There are many reasons couples choose to have a yacht wedding in Marina del Rey.

Picture this: the gentle sway of turquoise waves, a radiant sun painting the sky in hues of gold, and you, surrounded by the ones you cherish most, exchanging vows atop a luxurious yacht.

As we embark on this voyage of discovery, we’ll unveil the top five compelling reasons why savvy couples are opting for the enchantment and allure of a yacht wedding in this coastal gem.

1. Location, Location, Location!


You’ve heard us say it before and we’ll continue to shout it from the top of our yachts’ sky decks. A wedding in Marina del Rey never goes out of style. With shimmering water as your backdrop, ocean views (including those sunset spectaculars), and that cool coastal breeze, there is no better place to embrace that famed California sunshine.

But that’s not all. The Marina is a hot wedding destination because of all it offers.

From global hotel chains and boutique properties to waterfront dining, there are plenty of accommodations to keep your wedding guests happy and stress-free. There are also activities like biking, stand-up paddleboarding, and nearby popular attractions like Venice Beach and Santa Monica for those looking to make the most of their stay.

The other advantage to hosting your wedding in Marina del Rey is its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Only four miles away, getting to and from the airport is a breeze – and avoids the dreaded freeway traffic you often hear about when visiting Los Angeles.


2. Experience Matters

Hosting your wedding with FantaSea Yachts means joining forces with a team of event virtuosos who have not only mastered the intricacies of the Marina’s waters but have also become intimately acquainted with the heartbeat of the community.

3. Yacht Weddings are Special

There is something truly special about making your wedding a one-of-a-kind experience for your guests. And a yacht rental for a wedding is just the ticket.  

Our yachts stand as the ultimate embodiment of that captivating “wow” factor, an invitation to embark on a voyage of unparalleled luxury and exclusivity.

Imagine this: as your guests step onto the yacht’s deck, they are greeted by our signature red carpet arrival, a grand gesture that instantly sets the tone for a day of magnificence.

The exclusivity of the yacht becomes a stage upon which your love story unfolds, making your guests feel like they’re worth a million bucks.

Unlike conventional venues, where spaces are shared and privacy can be compromised, our yachts offer an entire world of splendor dedicated solely to your celebration. 

The yacht becomes your haven. Dance beneath the stars, capture Instagram-worthy moments against the backdrop of the open sea, and cherish those intimate exchanges that only a private haven can provide. No interruptions from other events, no queues for restrooms, no unexpected wedding interlopers. 

It’s a sanctuary of focus ensuring that the spotlight remains firmly fixed on the cherished individuals who have gathered to honor your love story on this special day.

4. Entertainment and Leisure Options Close By


As friends and family fly in from around the country for this once-in-a-lifetime yacht wedding, the fun doesn’t have to end when the ceremony is over and the ship returns to shore.

Thanks to its strategic location along the coast, your guests can make a wonderful vacation out of the trip.

Hollywood, Disneyland, Universal Studios, the Getty Center and so many more famous Southern California attractions are just a short rental car or Uber ride away.

And if they’re staying in the Marina del Rey area for its proximity to the Fantasea Yachts fleets, there are a plethora of delicious restaurants and welcoming bars to make the wedding event into a weekend or multi-day affair.


5. A Customized Experience

Working with our expert wedding planners, you’ll be in control of every aspect of your incredible boat wedding. Literally, you have a say in everything except steering the yacht.
