Evening Cocktail Party

Event planners have found an evening or afternoon cruise aboard the Ventura is an exceptional venue for summer entertaining: memorable, an opportunity to chat informally, and turn-key!  You provide the people, the yacht provides the rest.

An evening cocktail party for 15 to 25 guests allows the host to offer a "class act under sail." Surprisingly affordable!
