An oyster bar on the foredeck to kick off your private charter.

By far the most popular evening sail for our corporate clients entertaining their clients, summer associates or folks celebrating birthdays and anniversaries ending with the number "0."  Price range for this exclusive sail -- your guests only aboard the yacht -- averages $250 to $295 per person.  This cruise is tailored to your best schedule, and runs for two or three hours.  Your choice.  All cruises start from our home port of North Cove/Brookfield Place, Manhattan's premier yacht harbor, where you may glimpse some of the most glamorous private yachts in the world.  Our evening cruises feature an upscale cocktail party menu and a complimentary selection of imported ales, beers, red and white wines and soft drink bar. Starting at $3,750 for up to 15 guests, for two hours - or an additional $39 per person for three hours - Ventura comfortably hosts up to 28 persons aboard.  A  customized menu, cruise departure and return time built around your best schedule, and the fabulous charm of Ventura's authentic 19th Century solid teak decks under foot make this a summer evening sail experience your guests will long remember.  

A fabulous addition to our summer evening cocktail party cruise is a pre-sail sushi or oyster bar!  Enjoyed as your guests board, chat and get ready for the main event, oysters are shucked on deck, adding to the entertainment.  Top shelf iced vodka, sitting in a bed of crushed ice, accompanies this spectacular experience.  

This three hour evening charter is exceptionally popular for client or staff entertaining, special events, birthdays, anniversaries.
