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?

Plan a stunning Quinceanera with FantaSea Yachts

Posted April 13, 2017 by Fantasea Yachts Team

Planning a Quinceanera? As our general manager Jasmine Lee reflects on her career at FantaSea Yachts, she shares the significance of the cultural celebration.

As I approach almost 20 years at FantaSea Yachts, I can’t help but think about the special events I’ve helped planned.  There are so many reasons why I love my job, but the best part is seeing all the different cultural traditions of celebrations.   One of my favorites is the Quinceanera. We all know the transition to womanhood is such a precious and emotional journey.  Celebrating that journey with a Quinceanera ceremony and reception is such a fabulous way to mark the moment with loved ones.

Intimate or opulent, such an event should be celebrated in a way that captures the wonder and excitement of this major milestone. I often tell my clients that vision is key—that this is a time to be so uniquely you. Whether your style falls into the land of an enchanted forest or the pages of a storybook romance, or you choose to celebrate with a vibrant fiesta or pay homage to your favorite time era with a 50s throwback or renaissance theme, remember that your quinceanera is your fairytale and that you are the princess.

Celebrating your quinceanera on one our luxury yachts takes it to the next level. With over 35 years of event planning experience, we mean it when we say parties are our specialty. Add the company of our your loved ones, a dance floor, VIP hospitality AND a cruise in the Marina del Rey harbor? You simply can’t go wrong. Best of all…we help with all the planning and details.


In thinking about quinceaneras celebrated aboard our yachts, one of my most memorable moments was a father-daughter dance on the skydeck of FantaSea One…surrounded by gorgeous blue skies and the onset of a beautiful sunset with Santa Monica bay as the backdrop…it was impossible to forget.  I loved the lavish princess gowns, the choreographed waltz with the court, the special toasts and speeches to family and close friends. I love that these traditions are continued generation after generation, and I think it’s so important to celebrate young girls and make them feel cherished as they are queens for the day.

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!
