tour of a boat or considering a boat for your next event…don’t forget to think about the “head”…to avoid funny YouTube features…

Or else you can charter with Yacht Connections and never have to think about it again… The California Spirit Yacht has 5-luxury full-size bathrooms, with hand towels replenished through out your Yacht cruise and fresh white orchids and original Art work in each…(also, no instructions required for use!).

Yes! these are pictures of our Yacht bathrooms; full-size and as elegant as  a 4-star hotel…we have guests who literally take pictures of our bathrooms…

Yacht Connections: What is the difference between a boat and a yacht?

The differences between a yacht and a boat lie in the length, purpose and expense of the vessels, and these distinctions sometimes overlap. A boat is a watercraft that is used for pleasure, commercial or residential purposes, whereas a yacht is used exclusively for pleasure and carries the connotation of luxury. Source Ask.com

There is many ways to get out on the water…but what is best way for your special event, a boat or a Yacht? 

Boat Rental San Francisco

Are your guests o.k. with standing room only? or sitting outside on a bare deck of a boat in the weather? Is an ice-chest with some beers enough for your guests? If so, there are a lot of boats on the San Francisco Bay for charter… and what about the “bathrooms”? What if your guests prefer a luxury experience?…than Yacht Connections is the best choice for getting your group out on the San Francisco Bay for a luxury group dining event…

California Spirit is the Yacht of perfection for your guests

California Spirit Yacht

The 100′ California Spirit is an open and spacious Yacht featuring warm teak wood and black granite details, rich textiles and five luxurious bathrooms. The galley of the California Spirit provides ample space for our Executive chef to create and provide fresh cuisine. Your event can be staged throughout our beautiful salons and spacious exterior decks giving you and your guests plenty of space to move and mingle.

Signature Buffets with unique displays…

Yacht Dining Buffet

We always recommend our Signature Buffets so that guests can enjoy the views of San Francisco – with a seated meal it may limit your guest ability to move about and take photos.  Even at night they will have the opportunity to see Alcatraz a glow, going under the Golden Gate bridge and the SF Skyline lit-up.  We don’t skimp on quality for the buffet, and actually add décor and action stations at no extra charge.
