Memorial Day – Let us Remember

Posted May 23, 2012 by Fantasea Yachts Team

Originally called “Declaration Day”, Memorial Day is a day dedicated to remembering those who have served our nation. A day for us to reflect and enjoy the freedom we have thanks to the men & women of our armed forces.

We take for granted that we get to experience our loved ones every day. We have the freedom to shower, eat the food we want to eat, enjoy fresh air (ok…for those in LA…maybe not the best air, but certainly not the worst). Yes, we have the frustrations of real life, but I can say with certainty we are not sleeping in a dirt ditch with a gun on our chest “just in case it’s needed” all to protect the lives of millions of people we don’t know; this is what our soldiers do every day during a tour.

Until recently, I’ve never personally known anyone who has served our country overseas. My friend Josh is currently over in Afghanistan serving a yearlong tour. When I found out he was going overseas I committed to sending him and his fellow soldiers one care-package a month.  Although it’s something so easy for me to do…it means the world to the soldiers.

In line with the care packages, our company, FantaSea Yachts is proud to offer military discounts to all of those who have served – or are currently serving. We are honored to be a part in the celebrations and of our armed forces. Not only do we offer a military discount for any of our venues – FantaSea One, RegentSea, Dandeana or our Yacht Club –we are also flexible with date changes due to deployment schedules.

FantaSea Salutes Supporting Our Servicemen and is proud to offer a 10% + Bonus for US Armed Services and Veteran Discount with Proof of Service. For more information about our Military Discounts, please see the link below.

To the men and women of our Armed Forces….we salute you, we celebrate you, we appreciate you….

The Act of Giving

Posted May 16, 2012 by Fantasea Yachts Team

As event planners we are constantly awed by the creativity and glamour of the party planning world. Each year brings new trends, new ideas and new looks to some very classic pieces associated with the special day for many. Sometimes, we are reminded of simple acts of kindness in ways that are both touching and charitable. As tradition calls in the Bar and Bat Mitzvah world, the celebrant has to complete an act of Charity, also known as Tzedakah within the Jewish Community. One such organization is SOVA run by JFS in Los Angeles. The SOVA Community and Resource Program provides free groceries and supportive services for over 12,000 men, women and children each month, with the goals of meeting immediate needs and helping people move from poverty to self-sufficiency.

Thank you Hannah, Hilary and Stephen for reminding us of this important lesson.

Baskets of Hope are beautiful custom decorated food basket centerpieces that complement your special event décor, impress your guests with their style and uniqueness and make a meaningful statement about your commitment to helping people living in poverty. They also some complete with a donation card in honor of the occasion for each centerpiece.


  • Holiday Table
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvah
  • Birthday Party
  • Luncheon
  • Business Event
  • Organization’s Gala

Your centerpieces will be a festive, colorful and meaningful substitute for flowers, and unlike flowers, your tax-deductible donationfor using Baskets of Hope will have a lasting impact helping the most vulnerable in our community.
