Plan your summer office party on our luxe yachts

Posted May 8, 2017 by Fantasea Yachts Team

This summer, up the ante with your office outings. Take happy hour to the next level with an incredible sunset cruise. Plan a mixer or networking reception where the ocean is just as part of the event as the attendees. Reward your team with the ultimate VIP experience that reinforces their value and the importance of their contributions–positively impacting company culture and morale. Besides, what’s summer in Los Angeles without an ocean view? ;)

If you nodded along to any of the scenarios above (and we hope you did), then look no further than FantaSea Yachts. With more than 35 years of experience, we consider ourselves the best luxury yacht charter company in Los Angeles. We’ve hosted incredible events aboard our yachts–from intimate business receptions to blown-out corporate bashes. And if that’s not enough, we have three gorgeous yachts that can be easily transformed into your own custom floor plan.

  • FantaSea One: Accommodating up to 300 guests, this ultra-modern mega-yacht has four levels, including an expansive sky deck, giving your guests sweeping 360 views.
  • RegentSea: Contemporary and stylish, this  tri-level yacht can accommodate 135 guests and features floor-to-ceiling windows, showing off amazing views.
  • Dandeana: The flagship of the FantaSea fleet, our Dandeana is a sleek, custom-built tri-level mega yacht that can accommodate up to 130 guests.

One advantage to hosting your event aboard one of our yachts is that the space is exclusively yours. Each event also comes with your own dedicated event planner and our signature VIP hospitality. Our event team will help execute your vision and coordinate logistics, details and vendors (think linens, floral arrangements, entertainment and more). Dreaming up a themed party? We can help with that, too. We’ve seen and done it all from beach-themed bashes and masquerade balls to winter wonderland holiday parties and tech-focused events.

Of course, a good party isn’t complete without food and that’s where our talented culinary team comes in. Our chef (trained at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel) has served FantaSea Yachts for more than 20 years and can easily dish out distinctive bites for a cocktail party or prepare a three-course meal for a more formal affair. Our menu is seasonal, but can also be customized to meet dietary needs.

Celebrate summer with FantaSea Yachts. Your guests will LOVE the added bonus of cruising the Marina del Rey harbor, taking in a spectacular ocean sunset, and enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the Los Angeles coastline. Summer is meant to be spent outdoors so why not enjoy it on one of our luxury yachts?

How to Throw the Ultimate Mardi Gras Party

Posted February 25, 2017 by Fantasea Yachts Team

Mardi Gras is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by throwing the ultimate bead-filled bash! Since we specialize in parties, we couldn’t resist sharing some of our favorite tips for planning your very own “Mardi Gras Mania.”

Make a Splash with Color: Color makes everything better, so why not add a pop or two with your decorations? There’s no question that purple reigns supreme with the Mardi Gras color scheme, but other shades like green, gold, and blue are also celebrated accents. Get creative with your decor and incorporate these festive hues where you can. From napkins and table linens to centerpieces and balloons, there are so many ways to ring in the Mardi Gras spirit.

Masks & Beads: It’s a 99.9% guarantee that party-goers associate NOLA’s famous beads and masks with Mardi Gras, making these an absolute MUST for your soiree. Display them on your table. Pass them out to your guests. Incorporate into your decor. However you choose, share them LOUD and PROUD as they are iconic showpieces of the festivities.

Food Overload: Mardi Gras is often referred to as “Fat Tuesday”…with good reason. This is the day to load up on all of your favorite treats. Cupcakes? Go for it. Chips & dip? Coming right up. Pizza? Yes, please. If there ever was a day to eat without guilt, this is the day to do it!

Cocktail Swilling: Enjoy your feast to the max with two cocktails that are synonymous with the spirit of the Big Easy…Hurricanes and Sazerac. Two very different drinks, each a very quintessential NOLA experience.

Jazz it up with Music: To put it simply, a party isn’t party without M-U-S-I-C. Fill your celebration with sounds of the South. Crank up some funky jazz. Blast some classic NOLA tunes. Or share your favorite party playlist. Just make sure the volume is turned up!

With these party planning tips, your Mardi Gras will be rockin’. Do you have a favorite way to celebrate? Sound off in comments below!

2016 Holiday Trends

Posted November 15, 2016 by Fantasea Yachts Team

Holiday parties are here!

Holiday parties are here!

It’s no secret that fall is upon us…a most glorious season that means different things to different people. September signals the start of football mania…helllooooo Sunday games and fantasy teams. October tends to welcome the highly-anticipated pumpkin spiced everything. November practically begs you to break out that perfect pair of boots you’ve waited so patiently to wear. For us at FantaSea Yachts, fall typically means one thing…holiday party planning!

For us, this IS the most wonderful time of the year. We like to think of ourselves as little party elves working away to deliver the MOST amazing experience for our clients. And it varies with each event…from our clients who return year after year to Silicon Beach start-ups and corporate LA biz. Each party brings a different style and we LOVE executing each vision. Another thing we love? Taking note of popular trends that emerge during the party planning process.

With that, our general manager, Jasmine Lee, is sharing the top three “must dos” our team has noticed with this year’s holiday parties.

Our GM, Jasmine, shares top holiday trends!

Speciality themed cocktails: This is such a fun, personalized detail that I don’t think will ever go out of style. It’s a given that the bar will be the party hot spot, so why not personalize the  experience by creating a signature cocktail or two?  Name one after the company CEO. Find a way to incorporate your company slogan or other aspects of your office culture. It will be the buzz  (pun intended) of your soiree. 

Lighting: This year, we’re seeing a lot of our clients have fun with their lighting. As they should!  Lighting is a fantastic way to dazzle your guests. Some trends we’ve seen making a big statement  are different variations of uplighting. But it doesn’t always have to be so grand. Smaller touches, like adding fairy lights to your centerpieces, can really make your event glow, creating a  somewhat  magical ambience that  your guests will love.

Unique venues: It’s no secret that people choose FantaSea Yachts because they are looking for something different. A unique venue that will impress their guests…that WOW factor. But it’s more  than just  choosing FantaSea…it’s FUN to try something new. With a unique event space, your team will feel like they were honored with an exclusive experience…that inside scoop…making them feel  like a true VIP. 

So there you have it! Our top picks for 2016 holiday trends…thanks, Jasmine! Have you noticed any patterns or anything interesting as you’ve started your event planning? Share with us below!
