Key Factors To Consider

Before we embark on our recommendations about what to wear to a boat or yacht party, let’s discuss some practical key points you have to be aware of.

First and foremost, keep in mind the weather and location. If you’re heading out on a sunny day, opt for lightweight and breathable fabrics that will keep you cool and comfortable. Additionally, consider the possibility of wind – it’s wise to choose outfits that won’t easily get tangled in the breeze, and to take additional layers, like a light jacket, if you think you might get cold.

2. Your Itinerary

Next, take into account the specific activities you’ll be engaging in during the party. If there’s swimming involved, bring or wear appropriate swimwear underneath your outfit.

3. Time Of Day

If you are setting out in the heat of the day, it’s important to opt for breathable materials that will keep you cool in the summer sun. However, if you are setting out in the evening, you have more options.

What Should You Wear To a Boat or Yacht Party?

1. linen, cotton and tencel dresses.

We highly recommend wearing lightweight clothes made from natural fibers like linen, tencel and cotton for your boat or yacht day trip. All of them are highly breathable, allowing air circulation and preventing you from feeling overheated in the sun or during energetic activities onboard.

In addition to this, they have great moisture-wicking properties, which means that any sweat or water on your clothes quickly evaporates, keeping you cool and dry.

While you can opt for any colors you want, light colors are especially popular in the heat of the sun, as well as nautical colors like light blue and navy, which echo the color scheme of open waters around you.

2. Comfortable Flat Shoes

As for footwear, opt for comfortable pair of slides, espadrilles, platform sandals or boat shoes. Flat shoes provide better balance and a more secure grip on the boat’s surface, reducing the risk of slips, especially if you’re setting out in windy conditions.

Moreover, they’re comfortable to wear for extended periods, making them ideal to wear on long boat parties with limited seating.

3. Wide Leg Pants

  Wide-leg pants are our favorite bottoms to wear during the summer, and boat parties are no different.

These elegant pants can be dressed up with elegant tops and a designer party bag for a chic look, or more casually with your favorite bikini top, a crop top or a linen tank top. For ultimate comfort, stick to light colors and breathable materials like tencel, linen and rayon.

4. Tailored Shorts

Shorts have a habit of seeming a bit casual but they are perfect for boat-party evenings.

A boating atmosphere means there can be quite a lot of wind, and no one wants an embarrassing dress-caught-in-the-wind moment.

A pair of tailored shorts with a structured waistband can be paired with a blouse for a formal summer party or a fun embellished top for a sun-down soiree.

5. Figure-Hugging Long Dresses

View this post on Instagram A post shared by NEELAM KAUR GILL (@neelamkg)

For ultimate elegance, go for a figure-embracing maxi dress. Not only are they more practical than sorter dresses that may get down by the wind, but they’re also more glamorous as you glide along the deck.

While a voluminous flowy dress will look amazing blowing in the wind, it can get annoying very quickly. For daytime affairs, opt for a casual rib-knit dress, and for fancier yacht parties or black tie events, a long cocktail dress with more striking designs.

6. Button-Down Shirt

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Conna Walker (@connawalker)

A classic button-down shirt is an unlikely option for a boat-party look but is the most versatile item of clothing you’ll have in your suitcase this summer.

Choose classic white or a pop of color and use your shirt as it was intended, as a swim cover-up, or to cover your shoulders in the breezy boat evenings.

Rompers are very chic and laid-back, making them one of the most perfect outfits to wear to a boat or yacht party. Plus, unlike with skirts and dresses, you don’t have to worry about the wind blowing up your hem.

Again, opt for breathable fabrics if you’re cruising in the sun, and for extra protection, consider rompers with long sleeves.

For days when you don’t know what to wear, a matching set will be your best friend.

Two-piece sets in natural materials like cotton and linen mean that even during the height of summer, you’ll be [and look] cool as ice.

9. Crochet Dresses

Crochet dresses have been a trending summer staple for the past few years, and they make for the perfect boat party outfit. Wear your bikini underneath, and opt for light and bright colors to keep you cool in the sun.

10. Breezy Jumpsuits

White linen jumpsuit

Like rompers, jumpsuits are a good choice to wear on a boat or a yacht, as they won’t get caught in the wind. Opt for loose and flowy designs that allow the wind to blow through your jumpsuit, cooling you down in the sweltering sun.

Pair them with sandals and a wide-brim hat for a casual sailing outfit, or dress them up with statement jewelry and wedges for a dinner party or evening soiree.

Other Essentials To Bring To A Boat Party

1. your swimsuit.

Firstly, it’s not a boat party without swimming! Don’t forget to bring your favorite bathing suit with you.

2. Suncream

It also pays to protect your skin from the sun, so pack your sunblock in your bag. A good sunblock should be at least SPF 30, since SPF 30 can block about 97% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Make sure to reapply your suncream every 2 hours you spend in the sun for optimal protection.

3. Protective Accessories

It goes without saying, but don’t attend a boat party without a good pair of sunglasses . The sun is especially strong in the open sea as it reflects off of water, and you don’t want to spend your day squinting.

In addition to sunglasses, also consider bringing a stylish hat that protects your face and scalp. Whether you opt for a wide-brimmed hat, a floppy sun hat, a straw hat or a sporty cap, it serves as a barrier against the sun, reducing the risk of sunburn and discomfort.

4. Beach Towel

Some yachts and bigger boats will be equipped with beach towels for guests , but this is not a given. If you think you’ll be going in for a dip, pack a beach towel in your beach tote before you set off.

Now that we’ve gone over some of the best things to wear for yacht and boat parties, let’s also take a look at clothing to avoid.

What Not To Wear To A Boat Party

How you dress for a boat party is very different to what you wear on land. What looks good in a rooftop bar might not be appropriate for a yacht, so keep these things in mind when putting together your outfit:

1. High heels 

Stilettos with a sharp heel are a bit of a hazard on a moving boat; not only are you less stable when wearing them, the heel itself can also get stuck in gaps or grates on the deck, which can damage your shoes.

To be on the safe side, opt for comfortable flat sandals, boat shoes, or espadrilles, or take your shoes off entirely!

If you’re attending a dressy occasion in the evening, consider wearing platform wedges that look polished but are easy to walk in.

2. Fabrics That Make You Sweat

Avoid fibers and materials like acrylic, polyester, denim, and spandex that will make you sweat, and silk, which has moisture-wicking properties, but will not hide sweat stains.

Instead, opt for breathable fibers like cotton, linen, rayon, viscose, jersey, chambray and tencel, especially if you’re attending a boat party during the daytime.

3. Skin Tight clothing (If you’re swimming)

If you know that you’ll be swimming, avoid wearing tight clothing, as there’s nothing more uncomfortable than having to put your tight clothes back on when you have wet skin. Also, what looks good dry might not look as great when it’s all soaked in water and sticking to your skin.

Opt for clothes that are loose enough that they won’t cling to you and that allow the wind’s breeze to flow through them. Alternatively, you can always bring a change of clothes if you have a tight outfit that you definitely want to wear on your boat ride.

We hope you found a few boat and yacht party outfit ideas that are perfect for your next boat trip, whether that’s on a luxury yacht or a more casual boat cruise. For more articles like this, make sure to check out the posts below.

What To Wear To A Yacht Party At Night (Fashion Tips)

Posted on June 17, 2022

You’re going to a nighttime yacht party! Wait – what should you wear? Your host hasn’t given you dress code pointers or a theme, and while you throw together decent outfits for parties on land, you’re clueless about what to wear at sea. There’s water, so will it have a pool-party vibe? Or will it be a glitzy shindig needing a full-on fancy outfit? What should you wear to a yacht party at night? 

Dress in cocktail wear for a nighttime yacht party if no other dress code has been specified. Women can choose from cocktail dresses, pantsuits, jumpsuits, matching sets, or blouses tucked into dress pants. Suitable outfits for men include suits, dress pants, and blazers, or chinos and jackets. 

Cocktail wear is just right for most nighttime yacht parties because it’s smart enough to make a good impression without being too formal for a yacht’s easy-breezy atmosphere. Some yacht events are, of course, black-tie affairs requiring tuxedos and evening gowns. But your host would have mentioned this on your invite. For outfit ideas for less-lavish yacht parties, we’ve got you covered.

Night Yacht Party Dressing Tips For Women And Men

When picking your yacht-party-ready outfit, consider three things: style, comfort, and safety.

Night Yacht Party Dressing: Style

For pitch-perfect night yacht party dressing, you’re aiming for a look somewhere between boardshorts and bikini and evening gown and tuxedo. 

You’ll get this dress code right by sporting something you’d wear to a fancy dinner or cocktail party on land. Your goal is to look well put together without trying too hard (and be comfy enough to bust a move on the dancefloor!). 

night yacht party style

Nautical style influences are popular in yacht wear, so consider bringing some navy, crisp white, brass buttons, or pops of red into your outfit. 

Focus on fabric and avoid synthetics in favor of breathable naturals like cotton, linen, and silk. 

You also want to avoid extremes in your footwear – no slip-slops or stilettos. And don’t choose your shoes to be the standout piece of your outfit, as you might be asked to take them off. Some shoes can wreck yachts’ decks, so make sure your outfit works with or without your shoes. 

Night Yacht Party Dressing: Comfort 

night yacht party dressing comfort

Yacht living is synonymous with luxury and leisure. Choose understatedly glamorous and comfy clothing to reflect this spirit. 

But don’t take comfort too far. Go for clothes that feel amazing on your body but nothing too loose. Voluminous pieces will blow in the sea breeze , whipping against you and your fellow guests. And you’ll be anything but comfortable if you constantly need to restrain extra layers of fabric. 

Another tip to keep you comfortable on board is to take something warm with you to wear if you feel chilly. It might be balmy when you set out, but it gets cool on the water.

Night Yacht Party Dressing: Safety

Yacht parties come with more risks than your standard garden party. The big one: tripping and falling overboard. So, you need to think about safety, including when selecting your outfit.

Long skirts and dresses are a tripping hazard. Rather stick to shorter hemlines. 

Slip-slops and stilettos are not only fashion faux pas but also safety threats. You want to be sure of your footing, so wear flat shoes with a better grip than slops. 

Plus, leave your long necklaces, chandelier earrings, and luxury watches at home. Dangly jewelry can blow in the wind, get stuck in something, and tug at your earlobes or make you trip, and sea spray can ruin your precious watch. 

Night Yacht Party Outfit Inspiration For Women

These outfit options are sure to score you a place on the best-dressed list:

  • A cocktail dress. Try one in a rich jewel color to complement the deep blue of the night sky and ocean, or outshine the twinkling stars in a sequined number. Your trusty LBD will work well, too. 
  • A jumpsuit. This is the ultimate piece for style and comfort. Choose an elegant design with details such as romantic sleeve ruffles, a low back, or a cowl neck. Or go for a timeless silk jumpsuit in a neutral color. 
  • A pantsuit. Tailored suits aren’t only for the boys. Choose a sleek, cinched-waist two-piece with a silk camisole underneath.   
  • A matching set. Be on-trend in a high-waisted skirt, shorts, or pants and a matching crop top. Add a blazer for a smarter outfit. 
  • A blouse and dressy pants. Tuck a pretty, floaty blouse into smart trousers for a more casual yet still polished look. Add a nice leather belt for extra style points. 

Ballet flats are the top shoe pick for a yacht party. You could also slip your feet into a pair of evening sandals, wedges, or kitten heels. 

If you want to make your outfit showier, carry a beaded, sparkly, feathered, or satin clutch. 

Night Yacht Party Outfit Inspiration For Men

Put together a winning look with one of these outfits:

  • A suit. Pair your choice of the suit (whether double-breasted, three-piece, or just a basic matching top and bottom) with a button-down and tie. Wear a rollneck jumper or perfect-fit T-shirt under your jacket for a more laid-back vibe. 
  • Dress pants and blazer. Choose pieces in a similar shade for a polished look. Slim-fit or cropped trousers are yacht-style staples. 
  • Chinos and jacket. For a relaxed option, wear your favorite chinos with a jacket. Or skip the jacket and wear a bold-print button-down with sleeves rolled up. Pick a dark color like navy, black, or charcoal for your chinos or add a tie to smarten up your outfit. 

Brogues and derbies are both shoe styles for a smart-casual dress code . Wear loafers or leather trainers if you want something more casual and comfy. 

Feel your outfit’s missing something? Experiment with a pocket square, statement belt, bowtie, or neckerchief. 

Rock up at a yacht party looking either too casual or formal, and you might feel like jumping overboard in embarrassment (or you could tempt an image-conscious host to push you over!). Instead, help set the scene for a night to remember by dressing in cocktail wear. You’ll look stylish and feel at ease. 

Also, think about safety when deciding what to wear. Avoid anything super long or baggy, dangly jewelry, and slippery or sky-high shoes. Then again, don’t put too much thought into your shoes – you might be asked to take them off!

33+ Yacht Party Attire Ideas: Setting Sail in Style

Julie Higgins

When it comes to yacht party attire, striking the perfect balance between nautical elegance and casual sophistication is the key to making waves at any maritime soirée.

Imagine cruising on sparkling waters, the sun painting the sky in hues of orange and pink as you sip champagne and nibble on gourmet treats.

This is the essence of a yacht party—a luxurious haven where socialites and fashionistas alike come to unwind and celebrate.

While the captivating beauty of the sea and the allure of social mingling over Insta-worthy treats serve as irresistible opportunities to relax and snap some great social media content, your yacht party attire plays a pivotal role in how you experience it.

Choosing the right yacht party attire is not just a fashion statement; it’s a social grace.

Your outfit is your personal brand’s uniform, helping to form those all-important first impressions and showing who you are and what you represent before you even utter a word.

After all, celebrity fashion stylist Rachel Zoe once said: “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak!”

Whether you’re aiming for casual sophistication or an evening of glamour, your wardrobe choices can set the tone for the party and ensure that you’re comfortable, confident, and appropriately dressed for the occasion.

Understanding Yacht Party Attire

Yacht parties come in many shapes and styles, from daytime soirees to sunset cocktail events and even formal black-tie affairs.

Understanding the tone of the party you’re attending is essential in getting the dress code right and choosing the appropriate clothing for the occasion.

Types of Yacht Parties

  • Daytime Parties: Often casual and sporty, these are the events where you can revel in your love for pastels, shorts, and deck shoes – the stereotypical nautical style. A daytime yacht party typically has a relaxed and airy vibe, ideal for linen dresses, polo shirts, and flip-flops.
  • Sunset Parties: As the day turns to evening, the attire takes a more glamorous turn. Think cocktail dresses, tailored jackets, and smart-casual outfits that allow you to transition from day to night seamlessly.
  • Formal Events: These are the crème de la crème of yacht parties, where the dress code could range from cocktail attire to full black-tie. Men are expected to show up in tuxedos or at least a well-tailored suit, and women often wear elegant evening gowns or chic cocktail dresses.

Ambiance and Setting

The ambiance is directly influenced by the type of yacht party.

Daytime events are generally cheerful and relaxed, often with summer tunes playing in the background.

It’s almost like a scene from those cool summer music videos that you typically lust over on TV when you’re stuck at home wearing chunky knits in the middle of winter!

You might find people lounging in swimwear, cover-ups, or casual summer dresses. The evening parties, however, usually come with a hint of formality.

Dim lighting, jazz or classical music, and a more sophisticated crowd require an equally sophisticated wardrobe.

Understanding the ambiance and setting not only helps you choose your outfit but also prepares you for the social dynamics of the party.

Always remember, the right yacht party attire can help you navigate through any social sea with grace and confidence.

Daytime Yacht Party Attire 

When the sun is shining and the yacht sets sail for a daytime soiree, think airy, relaxed, and comfortable, but never compromise on style.

The key to nailing daytime yacht party attire lies in lightweight fabrics like cotton, linen, and chambray.

These fabrics not only help to keep you cool but also make you appear effortlessly chic and elegant without looking too over the top.

Women can opt for breathable summer dresses or a stylish combination of tailored shorts with a sleeveless blouse.

Men might consider wearing cotton or linen shorts paired with a crisp polo shirt or even a short-sleeve button-down shirt.

Don’t shy away from nautical prints—think stripes, anchors, or even seashells—to give your outfit that quintessential maritime touch.

Comfortable shoes are a must; you’ll likely be walking around, socializing, or perhaps even dancing. Boat shoes, espadrilles, or sophisticated flip-flops are great choices that blend comfort with style.

Sunset and Evening Yacht Party Attire 

As the day transitions into evening, yacht parties often adopt a more sophisticated and formal tone.

The relaxed shorts and flip-flops that served you well during the day are replaced by chic sundresses, elegant jumpsuits, and smart separates like tailored pants and silk blouses.

Fabrics like silk, satin, or lightweight wool are the perfect way to cover-up in the evening when enjoying watching golden hour turn to sunsets over the sea.

These kinds of fabrics also offer a luxurious touch and are ideal for travel too.

For men, a well-fitted blazer can transform a casual daytime look into a smart evening ensemble when paired with dark jeans or tailored pants.

It’s always a good idea to bring along a stylish layer piece for evening parties, as temperatures can drop quite significantly after sunset.

Women can opt for a lightweight pashmina shawl or a fashionable jacket, while men might consider a lightweight sweater or casual sports jacket.

The key is to choose garments that are easily removable yet blend seamlessly with your outfit, keeping you comfortable without sacrificing style.

Try to avoid tight-fitting sweaters that can mess up your hairdo or makeup or are generally just uncomfortable and tricky to pull on and off over your head. 

Screenshot 2023 09 22 113114

Nautical Elements and Color Palette

In the world of yacht parties, the nautical fashion trend is a timeless classic.

You know the one!

Clean, bold navy stripes across a crisp white canvas.

These patterns are usually worn on t-shirts, dresses or shirts and teamed with white shorts or trousers and light canvas shoes.

The palette is usually dominated by navy, white, and accents of red or gold.

These colors not only evoke the maritime spirit but also offer a touch of elegance and simplicity.

Incorporating these shades into your outfit, whether through a navy-blue blazer or a white linen dress, can make a subtle yet striking impact.

Maritime-inspired accessories can serve as the finishing touch. Think anchor-shaped pendants, sailor knots, or even rope belts.

Get creative with nautical-inspired accessories and have fun! What better place to lose yourself in this trend than when dressing for a yacht party at sea!

These little details can provide that extra layer of authenticity and sophistication to your yacht party looks, making you appear not just fashionable but also in tune with the sea-loving setting.

Footwear Choices for Yacht Parties

Your choice of footwear can greatly influence your overall experience at a yacht party.

While you might be tempted to sport those killer heels or brand-new leather loafers, comfort should be your primary concern.

Espadrilles offer a chic yet comfortable solution, providing a cushiony base and ample style.

Boat shoes are another excellent choice, especially for men, as they offer good grip and a timeless look.

Sandals, preferably with a back strap, can also work well, offering both comfort and ease of movement.

While high heels might look glamorous, they can be a recipe for disaster on a boat.

Not only are they uncomfortable when worn for long periods of time, but they also pose a safety risk too, particularly during bouts of turbulence from rough tides or when you’re moving around on a deck that can become slippery from overlapping waves.

When it comes to yacht parties, style should never come at the cost of safety or comfort.

This is your ideal opportunity to dress up and look glamorous minus the heels so why not make the most of it!

Accessorizing for Yacht Glamour 

The right accessories can significantly elevate your daytime yacht attire.  When it comes to elevating your yacht party outfit , accessories play a crucial role.

The right choice of accessories can add that final touch of glamour, converting a good outfit into an extraordinary one. 

Sunglasses are a must, not just as a style statement but also for eye protection. Choose a pair that complements the shape of your face and the vibe of your outfit.

You typically can’t go wrong with classic styles in black, tortoiseshell or metal-rimmed aviators.

For daytime events, statement sunglasses are not just practical for shielding your eyes from the sun; they’re also a cornerstone of yacht chic.

Whether it’s a classic aviator, a retro cat-eye, or an oversized pair, the style you choose can speak volumes.

Hats are another accessory that serves dual purposes: function and fashion.

A wide-brimmed hat can protect you from direct sun exposure while adding a hint of sophistication to your look.

Wide-brim sun hats or casual baseball caps can add flair while offering the practical benefit of shielding you from the sun. 

Similarly, a well-chosen piece of elegant jewelry—perhaps a pearl necklace or a set of gold bangles—can light up your outfit in the evening.

Don’t overlook functional accessories like a chic sunhat for daytime or a stylish clutch for the evening.

These items can hold your essentials while complementing your ensemble.

A light scarf or bandana is another versatile accessory, offering a pop of color and serving as a functional piece to keep your hairstyle and patience intact against the occasional gust of wind.

Remember, accessories are your chance to inject personality into your outfit.

Choose pieces that resonate with your style but also match the event’s theme.

The right balance between practicality and flair can set you apart in the most sophisticated manner.

Navigating Formal Yacht Party Attire

Formal yacht parties take the concept of nautical elegance to the next level.

Dress codes can range from cocktail attire to black-tie, which means a step up from your regular party wardrobe.

Ladies can opt for elegant cocktail dresses that exude sophistication.

Fabrics like silk, chiffon, or lace add a luxurious touch that fits the high-end setting.

If the event is black-tie, an evening gown is more appropriate, preferably in understated colors like black, navy, or metallic shades. 

When choosing an evening dress, try to remember that “less is more” and we don’t mean the amount of material!

Be mindful of not picking a style that’s overly revealing and showing off too much cleavage.

Not only is flashing the skin not deemed appropriate in this type of formal setting, you also run the risk of experiencing a potentially embarrassing wardrobe malfunction when onboard. 

For men, a tailored suit can often suffice for a cocktail dress code.

However, for black-tie events, a tuxedo becomes almost imperative. Look for high-quality materials and a fit that complements your body shape.

Remember, a well-tailored suit or tuxedo not only looks good but also boosts your confidence, enhancing your overall experience at the party.

Packing Essentials and Preparation

Preparing for a yacht party involves more than just choosing an outfit. The trick lies in packing smartly to cover all scenarios.

Your checklist should include not just your main outfit but also layering options, swimwear, and a change of clothes if the party extends into the late hours.

Don’t forget essential accessories like sunglasses, hats, and perhaps even a light scarf or shawl for cooler temperatures.

Always consider the weather forecast and the possibility of water activities when packing.

Ziplock bags can be handy for protecting your phone and other essentials from water damage.

Pack your outfits in garment bags to keep them in good condition and use shoe bags for your footwear to maintain their shape and cleanliness.

Choosing the perfect yacht party attire can feel overwhelming, but it’s all about balancing style with comfort and appropriateness for the occasion.

Whether it’s a casual daytime event or a swanky evening soiree, your outfit sets the tone for your experience.

Never underestimate the power of well-chosen accessories or the importance of appropriate grooming and skincare.

Embrace your personal style but be respectful of the event’s vibe and dress code.

After all, yacht parties are an embodiment of fashion, luxury, and the majestic backdrop of the sea.

If you’re lucky enough to get an invitation to a cool summer yacht party then make sure you revert back to these tips to help you choose the right clothing and accessories for a thoroughly successful and enjoyable boat party experience.

Plus, with these styling tips, you’re guaranteed to feel confident and comfortable to pose for those all-important photos for the ‘Gram!

What to Wear to a Yacht Party at Night

Yacht parties as a great way to spend time with friends and family while enjoying the beautiful scenery. There are however a few things to keep in mind when picking out the perfect outfit for a yacht party.

The first thing to consider is the type of event. Is it a day event or an evening event? This will determine what kind of clothing is appropriate. For a daytime event, something like a polo shirt and linen pants would be a great choice. If the event is in the evening, then you might want to consider something a little more formal like slacks and a button-down shirt.

Another thing to keep in mind is the dress code. Many yacht clubs have strict dress codes that must be followed. If you’re not sure what the dress code is, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and go with something more formal. A little black dress is always a great choice for an evening event.

Lastly, don’t forget the little things. Things like lip balm and extra sweaters can make all the difference when you’re out on the water. Keep reading for more quick tips on what to wear to a yacht party at night!

1. Polo Shirts

They will look good at a special occasion or a business casual get-together! You can also wear a matching jacket to dress it up for a formal dress code.

2. Dress Slacks

A linen shirt is a good choice of top for a boat ride. During the day, you can wear the linen shirt as a layer over a bathing suit to protect your skin from the sun, and when it cools off in the evening you can have it to keep warm.

A light jacket is another great option for a yacht event at night. You can top off just about any outfit with a dinner jacket or lightweight blazer.

You can also easily accessorize a jacket with some nice jewelry and a sensible handbag.

Yacht Party: By Day or Night?

Having a yacht party is a great way to make your bash stand out from the rest. From the breathtaking views and first-class service to the simple fact that you’re aboard a yacht, there are many unique characteristics.

One of the stark differences from a typical event venue is that, once aboard, you’ll enjoy a beautiful cruise on the water–an exciting feature for our clients and their guests. Depending on the time of day, your celebration can bask in the famous Southern California sunshine or sparkle under the night stars. Yacht parties offer a lot of flexibility making them an ideal choice for almost any occasion.

This leads to a question we often hear from our clients: Should we hold our event during the day or at night?

While both have their advantages, there are a few questions to consider first.

How formal is it?

Evaluate the scope of your event. Do you envision cocktail dresses and sharp suits? Formal gowns and classic tuxedos? Then your event is best suited for the evening.

If you’re opting for a more casual feel with a bright, airy vibe then daytime is probably best.

A general rule of thumb is that formal events (e.g. weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, proms, corporate galas , etc.) are planned in the evening while lighter celebrations (e.g. family reunions, baby and bridal showers, engagement and graduation parties, etc.) occur during the day.

Who’s invited?

Scan your guest list and get a sense of the invitees.

Are they early birds? Night owls? Are their weekends filled with work shifts and kid’s soccer games? If you answered “yes,” then a night yacht party will most likely be preferred.

If the group is a little more flexible (i.e. not tied to a specific schedule) then a midday jaunt will probably work just fine.

What’s on the menu?

Decide what you plan to serve your guests. If you’re feeling a three-course sit down dinner complete with bread service and passed hors d’oeuvres, the evening is more appropriate.

Daytime events are a little more comfortable and often call for a more casual setting featuring a fantastic buffet or a gorgeous brunch spread. Either way, food is a MUST for any event and should be served accordingly.

Sunset, stars or sunny skies?

Many clients consider the gorgeous backdrop of the Marina del Rey harbor as an enhanced feature of their event. In this case, clients look forward to a spectacular sunset for amazing photos while others rely on the twinkling lights of the harbor and stars to add a romantic feel.

Our daytime clients really emphasize the sights on the water and enjoy the incomparable views of the Los Angeles coastline–from Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes peninsula all the way to Malibu. Daytime events are also fun for spotting wildlife and seeing other yachts in the harbor.

A nighttime yacht party will have  a different vibe. Depending on the nature of your celebration, dancing and socializing might be more like dancing at a nightclub. Alternatively, for smaller celebrations, the night sky is the perfect backdrop for a luxurious  and intimate experience.

Your choices depend on what your goal is. What do you want to experience with your guests?

Still Not Sure? 

Consider how you want your event to look. For example, enchancements like lighting will produce different looks depending on the time of day. Did you want to do special uplighting? A gobo on the dance floor or on the side of the yacht? If yes, then maybe an evening event is best.

If you have specific colors or a theme you want to feature, then consider whether or not a daylight or an evening yacht party will complement your color palette. Did you want to use glow sticks on the dance floor or have sparklers for your grand exit once the yacht docks? Or did you want to keep it simple with natural lighting? These are all questions that will help determine when to hold your event.

Remember, you can customize every aspect of your yacht party to create the exact experience you’re looking for. Our expert planners are here to make the process effortless.

We hope this information helped guide you in the right direction with your event planning. For additional details, please call 310-827-2220 or click  here  to submit an event query form.

Whether you want to throw a large cocktail party, a discreet dinner, or both, Burgess will be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Our charter experts know how to elevate any occasion to the unforgettable

From the booking of your yacht, berth, private jet, and limousine, to a variety of different entertainment options, there is a superyacht and a destination to suit every taste.

Selecting the right destination

Want to party with the stars at the Cannes Film Festival? Just ask

Prefer a private desert island-type setting to celebrate with your friends and family? The  Caribbean and  The Bahamas have plenty of secluded bays in which to anchor and spend quality time with your favourite people. Here is a selection of the finest destinations to host your super, superyacht party.

You can always find a beach to call your own

Spring signals the start of the yachting season on the Côte d’Azur, with the Cannes Film Festival opening the show. From May, the Riviera lights up as A-list celebrities descend to see and be seen at arguably the most glamorous film festival in the world. The best parties are, of course, on board the most exclusive superyachts, berthed in the marina right next to the red carpet at the Palais des Festivals.

Magicians or musicians, club singers or cocktail slingers, we can add sparkle to any occasion

Further along the coast, Monaco glitters with seven centuries of regal heritage. The iconic Port d’Hercule is within champagne-popping range of the gilded principality’s world-renowned gourmet restaurants, A-list clubs, and designer boutiques. Sport is also a favourite pastime in Monaco, and the principality hosts several popular events including the Formula 1 Grand Prix in May.

As evening comes, the parties begin

Chartering a superyacht trackside at this event provides not only the best vantage point for you and your guests to watch the action, but also puts you right in the thick of the action where you can literally smell the gasoline and burning tyre rubber from these amazing cars. Burgess has the right contacts to also get you into the pit lane, rubbing shoulders with the drivers before the race, and partying afterwards at the Amber Lounge.

Despite its reputation as the  Balearics ' party-island, Ibiza has more recently evolved to be among the Mediterranean’s most glamorous charter cruising grounds. The vibe throughout the summer season is all about lazy lunches, diving off deck in secret coves, and losing yourself in the rural countryside inland. The White Isle as Ibiza is known, also offers the waterborne visitor an almost unrivalled selection of beach clubs.

There is no cooler way to arrive at Ibiza's fabled beach clubs

Arrive in style by tender and join the glitterati enjoying the sunshine and sunset accompanied by chilled music before heading back on board to celebrate in style. Alternatively, as the sun sets and the vibe picks up a beat or two, head to Ibiza Town’s effortlessly cool hangouts where you can dance until dawn to the world's best DJs.

St Barth is without a doubt the New Year’s Eve capital of the Caribbean. Always a haven for celebrities at any time of year, the island brings in the new year with impromptu New Year’s Eve 'boat hopping' parties and stops at the many beach bars that dot the island. As the clock ticks towards midnight, step up on deck aboard your superyacht for a front row seat to the kaleidoscope of fireworks exploding over Gustavia Harbour.

Ring in the New Year in impeccable style

This French-speaking island is perfect for a lavish New Year’s Eve celebration. Think cocktails on deck, al fresco dinner with friends before cranking up the sound system to celebrate the passing of midnight. Expect relaxed, short-distance cruising as you island-hop through the Leeward Islands in the days following the celebrations. What better way to kick off your year than this?

Harbour Island, Bahamas

The Bahamas offers a variety of activities for parties aboard and ashore. From local restaurants, hanging out with friends at a lively beach bar, or your very own private sunset beach party, whatever you choose to do, the Bahamian culture will facilitate, with festivals, music, dancing and colourful parades continuing into the early hours. 'Fresh up' and enjoy life Bahmian-style.

The Bahamas is a blaze of bold colours and laid-back lifestyles

Harbour Island has recently come into the limelight with the arrival of a handful of chic new places recently opening on the island. With its pink-sand beach and pretty pastel cottages, the shoreline provides a perfect backdrop to sunset cocktails on board, followed by a trip ashore to a party at the legendary Vic-Hum Club. The oldest nightclub on the island, the open-air dancefloor at this humble yet iconic destination has attracted celebrities the world over.

Choosing the right yacht

From the crew to the layout, the facilities and even the décor, there are many facets of a yacht that, when combined, will influence the success of a superyacht party. The most successful charter yachts lend themselves to any type of occasion, be it a cocktail party or formal dinner party.

Some yachts and crews lend themselves to entertainment better than others

No matter what the style of celebration, there is a yacht to suit every taste. Likewise the crew can make or break a celebration, whether because they can theme any party in a creative way, or simply because the six-star service and smiling faces will give the party the right vibe.

Birthday parties, anniversaries, retirement, there's always a reason to celebrate

Burgess yachts with bars

Whether celebrating, drinking sunset cocktails, a pre-dinner drink or watching sports events, the bar on a yacht is generally one of the focal points on board a superyacht. They come in many forms, ranging from wet bars on the sun deck to sit-up bars in the beach club, sky lounge bars and cosy saloon bars, backlit-onyx bars, and elegant marble-top bars.

  • SECRET has a arc of marble-topped bar right next to the entertainment space on the main deck aft 3 of 4 photos
  • Of course bars can be set up anywhere, like this one on TRIPLE SEVEN's swim platform 4 of 4 photos

Have fun with a theme

Nothing says party more than people dressing up, and themed parties are almost always popular among charter guests. They create memorable experiences – even more so when the yacht is decked out in appropriately themed decorations.

A themed event adds theatre and means everyone gets into the spirit

From an elegant James Bond-themed evening, perhaps with poker and blackjack tables set up, to a retro-style '60s party with a dancefloor and appropriate playlist, or Pirates of the Caribbean, they can revolve around just about any concept imaginable.

A '60s theme comes with a deliciously groovy soundtrack

For those cruising in the Caribbean, consider a pirate party involving all the family. Many crews are well known for the creativity and polish of their themed parties. While keeping the younger guests entertained with a treasure hunt on the beach, you can enjoy sundowners on the sand.

A pirate theme comes with all sorts of fun narratives, treasure hunts and battles

Back on board enjoy drinks on the sun deck before dining al fresco on the main deck. If you're having a larger bash in port, have your pirate outfits sent ahead and the yacht dressed with pirate paraphernalia. Canapes and rum cocktails can be served in treasure chests!

Why are pirates called pirates? Because they Arrr!

While in the Mediterranean, perhaps cruising around the  Greek islands , a toga party might involve some Greek cuisine followed by dancing, and then a movie night under the stars with Mamma Mia or My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding on the big screen. Or while in Cannes, a Bollywood party, or in Monaco why not throw a Mexican fiesta during the Grand Prix?

A Mamma Mia party while cruising the Greek Islands? Why not!

Poolside parties

On the larger more modern superyachts spa pools are generally a given these days, and although some may be limited to a sun deck jacuzzi, the largest of the charter yachts usually have all manner of water features, ranging from infinity pools with waterfalls, glass-bottomed pools, swim-up bars, and pools with counter currents.

And then you have the real party yachts, with swimming pools that turn into dance floors, and built-in DJ booths for the ultimate occasion aboard. The 73m  TITANIA , for example, hosts her guests around the pool deck bar with seating for up to eight guests, and another four seats inside the pool itself, all complete with a DJ set up to create a real pool party atmosphere.

  • Pools can be hubs for activity or tranquility, however you like it 3 of 5 photos
  • A glass-fronted pool is also great for fun photos 4 of 5 photos
  • A great pool is a destination feature on a yacht 5 of 5 photos

Consider your guest list

Whether your party is a small and intimate affair or a large, quayside event, most yachts can accommodate up to 12 guests while cruising and hundreds more while berthed alongside, when different rules apply.

However, understated elegance is key, with fewer guests and more quality time to socialise. In fact, 100-120 guests is often considered the tipping point of human intimacy and interaction, so keep this in mind when considering a larger gathering.

In port regulations allow yachts to welcome many more guests


Entertainment systems have always played an important role in the overall yacht party experience. Audio-visual technologies have changed significantly over the past decade, and the most successful charter yachts feature the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art and fully-integrated entertainment systems throughout their guest areas. 

A tiered cinema and surround sound make sure everyone gets the best experience

From indoor and outdoor entertainment facilities, and the latest audio-visual equipment (including on-demand movies and music systems available throughout all guest areas and strong Wi-Fi for streaming), to private cinema rooms and outdoor cinema set-ups, almost anything available on land is also possible at sea.

An outdoor cinema screen delivers movies under the stars

Music and speakers

Music is an essential part of any party, and whether you prefer the dulcet tones of Adele during dinner or the pumping beats of a live DJ set during a dockside party, music always sets the tone. Surround sound systems for yachts with their own dedicated cinemas have become the norm, while built-in speakers on the party deck are fine tuned to deliver the best possible audio quality regardless of the musical genre.

Most charter yachts take sound quality very seriously indeed - the best of everything

Some yachts have a dual-purpose feature - a sun deck, for example - that transforms into a party deck after dark and music entices guests from open-air dining on the bridge deck below to party upstairs. Live bands are no longer de rigeur, instead world-famous DJs can be booked by your Burgess charter broker to come on board and play their set for your guests, with some big names keen to play private gigs.

A sun deck nightclub could welcome the biggest names in clubland

Gourmet dining with your own personal chef is obviously one of the principal attractions of any charter vacation, but however delicious the dishes may be, how your meals are presented will have a huge impact on the overall dining experience.

Why not bring a Michelin-starred celebrity chef on board for a private dining experience?

An al fresco or formal dining set-up large enough to seat the number of guests invited is of course a must. For larger, cocktail events, a few different open-air dining options are better suited. The trend for celebrity chefs catering for such large events is on the rise, working hand in hand with your own superyacht chef to create the ultimate tasty menu to wow your guests.

Huge swathes of guest deck space make for stellar entertainment

For some, proximity to the ocean is a must, so why not dine in a yacht's beach club right by the water’s edge. The 62m  BATON ROUGE , for example, features an ocean-level beach club that incorporates lounging areas and easy access to the water by day, and transforms into the ultimate al fresco dining area by night.

A huge beach club, like BATON ROUGE's, can really make a charter, day and night

Alternatively, many modern yachts feature Teppanyaki grills – perfect for guests looking to experience something a little different in a tropical climate. Plus you and your guests get the chef's table experience with wonderful dishes prepared before your very eyes and served straight from the grill.

A Teppanyaki grill adds a touch of theatre to any meal

The raised aft deck seating area aboard the 56m MY SEANNA can be converted into a dancefloor complete with state-of-the-art sound. There's also a backlit bar and lounge/dining area on the bridge deck, a 10-person spa pool that has its own bar, and a beach club at water level. 

Helipads present the ideal option for a dancefloor and a huge jacuzzi to cool your feet afterwards

The aforementioned 73m  TITANIA also features a beach club, complete with sauna, which can then be converted into a nightclub to continue celebrations into the night. You could even have your make-up and hair done in the yacht's beauty salon before the evening celebrations begin.

TITANIA's beach club transforms into a nightclub after dark

Special touches make it memorable

Details make all the difference. Ambient lighting, an attentive crew, the quality of sound or the welcome cocktail, the most successful and memorable superyacht parties are those where the crews have gone the extra mile. The occasions will usually dictate the type of party and the style.

Tablescaping is just one way of elevating your entertainment experience

For example, an anniversary celebration might have a more romantic theme, with soft lighting and candles, and elegant crockery and flowers all adding to the intimate sense of occasion. A New Year’s Eve celebration or birthday might however require more of a fun or risqué theme. Whatever you want, it can be done.

Romance is in the air! It's impossible for love not to blossom

Most of the yachts in the Burgess charter fleet are designed for entertaining, with guest areas outstandingly assigned to allow for all manner of occasions according to desire. The yachts in the selection above are just afew of those recommended by Burgess charter experts as welcoming celebrations.

What to Wear on a Luxury Yacht - With Dress for a Night

evening yacht party

S o, you’ve received an invite to a luxury yacht party and the wardrobe panic has set in.

We get it — a day or evening spent breezing around on a yacht calls for a great outfit.

While most of us are pretty comfortable with picking out an outfit to wear to a bar or cocktail venue, a luxury yacht might feel like uncharted territory.

The goal is to nail an effortlessly glamorous look as you would for any other party but to simultaneously tap into that relaxed, beachy vibe.

Not sure where to start?

We’ve got you covered. Here, we break down what to wear on a luxury yacht to ensure your outfit is as memorable as the event.

What to Wear on a Luxury Yacht 

If you’re heading out on a luxury yacht, why not go all out with a luxe outfit? It is in the name, after all.

So, the brief for your look is ‘glamour’.

As for the outfit itself, your decision will largely depend on whether the event is taking place during the day or after dark.

Below, we share our top outfitting tips for daytime and nightime luxury yacht events.  

Generally, daytime events feel a little more casual, but a daytime event on a luxury yacht? That’s an occasion that calls for something equal parts elevated and playful.

Think of it as the oceanic equivalent of a garden party or cocktail luncheon.

Of course, your outfit will need to be informed by the expected activities of the day.

If you anticipate you might be diving overboard for a quick dip, we recommend a high-neck ruffle hem mini dress.

The high neck feels chic and dressy, while the flippy hem adds a fun and relaxed element, ideal for the beachy environs. The high neck also means you can wear your swimwear underneath!

For boat parties strictly on-deck, we love a midi dress or two-piece set.

The beauty of this seaside location is that you have a little more freedom silhouette-wise than you would at a formal garden party or luncheon.

Overly structured silhouettes can feel a little heavy for a luxury yacht. Instead, lean into that tropical vibe with something that shows a bit of skin.

A crop top and skirt, a midi dress with cut outs, or something with a plunge neckline fits the bill. These shapes are location-appropriate but also feel a little more wearable for a sea adventure.

As for colour pallet, you could opt for hues that complement the environment (think lush greens and blues) or go all out with a vibrant rainbow-inspired look.

If colourblocking is your thing, make a statement with a hot pink or vibrant orange outfit with contrasting accessories.

For those who are more print-inclined, keep your accessories understated and let your dress or set do the talking!

Sir The Label Ambroise Knot Dress

The Sir The Label Ambroise Knot Dress is a sleeveless midi dress featuring a cut out at the waist and a knotted tie at the waist and shoulder. In a gorgeous floral print, this dress makes the perfect style for a yacht party in the warmer seasons. The perfect mid-length style to ensure you'll be comfortable for any activities that may come your way.

Aje Caliente Tiered Cut Out Dress

The Aje Caliente Tiered Cut Out Dress is an asymmetric midi dress in a beautiful daisy yellow colour. Linen dresses are perfect for more casual events as they are not as formal yet still make you look put-together. The daisy yellow is perfect for the summer season and this dress exudes elegance and sophistication. This stunning dress makes the perfect yacht party as it is on trend.

Zimmermann Aliane Ruffle Midi Dress

The Zimmermann Aliane Ruffle Midi Dress is crafted from linen and cotton. The dress features a self tie bow detail at the front and ruffled trimming alongside the shoulders, leading to a racerback with cut-out details. In the warm orange colour, this dress is perfect for a summer event. We love this linen fabric as it adds a sense of luxury, making it perfect for a luxury yacht party.

Evening Event 

If you’re spending your evening on a luxury yacht, there are two styling approaches we recommend.

The first is a breezy look. Think slinky midi dresses or relaxed wide-leg jumpsuits and two-piece sets. Look to plisse, silk, chiffon, crepe, and georgette fabrications. These materials tend to billow and float, giving you that dreamy, elegant seaside look.

With breezy silhouettes, look to softer hues such as greens, blues, and pastels. Avoid deeper hues such as blacks and reds, as these can feel a bit too weighty for a balmy location.

To accessorise your breezy look, add drop earrings and keep your hair out, toussled by that salty sea air!

The second approach is a sunset-inspired look. This is a winner if you’re cruising at dusk. Go for something in a glowy gold or orange hue. This colourway will work beautifully against the landscape of the sun setting over the ocean.

Midi dress silhouettes feel especially relevant for evening events. Look to styles that give you shape, but avoid bandeau or skin-tight pieces, as these tend to feel nightclub-esque.

A glowy finish is the goal here, so go for minimal, dewy makeup. We love this glowy makeup look .

Slip on some strappy mules and fine gold jewellery to bring the look together.

Bec + Bridge Moondance Strapless Dress

The Bec + Bridge Moondance Strapless Dress is one I'm sure you've all seen before as it was worn by Kendall Jenner herself. It is an elegant maxi dress that flatters all body types. We love this dress for formals, black tie events or dressed down to make it suitable for cocktail events . In a beautiful seaspray blue that is guaranteed to look good on all skin tones, this dress is perfect for an evening boat party.

Aje Serendipity Reflection Midi Dress

The Aje Serendipity Reflection Midi Dress is a mid-length dress with a corset inspired waist, made from a glossy linen material. Made mostly from linen, it is extremely comfortable and in colours blush,   champagne and navy . This style is perfect for those who want more coverage in a cocktail dress. This elegant dress can be dressed down with sandals for a more semi-formal, or with small heels to a cocktail party event.

What to Wear to a Casual Boat Party

So, maybe you’re not heading out on a luxury yacht, but you have another kind of boat party in your calendar.

Perhaps you’re heading out for a day on a deck boat, or you’re enjoying a relaxed evening on a sail boat.

In this case, we recommend something comfortable and casual, but with a playful flair. Our top picks? Shirred mini dresses, wrap silhouettes, shirt dresses, and floaty midi dresses.

A shirred mini dress feels fun and summery, especially when pared back with white sneakers. Go for a classic all-white look or bring some colour into the mix with a bright floral print.

Shirt dresses are notoriously easy to wear, so you know you’ll be comfy all day long. Whether you’re a print lover or you’re all about the classic white or blue shirt, you can’t really go wrong. The bonus? You can wear the shirt dress undone over your swimwear during the day for some extra sun protection (plus, it looks really chic).

Tiered midi dresses are a summer staple for a reason. They’re breezy, flattering, and can effortlessly be styled up or down depending on the occasion. For your boat party, add a boater hat and earthy-toned sandals for a laidback yet considered look.

If you prefer something with a little more shape, a wrap dress is the way to go. They’re designed to cinch in your waist, so they’re particularly flattering if you’re petite and tend to get lost in floaty silhouettes. Experiment with bright, vibrant prints (the hallmark summer vibe) or go for bold block colours. Keep accessories to a minimum if you’re going bright — a pair of sunglasses, a floppy hat, and sandals are the perfect finishing touches.

By Nicola Gabriella One Shoulder Midi Dress

The By Nicola Gabriella One Shoulder Midi Dress is a beautiful linen dress. This one shoulder style featuring a flowy skirt is perfect for summer paired with a cute pair of sandals for more casual event such as a boat party. This style is available in colours pink grapefruit and sunkissed orange .

evening yacht party

Rebecca Vallance Catania Mini Dress

The Rebecca Vallance Catania Mini Dress is made from a linen blend and features a floral print, puff sleeves, side pockets and an open back. This mini dress is perfect for the summer season as it is easy to wear and makes the perfect outdoor cocktail dress . Feel fun and flirty with this gorgeous mini dress that will flatter you in all the right ways.

evening yacht party

By Nicola Carnivale Maxi Dress

The By Nicola Carnivale Maxi Dress is a gorgeous linen maxi dress in a floral print. This style features a straight across neckline, cut out at the waist and thin spaghetti straps. We love this casual maxi dress for picnic dates, daytime events or boat parties.

  • Mardi Gras madness

Got your party hat on? Let’s dive right in.

Boatsetter’s happy to help—Throw your party on a boat rental!

1. Nautical extravaganza

Nautical theme boat party.

Lean into the magic of being on the water with a Nautical Extravaganza boat party theme. Think navy and white decorations, ropes, and sailor hats. Your guests can dress the part in sailor and captain costumes, or keep it simple with white attire and navy accents.

Whether you’re catering or cooking yourself, fish and chips is a simple classic, as timeless as the nautical theme! And you can spice things up with a signature Captain’s Punch or Blue Lagoon Cocktails.

2. Tropical paradise

Tropical theme boat party.

Transform your boat into a slice of serenity with a Tropical Paradise boat party. Illuminate your decks with tiki torches, hang vibrant palm leaves, and drape colorful fabrics to recreate the lush allure of a tropical oasis.

Bring this boat party theme to life with Piña Coladas and Mai Tais, served alongside coconut shrimp, Hawaiian BBQ skewers, and a tropical fruit platter!

3. Pirate adventure

Pirate theme boat party.

Plan a boat party with an adventurous twist when you set sail on a Pirate Adventure. Decorate with treasure chests, rustic maps, and skull-and-crossbones. Your crew can look the part with pirate hats, bandanas, and eye patches. For a fun activity, organize a ship-wide treasure hunt.

We recommend a themed menu with dishes like Buccaneer’s BBQ ribs and “Shiver Me Timbers” Seafood Gumbo. As for drinks, offer Dark ‘n’ Stormy cocktails, made with rum and ginger beer, or mix your own Pirate’s Punch.

4. Under the sea

Under the sea theme boat party.

Dive into the depths with an Under the Sea Fantasy theme. Use shades of blue and green, with shimmering decorations to mimic the ocean’s allure. If your guests want to go all in, encourage them to wear mermaid costumes, pirate costumes, or fish-inspired looks.

Serve up “sea-themed sips”, like an Ocean Breeze, made with blue curaçao and vodka, or a Seashell Spritzer (add edible glitter for an unforgettable sparkle).

5. Gatsby glamor

Gatsby theme boat party.

Gatsby Glamor is a gateway boat party theme idea. You can step back into the roaring twenties with a Gatsby theme, or pick whatever era excites you the most (60s, 70s, 80s, and so on!)

Sticking with Gatsby: infuse your boat with the opulence of the era. We recommend gold accents, Art Deco glamor, feather centerpieces, and a champagne tower. A live jazz band can set the tone of your luxurious affair.

Taste the twenties with a menu of Oysters Rockefeller, cocktail shrimp, and Gatsby-style canapés, complimented with Champagne Cocktails and Sidecars.

6. Neon glow

Neon theme boat party.

If you’re hosting a boat party after dark, a Neon Glow theme is the perfect way to light up the night. Illuminate your boat with black lights and fluorescent decorations. Enhance the atmosphere with neon-colored cocktails, glow-in-the-dark games, and upbeat music .

We recommend taking your boat party to the next level with a professional DJ and laser light show!

7. Hawaiian luau

Hawaiian theme boat party.

A Hawaiian Luau is another classic boat party theme idea. Your guests can kick back in Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, and flower leis. Colorful flowers, tiki torches, and bamboo décor will transform your boat into an island escape.

A Tropical Breeze Cooler is the perfect signature cocktail for your Luau. Mix coconut rum (or coconut water for a non-alcoholic option) with pineapple juice, orange juice, cranberry juice, and a splash of grenadine for a swirl of tropical flavors.

8. Mardi Gras madness

Mardi Gras theme boat party.

Capture the vivacious energy of New Orleans with the Mardi Gras Madness boat party theme. Bedeck your boat with traditional Mardi Gras colors (purple, green, and gold) and encourage your guests to wear masks, beads, and feathers to bring this theme alive. You can curate a festive ambiance by hiring a jazz band and serving traditional Cajun cuisine.

9. All-white party

All-white theme boat party.

For our last boat party theme idea, we recommend throwing a White Party. White parties are the perfect way to create casual elegance. Decorate your vessel with whites, creams, and soft ambient lighting. Guests should wear all white to fit the theme and create a fully immersive experience.

Top it off with a menu of white-themed drinks and dishes, like White Russians, Peach Bellinis, lobster rolls, and caprese skewers.

On hosting the best boat party

21 Epic Yacht Party Outfit Ideas + Tips

Inside: Amazing yacht party outfit ideas that you need to sea

So…you’ve been invited to a yacht party…welcome aboard! As someone who has had the pleasure of sailing the seas and attending my fair share of glamorous yacht gatherings, I can’t help but get excited about sharing some fabulous outfit ideas with you all.

Yacht parties are undoubtedly the epitome of sophistication and style, and choosing the perfect ensemble is a delightful part of the experience. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a first-time deck adventurer, I’ve got some fantastic insights on how to dress to impress while maintaining comfort and charm.

3 different yacht party ideas

So, let’s set sail on a fashion journey together and discover the chicest and most awe-inspiring yacht party outfits that will make waves and leave a lasting impression on everyone aboard! I am going to be adding these to my 20th birthday outfit ideas , because they are just perfect.

Table of Contents

Epic Yacht Party Outfit Ideas + Tips

Before I show you some examples of amazing yacht party outfits, I wanted to go over some of my top tips. This way, these can be fresh in your mind as you go through looking for inspiration!

1. Nautical Chic

Embrace the maritime theme by opting for nautical-inspired attire. A classic white and navy striped shirt paired with well-fitted khaki or white shorts or trousers can create a stylish and relaxed look.

If you are thinking about going a little more dressy, then you can always wear an evening gown that fits under this theme as well! I think the ideas below will help you find what style you are looking for.

2. Light and Breezy

Take it from me…since you’ll be out on the water, comfort is key. You need to choose lightweight and breathable fabrics like linen, cotton, or chambray to stay cool and composed even in the summer sun. I genuinly cannot push this point enough. You absolutely want to be stylish…but you also need to be practical.

Lucky for you, practicality and style actually do have many lines that intersect.

3. Dress to Impress

If the yacht party calls for a more formal dress code, consider a classy sundress for ladies or a tailored blazer over a crisp button-down shirt for gentlemen. It strikes the perfect balance between elegance and leisure. I love any excuse to dress up, so whenever I get invited to a fancier party, I really take advantage of it.

4. Hats and Sunglasses

This one is a subsection attached to tip number two. You are going to be on a boat, so you are going to want to include a cute hat and some sunnies. You can protect yourself from the sun while adding a touch of glamor with a wide-brimmed hat and a stylish pair of sunglasses that match your outfit.

Not only do they serve as practical accessories, but they also exude an air of sophistication. If you are going with your parents, you can look at these mom daughter matching outfits!

5. Deck Shoes or Sandals

Leave the stilettos and heavy boots at home! Opt for comfortable deck shoes or trendy sandals, as they are both practical and in line with the yacht ambiance. I once wore heels on a yacht and went home 4 hours later with the worst blisters I have ever had in my life.

Plus, with all of the swaying, I found myself exhausted from just standing in my heels. This is definitely not the vibe you want to bring to a party.

6. Accessorize minimally. 3 different outfits

6. Accessorize Minimally

Keep your accessories simple and minimalistic. A statement piece like a beautiful necklace or a stylish bracelet can add that extra touch to your outfit without being too overpowering.

If you have too many accessories, you may find yourself on the more high-maintenance side. If you are up for that, then you go for it.

7. Neutral and Pastel Colors

Embrace the coastal vibe with a palette of soft and breezy colors. Think whites, pastel blues, seafoam greens, and sandy beiges for a fresh and sophisticated look. If you couldn’t tell already…the whole goal you are going for is sophistication. I mean, this is true for most yacht parties, but it does depend on the person throwing it.

Yacht Party Outfit Ideas –  8. Versatility is Key

Yacht parties often involve different settings, from lounging on the deck to dancing in the evening. Choose outfits that can transition seamlessly from day to night with a few adjustments. There are quite a few outfits like this below, so make sure you keep an eye out for them.

9. Layer Up

Evenings on the water can get a bit chilly, so be prepared by bringing along a lightweight cardigan or a stylish jacket that complements your outfit. This might feel a little counterintuitive, but at the end of the day, I just want you to be comfortable. I have spent one too many nights uncomfortable on a boat. Life is too short!

Yacht Party Outfit Ideas  10. Confidence

Above all, wear your outfit with confidence and a smile! Your attitude is the ultimate accessory, and it’ll radiate positivity and charm throughout the entire yacht party. I think if you listen to all of my tips and tricks from above, you are going to show up to this party the most comfy and confident version of yourself.

I recommend saying some simple affirmations to yourself before you leave your house. You are the life of the party. Everyone loves you. And, of course, you’re outfit rocks!

If you’re invited to a yacht party, the invitation probably doesn’t include a dress code. But just because there’s no specific dress code doesn’t mean you can wear whatever you want. There are still some general guidelines to follow so you’ll fit in with the rest of the guests and look your best.

If the party is during the day, it’s generally considered appropriate to wear sundresses or skirts and blouses for women and slacks or shorts and polo shirts for men. In the evening, women might choose to wear cocktail dresses or sundresses while men might opt for suits or sports coats and slacks.

It’s always a good idea to avoid wearing anything too casual or too formal – aim for something slightly dressier than what you’d normally wear to the office. No matter how casual or formal your office is, you should aim for “business casual” or just slightly more dressed up than that.

If you’re not sure what kind of yacht party it is – whether it’s a black-tie event or just cocktails and appetizers on deck – err on the side of formality. You can always take off your jacket or shoes if you feel uncomfortable with how dressed up everyone else is, but it’s harder to add a tie at the last minute when you’re in a boat full of people.

If you want to look sophisticated and dressy but don’t have anything appropriate for a yacht party, simply wear a striking dress or skirt with high-end shoes and accessories, like an expensive handbag. No matter where the party takes place, you’ll fit in if you look elegant and glamorous – even if everyone else is wearing shorts and T-shirts.

If you’re looking for specific yacht party attire ideas but don’t know where to find them, consider shopping online. There are a lot of websites that specialize in yacht party attire for men and women – check out your favorite one to see what kind of outfits they have available.

Typical outfit items for women at a yacht party include:

  • Cocktail dresses in shades of white, cream or pastel
  • Dressy sandals and high heels
  • A unique necklace or piece of statement jewelry to add a pop of color
  • Typical outfit items for men at a yacht party include:
  • Swim trunks in black or navy with a polo shirt or button-down shirt
  • Men’s dress shoes like loafers or oxfords
  • Slacks, shorts, or swim trunks in solid colors to match the party theme (e.g., white for a seaside summer party; darker colors for nighttime)

It’s important to choose outfits that look good on you and flatter your body type. If you’re not sure what your best colors are, either ask a friend who knows style or look at pictures of how colors work with your skin tone and hair color. Also think about the occasion – when in doubt, wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident yet still fits into the general party theme (e.g., fun and flirty for a daytime dance party or elegant and sophisticated for a black-tie event).

Don’t forget about your face! You can accessorize with jewelry, sunglasses and hats – all without taking up too much space in your luggage – to complete your yacht party outfit.

What not to wear at a yacht party

  • Uncomfortable shoes and outfits that will leave you miserable, either physically or socially
  • Too much bling – many yacht parties are usually classy, so save the chunky necklaces and dangly earrings for another occasion
  • Baggy clothes like shorts with extra room (e.g., cargo shorts) – stick to tailored looks that fit well
  • Clothes you can’t walk, sit or dance in; no mini-skirts (e.g., too short), baggy pants (e.g., baggy cargo shorts), or wide-legged pants (e.g., like harem pants).

Should you wear a hat to a yacht party?

  • Hats are fine to wear for any yacht party, but keep in mind that the size of the hat (small or large) will depend on how formal the occasion is.
  • If you’re not sure, err on the more formal side and choose a fitted cap like a fedora; if it’s too small, your outfit won’t look right.
  • Avoid wearing a big floppy hat because it can block other people’s views, making them feel left out.

What to bring to a yacht party

  • A swimsuit – you never know when you might want to jump overboard! Make sure the swimsuit is easy to put on and take off. If you don’t have a swimsuit, wear a pair of shorts with a bathing suit top. If going topless is OK, then bring a bikini in case you decide to sunbathe on the deck or take a dip in the ocean.

  • A cover-up – whether it’s over your swimsuit when you’re headed from the changing room to the pool or when you’re in the dining area trying to find a seat, you’ll want something lightweight and easy to pack.
  • An evening or cocktail dress for nighttime events – this is optional but recommended if the party goes on long into the night.
  • A pair of earrings (if needed) for any last-minute events that might pop up when you’re already onboard.
  • Sunglasses and/or a hat – if you’re planning to be outside the whole time, bring sunglasses that will match your outfit or yacht party swimsuit cover-up. Hats are fine but think about how large they are before bringing one along; wearing it indoors can block other people’s views of the stage or band.
  • Sunscreen and any sunscreen-related products (e.g., lip balm; zinc). If you’ll be outdoors for hours, make sure to apply sunscreen regularly throughout the day as well as after getting wet (e.g., from swimming or saltwater).
  • A towel – having a fresh towel will help you stay comfortable, dry off after getting wet, and/or freshen up during the day.
  • A travel bag – because you’ll be moving from your room to different parts of the yacht every few hours, it’s best to have something to carry all your stuff in so you can stay organized. This will also make it easier for you to find where you left off when it’s time to go back to your room.

Wherever you end up going for a yacht party, the most important thing is that you have fun and stay safe!

A cocktail attire for men comes with some sense of formality, but not as formal as a black-tie or so on. Appropriate options include dress slacks accompanied by a matching jacket and tie.

You may also consider a full suit which is equally pleasant. The choice of colors should be neutrals and subdued tones rather than prints or bright colors.

Your footwear should be black or brown leather shoes that match the color of your leather belt. Oxford style shoes are the perfect shoe choice. However, loafers will also give you that attractive official look. Make sure your socks match with your pants.

Ladies look good in cocktail night parties in a midi-length or knee-length dress of a subtle or solid print. You may be torn the choice of colors for your dress, but a black dress is ever on point and perfect. Equally popular is the formal ladies’ pantsuit trend. Again, a black pantsuit nails it.

On the part of accessories, invest in less but quality jewelry . You can go for a single statement piece rather than several jewelry pieces. It is recommendable to avoid shoulder bags and go for a clutch instead. Put on black ballet flats or dressy sandals for your shoe choice.

Business Night Party

Meeting your workmates for a business function, regardless whether it takes place at night or during the day, does not require evening wear.

Most parties of this caliber dictate a business-casual dress code, implying that professionalism here is preferred to glamour.

If you are not decided on what to wear to a party at night for business matters, below is how you should dress up.

Put on a button-down or polo shirt matching with a well-pressed pair of khaki pants. For the outerwear, go for blazers, sweaters and sports coats, preferably black or brown. Some parties may specify smart or dress casually.

In such cases, opt for fancier versions of the above outfit such as dress pants in place of khakis or chinos. On your feet, put on loafers, dress flats or oxfords-all are equally gorgeous.

As a lady, a wrap dress, skirt or dressy pants accompanied by long-sleeved top wear will furnish your appearance. Accessories may include plain but fancy earrings, a shiny neckless and bangles. Avoid overstuffing of jewelry. Opt for less but quality. Kitten heels match perfectly with the wrap dress. Ballet flats suffice any other outfit among the ones stated above.

Dance Night Party

Dance Party at night on a yacht

In an evening dance party, you can wear casual clothes, but be dressy. The most appropriate clothing material will be soft, thin and flowy fabric.

Light jackets are recommendable since it gets chilly at night.

Wear comfortable pants, khaki or jeans. These pants should be accompanied by a dress shirt or polo, both of which will be admirable on your body. You may also include a light jacket as an outwear.

The best footwear for such a party is Sperry men boat shoes. Any other non-marking shoe type may also serve the purpose. Remember, a casual look is more suitable for this event, hence official footwear may not suffice.

For a lady, it is advisable to choose a skirt with flounces and waist dresses. You can also wear loose pants and dressy tops outfit. A more girlish look may be achieved by wearing a jacket or color-coordinated wrap.

Also, you may opt for a long dress assorted with an attractive chandelier earrings pair. Again, avoid too much jewelry and foundation since you need to be presentable on such an occasion.

For a nice footwear, you can wear low-heeled sandals or flats, since they match well with any type of outfit. Avoid high heels since they are not suitable for dancing, especially on a boat!

Dinner Party

An appropriate dinner attire on a yacht will depend either on the company’s dress code or the cruise line. Some lines insist on a specific dress code while others only give guidelines, leaving the outfit choice to you.

With that in mind, the outfit for a night dinner party may be formal, semi-formal, resort casual or casual depending on the guideline on the invitation.

A formal evening attire for men comprises of a dark suit matching with polished black dress shoes. Tuxedos are also suitable as an outwear on a plain official shirt. It should match with your choice of pants. Avoid polo shirts, khakis or boat shoes.

In a semi-formal setting, you can go for collared shirts and dress pants. Dark plain jeans are also acceptable.

You can wear golf shirts, button-ups, and khakis in a resort casual dress code. Your footwear will not go wrong with oxfords or tennis shoes. You can also take with you an attractive pullover or cardigan.

Casual dinners allow jeans, non-collared shirts, and sneakers. T-shirts that are tasteful according to the invitation standards may also be satisfactory.

Whole-length evening gowns, attractive jewelry, perfectly done hair and kitten heels make up the preferable formal wear for dinner. White or black knee-length skirts with long-sleeved tops also match well with kitten heels and give you a formal look.

Semi-formal settings are flexible and allow for cocktail dresses and dress sandals for the footwear.Sundresses, knee-length skirts, and capris are standard dress choices for resort casual dinner parties.

Stilettos and flip flops are nice shoes for such an event. A casual dinner atmosphere accommodates jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers. You should, however, avoid tank-tops and swimwears since they are too exposing.

Hi Daniella,

Thank you for this post, now i know how and what to wear especially for a yacht party !

the Monaco GP party looks so much fun ! eventhough i never attend a party in the yacht , this post will be my guide on what to wear before i get a wrong dresscode 🙂

. Hi Elbert, 

Yes, it is not always easy to know how to dress for a yacht party. I have participated in boat parties, and when you wear the wrong dress code, it is a bit embarrassing:) A yacht party is different than a party on land, so you really need to feel comfortable if you want to have a good time!  It is a good idea to take this article as a guide, I am sure it will come in handy when you’ll need:) Thank you for the comment!

Have a nice day!

This is great information for me as I have always been a tomboy, and definitely not a high-maintenance type of gal. So, I always fumble with what to wear for upscale events such as these. I am also going on a cruise this winter, so this is perfect information for me. So the dinners on the cruise, do I need to dress up each night for these? I need to have about 6 different “nice” outfits to wear? Or do they make several of them casual with one fancy? I have not a clue, LOL.

Great for you! I wish you to have a fabulous time on the cruise:) To answer your question, it is not an obligation to wear different attire every day on a cruise. Personally,  I would dress differently for each evening:). However, cruises have several chic nights where you have to dress elegantly and other evenings are required to dress smart casual. Bear in mind that each cruise has different dress code rules. So you better ask to the cruise management before you get on the on board. I hope it helped! Let me know if you need to know more info. I’ll be more than happy to assist!

Thank you for the comment and wish you a fantastic vacation on the cruise!

Nightlife City Guide

Moscow nightlife beautiful girls

Moscow: nightlife and clubs

Moscow nightlife: despite the freezing weather, the Russian capital gets hot as the sun goes down. Between discos, luxury, exaggerated parties and beautiful Russian girls, the Moscow nightlife offers everything you need for memorable nights.

Moscow nightlife

The city of Moscow is definitely one of the most interesting European cities: the stories about underground lines and secret bunkers, the architecture of its buildings, from the Kremlin to St. Basil's Cathedral, up to the Soviet style of the Seven Sisters and modern skyscrapers, make the Russian capital is a unique and fascinating city.

Moscow nightlife by night

One of the many things that Moscow is famous for is its wild nightlife . Moscow never sleeps. If there is anything true about Russians, it is that they love to party! Despite its freezing weather, Moscow turns out to be a hot city with endless fun, hip nightclubs, extreme luxury, beautiful Russian girls and lots of booze when night falls!

Moscow Russian girls nightlife

In fact, in recent years, the Russian capital has definitively abandoned the gray period of communism and its inhabitants have given vent to their desire for fun. As you might expect in a city of over 12 million people, Moscow has an amazing array of nightlife options and a huge choice for all tastes, whether you are a jazz fan, hardcore clubbers or just plain old alcoholics. The nightlife in Moscow winds through a multitude of alternative and transgressive nightclubs where the watchword is to meet new people and spend a night of unbridled and uninhibited fun . In addition to the numerous discos, in the Russian capital there are also 20 casinos open until dawn. For those who want a break of intriguing relaxation, in the city of Moscow there are also numerous massage salons .

Moscow nightlife

Most of Moscow's nightclubs contain a restaurant, a bar area and a nightclub (the larger ones also have bowling alleys, billiards and a casino!). Perhaps because Moscow is such a large metropolis with very cold temperatures and taxis are so expensive that the owners of the bars and clubs want to offer their customers an all in one place for night entertainment.

So, in other words, Moscow is not the best city in the world for bar-crawling, especially bearing in mind that these multipurpose venues often charge entrance, but rather it is better to carefully choose the club where to spend the night.

For a quieter and more sober evening, head for an evening stroll along the Via Arbat or the Red Square to be fascinated by the lights of the city and the grandeur of the buildings, and admire the shops and street artists. An alternative to experience Moscow's nightlife is to spend an evening of lyric, ballet or opera. The Russian capital is home to around sixty theaters, the most famous of which is the world-renowned Bolshoi Theater (Theater Square, 1, Moscow).

Moscow nightlife Bolshoi Theater

Moscow nightlife districts

Moscow's nightlife is not concentrated in a single district but is scattered throughout the city. However, there are areas with a greater concentration of bars and nightclubs .

The Krasnij Oktjabr (Russian for "Red October") complex, a red brick building located on the island in the center of the Moscow River that once housed a chocolate factory, is dotted with numerous trendy nightclubs and offers spectacular views of the river and the symbolic places of the Russian capital. This is where the most glamorous parties in Moscow take place, there are numerous bars, restaurants and art galleries.

Nightlife Moscow Red October Krasnij Oktjabr

Other neighborhoods with good nightlife are the old manufactory area near the Russian government building which houses some bars, the area around the Trubnaya metro and around Kuznetsky Most , while the Kurskaya groups the clubs with electronic music. We can also mention the area of ​​the Patriarch's ponds, an area that is teeming with quiet bars.

Moscow patriarch ponds nightlife

Clubs and discos in Moscow


The crowd is very mixed. Students, young professionals, techno lovers, tourists all gather at Propaganda. Everyone comes to enjoy the music and have fun. It is one of the few clubs where the dancefloor dominates and there are hardly any tables, apart from a few that overlook the entire space. Propaganda is a restaurant until midnight. You can come earlier for dinner and stay for dancing. After midnight, the staff clears the tables from the dance floor and the whole place turns into a club. The place is different from the usual Moscow restaurant / club hybrids, however, because the atmosphere changes completely from "relaxed restaurant" to "underground electro club". Not to be missed.

Moscow Nightlife Propaganda

There are more areas with different music. In the first area, expect a mix of traditional music and Russian pop songs. In the second, slightly larger area, there is live Russian pop music until 2am. After that it is mostly some kind of electronic music. The club is frequented by beautiful Russian girls around 18-25 years old, stunning students or models, and of course there is a good deal of young Russians, middle-aged men and foreign tourists trying their luck! Unlike many other nightclubs, the Icon is a pure nightclub and not a club turned into a restaurant. In any case, if you like to party in a big club and want to savor the typical Moscow nightlife , this is the perfect solution.

Moscow Icon Club nightlife

The crowd is the same as in other high-end Moscow clubs. Men are rarely under the age of 35 and are committed to giving the impression that money is not an issue. The women are amazing even by Moscow nightlife - if you want to meet Moscow's super models, this is the place! Ideal if you want to toast with the Moscow elite.

Moscow Siberia nightlife

The club is located on two floors. The lower floor is mainly frequented by people hanging out at the bar and is good for conversation. The narrow stairs that perfectly fit the student atmosphere of the club take you to the main floor where the real party takes place, complete with a bedlam and girls dancing on the bar counter. In the summer months there is also an outdoor terrace. The place is always crowded and bouncers unnecessarily queue people - having a table or someone inside can be the key to skipping the queue. Otherwise, you might end up waiting half an hour or more. Come early or come back late if you want to avoid the crowds.

Moscow nightlife Rolling Stone Bar

The crowd that frequents this club is quite mixed. People are less trendy and more underground. The place is suitable for afterhours, so most people arrive from 3am onwards.

Moscow Gazgolder nightlife

Immediately upon entering, you will have the feeling that you have come to the local high school graduation prom instead of a real Moscow nightclub. There is no real interior design, but basically just a large hall with a stage and a bar. The crowd is almost entirely made up of teenagers and young people. Not many of the teens speak English, but it probably doesn't matter after all the alcohol. The music ranges from Russian pop and hip-hop to the most famous international hits. Perfect if you want to party and drink alcohol in one of the cheapest clubs in Moscow .

Moscow Tipsy nightlife

Here too, it's full of beautiful girls and it's also a great place to hit them off, as those who come here are notoriously more approachable. The advice is to be very firm with the girls who approach and to make your intentions clear. If you want to be 100% sure to get in, come at 2am when the club is still uncrowded.

Moscow nightlife Miks Afterparty

Oblaka plays a mix of Russian and international pop music. Occasionally, as in many other clubs, there are performances by Russian pop singers. As is often the case in these types of clubs, the music and DJ are not the best but the guests don't seem to care.

Moscow Oblaka nightlife

Moscow's bars and pubs

The bar looks similar but still distinctly different than regular Moscow posh clubs. Most of the people who frequent this place are over 25, and you can find everything from young professionals to creative types to self-proclaimed models. Great if you want to see the "real Muscovites" celebrate without the overblown flashes of wealth. The proposed music is a strange mix of old and new commercial songs and Russian pop.

Moscow nightlife Bar Klava

Downstairs is a large open space that opens its doors wide in the summer. The interior is rustic, yet elegant, with wooden furnishings and plenty of seating. The interior combined with Ugolek's popularity creates a crowded yet intimate atmosphere, especially on weekends. People come to chat, drink and eat. The upstairs bar has a more welcoming atmosphere. It is smaller, with soft lighting and armchairs to be able to relax. On weekends there is a DJ who mixes electronic music and transforms the bar into a relaxed place, ideal for the pre-party.
